Swansea City vs Brentford: Score prediction, team news, odds, live stream, TV, tickets, h2h – FA Cup preview
Brentford are out to book their place in the last eight of the FA Cup when they take on Championship rivals Swansea on Sunday.


The Bees have reached the fifth round stage for the first time since 2006 and are looking to reach the quarter-final stage for the first time since 1989.






Safe of the relegation zone (for now) and adrift of the playoff race, Brentford fans will be eager for this cup run to extend past this weekend.


Swansea’s top scorer Oli McBurnie is in line to start in Sunday’s FA Cup fifth-round clash with Brentford after struggling with illness.


McBurnie has scored 16 goals so far this season but has made limited appearances in recent weeks due to flu, although could return to the starting line-up this weekend.


Swansea manager Graham Potter wants his side to focus on fellow Sky Bet Championship opponents Brentford and not the potential perks of an extended cup run.


Swansea has won their last five meetings with Brentford in all competitions, including a 3-2 win in December in the Championship.


The only previous FA Cup meeting between Swansea and Brentford was in the first round in 1971-72, the Swans winning 3-2 after a replay.
