Goal-shy Cardiff City to come unstuck to Fulham this weekend
Competition: Premier League
Market: Fulham to win against Cardiff
Odds: 21/10 @ William Hill
This weekend sees the lowest scorers in the Premier League face the team with the worst defensive record. Cardiff have rippled the back of the net just 16 times in 28 league games this season, while Fulham have conceded a staggering 62 goals.
Something has to give between a side who find scoring in the Premier League incredibly difficult, and a side who cannot stop conceding in every game they play in. With the Cottagers not having kept a clean sheet since December last year, they are in desperate need to find a formula that will stop them shipping goals so readily.
Cardiff are in real trouble. They have scored in just two of their last nine Premier League games. They’ve won just once in their previous 12 league outings, and are currently three points adrift of safety, while having played a game more.
All the signs so far point to a Fulham away win, which would be their first on their travels since Boxing Day. The Londoners haven’t had a problem scoring goals at all of late – with Magath’s men bagging six from their previous four against Manchester United, Liverpool, West Brom, and Chelsea.
As a result, Fulham will go into tomorrow’s game with a lot of confidence they can stop the rot.
