Fulham vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 14 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
Fulham took advantage of Cardiff City’s slip-ups to overtake them at the second place of the Championship standings. The destiny is, however, not entirely in their hands yet given that the Bluebirds still have a game in hand. Nonetheless, Slavisa Jokanovic and his men are definitely favourites to earn the direct promotion at the end of the regular season if we take a look at their form.
It has indeed been a spectacular one since the Cottagers won eight and drew one of last nine league outings. Moving forward, they are undefeated in last 20 games in Championship. Whilst the Cottagers were always knows as the high-profile team when it comes to the attacking line, it’s the defense which made the difference in the last couple of weeks. Fulham kept four clean sheets on the bounce opening up the way to a four-win streak.
Making five in a row will require somewhat special display from Aleksandar Mitrovic & company since Fulham are about to tackle in-form Brentford side. The Bees hare also in a decent form and they’ll travel to the capital off the back of three consecutive victories in the competition. Dean Smith also has reasons to be thrilled with his side’s defensive efforts since Brentford did not concede a single goal en route to the three-win run.
Fulham vs Brentford: Head-to-head
Fulham lead the head to head tie by a single win ahead of 14th meeting with Brentford.
Interestingly, they are yet to clinch a victory over the Bees at Craven Cottage.
Four of five games there ended without a winner, while the Bees took one win in the process.
This term’s meeting saw a 3-1 victory for Brentford at Griffin Park.
Fulham vs Brentford: Prediction
Both sides will head into the game high on confidence. Nonetheless, we believe the time has come for Fulham to end the horrendous run in home matches against Brentford.
The Lilywhites won eight of last nine games in the competition and we have to back them to continue such an impressive spell of form in front of the home crowd.
We will alternatively back the low-scopri9ng contest given that both teams kept things tight at the back ion their recent fixtures.
