Derby opened up the season with a dramatic victory. The team was losing against Reading but Frank Lampard’s boys managed to make a complete turnaround and get all the points. The late strike from Lawrence literally exploded the stadium, staff, players and fans.

Derby lost a few key figures in the summer but the team still looks sharp. Lampard looks to have motivated his squad which showed a lot of determination. The team didn’t have the best of games but these mental qualities decided the outcome.

Leeds started their season with a bang. Marcelo Bielsa saw his side demolish recently relegated Stoke City with 3-1. The team played well in all areas of the pitch and never looked like losing.

Leeds showed at the beginning of last season that they can play well. They are showing it again this year. The most important thing this time is to keep the good performances going. The squad is ready and has an outstanding coach in the face of Bielsa.

Derby County vs Leeds United Predictions

This game is a tough one to call. Both sides have strong and organized squads with good amount of quality. The potential up front is there and we can see goals at both ends.

Derby plays a bit more cautious but since Leeds is likely to go for goals the game may open up.

In terms of final outcome the experience of Marcelo Bielsa may help Leeds get a result over Frank Lampard’s determination.
