Birmingham City vs Fulham
English League Championship
Date: Sunday, 6 May 2018
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: St. Andrew’s Stadium, Birmingham.
Fulham won six and drew one of last seven league games, but such streak will count for little if Cardiff City claim a three-pointer at home against the out-of-form reading on the final day. The Lilywhites sit a single point short of the Bluebirds in the battle for the automatic promotion to Premier League.
The team led by Slavisa Jokanovic will try and do their part on Sunday afternoon when they travel to St. Andrew’s to take on the relegation strugglers Birmingham City who need a point to secure the survival in the elite. The Blues are thus in a very complicated position ahead of the clash with the promotional chasers and they could easily drop down to League One with a defeat in the last round here.

Birmingham City vs Fulham: Prediction
Gary Monk’s men defeated Sheffield United in the previous hone clash in the league, but they quickly returned to the old habits, falling 3-1 away at Queens Park Rangers in the following game. Birmingham thus lost three of last four league affairs and they shipped two or more goals in each of these losses.
This should be the music to the eras of Aleksandar Mitrovic who inspired Fulham’s rise in form over the last couple of months. The Serbian forward took his league tally to 12 by scoring a goal in third consecutive match last Friday when the Cottagers saw off the rock-bottomed Sunderland 2-1 after comeback in the capital.
Fulham bagged five goals in last two league games and they should really be in position to net at least twice past the struggling defensive line of Birmingham’s here. You can back this bet at the odds of 1.66, while the Cottagers are 1.75 to clinch the victory here.
