Derby vs Fulham Betting Tips
Derby County are in the middle of the Championship table, but their ambitions are much, much higher. They wish to qualify for the play-offs. Preston North End is in the 6th place with 53 points, which is 9 points more than Derby. What this means is that there’s still plenty of time for Derby to improve their position. Of course, in order for that to happen, they need to win points.
That’s something that’s not going to be easy, at least not this Friday because Fulham are coming to town. The Cottagers are in 3rd place with 56 points, three fewer than Leeds who are in 2nd place, which is one of two positions that lead to the Premier League straight away.
The trouble with Fulham is that they aren’t in great form in the last couple of weeks. The good news for them is that the same case is with Derby. Both teams have won 1 point each in the previous two rounds of the Championship.
Both teams have really tough squads, with some really good players. Fulham have a slight advantage in this department. But, there’s one big advantage of Derby – they’re playing in front of their crowd. This team is the second-best home side in the league, with 9 wins, 6 draws, and 2 defeats.
Fulham are also great when it comes to playing at home; their away performances haven’t been that impressive. And the last time they played against Derby at Pride Park, they lost 1:0. Still, in their previous two meetings with Derby, they were victorious.
All this suggests that we’re going to see an entertaining duel on Friday evening. But, which team is going to be the happier side once the ref blows the final whistle? Probably neither because this game looks destined to finish in a draw.
