Luton vs Fulham Prediction
Luton were on the road the last match-day, and had valiantly fought against Swansea. Still, the guests fired in the lone goal of the game and the winner in the 82nd minute, to take home the three points.
Meanwhile, Fulham registered a confidence-boosting win the prior game week, over arguably the best team in the competition at the moment, Leeds. The match had ended 2-1 in favor of the hosts, Fulham.
This Thursday, consider the fact that Luton used to ply their trade in the League One the last season, while Fulham were locking horns with some of the best teams in the world, in arguably the best league competition in Europe.
This level of exposure, and experience in dealing with tough squads will surely have added to the skillset of Fulham.
On top of that, they are hell-bent on making a return to the top flight, and they have so far showed justice to this objective. As of now, the team are placed fourth in the table, and are firmly in control of one of the playoff spots.
On the other hand, Luton were dealing with teams in the third flight of English Football the last season, and at present, they are trying their best to avoid the relegation zone in the Championship.
Furthermore, it deserves special mention that Luton have conceded the most number of goals in the whole competition, and that they have lost the most number of games in the league as well.
In addition, Luton lost nine of their previous eleven overall match-ups, and conceded twice or more in eight of their last eleven.
On the other hand, Fulham won six of their preceding nine overall games, and were unbeaten in 13 of their former 18 match-ups. They were also invincible in seven of their last ten matches on the road.
Going on, Fulham have been unbeaten against this opponent in the past 20 years, and hold a 100% winning record since 1999, disregarding a sole draw in the FA Cup back in 1999.
Most importantly, at this venue, in the last two decades, Fulham have won every single h2h encounter, and have scored three or more goals. Impressively, Luton have not managed to score a single goal in return.
Considering all these observations together, rightfully expect Fulham to record a convincing win this Thursday at the Kenilworth Road. Also, expect them to get on top of things right away, as they are eager to make the most of this game against a minnow.
