Wolves vs Leeds
FRI 18 FEB 2021 – KO 20:00
BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Friday night, Wolves and Leeds go head-to-head at Molineux in the Premier League, as the home side look to keep up the recent form.
The home side are not enjoying the best of seasons after two highly respectable top-flight campaigns. However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s team unbeaten in three and beat Southampton in the last game 2-1.
Wolves have struggled without Raul Jiminez in their team and would love new striker Willian Jose to get off the mark with a goal Friday. They have looked better going forward recently and aren’t conceding as many either.
The game against Leeds is one that Wolves will get chances in due to the way the opposition play. Wolves defended well last week against Southampton but just needed to be more clinical. Leeds will press them high so they will need to be switched on at the back.
Bielsa’s side goes to the Molyneux off the back of a 4-2 loss to Arsenal. This was a typical Leeds performance in which whatever side is more clinical would come away with the win as their games are full of chances.
Leeds would love a top-half finish this season and it is still possible. They are 11th as it stands but if they win their game in hand, they’ll go tenth.
Against Wolves, it is never an easy game. They have a good squad and are now starting to find their form. Leeds though will look to get the ball into Raphina and Bamford who are both in form and will fancy their chances.
Wolves will continue to be without striker Raul Jimenez, who has a long-term injury. Podence and Boly also join him on the injury list.
Klich and Phillips are doubts for Friday’s game. Poveda, Moreno, Llorente, Koch, Forshaw and Beradi are all out.
