The Under-21 sides of Brentford and Blackburn Rovers will face each other in the final of the Premier League Cup at the Gtech Community Stadium on Tuesday, 9 May, kick-off 19:45 BST.
The Brentford B team, who include in their ranks David Beckham’s son, Romeo, will be facing Blackburn for the third time in the competition, with both teams winning the away fixture in their group D matches.
“Having played against Blackburn twice before, we are well aware that they are a very talented young team and we will have to be at our best if we wish to win the trophy,” Brentford B head coach Neil MacFarlane told the club’s official website.
“Our players have earned the right to play in this final, in a fantastic setting, and I know that they will give everything they can to ensure they have a successful evening.
"This will be the first time our B team will play at this wonderful stadium and everyone within the B team set-up is excited ahead of Tuesday’s final.”

The Premier League Cup was introduced in 2013/14 to enhance the competitiveness of the Professional Development Phase calendar with knockout football alongside the regular league campaign.
The competition is in the UEFA Champions League-style with 32 clubs in the main group stage from Premier League 2 as well as the Professional Development League.
Like Premier League 2, it is contested between Under-21 teams, with each side allowed five over-age outfield players and one over-age goalkeeper.
