Cardiff City vs Leeds United
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 21 June 2020
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Cardiff City Stadium.
The Whites under Marcelo Bielsa have been a sight to watch the past few game weeks. They had missed out on a ticket to the Premier League by the tiniest of margins in the playoffs the last season.
As such, they are determined to not leave anything for chance, and have secured a spot at the top-most of the table. With just nine match-days remaining in the season, they need to make sure that they end up in the first two spots.
Meanwhile, the Bluebirds have been struggling to put forth a good performance for the last several games. It goes without saying that they are massive underdogs against the potential champions of the competition.
By all means, expect a win from Leeds this Sunday.

Cardiff vs Leeds: Prediction
The Bluebirds recorded a 0-2 win on the road the last match-day, against Barnsley. Despite the hosts being the worst team in the competition, it took the guests more than an hour to slot in the first goal.
However, sixty seconds later they had fired in the second goal as well, and then held the scoreline till the end of the game.
In the meantime, the Whites recorded a 2-0 win at home the past match-day, against Huddersfield. The home team scored a goal apiece in either half, and defended well throughout to protect the slender lead as well.
As things stand, the Whites are massive favorites for the day. They are the toppers of the table, and they have so far conceded the least number of goals.
They are also the only team to record more than 20 wins (21), and most importantly, are on a five-game winning run. Impressively, the team have not conceded a single goal in any of these fixtures as well.
On the road, their combined scoreline for the prior two match-ups is 0-5, in their favor. On the other hand, the Bluebirds were winless in four of their previous five overall fixtures, and they had failed to score in two of their former four match-ups.
And at home, they were winless in nine of their last ten appearances, and they have conceded two or more goals in three of their past four games here.
Taking into account all these stats, it’s more than clear that Leeds are about to deliver a massive win this Sunday.
