Match: Aston Villa vs Fulham Competition: England – Championship Play-offs Time / Date: 19:00h / 26th May 2018 Venue: Wembley Stadium
After the long season in England’s second league, where both teams played 48 games, they have the right to play a final playoff for English elite in a Wembley racket known as ‘richest game in football’, with estimated rewards of upwards of £ 160 million.
Both teams played heavy semi-finals, with Villa winning a 1-0 win on aggregate against Boro, while Fulham was able to win a 2-1 win on aggregate after losing 1-0 in the first match.
Aston Villa finished fourth in the regular season after the season began slowly but steady. On the other side, Fulham almost reached a direct promotion by finishing five points from the dreaming spot.
Villa have a lot of experience in the defensive line, but for me the main rivalry will be there between John Terry and Mitrovic.
There are no absent players in both camps.
In the Championship, two teams met four times in the last two years, splitting two wins (Always a home team wins).
This match seems to be nervous and tense as I expect Villa to pull back and keep away from Fulham’s quick players. This will make it difficult for both teams to score goals.
