Our football match prediction:
Both Sheffield Wednesday and Fulham did well to book their place in the Championship play-offs, but, no doubt, there will be fireworks when the two teams face each other at Hillsborough Stadium on the last day of the season. The Owls are on a six-game winning run in the league ahead of Sunday’s football match and we predict that the will find the net against Slavisa Jokanovic’s troops. The Cottagers have been in a thrilling form of late as well and seeing that they have been scoring goals for fun in the Championship this season, there is every chance the capital club will score in the Hillsborough Stadium showdown as well. However, considering that the play-offs are just around the corner, both coaches are likely to experiment in Sunday’s clash. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, share of spoils appears on the horizon.
Highlighted Player (Glenn Loovens):
Glenn Loovens is the son of Hans Loovens, who used to play for FC Twente in the past. Unlike his father, Glenn started his senior career at Feyenoord and it has to be noted that he played 27 league games for de Trots van Zuid. The right-footed defender played for the likes of Excelsior, De Graafschap and Cardiff City on loan between 2003 and 2006 and then he decided to sign a permanent deal with the Welsh outfit. After playing 67 games for the Bluebirds, he joined Celtic on 16 August, 2008 and it has to be noted that he scored 8 goals in 61 appearances for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. In 2012 he moved to Spain, signing a deal with Zaragoza and he played 21 games for the La Romareda outfit in La Liga. Loovens then decided to return to England as he signed a contract with Sheffield Wednesday. Speaking of his international career, the Sheffield Wednesday footballer has two caps for Netherlands, while playing 6 games for the U-21 team.
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). Chelsea are regarded as Fulham’s bitter rivals as well and the two teams take on each other in the North London derby.
