Historical! After several attempts, Brentford is finally back to tier 1 in English football, 74 years after his last appearance, beating Swansea 2–0 in the play-off match to rise to the Premier League.
The historic London club, the eternal rival to Fulham, Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea, had already finished the tournament several times in the supplement area, but now it was the first time that they had been able to take the decisive step of most media leagues in the world.
A victory that began in the 10th minute at Wembley Stadium, with a penalty kick, with Evan Toni, the tournament’s top scorer. Ten minutes later, Brentford doubled the lead with a goal through Emiliano Marcondes, a result that remained until the end.
The poor reaction of the Welsh Swansea ended up fading in the 67th minute, when the team was reduced to ten with Jay Fulton sent off, in direct red.
The party was even for the “bees”, a Brentford symbol that, in this way, secured an astronomical income of over £ 100 million for the TV rights associated with the promotion.
Brentford will thus be the 50th team to play in the Premier League since its inception in 1992.
