Our football match prediction:
Tuesday’s football match at Craven Cottage pits together Fulham and Leeds United. The Cottagers did well to outplay Preston in their last home fixture in the Championship, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the game against Leeds United. Slavisa Jokanovic’s troops are five points behind the play-offs places ahead of Matchday 36, but it has to be noted that they have one game in hand. Anyhow, Fulham are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we predict that they will record their fifth consecutive win in front of home fans. Leeds United head into the match following back-to-back victories over the likes of Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City. The Whites are on the right track to book their place in the play-offs, but considering that a win is a must for the hosts, we are tempted to put our money on Slavisa Jokanovic’s team this time out.
Highligted Player (Chris Martin):
Chris Martin is a powerful striker who was eligible to play for either England or Scotland national team. His father was born in Glasgow, but Martin played four games for England U19 team. However, in May 2014 he was called in the senior Scotland squad and he made his debut in a 2-2 draw with Nigeria. Chris Martin netted his first goal for the Scotland national team in a 6-0 win over Gibraltar in the Euro 2016 qualifiers. The 185-cm-tall attacker plays for Derby County, but he began his senior career at Norwich City. He played 102 league games for the Canaries and he scored 25 goals for the club during his seven-year spell at Carrow Road. It has to be noted that he played for the likes of Luton Town, Crystal Palace, Swindon Town on loan before joining Derby County in 2013. Martin is well known for his brilliant aerial skills and he often scores headers. The Scottish footballer scored 14 goals for the Rams in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Leeds United):
Leeds United are one of the clubs that won the FA Cup. The Whites outplayed Arsenal in the final of the prestigious competition back in 1972, but they clinched the League Cup trophy as well. Leeds United faced the Gunners in the 1967/1968 League Cup final and it has to be noted that Terry Cooper scored the winner for the Whites. Leeds play their home games at Elland Road and the capacity of the stadium is 37,914. The club was founded in 1919 and they have won three First Division (Premier League) trophies ever since (1968/1969, 1973/1974, 1991/1992). Leeds United made it to the Champions League final in 1975, but they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the title clash. The Whites were impressive under David O’Leary. The likes of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka and Ian Harte were part of the Elland Road outfit back then and they did well to reach the semis of the Champions League in 2001.
