Our tipster expects an open, entertaining contest with goals at both ends when Neil Warnock's Bluebirds play host to Scott Parker's men on Friday

Friday night football comes from Cardiff City Stadium as Neil Warnock's Bluebirds face Fulham.

Cardiff have collected maximum points from both of their Championship fixtures on home soil this season and will be confident of claiming another vital victory when these teams meet in the Welsh capital.

Scott Parker's men, though, lost to Nottingham Forest in this competition last weekend. Fulham, therefore, will be looking for the result that gets their push for promotion firmly back on track.

Both sides suffered defeat in the Carabao Cup in midweek. Cardiff lost 3-0 at home to Luton Town, while Fulham fell to Premier League Southampton.

Cardiff vs Fulham latest odds

The Bluebirds can be backed at 7/4 (2.75) with bet365 to get back to winning ways here, having won this fixture 4-2 in the Premier League last season.

However, that is the only time that Cardiff have beaten Fulham in the last nine matches between the clubs and Parker's side are 31/20 (2.55) favourites with bet365 to come out on top here. The odds compilers offer 11/5 (3.20) that Friday's fixture ends in stalemate.

Cardiff vs Fulham team news

German striker Robert Glatzel is still searching for his first goal for the Bluebirds. The 25-year-old striker is expected to lead the line for the hosts in the Welsh capital.

Fulham have no such problems in front of goal. Aleksandar Mitrovic has scored four goals in five Championship appearances so far this season whilst Ivan Cavaleiro, on loan from Wolves, has scored three times.

This is a fixture that has certainly produced plenty of goals over the years. Indeed, there have been goals at both ends in all but two of the last 17 games between the teams.

Both of the previous two matches between these teams on Welsh soil produced six goals and it is, therefore, no surprise that bet365 offer just 4/5 (1.80) that there are at least three goals scored on Friday night.

Cardiff vs Fulham prediction

Value appears to lie in backing a goal-laden game when Fulham travel to take on Cardiff. The 11/10 (2.10) quote for at least three goals to be scored - with scoring at both ends - could well prove popular.

The selection would have landed in each of the last four fixtures contested in Cardiff between these sides.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.

Over 2.5 goals and both teams to score at 11/10 (2.10) for a 2pt stake at bet365
