With a quarter-final tie at a Championship side, Newcastle fans will be reminded of their long wait for a trophy ahead of this one. Steve Bruce has made a real effort to take the Magpies deep into cup competitions, but Brentford have a knack of stopping top-flight sides.
The Bees have gone 13 games without losing, while they’ve claimed five wins from their last eight. Brentford have gone eight games unbeaten at home, following a comfortable 3-1 win over Reading at the weekend.
Brentford have already taken out three Premier League sides to reach the last eight. They face a Newcastle side who have failed to win four of their last five on the road in this competition.
