Fulham vs Aston Villa Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture will have important promotion implications as it features two of the top six in the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Fulham saw their five-game league winning run come to an end last time as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Bolton. The Cottagers took the lead through Matt Targett after just four minutes but they had to settle for a point in the end. Aston Villa won their sixth straight Championship game last time as they defeated local rivals Birmingham 2-0. Albert Adomah and Conor Hourihane got the goals that gives them local bragging rights for a while. The reverse fixture came towards the end of October at Villa Park and it ended in a 2-1 home victory. John Terry and Albert Adomah netted for the Midlands outfit while Stefan Johansen bagged for the London side.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given the form of both these sides it is difficult to find a winner here and the prices on offer look right here as they give Fulham an advantage for being at home but respect to the form shown by Aston Villa. Both teams have goal options but both sides are also defending well conceding just three each from their last six and this might be the clue. Under 2.5 goals is the outsider of two so have a little interest on that and NO in the both teams to score market while I could not put anyone off combining them in a double.

Fulham Preview

The Cottagers have taken 16 points from their last six league games and are unbeaten in their last nine. They are in fifth place some seven points behind their opponents in this match. At Craven Cottage, it is six straight victories in which they have scored 16 goals and conceded just two. No side has scored more home goals (12) than the London outfit in their last three in front of their own fans. Just two of their last six in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals and this has been games in which Fulham have scored three or more goals. Ryan Sessegnon has four in the last four though has blanked in the last two.

Fulham Team News

Sheyi Ojo (unknown) is a doubt.

Aston Villa Preview

It is now six straight league victories for Villa and just two defeats in their last 11. Their form combined with a few others around them slipping up has allowed them to climb into second place and an automatic promotion spot. Away from Villa Park, they have won three straight Championship matches and all by the same 1-0 scoreline. Only Wolves with ten conceded have a better road defence than the Midlands outfit. Aston Villa have conceded just three times in their last six in the league and nine times in their last 13. Albert Adomah has netted 12 league goals this season and has bagged two in the last two.

Aston Villa Team News

Chris Samba (hamstring) and Jordan Lyden (both ankle) are doubts while Jonathan Kodjia (also ankle) and Jed Steer (dislocated shoulder) are long-term absentees.
