Our match prediction:
Leeds United are eyeing their first win of the season. The Whites suffered a 2-0 loss to Queens Park Rangers in their opener, while losing to Birmingham City (1-2) at their Elland Road at the weekend. Leeds United sit in the relegation zone ahead of day 3 and, no doubt, they are going to fight tooth and nail in order to pick up at least one point from Tuesday’s match against Fulham. Slavisa Jokanovic is doing a great job with the capital club and they will be looking to build on back-to-back wins over Newcastle United and Preston when they take on Leeds United at Elland Road. Seeing that both teams will go for a win, we predict that over 2.5 goals will be scored in Tuesday’s football match. Matt Smith has been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season and the 27-year-old English attacker is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.

Highlighted Team (Fulham):
Fulham are a club from London that play in the Championship. 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. 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).
