Fulham vs Burton: Head-to-Head Stats
The lone meeting between these two sides was during the second round of Capital One Cup 2013/14. The match went into the extra time after the scores were tied at 1-1 at the regular time. The teams will score again to finish the extra time at 2-2 which eventually went to penalty-shootout and Fulham emerge as winners to progress to the third round.
Fulham vs Burton: Prediction
Fulham will be desperate to bounce back from the home defeat against Birmingham on Saturday. They have made a good start to the season with 3 wins and 2 draws from their first five league games.
While Burton Albion are on a four match unbeaten run at the moment. But they are yet to win a game on the road this season. Fulham are a better quality side than those Burton have faced so far. So home side are strong favourites to come out with a win here.
Fulham have conceded in 8 of their last 10 home matches, while Burton have scored in every match this season. So an exact full-time score of 2-1 is very much in the cards here, which opens up a couple of potential bets.
