Fulham vs Watford by Gaz12321

Fulham
VS
Watford
Two sides meet at Craven Cottage having experienced contrasting starts to their campaigns, the hosts started terribly taking 9 games to register their first victory, they also dispensed of Felix Megathe's services with Kit Symons coming in as caretaker manager and instantly transforming the club. Since their first victory of the season they have lost just 2 of their following 10 league games picking up 18 points to lift them away from the drop zone. Watford on the other hand started like an express train with 5 wins from their first 7 and despite all of their off field changes they looked like serious title contenders. However, since then their form has plummeted seeing them slip to just outside of the playoff places with just 3 wins from their next 12 league games, they are also on a 4 game losing streak at the moment.

 

One thing that stands out from the two sides recent results is the amount of goals, Fulham have hit 16 goals in their last 7 games, scoring in every game and conceded 12 times, keeping just 1 clean sheet. Watford have scored 8 in their last 7 failing to score in 2 of those games (however these were against 2 of the leagues form sides in Ipswich & Cardiff), and they've let in 10 without keeping a single clean sheet. These numbers not only show both sides attacking ability but also that both sides have defensive vulnerabilities, they also both like to get forward so it should be a very open game.

 

Fulham have 2 proven goal scorers up top in McCormack and Rodallega and will certainly be looking for the latter to continue his recent scoring streak having notched 5 goals in his last 6 league appearances. Watford have one of the most feared front lines in the Championship and are likely to go with 3 up front in Ighalo, Deeney and of course the lethal Matej Vydra. On paper this promises to be an exciting, open and end to end match, lets hope for plenty of goals.

 

My pick for this game is the Over 2.5 Goals & BTTS choice on Bet365 at odds of 1.90.
