Semi-final betting special

Thursday 11 April 2002

Fulham were unlucky to leave Tyneside with just one point on Monday, such was their dominance over Newcastle, but the performance should certainly boost their confidence ahead of the FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea. And to celebrate this eagerly awaited Cup clash, Fulham Bet are offering new registrants yet another generous promotion.

All you need to do is register, place a £5 bet on the all-London semi-final and if Marlet or Saha score during the game, they will give you £20!*

Judging by his performance at St James' Park, Louis Saha looks to have come into some good form at the perfect time. He was a constant threat to the Magpies defence, forcing Shay Given into two fine saves, and also had luck on his side when grabbing the equaliser in the second half. If he plays like that on Sunday, he will more than deserve another goal. Saha is 7/1 to score the first match goal.

A £10 bet on Saha to score first would win you £70 (plus an extra £20 from the promotion!*)

While Fulham's preparation for the semi-final went well, Chelsea's was far from inspiring. Held to a 0-0 draw at Blackburn, the game underlined their unpredictability and vulnerability. They may not have lost to the Cottagers this season, but nor have they outclassed them. Sunday could well be the day when Fulham get a deserved victory against their West-London rivals, priced at 7/2.

A £10 bet on a Fulham victory would win you £35

Gudjohnsen and Hasselbaink will be the biggest threat to Fulham's FA Cup dream, but Gianfranco Zola could have a nominal impact. In fact the 'Chelsea Pensioner' is 4/1 to fail to score and be substituted!

A £10 bet with Fulham Bet would win you £40.

And now for the perfect double....

Fulham to win 7/2
QPR to lose 5/4

A £10 bet with Fulham Bet would win you £91.25
