Leeds United vs Fulham
2017/18 EFL Championship
Date: Tuesday, 15th August 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Elland Road.
Two top half teams from the last term of Championship are set to take on each other in the Matchday No 3 of the new campaign this Tuesday at Elland Road.
Fulham, who featured the playoffs back in May, are yet to claim their first win of the season, but getting the full fray from Elland Road will be one challenging task for the visitors.
The Peacocks got off to a positive start with a 2-3 win over the league’s newcomers Bolton Wanderers at Macron Stadium, but they failed to back up the fine attacking display at the weekend when they only drew 0-0 with Preston North End on the home patch.
The team’s top scorer from the last season, Chris Wood, has found the back of the net in the starting fixture against the Trotters, and if there is anyone to represent a threat to Fulham’s goal on Tuesday, it’s the New Zealand’s forward. You can get Kiwi to score anytime at the odds of 10/11.
Slavisa Jokanovic failed to make it to the elite class as Reading stopped Fulham in the semifinal of the playoffs last year.
The Lilywhites travelled to Madejski to play Reading in the second round just this weekend as the clash saw the sides sharing the spoils in a 1-1 draw.
The meeting with Leeds United will thus mark the third consecutive tough fixture for Fulham who have previously played another 1-1 draw with Norwich City in the season opener at Craven Cottage.

Leeds United vs Fulham: Prediction
It is not hard to conclude that 1-1 scoreline is indeed the most likeable of the outcomes in this Tuesday’s clash given that both of the previous two games Fulham played in the new season saw just this score.
