Fulham – Liverpool betting tip, prediction & odds 21.04.2024

Premier League, Sunday, 21.04.2024

The “Reds” famously fluffed last weekend! Although Jürgen Klopp’s boys managed an xG score of 2.81 after 90 minutes, Crystal Palace returned to the English capital with a surprising 1-0 win.

Meanwhile, in my Fulham Liverpool betting tip, I firmly believe that the game with the ball will have a decisive influence on the course of this match. Both sides can provide plenty of power going forward …

After the “miracle of Bergamo” failed to materialize and Liverpool had to return home with an inadequate 1-0 win, the Premier League now needs to put pressure on new leaders Manchester City.

Both Arsenal and Liverpool slipped up on the previous matchday. As a result, they saw the Citizens slip past them in the standings. However, there are only two points between these three clubs, so we can already look forward to an exciting final spurt in the league.

At Craven Cottage, meanwhile, Jürgen Klopp’s farewell tour across the country awaits an opponent who is already stranded in no man’s land and can no longer really progress in either direction of the table. Will this perhaps stop Fulham from giving 100% effort?

But whether the “Cottagers” put in the effort or not, in the end it’s usually not enough anyway! Fulham have only won one of their last 11 Premier League games against Liverpool (2 draws, 8 defeats).

For this reason, sports betting fans should perhaps opt for a both teams meeting bet, as can be placed using the Betway app – which currently promises odds of around 1.51. The odds of success are higher here.

Although the Reds have not lost any of their last five Premier League games against Fulham, Liverpool have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last eight matches at Craven Cottage – in fact, not since a 1-0 win in April 2009!

And it’s true: even if the home side aren’t known as the “Gunners”, they’re still firing from all cylinders. Liverpool FC should therefore be prepared to concede a goal or two this Sunday.

Fulham have scored 49 goals this Premier League season, having scored 55 last season.

The last time the Cottagers netted more than 50 goals in two consecutive Premier League seasons was during the 2003/04 (52 goals) and 2004/05 (52 goals) campaigns.

FFC have also just come off the back of a 2-0 win over West Ham United in which their offense produced perhaps their best performance of the season.

The home side’s attacking department has rarely been as dangerous this season as it was against the Hammers.

Fulham recorded an expected goals value of around 3.29 and were also able to fire 10 shots on goal, both season highs for the Cottagers in a Premier League game

Meanwhile, in terms of an FFC-friendly 1X2 bet, I wouldn’t want to venture any further than a double chance tip, which currently promises odds of around 2.45.

In contrast, the aforementioned both teams meeting bet is taking on a much clearer shape for me. Also due to the following circumstance:

Liverpool have, after all, always scored at least one goal in their last 19 away games in the Premier League, the longest current streak of any team.

Also interesting: In their entire club history, the Reds had a longer streak of scoring away from home than they did in 21 consecutive games in the then 2nd division between February 1955 and February 1956!

You are of course free to combine a DC-1X option with the aforementioned both-teams-meet option to get combined odds of around 3.30 at numerous sports betting providers.

Meanwhile, if you’re interested in potential goalscorers, the player I’d most like to see score from either side is currently “still” under contract at Fulham

The powerful Andreas Pereira has been involved in four goals in his last four Premier League appearances (2 goals, 2 assists), scoring more goals with his brace against West Ham than in his previous 34 games combined (1 goal).

In fact, Pereira has been involved in more goals than any other Lilywhites player since the start of last season (7 goals, 13 assists).

Conclusion: The Reds could potentially show signs of fatigue in the upcoming match between the hosts and Liverpool, especially after the grueling Europa League battle in Bergamo.

Both teams are likely to fire plenty of shots on goal on Sunday, as FFC are quite capable of keeping up even against strong opposition.

Meanwhile, a point for Fulham is by no means inconceivable, especially if they can run the ball. Nevertheless, I prefer to play it safe in my prediction for you and leave it at a Both-teams-meet tip
