Fulham vs Wolves
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 26 December 2018
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Craven Cottage (London).
Newly promoted sides Fulham and Wolves lock horns in the matchday 19 of the 2018/19 English Premier League.
A horrendous start to the season prompt the Cottagers to call changes at the management level. They roped in Claudio Ranieri, however his 6 matches in charge produced just 1 win.
The Cottagers played a goal-less draw at Newcastle on the weekend and remain at the foot of the table.
Ranieri’s men are currently on a 5 match winless streak and onus is high to bag a positive result this midweek.
Wolves on the other hand have been very impressive in the return back to English top flight. They are currently 10th in the standings at a 4 point gap with 6th placed Manchester United.
The Wanderers were beaten at home by Liverpool on the weekend, which ended a three match winning run.
Fulham vs Wolves Head-to-head
Fulham picked a 2-0 win at this stadium when these two teams met last season, which put an end to their 6 match winless streak against Wolves (1D, 5L).
Six of their last 8 h2h meetings saw over 2.5 goals.
Fulham vs Wolves Prediction
The Cottagers are still a side in doldrums while the Wolves come here in good spirits. Three wins and 2 draws from 8 away games is a formidable stats for a team that just got promoted and a brilliant h2h record at this stadium easily put Santo’s men as strong favorites to win here.
Yet, Claudio Ranieri’s men can be a threat going forward and therefore punters must expect some goals in this match. Furthermore, Fulham are the worst defensive side in the league, same applies for their home prowess as well. This automatically qualify this fixture to witness over 2.5 goals with both teams scoring.
