Derby County vs Fulham
The Cottagers are stronger than Derby and have more talented players in their ranks with Ryan Sessegnon being the most coveted player of the two teams. But this is a two-leg playoff match and either of the two teams can win this tie. Just take a look at Huddersfield for that matter. They finished 5th in the championship last season and won their two playoffs via two penalty shootouts.
This is also a peculiar matchup between two teams aiming to get rid of the horrors of the past.

Fulham was in the playoffs last season and was knocked out by Reading in 2016-17. Also, they had the opportunity to win the automatic qualification last weekend but they lost 3-1 against Birmingham City which was their first league defeat since December. So there are definitely some questions about their ability to handle the pressure in the big matches.
