BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION

Leeds vs

It’s Leeds vs Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon at Elland Road, with the hosts still looking to break into the top ten. 

LEEDS

Leeds United are unbeaten in their last two games, having beaten Fulham 2-1 before going into the international break. Patrick Bamford was back amongst the goals and will be looking to kick on towards the end of the season.

A top-half finish would be a great first season back in the Premier League for Bielsa’s side. However, Bielsa won’t change his style of play for this and will still go all out to win each game, no matter who they come up against.

Against this current Sheffield United side, Leeds are going to get chances. Raphina has been in good form of late and we expect him to have a big influence on this game. Leeds will be looking to get something here against the leagues bottom side. 

SHEFFIELD UNITED

The Blades last game was against Leicester, which saw them pick up their 23rd loss of the season. They were beaten 5-0, in a game that could have ended a much higher scoreline, given the performance of Sheffield United.

Sheffield United parted ways with Chris Wilder before the game against Leicester. They have accepted they will be playing in the Championship next season and now it is a matter of pride.

They will set up in a 352 formation as they have done all season and look to soak up pressure. It hasn’t worked for them this season but they seem to stick with it. Leeds tend to send a lot of men forward, leaving them exposed at the back. Ollie Burke may be the man they look to play through with his pace and the fact there will be space.

Team News

Leeds United are without Klich and Forshaw, whilst Cooper, Hernandez, Bamford, Moreno and Davis are doubts.

Egan, Berge and O’Connell are still all out. Rodwell, Robinson, Basham, Stevens and Sharp are doubtful.

Match Prediction

This will be a close game as Sheffield United have nothing to lose. However, Leeds are 25 points ahead for a reason and we see them winning this one.

Odds 8/15
