Birmingham vs Leeds
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 6th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: St. Andrew’s Stadium (Birmingham).
Leeds is finding it hard to deal with the menacing form of Norwich in the title race. Despite the other-worldly performances of the former, Norwich holds a healthy five-point lead at the top, with seven match-days remaining. Leeds will be intent to give it all they have till the end, and in the meantime, keep at bay, Sheffield United, who is hell-bent on replacing them at the last direct-promotion spot to the Premier League.
Birmingham has lost their will to fight after their points-deduction and lost the last five league games in a row. They can’t keep on with this charade though, as the relegation line is fast catching up. But since their next set of visitors are Leeds, no one would fault them for procrastinating.

Birmingham vs Leeds Prediction
Leeds is a potential league champion and impending representative to the Premier League. They hold the second spot in the league table as of now and is giving a valiant chase behind Norwich for the Championship crown. On the other hand, Birmingham was given a nine-point deduction by the federation, and since then, have been giving extremely low-key performances. As of now, they are on a losing streak of five games in the league. Moreover, three of the last four h2h wins went to Leeds, and in the last five years, Birmingham has recorded only one home h2h win.
Expect a win for the top-tier team.
Going on, Leeds would not allow Birmingham to gain the upper hand by conceding in the first half itself. Also, the latter failed to score in four of their last five games, and in three of their last four at home. In addition, Leeds kept three clean sheets in their last five matches, and in their last two on the road. Expect them to repeat the feat for at least the first 45 minutes of the game this Saturday.
