Brentford will take on Arsenal on August 13 in the first round of the AFL. Brentford has been promoted, the team claimed promotion two seasons in a row, and still got their way. Arsenal failed last season, we should expect progress from the Gunners.
It is obvious that the team needs to strengthen the squad. The work in this direction is underway, we managed to sign a few newcomers. Daniel Oyegoke came from Arsenal, Frank Onyeka from Midtjollann, Kristoffer Iyer from Celtic and Miles Peart-Harris from Chelsea. It is possible that before the transfer window closes, Brentford will somehow be able to strengthen their squad.
In the Championships the team was famous for its attacking style. And if you take friendlies before the start of the season, they often turned out to be effective. I would like to believe that the team will not deviate from their plan and not become another “bus”.
Arsenal have made spot purchases this summer. Nuno Tavares was bought from Benfica, Albert Lokonga came from Anderlecht and defender Ben White was bought from Brighton for £50m. White is Arsenal’s main purchase this summer, but his transfer value still leaves questions.
Arsenal needs to think about how to make a quality leap forward. The team has been left without European competitions, and can fully focus on the affairs of the championship.
Brentford” made it to the APL for the first time in its history. Arsenal have gone without Eurocups for the first time in 28 years. Brentford striker Ivan Toney scored 33 goals in 48 games last season.
Brentford debut in the APL, for him it is a historic moment. You can not worry about emotions and the right attitude, the players will do their best. Brentford last season performed exceptionally efficiently. This team likes and knows how to play offensively. But Arsenal also came for three points; you need to confidently enter the new season. “The Canaries have played six friendly matches, and in all of them conceded at least one goal. We expect a bright game from this clash. Brentford will be on emotion, and Arsenal will try to decide the outcome through their class.
