Leeds United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 7 March 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Elland Road (Leeds).
Wolverhampton Wanderers have been steaming their way towards the first place finish, but they ran into sort of a crisis amid a tough schedule over the last couple of weeks. The Wolves have claimed only two points in last three league outings and they will be looking to return on the winning ways on Wednesday evening when they are about to close the mid.-week’s Matchday with the derby against Leeds United at Elland Road.
The Peacocks have been challenging the promotional playoffs spots ever since the start of the season, but their form has already seen way too many slumps so far. They sit 12th ahead of the clash with the runaway leaders and they will be massive underdogs here after a tough 3-0 loss to Middlesbrough on Friday at Riverside.
Moreover, Paul Heckingbottom’s men have only won one of last five matches at Elland Road showing plenty of holes at the back in the process. These holes will certainly be heavily exploited by the league’s best attacking line which has bagged 59 goals so far in the season. Nuno Espirito Santo has a deadly lineup of strikers led by Leo Bonatini and Diogo Jota who have packed 12 goals each so far in the campaign.
Leeds United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers: Head-to-head
Leeds United lead the head to head tie by a single win coming into 73rd encounter with the Wolves.
The Peacocks have been much more successful in clashes at Elland Road where they’ve won 20 and lost only 9 of 36 meetings.
Wolverhampton have taken a demolishing 4-1 victory when the teams locked horns in November last year at Molineux.
Leeds United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers: Prediction
Leeds United have lacked consistency throughout the entire season and we can hardly see them get the result here against the table-toppers.
Wolves are worth backing to win at 2.05, while we will alternatively take the visitors to net two or more goals at the odds of 2.20.
