Sheffield Wednesday vs Fulham
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 7 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Hillsborough Stadium (Sheffield).
The Owls have received a new energy out of nowhere and they will come into the clash with Fulham off the back of three straight wins in Championship. Not only had Jos Luhukay’s side grabbed three wins in a row, but they’ve done it in some style. Sheffield Wednesday have notched an impressive seven-goal tally in last two games against Preston North End and Sunderland.
The attacking duo Lucas Joao and Atdhe Nuhiu has been doing really well recently. Nuhiu has scored five goals in last three games, while his Portuguese companion has added one in each of last two outings. We’ll also mention that Fernando Forestieri has finally recovered from an injury. The Italian striker came on from the bench to score the late stoppage time goal against Preston North End at Deepdale. It was his first goal of the season n fourth appearances.
The red-hot Fulham will thus have to be super careful if they want to leave Hillsborough unharmed here. The Cottagers are flying his in this term of the Championship. They’ve won six and drawn one of last seven league ties and they sit comfortably at third position, still far away from the direct promotion, though. Aleksandar Mitrovic was once again on target on Tuesday evening when he doubles his team’s lead in a 2-0 victory over Leeds United at Craven Cottage.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Fulham: Prediction
Since the Owls have been thriving in the final third recently, we have to back goals at both ends as the main betting option here.
The value is huge in the 3.25 odds offered for Atdhe Nuhiu to find the back of the net for the hosts given he’s bagged five in last three games.
