Competition: Premier League
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport
In a battle between two Premier League returners on Friday night, Fulham will welcome Leeds to an empty Craven Cottage when this weekend’s fixtures open up.
Starting with the hosts, after getting hit with what eventually turned into a 3-0 defeat against runaway leaders Manchester City, Fulham failed to build off of that stunning victory at Anfield. Gaining plenty of plaudits over the past couple of months, Head Coach Scott Parker is now desperate for his side to start picking up some points. Opening this weekend’s fixtures sat three points adrift of a struggling Newcastle and finding a route out of the drop zone, The Whites also need to find a more clinical edge in the final third. Aside from that shock 1-0 win against the defending champions earlier in the month, that is the only goal that Fulham have scored in almost 400 minutes of action. It should also be highlighted that the West London outfit have remarkably bagged just a single strike on home soil since January 20th.
As for the visitors, while Leeds might have managed to pick up a point against Champions League outfit Chelsea last weekend, Marcelo Bielsa’s men do find themselves in the midst of a sluggish patch. Still trying to find a route into the top-half of the table and all but securing another Premier League campaign, the former Napoli boss has seen his squad win just one of their last six top-flight matchups. Along with losing each of their last three contests away from Elland Road, Leeds are also dealing with their own toothless displays in the final third. With leading marksman Patrick Bamford limping off against Chelsea last week, Friday’s guests have failed to find the net in each of their last three fixtures on the spin and they have also drawn a blank in four of their last five.
Bet: Under 2.5 goals at Fulham vs Leeds 1/1 for Friday’s Premier League matchup @ 888sport
