Premier League Previews for Cardiff City v Fulham along with Prediction. Included in my preview is my pick, statistical analysis for each team, recent form, and betting odds.
These two teams will be battling for their Premier League survival with just one point separating them from one another. Fulham currently sit at the bottom of the EPL Table with 21 points while Cardiff are in 19th place with 22 points.
While a win for either team does not guarantee them safety, it could be massive in building some form as well as giving them a chance to move up the table. At this point, they are both having to rely on other teams’ results as much as their own.
In last weekend’s matches Cardiff played relatively well and nearly held on to an away draw at Spurs. Still, they continue to struggle with scoring goals with just three in their last six matches.
Fulham, meanwhile, continue to lead the league in goals allowed, with that tally moving up to a whopping 62 this season. In their last six Premier League matches they have allowed two or more goals five times.
My pick is for a Cardiff City win. I do think that Fulham’s defensive frailties are going to see them undone yet again. With that said, if they can continue to hold off Cardiff they could go on to get a result, even a win.
Fulham really struggle when they give up an early goal or go behind. Their heads seem to drop and they have a hard time getting back into the game.

Cardiff win: 2.25; Draw: 3.30; Fulham win: 3.30
Form: Cardiff (L, W, L, D, L, L) Fulham (L, L, D, L, D, L)
