Swansea vs Fulham Prediction
Swansea dropped points for the second time in a row after Millwall upset the odds to edge past the hosts with a 1-0 scorecard. Steve Cooper’s men are yet to ensure consistency in their matchups in the second division and have tasted success just twice in their last five.
It is also worth mentioning that the Swans are faring poorly on home soil at the moment. The home side have just one win to boast of from their last six games here, and have amassed no more than four points from a possible eighteen.
On the other hand, Fulham have been placing nothing but their best foot forward in their last two fixtures. Their most recent matchup at home saw them pull off a 2-1 win over QPR, while on the road they took down Birmingham with a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
Furthermore, the visitors have also been resilient in their trips on the road. The away side have admitted defeat just twice in their outings this season and are unbeaten in their last two on the trot as well.
Hence although h2h statistics at this venue suggest a slight upper hand for the hosts, the positive form that Fulham are on at the moment gives the visitors the edge this week.
Nevertheless, taking into account that the guests have been forced to share the spoils in half of their last six outings, a double chance would have to be the safest punt in this one.
Additionally, eleven of the seventeen goals that Swansea have conceded so far have come from their clashes at home. Nevertheless, the hosts have managed to breach this foe in three of their last four h2h meetings here.
Given that Fulham also have just two clean sheets from their previous eight outings, expect both teams to contribute to the scorecards come Friday.
