Betting Tips And Predictions Analyzed Huddersfield Town vs FC Fulham
The bookmakers cheat the host from Huddersfield Town the role of favorites. However, this does not speak for the terriers, but rather for the blatant weakness of the opponent: In the betting market, the FC Fulham is so weak estimated that even the bottom of the table commits the direct duel in favored position.
But is it really Huddersfield that will win on Monday night? At first glance, little speaks for this assumption. After ten matchdays, the team is still waiting for the first win of the season, with just four goals scored it represents the weakest offensive in the league. Fulham, on the other hand, has already won one and scored almost three times as many goals (11).
And what about the home advantage? Looking only at the numbers, this aspect also seems to speak first for the guests. After all, Huddersfield is still without a win and even without a goal after four competitive matches in front of a home crowd. But here it is important to note the opponents: With Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool, the Terriers had three absolute top opponents in front of the chest against which anything but a defeat would have been most surprising. In the only home game against an opponent, against Cardiff two months ago, the team was honorable (0-0) and should have actually won. Against Fulham, the team will make up for this failure.
The last three results: 0: 3 vs. Watford 0: 1 vs. 0. Liverpool, 1: 1 vs. Burnley
Describing the current situation in Huddersfield as precarious seems almost understated. In the past season, the Terriers had celebrated another outstanding first round had wrestled in places for the international places, now the team occupies the last place in the table and is still waiting after ten match days for the first victory. The defeat account, however, is already filled with seven bankruptcies.
Unless Huddersfield wants to bury its hopes for relegation at the half-way point, the team will have to find urgent solutions to the footballing problems – and the team laments a number of them.
Probably the biggest drawback is currently the offensive. With a meager four hits, the Terriers make by far the most innocuous attack in the league, which is not only due to lack of opportunity utilization, but primarily on Huddersfields inability to develop even Torgefahr.
The defensive turn, in the past season still the main reason for the league, is little cause for concern. Huddersfield have already conceded 21 goals, a value only surpassed by Fulham and Cardiff relegation fighters.
Another pillar that Terriers had successfully made last year does not crumble: its performance in front of a home backdrop. However, this season the team is disappointed. The headlines: not a single goal scored, a weak defensive (14 goals conceded), barely presentable playful approaches and lack of cleverness.
All in all, in Huddersfield you can adjust to a season in which your own existence will be constant. And in the sense of success at best against direct relegation competitors seem conceivable. Accordingly important is the match against Fulham next weekend.
Possible lineup Huddersfield Town
Huddersfield coach Wagner can not be satisfied with the recent performances, but he does not have the opportunity to shoot big. Thus, the majority of Watford starter also against Fulham from the beginning to be on the lawn.
Lössl – Durm, M. Jörgensen, Schindler, Leo – Mbenza, Billing, Hogg, Mooy – Pritchard, Mounié
The last three results: 0: 2 vs. Manchester City, 0: 3 Vs. AFC Bournemouth, 2: 4 Vs. Cardiff City
To be a fan of FC Fulham means that these days, you have to get infected. Five defeats at a time had to swallow fans of Cottagers last, a worse than the other.
The negative run started against Everton 6 weeks ago. In the duel with the Toffees Fulham was defeated in all matters, in the end they lost deservedly with 0: 3. It got even worse in the following week, when the team against the Arsenal 1: 5 came under the wheels.
Afterwards, Cardiff was a tough opponent, but even the offensively limited Welsh had no problem taking apart Fulham’s weak defense: the game ended 2: 4.
At the latest after that bankruptcy against the relegation competitors was clear: Fulham is in crisis and above all has a defensive problem. This weakness has not been resolved so far – on the contrary: against Bournemouth and Manchester City, the team caught another five goals.
The bottom line is Fulham, with now 28 goals against the clear worst defense of the league and is in danger of losing contact with the non-descendent region. They are still in good form with five points, but the team owes this victory above all to their only win so far this season against Burnley – which is now over two months ago.
Possible line-up FC Fulham
Cottagers coach Jokanovic had the duel with ManCity during the week in full occupy. That could take revenge: there are hardly any rotation options, so he will have to muster an elf who can not be fully rested.
Sergio Rico – Fosu-Mensah, Odoi, Ream, R. Sessegnon – Anguissa, Seri – Vietto, Cairney, Schürrle – Mitrovic
