Fulham cruised to a 3-0 home success against NSI Runavik in the first leg of the pair’s Europa League qualifying tie and they should also beat the Faroe Islands minnows in the second leg too, in what boss Martin Jol will treat as a friendly with a slightly competitive edge.
Given the quality of opposition, it’s not surprising to see the Cottagers priced at just 1/12 by William Hill to get the job done with another victory while Bwin rate the hosts at 22/1 to chalk up a shock win.
However, it should be one-way traffic from the perspective of Fulham, who are 9/20 courtesy of Partybets to lead at both the interval and the final whistle and 5/6 (Paddy Power) to prevail by at least two clear goals.
Paddy Power meanwhile, post 4/7 against another Cottagers triumph ‘to nil’ and Jol’s charges are quoted by to again notch three times without reply. Both bets stand a great chance of success but there could be come mileage in speculating on the time of the first goal.
NSI Runavik set their stall out to restrict Fulham in West London and held out until the 33rd minute and they will try to keep things tight at home too. Subsequently, the Cottagers might again have to wait to make the breakthrough so a case can be made for Paddy Power’s 5/6, marked against the opener arriving after the 19th minute.
