The white team could not beat the blue institution in the regular 90 minutes, but it became strong in the half hour of the extension.
With the promotions of Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion to the Premier League, the third place was yet to be confirmed and claimed Fulham, who defeated Brentford 2-0 in overtime.
The Whites came to this meeting with a great scoring quota, which they could not show and were uncomfortable from the start, without being able to generate too many occasions.
In the second half, Brentford was better with possession of the ball and some sporadic attacks, but also failed to harm his rival and things dragged on until overtime.
With tired legs, the 30 more minutes that were played were without much emotion, but a distant free kick by Joe Bryan and the help of goalkeeper David Raya and his location error, gave the Cottagers the goal in the closing of the first 15 minutes of extension.
At 118 ‘, Bryan himself was the author of the second goal of the white team after a good collective move with Mitrovic, which culminated with the young Englishman defining before the departure of the Brentford goalkeeper. The Blues discounted by head through Dalsgaard at 124 ‘, but there was not enough time for more.
Thus, Fulham returns to the Premier League after spending a season in the Championship for finishing nineteenth in the 2018-19 season in the top flight.
