Manchester City vs Fulham Prediction & Betting tips
In the fifth round of the Premier League, we witness a mixed-ball duel. Manchester reigning champion meets Fulham at Etihad Stadium. The team from London is one of three champions in the championship. So two teams meet, which are not on an equal footing. This is also reflected in the market values of the two teams: The estimated market value of the team from Manchester is about four times higher (1.06 billion euros) than that of Fulham (242.5 million euros). Will this difference also show up on the pitch? It can be expected – after all, the team from Manchester have only given in the current season two points. Fulham earned only four points. In the duel between Manchester City and Fulham we have selected a tip on the home team. Since the betting odds for such bets are in a very low range, we make it difficult to tip ours with a handicap!
The team of Pep Guardiola started the season successfully. The first four games resulted in three wins and one draw. On Matchday 1, they defeated Arsenal 2-0 away. This was followed by a 6-1 victory over Huddersfield and a disappointing 1-1 draw against promoted Wolverhampton. On the fourth matchday, the Citizens won 2-1 against Newcastle. It is striking that Manchester City played only once to zero. But they have so far scored the most goals throughout the league. These results are currently enough for fourth place in the table, as in the Premier League three teams are still without a loss point. Liverpool FC, Chelsea FC and Watford FC have all four wins from four games!
Responsible for the many goals at Manchester City are Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling. The two were already in the past season, the life insurance of Citizens. Sergio Agüero is Manchester City’s top scorer with three goals and one assist. Sterling scored two goals in three games. The best original donor is the recovering Benjamin Mendy with already four assists. He is becoming an important part of this team.
At home, City is a power. In the last five Premier League home games they fought 13 out of a possible 15 points. The only point loss they suffered against Huddersfield on May 6, 2018. The goal difference in the mentioned home games is 16: 3! Due to the strength of the home team we recommend a hint on the home team in the duel between Manchester City and Fulham FC, whereby potential bets should be played with a handicap. Because the odds of a victory of the Guardiola team are very low due to the above facts. For most providers, they are in the 1.10er range.
Fulham’s start to the season was appealing but not intoxicating. Although the Cottagers went into the season as promoted, the expectations of the team are still high. The reason for this is the transfers made over the summer. Overall, the team from the south of London spent 109 million euros for new players. Among them are sounding names such as Seri, who came from Nice, or André Schürrle, who was weggelotst of Dortmund. The home defeat at home in Craven Cottage was therefore a quiet disappointment. This was followed by another defeat – away at Wembley resulted in a 1: 3 against the Spurs. The only victory they celebrated so far on the third matchday. The Cottagers beat Burnley 4-2 in a blistering game – 3: 2 at halftime, scoring three goals within five minutes. On the final day they won a point in Brighton. Fulham is currently in 13th place in the table with four points.
With Alexander Mitrovic is currently the most successful scorer of the Premier League in the ranks of the South Londoners. He has already met four times. Luciano Vietto gave two assists, making him the most creative player at Fulham. The betting odds for a win of Fulham are very high at over 20.00! Betting on a surprise, therefore, seems lucrative, but at the same time extremely risky – due to the outward weakness of the cottagers. The last five competitive away games resulted in only one victory. They scored against Millwall in last year’s Championship. Since then, there have been three defeats and a draw. The draw brought Fulham to Brighton on matchday one. A tip for a victory of the Cottagers is therefore not recommended.
