Fulham can delay their inevitable relegation at Watford this evening and Atletico Madrid can secure a routine home victory.
There hasn’t been a lot to cheer about for Fulham fans this season but they may be able to claim their first points under Scott Parker with a win at Watford.
The Cottagers have lost all four games since the former England international took temporary charge but performances have improved. They’ve also come up against Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City during that run.
Fulham, who were unlucky not to get anything against Chelsea and Liverpool, may be able to take advantage of a Watford outfit who have an FA Cup semi-final against Wolves to come at the weekend.
Javi Gracia has stressed he won’t allow the cup to become a distraction but, with that Wembley date to come on Sunday, it would be a surprise if he didn’t rest a few key men.
Fulham’s relegation will be confirmed if they lose at Vicarage Road but they can hold off the drop for a little while longer with a win at a big price.
A draw or away result is 11/10 in the double chance market if you want to play it safe. However, it could pay to be bold in this midweek Premier League clash and take the price on a Fulham victory.
There are three La Liga games tonight and Atletico Madrid can strengthen their hold on second spot with a win and a clean sheet against visitors Girona.
Los Colchoneros have won nine of their last 11 home games and all of those victories have come with shut-outs.
Girona have been excellent on their travels this season but the Atleti defence is up there with the very best in Europe and this could be a step up in class too far for the Catalan club.
