And they did it in emphatic manner, too, as they ripped the struggling Cottagers to shreds at their new stadium.
Benrahma scored twice, including a sensational solo strike, following Marcus Forss’ first-half opener.
But the cherry on top of the revenge performance was Benrahma’s second and Brentford’s third.
The Algerian star, 25, turned his man with a sensational bit of footwork all of 30 yards out.
After taking a couple of touches, Benrahma curled home a phenomenal strike to kill off the game.
Brentford will now advance to the League Cup quarter-finals for the first time in their history.
Chelsea, Crystal Palace, West Ham and Aston Villa have all been linked with a summer move for Benrahma.
But if nothing else, Thursday evening’s mauling only further highlighted Fulham’s defensive problems.Benrahma scored an incredible solo goal to show-off his undoubted talent[/caption] Benrahma scored twice on the night as Premier League clubs circle[/caption]
