Fulham hosts Peterborough United in round 34 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Wednesday, February 23rd at Craven Cottage (London)
The Championship is a tough competition. Here you can never be sure of your superiority. And it seems that Fulham players forgot this common truth and early believed in their invincibility. It is difficult to explain the results of the last two matches in another way. Hull City was beaten with a minimal goal difference (0-1), and then the Cottagers unexpectedly lost to Huddersfield at home (1-2). It was their first defeat at Craven Cottage in the current calendar year. With such production (an average of 2.5 goals per round), such results are somewhat strange. Yes, Fulham remains on the first line, but it has problems with conversion and does not gain convincing victories. The Cottagers won only one out of five last games with a difference of more than two goals. Will they have another tough match?

Peterborough United tries to save face. The Championship debutant is desperately fighting for survival, but the recent results were unsatisfactory. The Blue-Whites have not won for a long time, and they are the worst in terms of points scored on foreign pitches. In the last round, they lost to Derby County, which is one of their main competitors. On average, Peterborough scores less than one goal per round. It seems that the main goal of the outsider is not to lose to Fulham with an indecent score. In addition, the Blue-Whites have problems with the roster.
I would not recommend betting on a confident victory of Fulham. It’s not all that simple. In the first head-to-head match of this season, the Posh put up a decent resistance to the Cottagers and lost 0-1, having conceded a decisive goal 16 minutes before the final whistle. Yes, the hosts are the leaders of the Championship standings, but they had obvious difficulties in recent matches. I suppose that the outsider will try to earn some points or at least to lose with a minimum score, no matter how strange it may sound.
