It’s Brentford v Fulham in the Championship playoff tonight!
Commonly known as the most lucrative match in football with a place in the EPL and an estimated R4-billion in expected earnings on the line, all eyes will be on the match tonight.
Brentford overturned a first leg deficit against Swansea to progress to the final while Fulham clung on to their first leg lead to get past Cardiff and reach the playoff final.
Brentford have never appeared in the Premier League and could become the 50th different team to play in the division if they get past Fulham tonight.
Fulham have been fairly regular Premier League fixtures, having spent 14 of the 28 EPL seasons in the top flight. Only six teams have been ever-present for all 28 seasons in the Premier League, namely Everton, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Chelsea.
The game has the added extra flair of being a London derby with the teams home grounds less than 8km apart in the capital. Brentford would become the 10th London-based team to play in the Premier League should they win the playoff.
The Brentford ‘Bees’ start the final as favourites and they have a reputation for living up to that tag, winning 73.81% of the times they have been the pre-match odds leader.
Fulham, however, are in a fine run of form and only saw their unbeaten 8 match streak ended in the playoff semi-final second leg despite their progression to the final.
