Betting tips Huddersfield vs Fulham

Promotion hopefuls do battle

Both Fulham and Huddersfield were relegated from the Premier League last season. Which of the two clubs have adapted better upon their return to the Championship? Have a read of our preview here:

Mitrovic will play a massive part

Fulham got off to a poor start when they were defeated at Oakwell on opening day but the ensuing panic from some sections of their support was premature, to say the least.

There will be quite a few sides who will struggle to pick up maximum points at Oakwell this season, but Fulham dusted themselves off well and got a win against a decent Blackburn side to kick start their campaign.

There are no easy games in the Championship, even sides that have come up will offer a tough test as Scott Parker’s men found out last week but having the extra quality in the squad will give the Cottagers a massive advantage.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is a Premier League quality striker and Alex Cairney should also be plying his trade in the top-flight. Scott Parker had to contend with the loss of Ryan Sessegnon on deadline day to Spurs but there is more than enough quality within the Fulham squad to have them challenging at the top end of the Championship.

Mitrovic, however, will be the key man. Goal scorers can help sides dominate at this level and Teemu Pukki, Billy Sharp and Tammy Abraham all played a bit role in getting their respective teams promoted last season. The Serbian international will need to repeat his 2017/18 form at Craven Cottage if Fulham are to make an immediate return to the top-flight.

Terriers need to readjust

Huddersfield may find it harder to bounce back up following their relegation. The man who masterminded their promotion, David Wagner, was shamelessly dismissed and the club now need to rebuild along the same lines.

Aaron Mooy is a big loss although the club made the shrewd decision of getting him to sign a new deal before sending him on loan to Brighton. His midfield tenacity was very important for the side over the last couple of seasons and they will need the likes of Lewis O’Brien and Juninho Bacuna to step up in his place.

Karlan Grant needs to prove himself at this level after a successful time with Charlton but this season feels like it could be a tough one for the Terriers and a return to the promised land may not be realistic in the short term.

Huddersfield v Fulham betting tip

This will be an intriguing game between two sides who competed in the Premier League last season. They both have quality going forward and so backing this one to finish with over 2.5 goals at odds of 10/11 are definitely worth a shout here.
