Fulham vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday early evening (17:30) live TV game should be a good one as it features the divisional form side at home to the league leaders. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Fulham stretched their unbeaten run to 11 league games as they drew 1-1 in midweek away to Bristol City. The Cottagers took the lead through Aleksandar Mitrovic before being pegged back and that was the end of the scoring in an entertaining contest. Wolves thought they were on course for a comfortable evening as they lead Norwich 2-0 after just 25 minutes through an own-goal and an Alfred N’Diaye effort. The Canaries bounced back though pulling one back two minutes later and then an injury-time equalizer to claim a point. The reverse fixture came early in November at Molineux in a game that the Black Country outfit won 2-0. Romain Saiss and Leo Bonatini netted the goals that stretched their unbeaten head-to-head record to nine games.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Given the recent form shown by Fulham and the fact they have won seven straight at home I think they look worth backing here. It is true Wolves are the best team in the division but they won just two of their last five on the road and they could be vulnerable. One feature of their game with Norwich at the weekend was how exposed Wanderers looked at set-pieces and although he has just one goal to his name this season Tim Ream could be worth a little interest. The United States man will have been encouraged by Christopher Zimmerman netting for the Canaries in midweek and looks worth a small interest on the first goalscorer market with each-way options.

Fulham Preview

The Cottagers are on a great run of form with no league defeat in their last 11 eight of which they have won. They are now into fifth and sit eight points behind Cardiff who are currently in the second automatic promotion spot. At Craven Cottage, it is seven straight victories with a total of 18 goals netted in these ties and just two conceded. Ryan Sessegnon has found the back of the net five times in his last four in front of his own fans. None of the last four Fulham league matches have gone over 2.5 goals but six of the seven prior to that had done. Around 63% of their Championship goals this season have come in the second-half 33% of which came in the final 15 minutes
