BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION

Leeds vs

It’s Leeds vs West Brom on Sunday afternoon at Elland Road, with the hosts potentially moving up two places in the league if results go their way. 

LEEDS

Leeds United are in great form coming to the end of the season, with three wins in their last three games. They beat Southampton in their last game 2-0, to guarantee a top-half finish this season.

Bielsa’s side are currently 10th, two points behind Arsenal and three behind Everton. If the two above them were to lose and Leeds won, they would go into eighth place. This would be a fantastic first season back and higher than anyone would have expected.

Against West Brom, Leeds needs to play the only way they know and that’s attacking football. They will fancy getting a win over last year’s rivals in the Championship and with the goalscoring form they are in, we fancy them too!

WEST BROM

The Baggies have no win in their last six games and have been beaten in their last three. West Ham beat them 3-1 at the Hawthorns in midweek, which was to be Sam Allardyce’s last home game in charge.

The visitors are 19th in the table and heading back down to the Championship after just one season in the Premier League. A win though could take them to 18th, so there is still something to play for.

West Brom’s weak point this season has been scoring goals. However, they have scored in each of their last five games and will feel like they can carry this on against Leeds. They set up well defensively and will need to against an attacking team like Leeds.

Team News

Leeds United are without Costa and Forshaw who are both injured. Koch is a doubt.

Snodgrass and Ivanovic are both out for West Brom.

Match Prediction

The two sides from the Championship are having different seasons for a reason. We are backing Leeds to get a win and put pressure on the sides aboves.

Odds 4/9
