Fulham and Swansea shall try to recover from their disappointing matches. Fulham have the home court advantage. Yet, Swansea’s dominance in their previous encounters, make them a heavy favorite of football betting sites.

 

 

Fulham vs. Swansea City Preview

 

Match Date: 23 November 2013 (local time)

Venue: Craven Cottage

 

Team Form

Fulham

A 4-0 thrashing from Liverpool left Fulham spiraling down to the relegation zone. Just a week before the match, the club was sitting comfortably in the 14th spot.

 

Fulham’s scrimmage against Liverpool was pivotal. If they won, they could have made their way to the top 10. But if they lose, just like what happened, they will immediately see themselves in the bottom pit.

 

The loss was Fulham’s 3rd consecutive defeat. Moreover, this is also the 3rd time that they conceded more than 2 goals. Such performance speaks of their dwindling defence and offense—something that should be addressed immediately.

 

Swansea City

Swansea is another club, which suffered a major let down last week. The draw with Stoke City added an extra point. Yet, it hardly improved their rank.
Coming strong from the 9th spot, the club descended to the 13th spot. Swansea is still safe from the relegation zone. But they are not very far away from such area. Against Fulham, winning is their only option.

 

Football betting tip: Fulham 1-2 Swansea City

A better team form gives Swansea an immediate advantage in the match. They should be wary though since they will be playing in a different territory. It must be also noted that Swansea dominated 3 of their last 6 encounters while Fulham only won twice.
