Maybe the Federation isn’t done with humiliating Ipswich enough. They are dead-last in the table, and officially is the worst team in the competition. They are already relegated, and still, on their final match-day, they have to take on one of the best teams in the Championship, Leeds.
Just imagine, just imagine Leeds losing against Ipswich, and then entering the playoffs. They would be the laughing stock of the country. Moreover, the team will consider this tie as a final warm-up game before the proceedings to determine the promotion to Premier League begins.
It’s paramount that Leeds go into the post-season with momentum and belief. And for that, a great showing in this tie is mandatory.

Ipswich vs Leeds Prediction
Leeds is one of the best teams in the competition, and they have already qualified for the playoffs. They have a shot to make it to the Premier League, and since they need to go into those fixtures on a good frame of mind, the team will target a huge win here.
It helps that Ipswich is the worst team in the Championship. They are the bottom-most team in the table and is the only one yet to touch the 30-point mark, and one of the only two yet to touch the 40-point mark. They were also winless in 44 of their last 48 matches, and in 21 of their last 23 at home.
Frankly, this is one of those games, that you could make some easy money. A relegated team against a team fighting to make it to the Premier League, at the end of an exhausting and mind-draining campaign. It’s really no question about who would win.
