Aston Villa vs Fulham Betting Tips & Preview - EFL Championship

After a long season in the EFL Championship and 48 matches each - Aston Villa and Fulham have earned the right to play under the Wembley arch for English Premier League status. This match is known by many as the ‘richest match in football’, with estimated rewards of upwards of £160 million.

Fulham and Aston Villa got through tough play-off semi-finals to get here - Aston Villa winning 1-0 on aggregate against Middlesbrough while Fulham came from 1-0 down in the 1st leg against Derby to qualify after a 2-0 home victory.

Just 5 points separated Fulham and Aston Villa at the end of the regular season, although Fulham were in much the better form at the season end. The ‘Cottagers’ lost just 1 of their last 20 Championship matches in 2018 (W15, D4, L1), with only 4 of those wins seeing Fulham concede.

Regardless of the result, Fulham have gone one play-off round further than they did last season. Ultimately, Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic believes that the recent experience of play-off heartache will be key in this match of a lifetime, simply stating: "We are playing a massive club, we know what we are going to face.”

This should be a tightly fought affair, especially if Fulham are sucked into Aston Villa’s usual match plan. With every EFL Championship play-off match so far this season featuring under 2.5 goals, Fulham need to go for it from the off and starve Aston Villa of possession.

This could be loan striker Aleksandar Mitrovic’s final match for Fulham if they fail to win. Mitrovic has scored 12 goals from 19 appearances since his arrival at Craven Cottage.

Robert Snodgrass has assisted Aston Villa teammate James Chester for 4 goals this term. Snodgrass has the joint-highest number of assists in the Championship with 14.

Aston Villa have kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 7 matches, but on the flipside, Aston Villa have scored just 1 goal in their last 3 matches.

Fulham have scored first in 5 of their last 7 matches against Aston Villa, who are themselves without a clean sheet in 3 clashes against the Londoners.
