Fulham takes on the visitors Newcastle United in round 38 of English Premier League. The match will be played on Sunday, May 12th at Craven Cottage (London)
Fulham finishes the season on the up note. A few weeks ago, it was finally confirmed that the Cottagers would leave the Premier League. However, Londoners did not lose heart and won 3 games in a row. And they even managed to beat Everton, which successfully cracked down on the stalwarts this spring. But even more surprising is that Fulham won three games in a row with a clean sheet. And in the away match with Wolverhampton, the Cottagers conceded only 1 goal in the 75th minute. That is, we can dare say that Londoners defend much better at the finish of the season. And this is despite the fact that Fulham has 77 conceded goals at the current moment.

Newcastle performs quite well at the finish of the season. The Magpies scored 7 points in the last 4 games, losing only to Liverpool. However, Newcastle squared off even against the Reds and could get 1 point in the end. It is likely that the team will not throw the final game of the season. However, the Magpies play away unattractively. In the current season, they managed to win only 3 of 18 away matches in the Premier League. And all these victories were earned with a minimal advantage. Actually, Benitez’s players score away less than at home, hence the constant loss of points. Newcastle scored only 14 goals outside St. James Park. Only 3 teams leaving the highest division have worse scoring statistics.
Fulham is not a very convenient opponent for Newcastle. The Magpies lost to the Cottagers in the last 6 away matches. Moreover, Benitez's men did not cope with Londoners even at home in the first leg, having failed even to score. Considering the reliable defensive game of Fulham in the last games, the Cottagers can play with the Magpies with a clean sheet at home either. The opponents shot on Londoners’ target 55 times in the last four matches, but Fulham conceded only 1 goal. Will the hosts manage to score? It is very likely. Newcastle played with a clean sheet in only 1 of the last 11 away games. Fulham did not score only teams from Manchester for a similar number of recent home games. In their field, the Cottagers will take the initiative in their own legs, which they did even while visiting Wolves. And Newcastle is unlikely to stand under the pressure of the hosts.
Prediction for the match: Fulham to win with 0.0 handicap
