Championship Betting Tips: Fulham v Cardiff

Friday night’s potential play-off dress rehearsal sees fourth-place Fulham host sixth-place Cardiff.

The big news for the hosts is that Aleksandar Mitrovic, the league’s joint-top scorer with 23 goals, is back available, after serving a three-match suspension. 

 

There’s a strange quirk whereby he’s evidently a key player for the Cottagers, scoring 41% of their total Championship goals (no player has a higher proportion of their team’s goals) but they won all three of the games he sat out, while they lost the last two he started as he drew blanks against Brentford (1-0) and Leeds (3-0).

 

Those three wins mean that Fulham can still harbour some faint hopes of catching Leeds and West Brom in the automatic promotion positions but they must keep that run going here. They’ve kept a clean sheet in each of their last two wins, both 1-0 - to win and keep another clean sheet here is 11/5, to win 1-0 again is 6/1.

 

Cardiff, meanwhile, are looking to bounce back from a demoralising 3-2 defeat to Blackburn in midweek, decided by a sensational long-range lob from Rovers forward Adam Armstrong. It was  a missed opportunity to consolidate their place in the play-offs with a six-point lead over seventh, but they’ve otherwise been in good form with four wins and a draw from their five prior outings. 

 

We recommend backing Fulham to win here. They put in a good performance on Tuesday and come into this meeting on the back of three straight wins, while Cardiff’s 3-2 defeat to Blackburn exposed some defensive deficiencies.

    Fulham 2-0 Cardiff City - Match Report

    Aleksandar Mitrovic scores on return as Fulham beat Cardiff to seal top-six spot

    Aleksandar Mitrovic’s penalty cemented Fulham’s Championship play-off place in a 2-0 win over promotion rivals Cardiff City.

    Serbia hitman Mitrovic marked his return from a three-match ban with a bullet spot-kick at Craven Cottage as Fulham sealed a fourth straight league win.

    Josh Onomah later fired his third goal of the season to rubber-stamp a crucial victory for Scott Parker’s men.

    The Whites leapfrogged Brentford into third place, temporarily at least, with the Bees travelling Derby on Saturday.

    Fulham’s latest win will keep the pressure on the league’s top two Leeds and West Brom, but boss Parker will surely be delighted to have secured a play-off place.

    Mitrovic edged back to the top of the league’s scoring charts with his 24th goal of the campaign, inching ahead of Brentford’s Ollie Watkins again.

    The 25-year-old had played the villain with his retrospective ban for an ugly elbow on Ben White in Fulham’s 3-0 defeat at Leeds on June 27.

    Fulham pulled off wins over QPR, Birmingham and Nottingham Forest in his absence, however – all without a recognised striker.

    And while Parker’s men still struggled for fluency, both the result and Mitrovic’s goal will have Fulham buoyed up for a strong finish to the campaign.

    Cardiff missed the chance to open up a four-point gap on seventh-placed Swansea, with their bitter rivals taking on Leeds on Sunday.

    The visitors were left to rue Joe Ralls failing with two first-half chances, with Neil Harris’ side unable to threaten after the break.

    Fulham’s first genuine chance proved to be Mitrovic’s penalty. Dion Sanderson tangled with Mitrovic in the area though, and the resulting spot-kick changed the entire game’s complexion.

    Mitrovic hauled himself off the turf, approaching the ball casually before lashing home with some ferocity.

    The lead flattered a Fulham side who had rode their luck on several occasions prior the the spot-kick.

    Harry Arter’s errant pass had gifted Nathaniel Mendez-Laing a run on goal, but the Bluebirds forward drilled straight at Marek Rodak.

    Tim Ream had to endure several bouts of uncomfortable Cardiff pressing, and even had to play out for a corner from midway inside his own half.

    Fulham’s galvanised Cardiff again, and Anthony Knockaert received a fully deserved yellow card for taking out the breaking Mendez-Laing.

    Ralls then hit the bar with an angled half-volley, hooking high over the ball with fine technique.

    The Cardiff midfielder immediately traded misfortune for a miscue however, in heading over the bar under zero pressure.

    Fulham dominated the second-half as Cardiff faded, unable to force any genuine threat.

    The hosts were left furious not to earn a second penalty, when a Joe Bryan cross appeared to strike Curtis Nelson’s arm – with Mitrovic then claiming he was fouled by Will Vaulks in the ensuing melee.

    The Whites did quickly double their lead however, as Onomah traded passes with Stefan Johansen before drilling into the bottom corner.
