Fulham vs Sunderland: Preview and Predictions

Fulham vs Sunderland
England – Championship
Date: Friday, 27th April 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).

Fulham must win against the rock bottom side Sunderland on Friday to stay in the automatic promotion race after handed a boost from Cardiff’s loss to Derby on Tuesday.

The Cottagers are third on the log, 1 point behind second placed Cardiff. So, the remaining two games they have are virtual finals.

Fulham will finish their regular season away at Birmingham on 6th May. While, Cardiff go away to Hull City on Saturday before hosting Reading on the final league game.

Sunderland are relegated to the League 1, just 12 months from falling from the English Premier League. The team sitting at rock bottom managed only 6 wins from their 44 league matches this season. But the 34 picked by them is the highest by a team finishing last in the table since 2012/13 season.

Fulham vs Sunderland: Head-to-head

Sunderland won 1-0 when they played Fulham at the Stadium of Light earlier this season.

The win put the Black Cats on a 4 match unbeaten run in their h2h meetings with 3 wins and 1 draw.

Not only that, the relegated Sunderland picked wins in their last three visits to the Craven Cottage, all by comfortable margins. Fulham had lost only 1 of their last 8 h2h home fixtures prior to that.

Their last four h2h meetings at the Cottage saw both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals.

Fulham vs Sunderland: Predictions

Slavisa Jokanovic last tasted a league defeat back in December 2017. And the team that handed them the fate is none other than Sunderland.

But the teams have moved into different directions since then and Fulham went on a 22 match unbeaten streak with a win ratio of 86%. Meantime, there is nothing positive to fill in Sunderland’s column.

Thus, Fulham to win is a banker here, but unfortunately, the bookies priced it at as low as 1.20 odd. No issues here though since the AH -1.5 and HT/FT for home team are as good as a banker.

The reason is pretty clear since Fulham are the second highest scoring team in the league with 76 goals while the Black Cats are the worst defense with 79 conceded up to this point. So, a home win with 2 or more goal margin is very much on the cards
