Fulham vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 18 July 2020
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London)
With two matches to go Fulham has secured a spot in the playoffs. Even if they lose the remaining matches they will keep the fourth spot in the table for sure. The last league action saw them lock West Brom to a goalless draw. This result ended their four-match winning streak that was going on.
The away team had to face some of the top teams in the two recent away fixtures. They lost both those games without giving much of a fight. Currently, they are on a two-match unbeaten run which will give them a morale boost coming into this game.
Fulham vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Fulham has two wins and a defeat in five previous meetings with this opposition.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals came in four of those five games across all venues.
- Sheffield remains unbeaten in their last three trips to this ground.
- The hosts are on a five-match unbeaten run in the league currently.
- The visitors are also unbeaten in their last two league matches.
Fulham vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction
In their current form, Fulham looks invincible in front of their home crowd. The six wins they have in their last eight games are clear enough to prove their dominance at this ground. From their entire 22 home fixtures, they have won 14 and have lost only six. On the other hand, the visitors have lost 10 of their 22 matches on the road so far. Even though they remain unbeaten in head to head games at this ground, the hosts are in a whole another level right now. So I am backing the hosts to get all three points from this tie.
All five previous away games of the visitors produced a final score with over 2.5 goals. The home side is more than capable of scoring more than a goal as they have sown in the majority of their games. In fact, they are scoring at a rate of 1.59 goals in their home games. So we can expect a high scoring game this weekend, unlike their previous meetings.
