Brentford v Swansea team news

Brentford: Rico Henry is available to play after having his red card rescinded from the first leg.

Emiliano Marcondes could come into the XI after featuring from the bench last time out.

Swansea: Kyle Naughton is back from a three-match ban but Cooper may be reluctant to change a winning formula.

Wayne Routledge missed the first leg and is not expected to recover in time for this one, at least not from the start.

Our prediction: Brentford v Swansea

Neither team should be written off ahead of this one. Many people have tipped Brentford to cruise through, completely forgetting the events of their last encounter.

The Bees made chances, and on another day would've converted them, but Swansea have a tangible goal on the board, and that is worth defending.

Brentford may win the battle, but Swansea, playing without fear, with nothing to lose and little in the way of expectations, may just have the freedom to win the war. Somehow.

Our prediction: Brentford 2-1 Swansea (Swansea on penalties)

(Brentford to win 2-1: 15/2 at bet365)
