Fulham vs Exeter City
England – League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 28 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage, London.
Aleksandar Mitrovic inspired Fulham’s maiden victory in the elite class of the English football as the Cottagers cruised past Burnley in what ended up to be a six-goal thriller on Sunday afternoon at Craven Cottage. The Serbian forward completed a brace before handing out an assist for Andre Schurrle’s goal seven minutes from time to deservedly claim the “Man of the Match” award.
Slavisa Jokanovic will definitely give his main predator a rest for the mid-week League Cup tie with a League Two opposition Exeter City, but he still has a host of high quality players capable of filling the rivals’ net to the max on disposal. Winger Ryan Sessegnon skipped the mentioned victory over Clarets (only came on from the bench in the last minute of the game) and he could be used from the start here in order to regain the confidence with a potentially strong attacking performance.
Fulham vs Exeter City: Head-to-head
This will be the first head to head encounter since 1996 for these two sides.
Back then, they were battling it out in League Two (mainly) and League One (occasionally).
The Cottagers won four and lost three ahead of their ninth meeting with the Grecians.
Fulham vs Exeter City: Prediction
Exeter City picked up ten points from five rounds in the fourth tier of the English football, but they’ll come into this in low spirits having suffered their maiden defeat of the campaign. It came on Saturday afternoon away at Milton Keynes Dons (1-0). They are now three points shy of table-toppers Lincoln City and with the promotion to League One football being Matt Taylor’s main goal for the season, we can expect the visitors to mix up their cards here at Craven Cottage.
There are three divisions separating these two teams at the moment and it is really hard to imagine any other scenario but a convincing victory for the locals. The home win is a banker at 1.40, while braver punters can back Fulham to win by two or more goals at the 1.95 odds.
