Fulham hosts Swansea City in round 35 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Wednesday, February 26th at Craven Cottage (London)
Fulham really wants to return to the Premier League, which it left last season. And it wants to promote there directly, bypassing playoff matches. To do this, the team needs to take place no lower than the second. And to take this place, the Cottagers need to win back a handicap of five points. They are third in the standings now. But how can Fulham win back it, if it managed to score only two points in the last three matches?

Swansea can also compete for promotion to the elite division. It also played there two seasons ago. The Swans are on the ninth line in the standings. And they lag behind the 6th place, which grants the right to playoffs, by only six points. The distance of 12 remaining rounds of the Championship is enough for this.
I can’t understand why the Welsh are underestimated, given the recent failures of Fulham. After all, the advantage is on the side of Swansea even according to head-to-head matches. Opponents met 9 times over the past 11 years. And the Swans won in five matches. The Cottagers gained victories only three times. And Swansea knows how to score Fulham. The team from Wales failed to score in only one of nine abovementioned confrontations. In this championship, Swansea did not score in only eight of 34 matches. I don’t know whether the Swans will earn points, but they will surely score again.
Prediction for the match: Swansea to score over 0.5 goals
