Watford vs Fulham
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 2nd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road (Watford).
The battle to become the ‘Best of the Rest’ is at its most intense stages. Best of the rest, in the sense, the best team in the league after the traditional top-six sides of course. Watford is locked in with the likes of Wolves, Leicester, Everton, etc. And the exciting thing is – the five squads in contention for the distinction are separated by just two points.
With Wolves and Everton having games against United and Arsenal respectively, it’s a chance for the hosts to surge ahead, considering they are taking on the relegation-threatened Fulham. By a distance, they have been the weakest defensive unit in the Premier League, and remain the only team to lose the last five league games in a row.

- The last Fulham won at this venue was back in 2001.
Watford vs Fulham Prediction
Fulham lost their last eight games in a row, and 12 of the last 13. On the road, they are winless in their last 14 attempts and lost 13 of them as well. They also remained winless in 18 of their last 19 road trips. In the last 12 months, Fulham has recorded away wins strictly, in either friendly or against lower division teams.
On the other hand, Watford won their last three home ties in succession and is unbeaten in their last five. They are also unbeaten against Fulham since 2005 and unbeaten at home against this team since 2001.
With them likely going after the seventh spot in the league table, this match will be exploited to its fullest by the hosts.
And with Fulham already conceding a whopping 72 goals in the league (no other team has yet conceded 60), expect the hosts to win comfortably, and to score at least two. This season, Watford has performed well against teams from the lower tier.
