Leeds United – Swansea, Championship Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LEEDS - SWANSEA
Leeds have had very poor results lately, but since the Championship dynamics are huge, they keep their positions and are only 2 points out of the 1st Norwich, so the battle for the top position continues. The only problem is that teams such as Sheffield United and West Bromwich catch up with them, even though WBA lost yesterday their home game to Forrest. However, Leeds played with Norwich and Boro in the last two rounds, and as hosts are strong, so it makes sense to return to the winning road.
Swansea has played quite offensive lately, and 5 of the last 6 away games have finished in the BTTS format. Swansea, however, are not the most impressive guest in terms of their games with the top teams as they defeated only Sheffield United, but it was still at the beginning of the season. It is very important to note that there are several key players who are out for Swansea in this game.
Leeds and Swansea have been scoring and conceding goals easily lately. Now Leeds are favorites, because they are hosts, and they are expected to return to the Premier League after a long pause. We must also note that in these duels the guest never won. Leeds scored at least 2 goals and defeated Swansea in all three home games against this rival so far in history. Yesterday all the favorites failed, and Norwich has a heavy Preston visit, so we expect Bielsa and his team to benefit. Prediction – Leeds – Over 1.5 goals at 1.70
- Leeds have scored at least 2 goals in 8 of their 9 wins as hosts in the league this season
