A Cardiff (W1, L4) side battling tooth and nail against relegation travel to already relegated Fulham (W2, L3) in search of three points. Entering the round just three points behind Brighton, survival is still a possibility for the Welsh visitors.
Frustratingly for the visitors, Fulham have all of a sudden won two matches in a row while keeping a clean sheet in both. That’s somewhat surprising considering they are the worst defensive side in the league (76 conceded – 2.17 on average per match), and hadn’t previously won two consecutive league matches this season.
They have, however, lost four of their last five home matches, and all season they’ve just kept two clean sheets in the league here, while conceding two goals or more in 12 of 17 so far.
Cardiff, meanwhile, have taken three points in their last five matches – enough to climb two points closer to Brighton as the fight for survival intensifies. Three of their last five matches have been against top six sides, while two of their last three are against teams with little to play for.
Their away performances, however, fail to inspire confidence. Eleven goals scored in 17 matches is the joint worst output in the league, while curiously they’ve lost three of their last four away league matches by the same 2-0 scoreline (plus won 2-0).
Players to watch: Aleksandar Mitrović (FUL) has rediscovered form with an assist and a goal in his last two, while Victor Camarasa has scored two of Cardiff’s last five goals.
Stat attack: Eight straight competitive H2Hs have featured both teams scoring and averaged 3.75 total goals per match.
Fulham have been shown two yellow cards or more in ten straight league home matches – precisely two in eight of those.
These teams are in joint second place in the league for matches featuring at least five goals (22.86%).
Seven of Cardiff’s nine league wins this season have been against fellow bottom half teams.
