We tend to see that the play offs are mainly about momentum rather than quality over the season, but Brentford’s incredible start tonight has turned that momentum back in their favour.
They struck early on after a rapid counter attack, and Marcondes has just put them 2-0 up on the night with an expertly guided header past the keeper:
"Brentford have come out fighting and Swansea City have hit the canvas!" ?
It's an unbelievable start from the Bees – Emiliano Marcondes doubles their lead with a superb header! ?

It’s a cracking ball from Benrahma because the angle isn’t really set up for a cross, but the ball is perfect and makes Marcondes’ mind up for him.
Benrahma was linked with a move to Chelsea again by Football.London in recent days, and performances like this on the big stage will only push that asking price up.
