Fulham vs Birmingham England – Championship Date: Sunday, 26 December 2021 Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET Venue: Craven Cottage.
Thanks to their incredible start to the season despite a poor run of games recently, Fulham has managed to hold their position at the top of the Championship.
Following their loss against Coventry City, the club went on a 7 match winning streak. The Whites however have been winless since. Prior to the last matchday, the side registered 4 consecutive draws and in their most recent match lost 0-1 against Birmingham at home.
This drop in form for Fulham can be largely attributed to the lack of goals provided by the attack, which previously proved to be one of the most destructive in the division.
They are currently 2 points clear of Bournemouth on top of the table.
Birmingham meanwhile, with a good run of games, could easily make their ascent in the table due to the tight situation in the middle of the Championship.
However, the Blues have failed to produce such convincing results with just 1 win in their last 7 fixtures, where they have further managed a couple of points.
The club was last seen in a 4-0 decimation against Blackburn Rovers on the road. This has landed them in the 17th position in the league.

Fulham vs Birmingham Prediction
Despite not having the best of games leading into this Sunday, Fulham is still in better form than their opponents. With just a couple of losses at home this season they are expected to seal a comfortable win against a side that has managed just 1 point in their last 4 away fixtures.
Along with their impressive performances, while going forward, the Cottagers have been rock solid in defense. Having conceded the second fewest goals in the division. Although having dropped a few points off late, they have managed 3 clean sheets in 5 matches.
With the Blues scoring less than a goal per match on average this season, they are not likely to find the back of the net this Sunday against the hosts’ defense.
