Brentford have been one of the most impressive sides in the Championship in recent years and will be gearing up for their second successive playoff final. The Bees' return to Wembley Stadium nine months after losing to Fulham in last season's delayed play-off final, which led to their 2020/21 season getting off to a slow start. However, Thomas Frank's side bounced back in style to be in contention for the third and final promotion berth.
Meanwhile, Swansea were one of the clear favourites for promotion but ended the season with six defeats in 11, closely avoiding the embarrassment of missing out on the top six altogether. Swans last played in the Premier League during the 17-18 season and secured their berth in the final with a 2-1 aggregate win over Barnsley in the semi-finals. Promotion could be worth about £178 million to the winner and both teams will look to pounce on the jackpot with a stellar performance at the National stadium. Brentford are favourites and are likely to clinch promotion into the Premier League on Saturday.
Brentford will check on midfielder Christian Norgaard, who dropped out of the second leg of their semi-final win over Bournemouth because of an injury in the warm-up.
