Both teams will find the net

These teams have had a good scoring record in the last five seasons. And while less than half of previous encounters had goals on one side, we are tipping a different outcome in this game based on recent performances. The hosts have lost only once in the last five matches while Fulham has not lost in as many games.

More than two goals expected

Our second tip backs more than two goals at full-time. Fulham averages 2.2 goals in the last five games. And because we are backing both sides to find the net, more than two goals look good on the books.

Fulham to win

Fulham will bank on their high pressing style of play to edge out Birmingham in the second round of the EFL Cup. This is a single-leg match and we are betting on Fulham’s 5-match unbeaten run of 4W and 1D should motivate the visitors to defeat the hosts that have 3W, 1D and 1L in the last five games.

Fulham Hopes to Beat Birmingham for the Third Time in a Row

In the last five meetings, only one game had goals on both sides. So, why are we backing both sides to find the net in this fixture? Find out in team previews below.

Birmingham

The hosts have lost only once since the start of a new season. They have scored in three games since then, totalling seven goals. That is an average of 1.4 goals in five games. They should score at least once in this fixture if everything works according to plan for head coach, Lee Bowyer. The manager averages 1.80 points in 15 games since taking over in March this year.

Fulham

By any standards, Fulham comes to this game as the best side. The visitors have experienced players and are unbeaten in the last five games. Fulham currently tops the Championship table with 10 goals scored in four games and only three conceded. The visitors average 2.2 goals in the last five matches. Moreover, Fulham will bank on the tactical prowess of former Everton, Watford and Hull City head coach, Marco Silva, to get a result in this game. Silva previously managed Olympiacos, Sporting CP and Estoril.
