Leeds continue in second spot but only on goal difference and have to get back to winning ways here in order to boost their promotion hopes. Bristol City can go level on points with their opponents if they pick up a win at Elland Road.

Leeds United Preview – Can Leeds pick up just their second win in seven matches to stay in the automatic promotion places?

It wasn’t long ago Leeds had a 10 points lead and were topping the league. That looks like a distant memory now, however, as Marcelo Bielsa’s men sit second level on points with Fulham  in this and only three points clear of seventh placed Bristol City, whom they face tomorrow. It’s due to a poor run of form which has seen them pick up only one win in their last six games and taking four points from a possible 18.
The doubts are once again beginning to creep in that the way in which Bielsa plays does not lend itself to a 46-match Championship season.
Our betting prediction:
Leeds 2-0 Correct Score
13/2

Whilst results have been poor of late performances, in the main, have been very good still. Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Brentford was a game which Leeds dominated and should have taken all three points from. Unfortunately, that’s a statement that has been made all too often about this team.

We know Bielsa will not deviate from his philosophy and it’s easy to see why. Despite being a huge name in this league it’s not a squad backed with huge resources or expensively put together. They’re in contention due to the brilliance of Bielsa.

Bristol City Preview – Will City get a sixth win in seven games to go level on points with opponents?

One of the beneficiaries of Leeds’ stuttering form is Lee Johnson’s Bristol City. It looked unlikely at the turn of the year that City would be in contention for automatic promotion but they have went on a great run of form by winning six of their last seven in the league. It’s an indication of just how competitive this division is this season that it’s not even good enough to get them in the top six, however.

Considering Bristol City began this year with a heavy 4-0 defeat at home to Brentford it’s a pretty remarkable run of form since.

The attitude of this Bristol City squad is something that’s difficult to question. Defeats and setbacks are part and parcel of this league but the top teams are able to respond. Johnson’s men done that by winning five of their next six after defeat to Brentford and looking to do the same having lost at home to Birmingham last weekend.

A 3-2 win at home to Derby next time out is – what they all hope – the start of another impressive run which takes them not only into the playoffs but potentially into the top two and automatic promotion.

Leeds United vs Bristol City Betting Advice

It’s a really exciting clash in prospect at Elland Road tomorrow. Leeds are still seen as being the best footballing team in the league and despite their recent struggles they are in pole position to join West Brom in the Premier League next season. Bristol City are one of the up and coming improving sides in the league and have shown how capable they are in recent weeks.

Key Facts – Leeds United vs Bristol City Betting Tip

  • Leeds’ results have been desperate of late picking up just four points from a possible 18
  • Bristol City have been excellent in recent weeks and looking for their third straight away win
  • Leeds were far too good for Bristol City on the opening day of the season, winning 3-1

 

Bristol City were no match for Leeds on the opening day of the season and despite the circumstances I fancy them to show their class once again tomorrow. Bristol City have tightened up of late on their travels (five of their last six away games going under 2.5 goals) which when combined with Leeds’ record of 11 out their 15 home games also containing two or less goals suggest a Leeds win to nil is worth a bet.
