Huddersfield vs Leeds Prediction
Huddersfield will be entering the local derby with a slight dip in form, followed by a massive 5-2 loss to Bristol City on the road. This loss has added up to the four-game winless trend in their overall form in the campaign.
Meanwhile, the host has performed well at home with an unbeaten streak of six home matches in the league. However, four of these six unbeaten games were draws. Hence, giving high hopes against Leeds is vain.
After the 4-0 win over Middlesbrough at home, Leeds had marked a five-game unbeaten run in the campaign. Also, three of those wins gave them clean sheets in the process.
Besides, Leeds has won back-to-back trips on the road lately. Along with that, they have won six of the last ten away fixtures in the championship games. Also, the guest has scored 15 goals in 10 games while conceding only six goals.
As such, based on overall performance and league standings, Leeds have better chance of registering a win despite lacking any home ground advantage.
Huddersfield’s last three home matches saw both teams scoring. And they are heavily reliant on Karlan Ahearne Grant who has scored half of their goals this season (11 championship goals).
Leeds also exhibit a stingy approach in scoring goals. Marcelo Bielsa’s men has recorded 13 of their previous 19 championship away games containing under 2.5 goals. It will be Patrick Bamford that the Whites will be rooting for to score with his three goals in last four appearances.
Given that both teams have experienced trouble in scoring, the chances of more than two goals is very low. Hence, we can expect a low scoring game, probably just over 1.5 goals in ninety minutes.
