Our prediction for this Championship match:
Aston Villa and Fulham face each other at Villa Park in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining matches of Saturday’s program. The Villans did remarkably well to beat Reading at Madejski Stadium in midweek, with Jordan Ayew scoring the winner for the visitors in the dying minutes of the match for the penalty spot. Steve Bruce’s men aim to escape the danger zone and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Fulham in Saturday’s football match. The Cottagers have been producing fine performances of late and new signing Chris Martin has found his goal-scoring touch. The capital club came from behind to share the spoils with Norwich City on Tuesday evening and it has to be noted that Slavisa Jokanovic’s team scored six goals in last two league fixtures. Fulham are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and we predict that both teams are going to find the net in the Villa Park clash.
Highlighted Player (Gabriel Agbonlahor):
Gabriel Agbonlahor was born in Birmingham on 13 October, 1986. The English footballer began his youth career in his home-town club Aston Villa and he has been playing for the Villa Park outfit ever since. Agbonlahor, though, played ten league games for the likes of Watford and Sheffield Wednesday in 2005 on loan.
The pacey attacker, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, scored 16 goals for Aston Villa in the 2009/2010 Premier League campaign and he helped the team made it to the League Cup final the same season. In 2015 Gabriel Agbonlahor participated in the FA Cup final with Aston Villa, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Villans.
The Gunners crushed Aston Villa 4-0 in the title game. Agbonlahor has 16 caps for England U21 team and he played three matches for the senior team. He has yet to score for the England national team. It has to be noted that Gabriel’s father is Nigerian, while his mother is Scottish.
Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Premier League. The capital club dropped to the English second tier at the end of the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign after failing to impress in the elite competition, but managed to return in season 2018/2019.
Fulham were founded in 1879 and they play their home matches at Craven Cottage. Fulham are the oldest-established club from the English capital to have played in the top flight.
Fulham finished the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign in seventh place in the standings and that is considered the team’s biggest success, speaking of their participation in the Premier League.
The Cottagers played in the Europa League twice and they did well to reach the FA Cup final in 1975, but they were beaten by their local rivals West Ham United in the title game (0-2). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
