Fulham vs Cardiff Prediction & Betting tips
Fulham on course for Wembley! With the away win at Cardiff City, the Cottagers set the course for entering the playoff final. On Thursday evening, coach Scott Parker’s protégés only have to rock the 2-0 from the first leg over time. Only the boldest optimists expect Cardiff City to progress.
The cottagers are therefore already with one leg in the final of the promotion playoffs. Fulham FC have been unbeaten in their last eight competitive matches and are therefore bursting with confidence ahead of the semi-final second leg. There were also three home wins at Craven Cottage in a row, including the second half match against Cardiff (2-0).
It is quite possible that the match between Fulham vs. Cardiff pays a forecast on the home side.
Fulham have had some setbacks this season but may still face a conciliatory end to the season as the Premier League is increasingly in sight
In the current form of the cottagers, at least the final should be booked easily. In the last eight games Fulham has been unbeaten and has recently taken three home wins. With a home record of 15-2-6, Fulham was the third strongest home team in the championship.
Aleksandar Mitrovic undoubtedly played a major role in the Cottagers’ success this season. The Serbian goal keeper from Fulham scored 26 goals this season, making him the top scorer in the championship. In the playoff first leg Mitrovic was spared due to an injury. However, its use on Thursday evening should not be endangered.
In any case, Fulham coach Parker can largely draw on the full. At the playoff second leg, the 39-year-old Cottagers’ trainer will probably only have to do without central defender Kongolo.
The Bluebirds from Cardiff face a very difficult task in the second leg of the playoff. After the home game was unfortunately lost 0-2, the blue-whites need an away coup for the third strongest home team of the championship.
In the semi-final first leg of the promotion playoffs, Neil Harris’ team did not do well. Fulham FC was the game-determining team for long stretches. In particular, the Bluebirds offensive was hardly in action. Cardiff City fired just one shot at Fulham’s goal throughout the second half.
As the Welshman’s away record shows, a surprise on Thursday evening is not really to be expected. Abroad there was a manageable record of 8-7-8. If this negative trend continues in the semi-final second leg of the promotion playoffs, the Bluebirds need three or four goals to enter the playoff final.
On Thursday evening, Cardiff coach Neil Harris can build on the entire squad. Compared to the starting eleven from the semi-final first leg, no major changes in the starting eleven are expected.
