Tip Fulham - West Brom
Prediction published on October 28, 2021 at 10:15 AM
Two sides eyeing automatic promotion from the Championship are set to face off this weekend; Fulham hosts West Bromwich Albion with both looking to secure a straight return to the topflight. One point separates the two sides – Fulham, second with 29 points and West Brom third on 28 points. The hosts are five points behind the league leaders Bournemouth and will be targeting a win here to be able to close up the gap. They go into this game on the better run, having won four of the last five matches, and after their most recent, 4-0 win over Nottingham they will be very confident. Fulham are the leading scorers in this league with 33 goals and in the last five games alone, they’ve scored 14. At home, they have three straight wins and have one loss only in seven league matches there this season. Aleksandar Mitrovic has been on top this season and he goes here as the lead scorer in the league with 15 goals. He has eight goals in the last five matches.
West Bromwich Albion haven’t had a stable run in their recent games, though they head into this one with three wins in their last five matches. They are coming from a 3-0 home win over Bristol City and in the last five matches they’ve won three and failed to score in just one. With nine goals scored in the last five matches, they will have the inferior feel against Fulham but in the same five matches, they’ve been better defensively, conceding three. West Brom have scored eight goals lesser than Fulham’s tally so far in the Championship. It is their away from that should worry them more though, as they head into this game having lost each of the last two, and that has been courtesy of conceding second half goals. The last time these two sides met was in the Premier League, and Fulham managed a win, with the other game ending in a draw.

Sticking with recent form and head to head numbers, go for a Fulham win here.
