Cardiff City vs Fulham
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
These two sides will be meeting for the first time in an EPL fixture since being promoted into the top tier this season.
The Bluebirds have obviously found themselves between a rock and hard place. They have not won any of their eight played matches. Currently, they are in the relegation zone and may be there for long unless they improve on their mode of play.
They remain beaten in the last five consecutive fixtures. This does not sound great, putting into account the fact that their main aim at the beginning of the season was to keep away from relegation. they have this home fixture to utilize and redeem themselves.
The Cottagers are not in their peak performance because they had suffered two back-to-back losses before heading into the international break. Additionally, they remain winless in their last five fixtures. In fact, they are just 2 points away from the relegation zone. They will do everything that is humanly possible in this matchup and keep off the relegation zone.
Fulham will have been glad to have a fortnight off to try and regroup following their 3-0 thrashing by Everton and another hammering to a 5-1 loss at home to Arsenal. This clearly shows that the team is currently suffering from internal woes and they may not come out of this away game with any impressive results.
