Saturday's Championship playoff predictions including Brentford vs. Bournemouth

Sports Mole provides score predictions for both of Saturday's Championship playoff semi-final second legs - Brentford vs. Bournemouth and Swansea vs. Barnsley.

Brentford play host to Bournemouth in the second leg of their Championship playoff semi-final needing to overturn a 1-0 deficit.

A second-half goal from Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld proved to be the difference at the Vitality Stadium on Monday night, giving the Cherries a slender advantage ahead of Saturday's reverse fixture.

We say: Brentford 2-1 Bournemouth

With the tie in the balance, neither team will be able to excessively commit during the first half of this contest. Nevertheless, we expect a stronger performance from Brentford in the final third, one which could take this tie to extra time and potentially penalties.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Swansea vs. Barnsley (Saturday, 6.30pm)

Holding a 1-0 advantage from the first leg of their Championship playoff semi-final, Swansea City will be looking to finish the job when they welcome Barnsley to the Liberty Stadium on Saturday evening.

Andre Ayew scored the only goal of the match at Oakwell on Monday to hand the Welsh club a one-goal lead heading into what should be a fascinating second leg between the two sides.

We say: Swansea City 2-1 Barnsley

There is no question that Barnsley are capable of overturning the one-goal deficit, but we are finding it very hard to look past Swansea here. The Welsh outfit have quality throughout the side and should have enough to win on the night and advance to the final of the playoffs.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.
