Cardiff City: Team form, news, and statistics
So far Cardiff has been to the Premier League twice but has never lasted more than a season. Now he wants to return to the strongest championship in the world, but he will not have an easy mission at all.
After a weaker start to the season, Neil Warnock was fired and replaced by Neil Harris, the former coach of Millwall.
The results did not come easily at all, but after a period of accommodation, the team’s game changed. The victories came, and slowly but surely he climbed the rankings.
With nine points he gets in the last three matches, he secured the fifth place. In the last stage, he played on his field with the last ranked, Hull City.
As expected, he did not encounter any difficulties and won without problems with 3-0, and in the second half, a few starters were changed, so as not to risk any injury.
He got most of the points on his field, from where only three teams were able to start with all three points at stake: Bristol City, Nottingham, and Blackburn.
However, it should be mentioned that he obtained only 11 victories in the 23 matches. Defensive created a lot of problems in the 46 matches played.
She received 58 goals, being the weakest of the teams ranked on the playoffs.
Tim Tomlin was one of the most important players of the current season, with eight goals scored and ten assists.
Isaac Vassell and Greg Cunningham are not available for this match.
Fulham: Team form, news, and statistics
Fulham is aiming for promotion to the Premier League, and Scott Parker knows this very well.
Although he has no experience at this level, he accepted the challenge.
He has the most valuable team in the Championship, with which he had to get at least second place.
He was not far from a direct promotion, but he missed a huge chance.
In the 44th round, he played away at West Brom, where he scored only one point, although he had to force in the attack because he had nothing to lose.
In the last stage, she went to Wigan without any motivation, where she drew, 1-1, after being led 1-0.
In the matches played on a foreign field, he practices a defensive football, based on a counterattack.
For this reason, he suffered only five defeats in the 23 matches played.
The defensive has been the team’s strong point this season.
Even if he received 48 goals, in a championship where he scores a lot, as in the Championship, it is an acceptable figure.
In the offensive, he has a thoroughbred striker, the Serbian Aleksandar Mitrovic, who reached 26 successes, being the best scorer in the championship.
He is only 25 years old and given his talent, he can play in the Premier League.
Harrison Reed is suspended while Ivan Cavaleiro is still injured.

Football Prediction of the Day Cardiff City vs Fulham
The main favorite to qualify for the final is Fulham. He has a more valuable team, with players who have evolved in the Premier League and who are doing very well in difficult and tense moments. He is going through an excellent period, and in the last seven stages he did not feel the taste of defeat.
Cardiff, on the other hand, starts with a second chance, and because of the defense I don’t think it has any chance of victory. For this reason, I will bet on the victory of the guests, at Asian handicap 0.
