Birmingham vs Fulham
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 9 November 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: St. Andrew’s Stadium (Birmingham).
With their incredible home record so far, Birmingham fans will be hopeful of a good result this match-day. This presents them with further opportunities too. They might be placed in the mid-table at the moment, but keep note that the squad trails by only six points behind the second position in the table, and a surplus of just three will give them a spot in the playoff zone.
Fulham could make things tough though. They do have the experience factor going on for them. The team had been a part of the Premier League last season and got relegated at the end of their campaign. Without the need to mention itself, it’s evident that the prime objective of the cavalry is to get back to where they believe they belong.
Likely, a very tough encounter is in the making.

Birmingham vs Fulham Prediction
Pep Clotet’s men won their latest home tie, with a convincing performance. They toiled against the incoming Luton to find the back of the net first, and though the guests fired back one in the 67th minute to equalize, the grit of the home team prevailed. They found their winner just eight minutes from full time.
Fulham meanwhile had no such luck. They were completely dominated the last day, and that too at home. Playing hosts to Hull, the squad conceded three goals in a row to lose the fixture.
The chances seem high for such an ending this match-day too. The Blues are on a three-game winning run in front of the home crowd and won five of their last six as well. They have also won three of their preceding five overall games.
Opponents the Whites, on the other hand, have mere three wins to boast of, from their preceding twelve fixtures, and just three from their past 20.
Finally, for the last five years, the hosts of the particular days, and especially Birmingham has dominated h2h encounters as well.
Taking these observations as indicators, count on Clotet’s men to emerge victorious this weekend.
