Tactics

If Fulham continue their solid defensive performance, they should be able to stop a lot of chances as they develop for their opponents. Fulham should be able to pick up some extra possession as they have performed better than Birmingham in the air. Fulham should be able to continue their recent form, which has seen them give away very few chances in errors. Birmingham will need to be defensively alert, as Fulham are good at creating chances outside of the box. With such huge stars in the side, Fulham should be able to finish many chances if they can create them.

Birmingham Vs Fulham Prediction

Fulham are the better of the two teams, and will be looking to dominate the game. This should result in a win for Fulham. Birmingham will be looking to cause an upset for their opposition in front of a home crowd, but they have a mountain to climb to do so. A bet of £10 would return £50.92 for a home win, £43.08 for a draw, and £17.70 for an away win.

This is set to be an eventful match in which we are expecting Fulham to create many more chances than Birmingham. Birmingham will probably play defensively, looking for opportunities to counter attack. Regardless, Fulham will probably win by a margin of two or more goals. Our prediction for this match is: Birmingham 0-2 Fulham.
