Our football match prediction:
Despite being considered one of main favourites to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League, Fulham sit in 13th place in the Championship standings ahead of Matchday 7. The Cottagers have recorded only one win in the English second tier this season and, no doubt, they are eager to return to winning ways. Slavisa Jokanovic’s troops were on the verge of beating league leaders Cardiff City at the weekend, but the Bluebirds eventually scored a late goal at Craven Cottage and picked up one point from the match. Hull City suffered an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Derby Count at iPro Stadium, with the team extending their losing run on the road to three games in all competitions. Fulham are desperate to start a winning run in the league and we predict that they are going to give fans some cheer on Wednesday evening. In their last meeting in London (FA Cup) Fulham crushed Hull City (4-1).
Highligted Player (Neeskens Kebano):
Despite the fact that he was born in France Neeskens Kebano represents Congo on the international stage. Kebano has 6 caps for France U20 team, but made his debut for the first team with Congo on 15 October, 2014. The right-footed midfielder scored on his debut and it has to be noted that Congo defeated Ivory Coast 4-3 back then. Kebano started his club career at Paris Saint-Germain, playing eight league games for les Parisiens in Ligue 1. After ending his loan spell with Caen he joined Charleroi in 2013 and he scored 36 goals in 77 league appearances for the Belgian outfit. Genk scouts spotted him during the 2014/2015 season and he moved to the fellow Belgian side in the summer of 2015. After spending one season at Genk, he signed a three-year contract with Fulham on 26 August, 2016. He made his Fulham debut the next day against Blackburn Rovers. Reports in England said that he terrorised Blackburn defence. His contract with the Cottagers expires on 30 June, 2019.
Highlighted Team (Hull City):
Hull City are a professional football club that was founded back in 1904. The Tigers used to play their home games at Boothferry Park, but they moved to the KC Stadium in 2002. The stadium capacity is 24,450. Hull impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and, as a result, they returned to the English Premier League. Hull City fans consider Leeds United their main rivals, but Sheffield United are regarded as Hull’s fierce rivals as well. Steve Bruce took over the reins at the club in 2012 and the experienced tactician helped the team book a place in the 2013/2014 FA Cup final, but Arsenal proved to be a big catch for the Tigers in the title decider. Hull City finished the 2013/2014 Premier League campaign in 16th place in the standings to achieve their highest ever top flight finish. It has to be noted that Curtis Davies was named the team’s player of the year in the 2013/2014 season.
