Fulham vs Leeds United betting tips: Preview, predictions & odds

Fulham can see daylight at the bottom-end of the table for the first time this season as they sit just two points off the chance to climb out of the bottom three in their hopes of avoiding relegation. A chance to continue their better overall run of form before hitting a difficult period to close out the season comes by way of a date with Leeds United in the English capital against a side that has forgotten how to find the back of the net in recent weeks.

Fulham have a real shot at climbing out of the bottom three against a Leeds United side that has just one win in their last six and continuously is misfiring in the final third of late. With Newcastle just two points ahead of the Cottagers and winless in their last five in the Premier League, Fulham’s defensive solidarity could springboard them to a three-point haul.

It is a bit of a gamble considering at any moment Leeds can snap out of it and hit someone for three goals if they are finally on it again, but Marcelo Bielsa’s outfit has struggled each time they have traveled to the English capital this season. Considering how good of a defensive unit Fulham is this season despite where they sit at in the table and the goals drying up for the Whites, three points and a clean sheet is hardly out of the realm of possibility for Scott Parker’s Cottagers.

Result/Both Teams to Score: Fulham – No

Doubling down on this makes from the simple standpoint of if Fulham is to win on the day, it is likely that they won’t be capable of outperforming Leeds in an attacking sense if Leeds is not kept quiet on the scoresheet. It really comes down to that simple fact, especially when you consider that the Cottagers average less than a goal-per-match this season.

Fulham vs Leeds United: Match preview

There are two avenues to walk down when your back is against the wall and you face the prospect of relegation; you can capitulate and allow the narrative that you are hopeless to be written for you – and subsequently, believe it – or you can use it as fuel to right the ship and dig yourself out. According to Fulham’s Tom Cairney, his side opted for the latter of the two schools of thought.

It was not terribly long ago where Fulham seemed like a nailed-on favourite to be relegated along with Sheffield United. Fast forward to the current situation, and the Cottagers sit just two points from safety. Though they have a difficult run of fixtures to negotiate as the season roars into to its final months, there has unquestionably been a renewed sense of confidence at Craven Cottage. Their football and level of performance have improved, and though they still struggle to find goals regularly, they do not look or operate like a side that is having to drag themselves across the line.

Scott Parker deserves an enormous amount of credit for continuously trying to improve his position as a young manager when so many others before him have found themselves incapable of changing their ways or direction. Parker has given his side a real chance to achieve something many have felt was not possible, and credit must certainly also be given for some of the recruitment done by the club. Players like Alphonse Areole, Ademola Lookman, Josh Maja, Joachim Andersen, and Kenny Tete have all played to a level considerably higher than where Fulham is on the global footballing ladder. And all of them have played an important role in helping the club put itself in a position to survive.

But it all circles back to that measure of confidence and belief that you are good enough to improve as a collective, which has arguably been the biggest overall factor under Parker as their form improved. Should they survive, they can happily look back at the criticism they once received and be thankful for it.

Running out of steam could be expected but Leeds United must be wary

At the start of the season, the Premier League welcoming Leeds United back to the English top-flight was a breath of fresh air and an ode to a bygone era where the Elland Road outfit was one of the best sides in the country. With a manager of the gravitas of Marcelo Bielsa at the helm, many wanted to see the Whites climb up the table and back into relative prominence. That could still happen, and the way Leeds conducted themselves in the transfer market under the Argentine has been nothing short of brilliant. But at the moment things seem to be falling off the rails in West Yorkshire and there is a justifiable cause for concern.

With just one win (and four points total) in their last six Premier League outings, Bielsa’s men have dropped firmly into the bottom half of the table (12th) with just three points separating them and the possibility of falling further down the table as low as fifteenth. Europe is completely off the table, and though a top-half finish in their first season back in the Premier League since 2004, it is still prudent to push for the highest possible finish you can achieve. Starting strong is one thing, but the manner in which Leeds deploy was never going to be sustainable over the course of a full season at the highest level, and the current regression is probably not as shocking as it seems on paper.

There is a lot to like about the way Leeds goes about their football when in possession, something that was evident about their brand of football when they were down in the Championship last season. They play freely, they play with intent, and they want to go out and score goals. It’s admirable indeed when you compare how Sheffield United conducted themselves last season, but to Chris Wilder’s credit, there is a reason the Blades finished in the top half and Leeds could well struggle to achieve the same this term and that comes down to issues at the back.

The goals – overall – are sure to come, even if they are in a down period on that front at the minute, but the struggles at the back are the direct reason why they are falling somewhat short of expectations. Defensive solidarity will always trump goal-scoring prowess, even when you compare two teams chasing the title. You can bag twenty more goals than the club you’re competing against, but if they are better without the ball, chances are they will finish ahead of you in the long run. For Leeds, and Bielsa – for however long he is at the club – a better balance must be struck if they are to progress back to the heights they were accustomed to for so long.
