Football prediction The London derby will determine the last participant in the Premier League
Fulham lost with 1:2 to Cardiff City, but with a total score of 3:2 qualified for the playoff finals to determine the last new player in the Premier League. There, his opponent will be another London team - Brentford, and the winner will join Leeds and West Bromwich, who have secured a direct promotion to the elite. Fulham won their visit to Wales with 2:0 and was the absolute favorite before the rematch, but it turned out to be much harder for Scott Parker`s players than they expected. The star of the team Alexandar Mitrovic watched the match from the stands of `Craven Cottage`. The Serbian international has not yet fully recovered from his injury, but is expected to be ready for the clash with Brentford.
Cardiff started stronger and took the lead in the 8th minute after a cross from a corner and a goal with the head of the central defender Curtis Nelson. The hosts claimed a violation against goalkeeper Marek Rodak, but the repetitions showed that there was none. Fulham`s response came in the next attack with a goal by Neeskens Kebano. He was in the right place after a cross by Bobby Reid and overtook Leandro Bacuna to send the ball into the net. Until the break, the hosts dominated and could make a complete turnaround, but missed a few positions in front of the door of Alex Smithies. The manager of the guests Neil Harris took a double substitution and with the start of the second half Lee Tomlin and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing appeared in the game. In the 47th minute, Tomlin led the Welsh for the second time. The goal error was made by the central defender Michael Hector, who did not clear the ball well after saving Rodak. This goal made the Fulham players nervous, who no longer acted so confidently. In the 67th minute, the reserve player Aboubakar Kamara shot dangerously, and seconds later Smithies shot the ball into the crossbar and kept the lead of Cardiff City. The minutes to the end were very nervous. Fulham tried to hold the ball longer, but the aggression of their guests drove them to create several tense situations for Rodak. The last chance for the Welsh was deep in added time, when Robert Nesta Glatzel shot from volley, but it was not enough for him to send the match by ivory cost fixtures and standings
in overtime. The final between Fulham and Brentford will be played on August 4.
