Football betting is getting more intense with Fulham’s “ambitious bid” to sign strikers Simon Zoller and Konstantinos Mitroglou. It will be exciting to see these two convert, (if the deal pushes through) against the dominant Southampton.

Fulham’s “ambitious bid” for strikers, Simon Zoller and Konstantinos Mitroglou has its own merits and bearing. With how other clubs have exerted effort to strengthen their flanks, the Cottagers cannot afford to be left behind.


Just recently, Fulham earned its third consecutive defeat. Swansea kept them at bay with three (3) goals and they never had the chance to answer back. This form places them in a very uncompromising situation. Occupying the 17th spot barely gives them the chance to relax as the battle for survival becomes harder every day.


Securing the services of reliable attacking options such as Zoller and Mitroglou is one of the most potent ways to ensure their survival. Many of the squads, even the ones in the rock bottom part of the table are finding ways to bolster their lineup and ensure their appearance the next season and as mentioned, Fulham cannot afford to stare and remain apathetic about the situation.



Southampton did an impressive performance when they force Arsenal to settle for a draw. Unfortunately, the stalemate prevented them from moving higher in the table.


With the draw, Southampton now has an equal number of victories, losses and stalemates in their last six (6) matches. The club can use their “frustration” to inspire a win against Fulham and eventually, move to a higher rank. This is highly possible since their current form remains competitive despite the even steven finish.


Online betting’s top pick:   Southampton

If the ambitious bid pushes through, it will be exciting to see how Fulham will work its way to survival. Yet, until signatures have been secured, the upper hand goes to Southampton. Fulham has already lost twelve (12) of its last fifteen (15) matches and this something that Southampton want to readily exploit.
