Fulham vs Blackburn
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 5 March 2022
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.
Fulham continue to keep a firm hold on the top-most spot, and are going after the title. The season has entered its final stages, and the team now has a realistic chance of winning the Championship. More than that, they have an opportunity to get directly promoted to the PL.
They have been in spectacular form all through the campaign, and particularly their offense has simply been on a higher dimension – compared to the other squads in the league.
Moreover, they have performed terrific at home this season, and they are also a team that were relegated from the top flight recently. This experience will count a lot for them.
Meanwhile, Blackburn too are one of the best in the competition, and are going after a top-six finish. But they are comparatively weaker to the toppers, and importantly, lately they have been going through a worrying stretch of performances. Moreover, they have a poor h2h record against this rival as well.
For these reasons, expect a win for Fulham this Saturday at the Craven Cottage.
