Brentford vs Swansea City live online: 2021 Championship Play-off final today
Swansea City were in the Premier League as recently as 2018 but Brentford have faced a longer wait. The Bees’ last appearance in the top division was back in 1947 – the first league season after World War II. They have come close to returning on several occasions, taking part in nine play-offs, including four finals but missing out each time. Agonizingly, they were denied promotion last season after losing 1-2 to Fulham in extra-time in August's final.
On their way to this year's final, Brentford beat Jonathan Woodgate’s Bournemouth 3-2 over two legs while Swansea edged their semi-final by beating Barnsley 2-1 on aggregate.
In the two most recent regular season fixtures, Brentford beat Swansea home and away so unsurprisingly, they are the favourites with the betting houses. One of the reasons for that is that they finished the regular season as the top-scoring side with 79 goals, 23 more than Swansea managed – a large chunk of them came from ex-Newcastle frontman Ivan Toney, the division’s top scorer with 32 strikes. Thomas Frank's has all of his players available for the game apart from Rico Henry while Christian Nørgaard remains doubtful.
As for Swansea, there was heartbreak for left winger Wayne Routledge who suffered an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in the semi-final play-off against Barnsley. He will likely be out until the New Year and either Liam Cullen or Conor Roberts will take his place at Wembley. Midfielder Ollie Cooper will also miss out after twisting his ankle in training earlier this week.
