Crawley vs Leeds United
England – FA Cup
Date: Sunday, 10 January 2021
13:30 UK/ 14:30 CET
Venue: The People’s Pension Stadium.
The Peacocks are one of the most impressive teams in the English top flight, and they have been in furious chase all this season to ensure a European spot.
Under Marcelo Bielsa, they have been one of the best offensive teams in the league. In fact, barring the the top-three teams in PL and Chelsea, no other squad has outscored the Peacocks in 2020-21.
This is also their first season in the top flight in 16 years, and they surely will want to make it a memorable one.
So far they have delivered some great fixtures in the Premier League, and they certainly would want to carry forward this run into the FA Cup.
Moreover, with competition getting intense for the European spots, Bielsa’s men could use a break, and lock horns with a weaker opponent for a change. Moreover, they also could benefit from a huge win this weekend.
And sure enough, they are pitted against a rival from the League Two – the fourth rung in the English football hierarchy. On top of that, John Yems’s men are also going through a troubling spell at home at the moment.
Taking into account these observations, expect Leeds to emerge victorious this Sunday.
Crawley vs Leeds: Head-to-head (h2h)
- These two teams have not locked horns with each other so far.
Crawley vs Leeds Prediction
Yems’s men are from the fourth tier in English football system, and they were also winless in nine of their previous fifteen overall match-ups. They had also remained so in four of their former five home appearances, and failed to keep clean sheets in all of these fixtures.
On the other hand, their opposite number are one of the most dangerous sides to take on in the English top flight, and they also are determined to post a huge win.
For the reasons, expect Leeds to post a commendable win this weekend at the The People’s Pension Stadium.
