Fulham vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 20 June 2020
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage.
The Whites are firmly in command of a playoff spot at present. However, they would love to have a shot at the direct-promotion ticket, which is currently six points away from them.
The fact that the Whites have been performing well at home, while the Bees have been struggling in overall fixtures as well as on the road, gives the former hope for this weekend.
However, over the years, the Bees have a good h2h record against this opponent, and importantly, they have a 100% unbeaten record at this venue in such games. Likely, expect Fulham to avoid a loss at the very least this Saturday – but not a clean sheet though.

Fulham vs Brentford: Prediction
The Whites secured a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, against Bristol City. After a relatively silent first half, things got a bit competitive in the next 45 minutes. The home team fired in the first goal in the 70th minute.
Though it seemed that the hosts might be running away with the three points, the Whites managed to slot in the equalizer just six minutes from final whistle.
In the meantime, the Bees recorded a massive 5-0 win at home the previous match-day, against Sheffield Wednesday. The home team dominated proceedings right from the get-go, and were leading 3-0 by the 40th minute.
Later, they added two more goals to complete the humiliation of the guests. Embarrassingly, Sheffield Wednesday were not able to even score a consolation goal.
As things stand, the Whites have the upper hand. They were unbeaten in 14 of their prior 17 overall fixtures, and even won seven of their past nine appearances at home.
On the other hand, their counterparts have a total of two wins from their preceding seven games, and they have won just thrice on the road in the past eight months.
Considering these stats along with the fact that the White were competing in the Premier League the last season – it’s evident that Fulham are unlikely to lose this weekend.
Be that as it may, understand that 100% of h2h encounters at this venue had goals from both teams, and that the guests have a 100% unbeaten record in h2h encounters at this venue.
Moreover, they are desperate as well to secure a direct ticket to the top flight. As such, expect goals from both teams this weekend.
