Bournemouth host Fulham at the Vitality Stadium in the EFL Championship on Saturday, with both sides having strong seasons so far.

Bournemouth are currently second in the league, nine points behind Fulham. Scott Parker's side have faltered of late, having won only two of their last five games. They will look to turn things around with a win against Fulham on Saturday.

Having already secured promotion to the Premier League, Fulham have nothing left to play for this season. Marco Silva's side will be going into the game off the back of a 3-0 win against Preston North End last time out. They should still look to win the game against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Focused on Fulham πŸ’―

Bournemouth are close to securing promotion to the Premier League themselves and that should make for an exciting matchup.

Bournemouth vs Fulham Head-to-Head

Bournemouth have dominated the recent head-to-head record between the two sides, having won three of their last five meetings, with Fulham winning only one.

The two sides played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture earlier this season. Tosin Adarabioyo scored late on to rescue a point for Fulham after Dominic Solanke gave Bournemouth the lead early in the second-half.

Bournemouth vs Fulham Prediction

Both sides have been in similar form of late and that should come to the fore during the game.

With Fulham having already clinched promotion, they have the luxury of not taking the game as seriously as Bournemouth.

With that being said, we predict a tight game, with Bournemouth coming away with the win.

Prediction: Bournemouth 2-1 Fulham
