FUL vs DER Dream11 Team Prediction Championship Playoff, Semifinal, 2nd Leg Football – Fantasy Team News
Fulham vs Derby County
Championship Playoff, Semifinal, 2nd Leg
FUL vs DER Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Fulham would have been a Premier League team by now had they won against Birmingham City, a team which finished at 19th and a massive 42 points below them, in the final league game of the season. But they lost 3-1 and now find themselves in the Championship playoffs for the 2nd year running.
The Cottagers are at home in the 2nd leg and will be aiming to overturn a 1-0 deficit after they lost in the first leg at Pride Park Stadium by the same scoreline. To be true, the scoreline doesn’t reflect the real picture. It was Fulham who bossed the game as they had a massive 74% possession and also had 13 attempts to Derby County’s only 3 in that match.
However, not everything is doom and gloom for Fulham as they can count on their home form to turn things around. They have 12 wins and 2 draws in their last 14 games and have scored in 40 of their last 42 home games in Championship. But the way things panned out in the 1st leg, it could be a long night for the home team as the visitors are expected to defend in numbers as they did at Pride Park Stadium and looked threatening on the counter-attack.
But Fulham have the attacking quality in their ranks and the players like Ryan Sessegnon, Tom Cairney and Aleksandar Mitrovic have the ability to produce some magic moments at any point in the game.

FUL vs DER Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
It’s difficult to call where this game could go at the end of the final whistle. Fulham have a good home record and should score a goal considering their goal-scoring streak at Craven Cottage heading into this game.
Meanwhile, Derby County could employ the same tactics they used in the first leg and that is to play a counter-attacking football, and that’ why we are backing them to score a goal in this game.
A 2-1 home win is our prediction.
