Fulham chases European spot

Fulham chases European spot

Fulham continues their chase for a spot in the European stage when they go against Wolverhampton Wanderers. These two teams are coming from a different result last weekend, but were on the opposite side of a 1-0 score. While Fulham gained a victory against Brighton & Hove Albion, it is the opposite for the Wolves. They suffered a 1-0 defeat against Bournemouth, which made them eager to bounce back in this match. Their meeting will be on February 25, 2023, at 4:00 AM (GMT+8), with Fulham welcoming the Wolves.

Across all competitions, these two teams only met for 95 times, even if their first meeting is dating back to 1907. From their 95 previous meetings, it as the visitors who has an upper hand, winning 45 matches. The hosts on the other hand has 26 wins, while the other 24 meetings all ended in draw. Looking at their recent results, it seems like these two teams are actually in a good momentum. While the hosts are unbeaten in their last five games across all competitions, the visitors are undefeated against their opponent in 14 of their last1 5 meetings.

Looking at Fulham’s recent performances, it seems like they have improved, especially their form. In fact, they are currently in a three-game unbeaten run, where they were able to record two wins. On their last match, they were able to edge out Brighton & Hove, in a score of 1-0. It was a close match, not until Manor Solomon was able to score a goal late. With this win, they were able to leapfrog Brighton, and secure the sixth spot in the league table. They are currently with 38 points, and are three points above the seventh placers. As they meet a struggling squad, they remain hopeful to have a solid game. A win could help them increase their chances of entering the European stage.

Aleksander Mitrovic, who did not took part on their last match, is still a doubt in this game, as he continues to battle with a hamstring injury. Moreover, Neeskens Kebano, and Tom Cairney are both out in this game, considering their injuries.

The Wolves are also in a winning run, but their 1-0 loss against Bournemouth put an end to their good momentum. This loss is already their second defeat in their four league games, but they are still lucky to remain at the 15th spot. The Wolves are with 23 points, but a win in this match could help them improve their standing. They are now with 23 points, but an additional three points could bring them to the 11th or 12th. It is a must-win game for them, as they are just two points ahead from the 17th spot, and three points ahead below the relegation table. They have the worst attacking record in the league, an area they badly need to improve. In fact, they only have 17 goals from their 23 games, so they need to address this problem.

Mario Lemina comes back from a one-game ban, so expect him to go against his former squad. However, they will still miss the services of Sasa Kalajdzic, Hwang Hee-chan, Boubacar Traore, and Chiquinho.

Prediction:

Fulham (0.5)
Odds: -0.97
