Wolves suffered a 3-2 defeat at Fulham in November and their return clash at Molineux could be equally entertaining on Saturday afternoon (15:00), especially as the visitors will have had their confidence boosted by a 2-1 victory at Manchester United in their last away game.

Wolves vs Fulham Prediction

  • Over 2.5 goals @ 4/5
  • #PickYourPunt - Both teams to score, Rodrigo Muniz to score & Joao Palhinha to be carded @ 15/2 

Team News

Wolves will be without forwards Hee-Chan Hwang and Matheus Cunha, but hopes are high that Jose Sa and Pedro Neto will be available.

Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha returns from suspension, but Mexican striker Raul Jimenez will not play against his former club as he has a thigh injury.

Match Odds

Wolves are 6/4 to gain revenge for their defeat at Fulham in November, while the visitors are available to back at 9/5.

Four of Fulham’s five draws this season have come on the road and another stalemate is available at 12/5.

Over 2.5 goals is priced at 4/5, while punters can get 4/6 about both teams finding the net.

Another 3-2 Fulham win can be backed at 25/1, while Cottagers striker Muniz is favourite to score the first goal at 11/2.

Over 2.5 goals @ 4/5

Fulham’s victory at Old Trafford in their last away game was only their second on the road this season and their confidence should have been further boosted by last week’s 3-0 win over Brighton.

Just three of their last 16 league games have failed to generate at least three goals and plenty of action could be on the agenda at Molineux, where Wolves have lost just two of their last 11 league outings.

Gary O’Neil’s side have to pick themselves up from a 3-0 loss at Newcastle last week, but they should be confident they can create chances against a team who have kept just one clean sheet on the road this season.

Over 2.5 goals at 4-5

#PickYourPunt - Both teams to score, Rodrigo Muniz to score & Joao Palhinha to be carded @ 15/2 

The best starting point for a #PickYouPunt selection is to go with both teams to score, which has happened in nine of Wolves’ 13 home league matches this season.

An injury to former Wolves favourite Jimenez has allowed Brazilian Rodrigo Muniz to establish himself as Fulham’s chief goal threat and he can continue his fine recent record of five goals in his last five league appearances, so include him to score at any time.

Finally, the Cottagers welcome back Joao Palhinha from suspension after he accumulated 10 yellow cards. He looks likely to be in the thick of the action and an 11th caution of the campaign for the Portuguese midfielder could be worth chancing.
