Fulham vs Leeds
English Premier League
Date: 22 April 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
Fulham terminated a five-loss streak with a strong showing in the 1-3 victory over Everton last weekend at Goodison Park.
Marco Silva and the fans can feel relief as a win over the relegation-threatened opposition kept the Cottagers in the top half of the Premier League table, miles away from the relegation scrap.
In the absence of suspended Mitrovic, Fulham do struggle badly to convert chances. Silva decided to use Daniel James as a false nine seven days ago in Liverpool and it proved out to be a fantastic call as the team’s offensive part looked sharp on the occasion.
Harrison Reed, Harry Wilson, and Dan James were on the scoresheet last weekend for the Cottagers. We expect the same formation this Saturday when Fulham’s forwards should have even more space in the final third against the leaky Leeds’ defense.
Leeds are in huge problems going into this tie. Their defensive line has been non-existent in recent weeks as the team led by Javi Gracia allowed at least four goals in three of the previous four outings.
The Peacocks shipped as many as eleven goals in the last two league affairs and they are now only two points above the red zone line.
Fulham vs Leeds Head-to-head
- These two teams met each other less than two months ago in the FA Cup fifth round clash. Fulham won 2-0 back then at Craven Cottage.
- Fulham also came on top in the Premier League match, beating Leeds 2-3 in October last year at Elland Road.
- Overall, the teams have 11 wins each going into the 32nd head to head meeting.
Fulham vs Leeds Prediction
Leeds will travel to the capital low on confidence after conceding six goals in Monday’s clash against Liverpool at Elland Road. The story is completely opposite with Fulham whose attacking line did a great job in the 1-3 win over Everton seven days ago.
We like the look of the home win pick at the 2.30 odds, while the Over 2.5 goals FT is another well-worth backing option at the 1.90 odds considering how poor Leeds have been defensively of late.
