Our Prediction:

Fulham will win

Fulham – West Brom Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 07:30

Fulham aim to recover from an early exit in the English League Cup and the capital club will be looking to put an end to their three-game winless run in the English second tier when they face the Baggies in London on Saturday afternoon. All eyes will be on Craven Cottage when Fulham and WBA face each other on day 7 of the new Championship campaign.

The last match was played on 22-02-2014 and ended with the score: West Bromwich Albion (11) Fulham. In this match the home factor may be decisive, since Fulham has considerable differences in its results at home and as a visitor. Fulham and West Bromwich Albion measure strength at Craven Cottage, in a match for the 7th round of the Championship. There is no record of direct confrontations between these two teams in the last 3 years.

In general, the Englishman Charlie Austin is the most offensive reference of the visiting club and its main feature is the completion. Absent from this game will be Townsend, Gibbs and Hegazy, all injured. In this match, coach Slaven Bilic must act with a cautious strategy, as he plays away from home. Phillips and Diangana are usually the men who act on the wings. The West Bromwich comes to this motivated game, after a 3-2 victory with Blackburn, continuing without losing in this second English division: the goals were scored by Livermore, Phillips and Diangana.

West Brom

The London outfit are sixth with ten points but the expected goals data feels they should be as high as third and they have the second easiest next set of six fixtures according to expected finishing position data. Fulham saw their winless league run stretched to two and three in all competitions following a 1-1 draw at Cardiff last time out.

Scott Parker is looking to build a progressive, passing and possession-based approach in the Championship this season. They average the most possession (63.8%) and pass accuracy (87.2%). They're a very patient team, though, and often keep the ball without necessarily doing a great deal with it - Tim Ream and Alfie Mawson average the most passes per game in the division, often between one another at the back.

They will be hoping to up their game at home, but can they bounce back from defeat to Nottingham Forest? They came down to the Championship talked up as a top-two contender, but recent results have cast a little bit of doubt over Scott Parkers men. Fulham have found things slightly tougher of late, failing to win any of their last three matches.

Fulham vs West Bromwich PREDICTION & BETTING TIPS - 14/09/2019

WBA proved their worth in a 3-2 win over Blackburn Rovers, but seeing that Fulham are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw. The Baggies, on the other hand, are determined to return to the Premier League and their recent performances are definitely giving fans a reason for optimism. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Aleksandar Mitrovic, who scored for Serbia in a 4-2 loss to Portugal and the opposition defenders should have him at bay.

This is a stronger team with the support of his fans, since in the last 30 matches he has recorded 2 wins, 2 draws and 11 losses as a visitor, with 10 goals scored and 27 suffered; against 6 wins and 9 losses in his stadium, with 19 goals scored and 23 suffered. His attack has scored regularly, as he scored goals in 5 of the last 6 games for this competition. After 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, the home team is currently in 6th position, with 10 points won. In their last game, they tied with Cardiff City out by (11), after in the previous match they lost by (12) at home, in a match against Nottingham Forest. In his last 10 home games Fulham records 5 wins and 5 losses.

In the penultimate game, he tied out against Derby County by (11). In the last game, he won at home against Blackburn Rovers by (3-2). In the last 10 games played as a visitor for all competitions, West Bromwich Albion won 3, drew 3 and lost 4. The visiting team is currently in the 4th position, with 12 points won, after 3 wins and 3 draws. This is a team that presents similar results at home and abroad, so it is not usually affected by the home factor, since in the last 30 matches it records 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses as a visitor; against 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses in his stadium. The team has not been very strong defensively, since it has always suffered goals in the last 6 games, but its attack has scored regularly, as he always scored at least one goal in the last 6 games for this competition.

The Baggies, on the other hand, are determined to return to the Premier League and their recent performances are definitely giving fans a reason for optimism. WBA proved their worth in a 3-2 win over Blackburn Rovers, but seeing that Fulham are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Aleksandar Mitrovic, who scored for Serbia in a 4-2 loss to Portugal and the opposition defenders should have him at bay.

Goal Margins

This, along with their patient passing approach, suggests efficiency and being clinical when they do get chances, while Aleksandar Mitrovic - who scored 12 in his last half-season in the second tier - is as proven as they come at this level. The Serbian striker has scored five goals in six games already, the joint top scorer in the division, and added three in two games for Serbia over the international break to make it seven consecutive games with a goal for club and country. While Fulham don't actually register in the top five teams in terms of shots per game, they're level with Leeds as the team that register the most shots on target (5.2 per game).

Recent weeks have seen both of these two struggle with defensive issues. The Baggies have seen 100% of their matches this season finish with both teams scoring. That run has seen them draw 1-1 on three occasions in six league games, which were backing them to repeat here. These two drew 1-1 home and away the last time they shared a division, so were backing the same again as our correct score pick.

It has to be noted that he suffered a serious injury in August 2012. Cairney has 2 caps for Scotland U-21 and he made 6 appearances for Scotland U-21 team. The injury forced him to be out of contention for over three months. Tom Cairneys father is Scottish and, as a result, the Fulham footballer decided to represent Scotland on the international stage.
