Match Summary

One to Watch: Aleksandar Mitrovic

Aleksandar Mitrovic has made a fine start to the 2018-19 campaign, managing five Premier League goals in his eight appearances thus far.

Fulham certainly face a tough task when it comes to keeping hold of the striker, who last registered in the 1-1 draw against Watford on September 22.

There is no question that the Serbian will fancy his chances of causing Cardiff problems in this match due to the Welsh club’s struggles this term.

The 24-year-old is available at 19/5 in the first goalscorer market with 888sport, which should certainly be considered as part of the best football betting tips for the weekend.

Cardiff City vs Fulham Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Cardiff finally stop the rot this weekend?

Cardiff City’s search for their first win of the 2018-19 Premier League season will continue this weekend when they welcome Fulham to Wales. Cardiff are currently rock bottom of the Premier League table having collected just two points from their eight matches thus far. Fulham, meanwhile, sit just above the relegation zone in 17th spot, having picked up five points thus far this term. Both teams were promoted from the Championship last season, and there is simply no downplaying the importance of this weekend’s match at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Cardiff are 29/20 as part of the best football betting tips. There is no getting away from the fact that the Welsh outfit have had a very tough start to the season. Indeed, as mentioned above in this Premier League preview, Neil Warnock’s side have collected just two points from their eight matches to sit bottom. Cardiff have also only scored four times in the league this term, and have lost each of their last six in the top flight, including home defeats to Arsenal, Manchester City and Burnley.

Fulham are 19/10 to pick up all three points from the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The capital outfit, as mentioned above in this Premier League preview, sit 17th on five points. Slavisa Jokanovic’s team have only won one of their eight top-flight matches this term, and will enter this game off the back of a 5-1 home defeat to Arsenal. Fulham have not actually won on their travels in the Premier League since April 2014, but they did record a 4-2 victory away to Cardiff on their last visit in the Championship last December.

The draw is available at 9/4, which is certainly worth considering as part of our Premier League predictions. Three of the last five meetings between Cardiff and Fulham have actually finished level, including in Wales last February. Cardiff will be looking for something to stop their losing run this weekend, while Fulham would certainly welcome an away point due to their problems on the road.

Predicted Score: Cardiff City 1 - 1 Fulham
