Leeds United Prediction

Leeds United returned to the top of the Championship with a hard fought 3-2 win away at Aston Villa despite finding themselves 2-0 down. Leeds showed a renewed resilience and character to emerge from a tough clash with all three points and they’ll now head into their Boxing Day encounter against Blackburn Rovers full of confidence.

Leeds are currently on a high after collecting a sixth win on the trot as the hosts have recorded league wins against Bristol City, Reading, Sheffield United, QPR, Bolton Wanderers and Aston Villa, while also possessing a strong record at Elland Road.

Leeds have a solid home record of 7-3-1 18/6 and have won four of their last five on home turf, with only Birmingham City managing to take all three points against them at Elland Road so far this season.

Forward Roofe (11 goals) along with midfielders Hernandez (7 goals) and Klich (5 goals) are the ones to watch for the hosts here.

Blackburn Rovers Prediction

Blackburn Rovers were handed a 1-0 defeat at home to Norwich City on the weekend and now face a very tough trip to in-form and high-flying Leeds United having registered just one win from their last seven matches overall.

Tony Mowbray’s side recorded a 4-2 home win over Sheffield Wednesday at Ewood Park but recent defeats to Preston North End, Wigan Athletic and Norwich City have prevented Rovers from gaining ground on the play-off pack in recent weeks.

Rovers now occupy 14th place in the Championship, and with a rather ordinary away record that stands at 3-4-4 13/20 which includes no wins from their last five on the road, the visitors’ task looks a very tough one indeed.

Betting Tips Verdict

Leeds are flying at the moment and the manner of their victory over Aston Villa would have boosted their confidence even higher. Blackburn’s poor away results in recent weeks should end in a home win here for Leeds.
