Wolverhampton Wanderers Vs Brentford – Brentford mocked Wolverhampton Wanderers in the first half, but in the second, home manager Bruno Lage blamed the opponents for a slight fall.

Brentford played the last 25 minutes with 10 men after midfielder Shandon Baptiste was sent off for two avoidable fouls, but Wolves failed to fulfill their only goal.

Wolves, who ended the game with six forwards, came closest to goal with a first-half shot by Adama Traore.
“I saw so many players on the opponent’s floor – and the goalkeeper changed gloves!” Lage said.
“Given how their players played in the last 45 minutes, you can manage the game differently.
“It was a lot – if you do it once, two or three – it’s okay, but sometimes there were a lot of players.”

“I can ask him: what would he do if he ran a newly promoted team – the bus station in Hounslow – with a budget 10 times smaller when you are leading 2-0 and you have 10 against 11, I think. his players will be wasting time,” Frank said.
“As for the goalkeeper, he had a big hole in his glove and I will take a picture and put it on the site.”
Brentford put the ball into the net in the ninth minute when Tony landed Mbeumo a low cross that was offside.

There could be no complaints as Fernando Markal intercepted Toni from Sergi Canos’ corner.
Two minutes later, Brentford was denied a second try, handballing Tony when he lifted the ball and put it back in after Sa denied Vitali Janelt and Mbeumo cleared the lost ball.
Traore broke into the crossbar with a powerful move that deflected the ball off Ponto Jansson as the Wolves attempted to hit back.
Lage later claimed that Francisco Trincao at the time of Traore’s shot was also blamed for the penalty incident.

Max Kilman made a very easy try against Tony and the striker flew past him and then crossed Mbeumo who lost his marker Romain Saissa and hit the target.
Brentford were reduced to 10 men in the 65th minute when Baptiste was sent off for a second punitive offence, for a foul on Trincao – just six minutes after his first yellow card.
All the Wolves managed to put together was a header from Raul Jimenez, who fell after a cross from Traore in 87th.
Newly minted player Hwang Hee-chan entered the field at the start of the second half for the Wolves and looked cheerful. Check this:

He had a quiet second half but did enough in the first to win today’s award.
Mbeumo hits the rock! On the counterattack, he gets between his defenders and gets hit from outside. He could close it there.
Five in the box and another cross from Traore, but he gets under him, and it’s way beyond.
Jimenez is coming! Traore crosses and Jimenez gets up, but the ball goes wide!

In the second half, Toni is quiet, but he sees that José Sa is not on his line and tries to grope him.
ATrincão’s free kick goes wide. A good chance is passing. Brentford is now doing everything possible to reduce the time.
Fabio Silva replaced Semedo in Wolves. All external attacks. Looks like they went two back now!

The flag has stood there for many years. Hwang was clearly offside, the goalkeeper raised his flag, but the referee does not play until the Wolves kick.
The wolf moves forward with a quick counterattack. It ended up going nowhere, but gaps are opening up now as Brentford struggles to close the gaps with 10 players.
Crazy challenge of Batista, who receives a second yellow card and is sent off. Both calls he was given were unnecessary. Can the Wolves make a difference with an extra human?

And another cross from Traore, but no one was hurt… They need more players in the box if they’re going to take advantage of this menacing run from Traore.
Neves challenges Batista, who is about to score a goal. He goes into the book for that. Brentford free kick from 30 yards.
Amazing at the Hwang base. He almost has to go from the left side of the Brentford goal but stays on his feet and gets past his man but can’t reach his teammates in the center. Great innovation there. The audience at Molineux loves it.

Hot Off The Press: Wolves
Traore closes the canopy and passes Raya. It was so close to the entrance! It took a dunk from one of the Wolves forwards. Where were they?
Several Brentford players walked out of the penalty area and received medical attention. Now they are back on their feet.

Newly promoted Brentford are well organized and take risks when they arrive. Two uncounted goals could easily turn into four.

Canos goes to the right, today they looked confident on this side, but Moutinho’s shot does not let the attack die.
The wolves are trying to build up here, but there is no passage. Tony comes out of another counterattack, but returns to José Sa.
Yellow card for Saissu. He’s going hard for Tony in the middle lane. Second yellow game for wolves.
Directly on the counterattack, Brentford quickly enters the field, Toni gets past the right center back, goes inside and drops Mbeumo, who scores easily.

The wolves are overreacting here. Several attacks are on the way, but this solid Brentford defense proves hard to break.
What a blow from Traore! He runs 20 yards and concedes, but takes the place of the Brentford defender and hits the crossbar.
In the end, there was no offside, but he touched Tony’s hand before he stepped on it with his foot and won the handball.
Toni takes two steps forward and takes a penalty from below, waiting for the goalkeeper to make the first move. José Sa receives a yellow card for missing a penalty.

Neves kicked out another corner. Good ball and the referee gives a free kick and they go to VAR for a penalty for Markal vs Toni.
Jimenez puts himself in a good position and gets a pass into the box, but no one can get into the box.
Here Brentford slowed down the pace of the game and controlled the center better. This leads to an attack that quickly stops after Henry fails to escape.
Traore runs forward and hits for 18 yards, but misses the target. This is the closest chance the Wolves have had so far.

Traore again threatens on the left flank. He shows great power to get his team to drop the ball before the Brentford defense clears it out. Another throw.
Traore with a lumbago wrapped in a corner. It was brought in, but it was gone before Marsal landed another long shot that went wide.
Missed goal. Mbuemo is a few yards away before passing the ball to Tony. An early chance for Brentford against the flow of the game.
The hosts dominate here in early possession. They build well in the last third and look confident with a lot of bodies up front.

Good handling of wolves. It ends up twisting Marsal at about 20 yards, but it’s wide.
