Birmingham have been cooking with gas in recent times, winning 13 of their last 15 top-flight fixtures, including five in a row of late. As for Fulham, they have really struggled on the road of late, suffering six defeats in eight EFL Cup trips, one of which was a loss in this fixture.
Under 3.5 goals has been the order of the day in each of the previous 14 Birmingham home matches at the top table of the EFL Cup, as well as in 19 of their last 20 games on their own patch over the slightly longer term. As for Fulham, they have now been involved in 26 consecutive fixtures containing under 3.5 goals, so it would come as a surprise to see anything different.
When Fulham come calling in the EFL Cup, the net tends to bulge at both ends of the pitch, with this being the case in ten of the Fulham previous 12 away matches. Given that neither keeper has emerged with a clean sheet in 14 of the most recent 17 Birmingham home games in the league, it would come as a surprise were either team to draw a blank in this encounter.
Birmingham vs Fulham Prediction
Birmingham have featured 16 times at home in the EFL Cup during the current campaign, with under 3.5 goals being the order of the day in every single one of these fixtures. Given that this has also been the case in 14 of the 16 top-flight away matches played by Fulham this term, then any deviation from this script would come as a surprise.
