Leeds have only been beaten once at Elland Road this season. Since losing to Swansea City back in August, the Whites have taken 13 points from a possible 15. Bielsa’s side have won their previous four on their own patch, beating West Brom, Birmingham City, Queens Park Rangers and Blackburn Rovers.

Leeds have won four on the spin, seeing off Reading at the Madejski Stadium in their last one. It was a tight game in Berkshire, but Jack Harrison’s late goal gave United a priceless 1-0 win. Will the Yorkshire side pick up another precious three points at the weekend?

Key-Facts – Leeds United vs Middlesbrough

  • United have won their last four and are unbeaten in seven
  • No side have picked up more Championship wins than Leeds this term
  • Boro have yet to win away from home under Woodgate

 

Middlesbrough News and Form – Can the Tykes pick up first away win?

It’s been a tough start for Jonathan Woodgate as Middlesbrough boss, as their former captain has guided the club to just three Championship wins so far. However, one of those victories came in midweek, as Boro beat Barnsley 1-0 at the Riverside Stadium in a huge relegation six-pointer.

Middlesbrough languish down in 20th place having taken just 17 points from an available 54. Boro are one of four teams yet to win away from home in the Championship this season. So far, Woodgate’s troops have drawn four and lost four of eight.

Boro will be desperate to avoid defeat and kick on from Wednesday’s crucial victory over the Tykes. However, a trip to Elland Road is a tough as they come in the Championship.

Leeds United vs Middlesbrough Predictions

Leeds United win: The Whites are hunting down West Brom at the top, so Bielsa and his side will be gunning for all three points from Saturday’s clash with Middlesbrough. Boro finished seventh last season, but they have struggled to get going this time around. Despite beating Barnsley in midweek, Middlesbrough are the huge 11/1 underdogs in this one.

Leeds have shipped just four home goals this season, which is the fewest in the league. Also, United have won without conceding on nine occasions across all competitions. I’m backing the home side to win to nil on Saturday, which you can get at 21/20.

Ex-Middlesbrough striker Patrick Bamford has scored two in his last three after going ten games without a goal. The 26-year-old has been prolific at this level over the years, and Bamford is the 10/11 favourite to score anytime against his former club this weekend.
