Leeds United News and Form – Whites to extend unbeaten home record?

Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United are top of the Championship table after 26 games. The Whites have won 15, drawn seven and lost four so far. After missing out on promotion to the Premier League in the play-offs last term, Leeds will be targeting a top two finish this time around.

Since losing to Millwall at The Den way back in early October, Leeds have been beaten just once in the Championship. Having said that, United have won only one of their past five in the league.

Bielsa’s men have been very strong on their own patch this season. Only Preston North End, Fulham and Derby County – who have all played more – have taken more home points so far. However, since winning six on the spin, Leeds have drawn their last two on home turf.

Sheffield Wednesday News and Form – Can the Owls get back on track?

Garry Monk’s Sheffield Wednesday head to Elland Road having lost each of their last in the Championship. The Owls were third not so long ago, but the Sheffield club now find themselves in eighth position.

However, Sheffield Wednesday did secure an impressive 1-0 win over Premier League Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup last weekend. Monk will be eager for his side to build on that excellent cup victory by turning their fortunes around in the Championship.

Wednesday have been pretty solid on the road of late, winning at Charlton Athletic, Nottingham Forest and Brighton over the past month. Can the side from the Steel City become only the second team this season to win at Elland Road in the Championship?

Leeds United vs Sheffield Wednesday Predictions

Leeds United win: Wednesday have had a tough last few seasons in the Championship. Nonetheless, the Owls have put themselves in a great position to make the play-offs this term, though three defeats in a row has halted their momentum.

Leeds will be gunning for automatic promotion. United have had several years of hurt but will Bielsa be the man to take them back to the big time? At the time of writing, the Whites are a whopping nine points above third place.

Leeds are incredibly hard to beat at Elland Road under Bielsa, and the leaders should chalk up another home victory on Saturday. Put some money on Leeds to win at 4/7. The West Yorkshire outfit have won without conceding on 11 occasions in the Championship this season. The hosts are priced at 8/5 to win to nil on Saturday.
