Fulham take on the visitors Brentford in the round 3 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, August 20th at Craven Cottage (London)
Fulham start in EPL well this time. The Cottagers make the 3rd attempt in a row actually gain a foothold in the Premier League. Both previous attempts ended in relegation at the end of the first year - ingloriously in 2019, with a struggle in 2021. In general, the club us a fairly typical “lift”, and already with Marco Silva it was possible to dominate again in the last Championship draw. But the main thing is, will the Portuguese cope with the new, main challenge - to keep his wards at the highest level? The team started sensationally when, due to Mitrovic's double, they took a draw against Liverpool. And then there was a goalless draw with Wolverhampton at their arena.

Brentford pleases its fans again. The Bees made their debut in the Premier League a year ago. And they were able to spend a decent season, confidently winning the right to stay in this division. It was embarrassing that it was gradually becoming more and more difficult for the team of Thomas Frank, and the one who gave a new breath into the team, Eriksen, left as a free agent. Well, Christian did not help his new team in the last round, moreover, Manchester United shamefully and devastatingly lost to the ex-newcomer 0-4. And all the goals were already scored by the 35th minute! A week before, Brentford, “burning” by two goals at the “King Power” Leicester, managed to make a comeback for a draw in the last half hour. Note Joshua Dasilva. The midfielder is 23 and has spent his entire career with the Bees. But if last season the player only came on as a substitute 9 times and did not really remember anything, now he managed to score in both matches.
Brentford won twice in the 2019/2020 season as part of the regular season, but then lost the most important dispute - at Wembley, in the play-off final for promotion to the Premier League. True, already in the autumn they took a revenge, already within the framework of the cup. For experts, the chances of Fulham and Brentford are about equal. But the Bees are now more experienced in the Premier League and have started well in the new season. We recommend betting that Thomas Frank's wards will not lose.
Prediction for the match: Brentford to win with +0.5 handicap (X2).
