Fulham vs Middlesbrough Match Preview
Fulham will be coming after a 0-1 win on the road against Hull City in their previous league encounter. Also, they have lost only one game in the last five Championship clashes.
After four consecutive wins in the league lately, Middlesbrough faced Derby at home which ended in a 2-2 draw. The visitors have been unbeaten for the prior five games.
Fulham vs Middlesbrough Prediction
Having 11 points lead over Middlesbrough will give Fulham an early advantage based on overall performance in the game. However, based on their most recent league performances, Middlesbrough is on better composure in the campaign.
So, we cannot expect Fulham to take all three points that easily. Probably, there will be a fightback from the visitors at Craven Cottage. As such, we can expect both teams to score goals in the game.
Besides that, Fulham has been performing decently at home with just four losses in their 14 appearances at home so far. Also, they have marked three wins in their last five home matches.
On the contrary, Middlesbrough has won only two of their 13 away games in the campaign this season until now. Even so, their only two wins have come in their last two trips on the road.
Hence, we can expect Middlesbrough to put up a fight but it is unlikely for Fulham to lose at home. So, Fulham will probably take all three points from the clash in ninety minutes.
