Manchester City will bring the curtains down on a successful Premier League season this Sunday when they travel to Corh Ground to face Brentford.
Like their visitors, the hosts have also enjoyed this season thoroughly, producing some classic performances at home and away to leave them on the verge of a top-seven finish.
Even the unfortunate news of Ivan Toney’s ban has not halted the Bee’s momentum, with a 3-1 win over Tottenham in their last outing proving their stability.
That win means they still can finish in the top seven, with two points behind seventh-placed Aston Villa. So a win here and losses for Villa and Spurs will mean they compete in Europe next season.
While the chances of that happening isn’t exclusively in their hands, they will want to win here at least to ensure they take their chance if the opportunity arises.
They will fancy their chances here after winning City in the reverse fixture.
Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola’s side will travel to City Ground looking to avoid a losing league double against Brentford for the first time since 1937/38.
However, this game’s result will ultimately pale insignificance for the Premier League champions, who have crucial FA Cup and Champions League finals on the horizon to achieve an elusive treble.
A trip to London to round off the PL campaign is unlikely to faze the Cityzens, who have already won five of their six league visits to the capital this season (W5, L1). Moreover, they could become the first team in PL history to win six London away games in one campaign if they can turn Brentford over, a seemingly likely outcome when considering City’s incredible unbeaten competitive form (W20, D5).
