Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football match at Craven Cottage pits together Fulham and Brentford. The Cottagers have been in a splendid form in the Championship in the season finale and they are on a four-game winning run in the English second tier. Slavisa Jokanovic’s men are three points clear of seventh-placed Leeds United and they are with one foot in the Championship play-offs. Fulham aim to cement their spot in top six with a win over Brentford and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at the Bees in their last home game of the season. Brentford, on the other hand, gave fans some cheer at the weekend, with the team beating QPR at home ground, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturday’s clash against the high-flying capital club. Taking everything into account, there is every chance the hosts will extend their winning run to five games.
Highligted Player (Jazz Richards):
Ashley Darel Jazz Richards is a Cardiff City footballer who can play as both full back and midfielder. Richards was born in Swansea, Wales on 12 April 1991 and he started his senior career in his home town. He made 39 appearances for Swansea City and after spending several seasons on loan at Crystal Palace, Huddersfield Town and Fulham, the Wales international signed a permanent deal with the Cottagers on 24 January, 2015. Richards played 22 league games for Fulham and on 19 July, 2016 he went on to join Cardiff City. He signed a three-year contract with the Bluebirds and was part of the swap which saw Scott Malone move to Craven Cottage. Jazz Richards has 15 caps for Wales U-21 team and he made his debut for the Wales national team on 27 May, 2012 in a 2-0 defeat to Mexico. It has to be noted that Richards is capable of operating as both left-back and right-back.
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300. The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition. Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have always been marred by crowd violence. The colour of Brenftord’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
