A duel that promises a lot: Manchester United vs Fulham

A very good FA Cup match awaits us this Sunday, March 19, a day in which Manchester United will try to take one more step in their goal of winning the oldest trophy in the world. However, the Dutchman Ten Hag will not have such an easy stop, and it is that in front of them there will be a Premier League team willing to snatch the illusion: Marco Alexandre Saraiva da Silva's Fulham. Although the experts predict a resounding victory for the Red Devils, it should not be trusted because we are talking about the most unpredictable football in the world.

Last 10 Manchester United matches

Despite the historic defeat suffered against Liverpool that broke sports forecasts due to the exaggerated result, to say that the balance of United's last 10 matches is bad would be untruthful. On the contrary, Ten Hag's team has shown many qualities, being a more orderly and offensive team than the one received. And it is that of the 10 most recent they lost just 1 of them, winning 7 and tying the remaining two. Regarding the parities, one of them generated quite a bit of anger among the fans: the 2-2 vs. Leeds. This is due to the fact that they expected to beat a smaller team such as the former commanded by Bielsa by a significant difference, something that they did not know how to achieve.

Among the most notable victories, it is impossible not to mention the 2-1 against Barcelona that allowed them to advance to the next phase of the Europa League after having drawn 2-2 in Spain. As if that were not enough, they beat Newcastle in the League Cup final 2-0 and became champions, then they turned the game around West Ham for the FA Cup to win 3-1, and recently they scored nothing less than 4 goals to Real Betis, ensuring a good part of the classification for the next instance of the Europa League.

The great offensive efficiency has made them convert 22 goals, and by conceding 15, the balance remains positive: +7 goals in favor in the last 10 matches. It should be noted that almost half of the 15 were given by Liverpool.

Last 10 Fulham matches

Fulham's present is not bad at all, as they tend to be a fairly competitive team that enjoys when they can tarnish the present for a superior rival. After the loss at home against Tottenham by the slightest difference, an expected defeat according to sports forecasts , they quickly knew how to turn the page and lost just 1 game since that time: 3-2 vs Brentford on 3/6 in what was a real great game. . In the last 10, they have lost 3 times, drawn 3 and won 4, something quite decent for a team that was recently promoted and remains in the top half of the table, with 1 point (and several games) more than Brighton, Brentford and Chelsea.

in the FA Cup , and they knew how to beat Sunderland 3-2 with a great game signed by Tom Cairney, and to get to this tough match they recently beat Leeds 2-0. In this way, in their 10 most recent matches they have scored 12 goals and conceded 9, which leaves a positive balance of +3 goals.

Background between both

Throughout history they have met a total of 84 times, and to no one's surprise, it is Manchester United who have the advantage. Of these, 53 went to the Red Devils side, 18 ended in a draw and 13 stayed in the city of Fulham, London. They played 11 times for the FA Cup and United won 8 of them, yet another reason why they are the clear favorites to get through to the next round.

The magnifying glass on...

It would be a serious mistake not to start talking about who is currently one of the best, if not the best, player in the world: Marcus Rashford. And it is that since the World Cup ended, he converted 18 goals and 4 assists in 22 games, truly amazing numbers that no other player can match. In addition to him, they have the phenomenal Casemiro in midfield, the magical Bruno Fernandes, and both Garnacho and Antony as unbalancing.

The magnifying glass on...

Regarding the Lilywhites, they have a great player in Bernd Leno and up front the Brazilian Willian will try to show his ability, while the always reliable Alex Mitrovic has the ability to convert at any opportunity he gets.

Sports bets

Regarding sports betting , more than one fan will make the decision to bet a large sum on Manchester United, and it is that it is the real candidate to win the game and its odds are 1.55, paying half of the investment. However, we must not forget that we are talking about English football, a football in which anything could happen to such an extent that the Whites could get a draw in the 90' or even win. Your winning share is 7 (depends on the house), while the draw is valued at 4.55. To go more conservative, you could add the "Manchester United qualify" odds to a combination, as it pays 1.25 and it would be logical to happen.

In case you think Fulham will score, the most reliable sports bets are: +0.5 goals at 1.60, and +1.5 at 3.8.
