Fulham vs Brentford Betting Tip and Prediction. In the 40th round in Championship, in London derby, Fulham host Brentford at Craven Cottage.
There are only few rounds left until the end of the season and both teams need points – Fulham is near the relegation zone, while Brentford still hope that they can secure the place in play-off and try to promote in Premier league.
After four rounds without win, Fulham have finally took very important three points in the previous round when they beat Huddersfield away 0-2. They have eight points more than the first team in the relegation zone and they want to secure their place in Championship next season as soon as possible.
Richards (10/0 m), Lasse Christensen (25/5 m) and Jesse Joronen (0/0 g) are all injured, while Shaun Hutchinson (23/2 d) and Kostas Stafylidis (37/0 d) are both out due to suspension. Good news for home side is that Scott Parker (34/3 m) and their top scorer Ross McCormack (37/10 f) are both back to squad after they missed the last game.
Brentford stand at the 7th position and they have only one point less than the first team in play-off. By the way, this season in Championship is more than interesting because the difference between 1-7 position is only six points.
Scott Hogan (1/0 f), while loaned Liam Moore (3/0 d) back to Leicester City.
Both teams have very shaky defences. Fulham have the second worst defence in Championship – They conceded 68 goals this season (only Blackpool conceded more goals). On the other side, Brentford conceded 52 goals – they conceded at least one goal on each of they last 10 matches.
The visitors are better side and they are favorite to win this one, but I expect very open match between Fulham vs Brentford and at least three goals.
