Fulham vs Cardiff Prediction & Match Preview

Fulham vs Cardiff
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).

As far as Cardiff is concerned, the most important tie they have left in the season. They are in the relegation zone and needs to overcome a deficit of three points from the next three match-days. They are targeting Brighton’s position in the table, and considering Newcastle is pitted against them, Cardiff will go all in for the three points this weekend.

It will help their cause that their opponent is Fulham, a team that has already confirmed their relegation. With no aim or will left to fight for, Fulham looks the shadow of a team they once were. If Cardiff is able to cash in on this advantage, they can probably take a positive step towards their future.

Fulham vs Cardiff Prediction

For Cardiff, this is a game for survival. They face a long exile of at least one year if they are not able to make up a difference of three points in the next three match-days. The fact that Fulham is already relegated, and that they have no passion or desire to battle on pointlessly, gives Cardiff hope that they can bring something positive out of this tie.

Moreover, Cardiff had won the reverse fixture of the tie, and that too with a scoreline of 4-2. Going on, Fulham lost eight of their last ten ties, and 12 of their last 15. At home, they lost four of their last five, and six of their last eight. Meanwhile, despite being on the road, Cardiff managed to defeat relegation-battlers like Southampton, Brighton, etc in their last five away ties.

Finally, only once has Cardiff lost at this venue in the last 20 years. With their future on the line, expect the team to make this chance count.
