Fulham vs Bristol City Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 7th December 15.00pm

Scott Parker’s Fulham and Lee Johnson’s Bristol City lock horns in a mouth-watering EFL Championship fixture on Saturday afternoon. The Cottagers are a tough nut to crack at Craven Cottage, and the hosts head into this clash as the odds-on favourites with the bookies. However, the Robins have picked up a very respectable 16 points on the road this season. This promises to be a Championship cracker in the capital at the weekend.

Fulham News and Form – In-form Cottagers to claim a fifth straight win?

After an indifferent start to their season, Fulham are now making strides, winning each of their last four since losing 3-0 at home to Hull City over a month ago. The Cottagers have moved up to third, five points off the automatic spots.

Fulham picked up an impressive victory at Swansea City last time out. Aleksandar Mitrovic was on target twice in the narrow 2-1 win at the Liberty Stadium. The Serbia international has been on fire this season, scoring a staggering 15 Championship goals already, with seven of those coming in his last six league outings.

Fulham have been very strong on home turf so far, with just Preston North End picking up more home points. The Whites have won six, drawn two and lost two of ten, scoring 20 and conceding 11. The Cottagers will be going for a third straight Championship victory at Craven Cottage this Saturday.

  • The Robins have lost two of their last four on the road

 

Bristol City News and Form – Can the Robins cause an upset at the Cottage?

Lee Johnson’s Bristol City responded expertly well from their disappointing 4-1 loss to leaders West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns, as they thumped Huddersfield Town 5-2 at Ashton Gate last weekend. The Robins netted four in the first half in a rampant display against the Terriers.

Bristol City have been in patchy form lately, however, winning three, drawing three and losing one of their last seven. Away from Ashton Gate, Johnson’s boys have won only one of their previous six, though half of those have ended in draws.

Bristol City just missed out on the play-offs last season, so finishing in the top six of the Championship for the first time in over a decade will be the club’s main ambition this term. Can they take a huge step in the right direction by beating in-form Fulham at Craven Cottage this weekend?

Fulham vs Bristol City Predictions

Fulham win: Bristol City are more than capable of being in the mix for promotion this season. At this moment in time, the Robins are sitting pretty in fifth, three points behind Fulham.

The Cottagers are beginning to find their feet in the Championship, taking 12 points from their last four games. Parker’s side are purring, and I’m backing them to secure another comfortable home victory on Saturday. Check out the tempting price of 15/4 for the hosts to be win by two goals.

As I mentioned, Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic is on fire at the moment. Back the Serbian goal-machine to open the scoring on Saturday at 10/3.
