Fulham vs Bristol City by Shibby
Championship action today for me, I think there is a lot of value in some of the games scheduled for today so I'll post my few on here. The first one is this game, Fulham vs Bristol City. The game will be played at Craven Cottage and will kick off at 15:00 UK time.
The two teams actually played the exact same fixture just 3 days ago in the cup! The game ended 2-1 in favour of the visitors, Bristol City. The hosts have started their season quite well and currently find themselves in 9th in the table. This position was based on their early games as their form recently in league and cup has seen Fulham lose 2 and draw 3, so basically win-less in their last 5 fixtures. This will have knocked confidence I'm sure, however, they do have goals in their team, they also often concede goals.
I think the cup game earlier this week wouldn't have given too much away to either side, I expect this to be an open game as they often are with teams like these two. Fulham will know that a win would be huge for them and could potentially see them sneak up to 3rd (depending on other results this weekend).
The visitors are also a very open side and last season and this season their fans have often seen goals at either end! They seem to be one of them teams who will always try and outscore their opponents even if that means conceding 2 or 3!
Bristol like Fulham could shoot up the table with a win today, they currently lie in 12th place in the league, just 2 points behind Fulham, so a win here could see them overtake the London side. Bristol City's last 6 games has seen BTTS in all 6 (league and cup). This gives an idea as to what I mentioned earlier about goals being seen in both ends.
Bristol head into the game with the mental advantage of beating Fulham in the same stadium just days ago. This will give their whole squad the confidence they can go on and secure a huge 3 points. Bristol City's last 2 away league games has seen them 4 goals, and concede 5!
I expect their to be goals flying in again today, therefore, I'll be backing BTTS @ a cool price of 1.74 with Unibet. Good luck all.
