Fulham vs Newcastle United
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 12th May 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
Fulham has already been relegated, but they deserve praise for the fight that they have shown even at the face of imminent disaster. The team put on fine performances against some of the good teams in the league, like Wolves, Everton, etc. The team had a tough schedule set for them, when they had to take on Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Everton and Tottenham in consecutive home ties.
This particular set of fixtures most likely contributed to their relegation. Newcastle, meanwhile, had a great showing against Liverpool the other day. They stretched the Reds to within five minutes of taking them out from the league race. The team will very much wish for a satisfactory ending to their season.

Fulham vs Newcastle United Prediction
The current mentality of the teams will very much matter in the outcome of this tie. Fulham has already been relegated and realizes that this is their last appearance in the top division at least for a year, and they face the frightening prospect of topping the ultra-competitive Championship, in order to get to the Premier League once more.
Newcastle, on the other hand, successfully fought relegation, and even took Liverpool out of the title race, with a fantastic display of spirit the last day. They will surely want to sign off on their season on a satisfactory note. As such, expect them to feed on the hopelessness of their counterparts, and avoid a loss at any cost.
Fulham has performed very well against this team in recent h2h games, and if not for getting relegated, they would have held the upper hand. Still, it’d be hard for Newcastle to procure a clean sheet from this tie, and especially at this stadium, where they have suffered a lot. In fact, only once has Newcastle kept their half of the pitch clean of goals, at this venue, and that too 12 years back.
As such, expect the visitors to avoid a loss, but not goals.
