Brentford and Swansea City lock horns in the richest game in world football as either side seeks promotion to the English Premier League.

The richest game in modern day football is set to be played at Wembley on Saturday as Brentford take on Swansea City in the Championship Playoff final.

The winner of the highly anticipated clash will win the ultimate prize of promotion to the English Premier League and an estimated 150 million pounds.

Brentford made it to the final after seeing off Bournemouth 4-1 in an enthralling two-legged encounter, while Swansea beat Barnsley 2-1 on aggregate.

This will be Brentford’s 10th overall and second consecutive Championship playoff final after losing 2-1 to Fulham in the 2019/20 edition.

They ended the regular season with another 12-game unbeaten run, securing third spot for the second season running and a play-off semi-final showdown against Bournemouth.

Swansea are seeking a return to the English top flight after a two-season hiatus, following relegation in 2018 after defeat to already relegated Stoke City.
