Swansea vs Fulham: Tight tussle on the cards in Wales

Kick-off: 1945, 29/11/2019

Stadium: Liberty Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Swansea and Fulham are both pushing for promotion from the Championship this season and a cagey contest could be on the cards when they meet in Wales.

City are far from prolific up front on home turf, netting 11 times in nine games at Liberty Stadium, while the Cottagers have claimed just nine goals in eight away matches.

Those stats make 19/20 for under 2.5 total goals in this clash a percentage pick for our first Swansea vs Fulham prediction.

A Look At Swansea City’s Betting Odds

Swansea extended their unbeaten run on the road to nine games thanks to a solid 1-1 draw at Huddersfield on Tuesday night.

Jay Fulton’s 18th-minute opener was cancelled out by Karlan Grant just before half-time and City were hanging on a bit until Trevoh Chalobah was sent off late on.

Steve Cooper commented: “I thought it could have been a really good football match, but I just think it didn’t get going because of some interesting refereeing decisions for both teams.

“I thought the decisions affected the flow of the game and it ended up being a bit of a stop-start affair.”

The Swans had previously lost 1-0 at home to Millwall, so the feeling is that they are just lacking a bit of cohesion at present.

Looking at the Swansea vs Fulham odds, we think 23/20 for the scores to be level at half-time takes the eye.

A Look At Fulham’s Betting Odds

Fulham should be full of confidence after completing a hat-trick of victories with a 3-0 drubbing of Derby in midweek.

Bobby Decordova-Reid gave them the lead after seven minutes with his first goal for the club when reacting sharply to a cross by Aboubakar Kamara.

Top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic headed his 13th goal of the season from Ivan Cavaleiro’s corner before the break and then set up a late third for captain Tom Cairney.

Scott Parker beamed: “What pleased me most is that we saw a team of players who executed the game plan.

“We limited them to no shots on target and that was our application and our base.

“From there, we have the quality to build attacks and be deadly – and we were that.”

The Cottagers do seem on an upward curve, but only one goal scored in their last three away fixtures remains a cause for concern.

Let’s finish off our Swansea vs Fulham betting tips by taking 17/4 for this to be a draw at half-time and full-time.
