The unique stat that shows why Brentford away is Liverpool's bogey ground

Liverpool are gearing up for a crucial showdown this Saturday as they face Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium - but the encounter comes with a peculiar statistic looming over the Reds.

Despite being one of English football's top performers since the Bees' promotion to the Premier League in 2021, Liverpool have never managed to clinch a victory at the Gtech Community Stadium, making it their very own bogey ground.

This may not come as a great surprise, given that Brentford are only in their third season back in the top flight and the stadium only opened for the start of the 2020/21 season. In fact, the short history between Liverpool and Brentford at this venue only dates back to September 2021, when the two sides battled to a thrilling 3-3 draw.

The Reds' struggles continued in their most recent visit in January 2023, suffering a disappointing 3-1 defeat.

With these results, the Gtech Community Stadium stands as the only current Premier League ground where Liverpool are yet to taste victory.

Other tough away days

While Liverpool's record at Brentford stands out as particularly frustrating, it isn't the only venue to pose such a challenge.

Nottingham Forest's City Ground and Blackpool's Bloomfield Road also share a similar distinction, with Liverpool failing to secure a Premier League victory at either stadium during their respective top-flight spells.

However, it's worth noting that Liverpool did, of course, secure wins at these venues in the pre-Premier League era.

Time to break the hoodoo?

As Liverpool prepare to tackle Brentford once again on Saturday afternoon, Jurgen Klopp's side will be eager to shake off the curse that has haunted them at the Gtech Community Stadium.

With the Premier League title race heating up, every point is crucial, and breaking the Brentford hoodoo could provide Liverpool with a significant boost in their pursuit of domestic glory.
