Bees and Citizens already have a settled life in English and achieved goals
(updated at 1:37 am)
This Sunday, at 12:30 pm (Brasília time), Manchester City visit Brentford at the Community Stadium for the last round of the Premier League. Already champions, the Citizens reached their fifth title in six years and, without further pretensions, are already thinking about the two remaining finals of the season. Brentford, in turn, surprised and did a great job, appearing at the top of the English table. In the first round, the Bees won in a historic match at Etihad Stadium.
Brentford managed a great campaign in the Premier League this season, finishing in the first part of the table. Thomas Frank brought out the best in his players and relied on the attacking power of Ivan Toney – suspended for betting involvement – for the good performance. The team can still reach the Conference League if Aston Villa and Tottenham do not win their commitments and the team beats the Citizens. And for such a mission, the team has the recipe: in the first round, Toney scored twice and led his team to triumph, with the decisive goal scored in the 98th minute of the game.
With the title of the English Championship already assured, Pep Guardiola and Manchester City have nothing more to look forward to in this edition of the tournament. It was the fifth title in six years in English, all under the baton of the Spaniard. Now, the main team rests and takes their foot off the accelerator, as they still have the FA Cup decision against local rivals Manchester United and the Champions League final, the main objective of the project, against Inter Milan. This Sunday, despite the drop in the first half of the season, the record is in favor: there are nine wins, two draws and six defeats in the x-ray against the Bees.
