Leeds United and Barnsley square off in a tasty all-Yorkshire EFL Cup tie at Elland Road this Wednesday. Jesse Marsch’s men have made a stunning start to their Premier League campaign and will be looking for an easy midweek home win in the cup. United should be too strong for the EFL League One Tykes on home turf. Read below for the latest odds and best predictions.

Leeds United Preview – Whites’ impressive start to continue in cup?

Jesse Marsch’s Leeds United lost some massive players over the summer, but the West Yorkshire club have made a sensational start to their season. Ahead of the weekend’s match with Brighton & Hove Albion, United are sitting pretty in joint second in the top tier.

Leeds edged past Wolverhampton Wanderers in game one but squandered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Southampton on matchday two. They were outstanding against Chelsea at Elland Road last Sunday, as goals from Brenden Aaronson, Rodrigo and Jack Harrison gave Leeds a deserved 3-0 win over the current FIFA Club World Cup champions.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1319 GMT, Tuesday 23 August)

Leeds have bigger fish to fry in terms of the Premier League, but Marsch will want to see his side keep up their excellent form with a win in the cup in midweek. As expected, the hosts are the strong favourites to book their place in the next round.

Barnsley Preview – Tykes to come up short at Elland Road?

Barnsley’s main aim will be promotion this term after suffering a gut-wrenching relegation from the EFL Championship last season. The Tykes have made an indifferent start, winning two and losing three of their opening five.

After an impressive 3-0 home success over Bristol Rovers, Barnsley were beaten by the same scoreline at Oakwell by Wycombe Wanderers in their last one. They have also lost to Plymouth Argyle and Derby County in the league. They did manage to get the better of Championship Middlesbrough in the previous round of the cup, though.
