Leeds United vs Bristol City
English League Championship
Date: Tuesday, 14th February 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Elland Road, Leeds.
It was a weird afternoon for Leeds United fans on Saturday as they witnesses a shocking 0-2 defeat to Cardiff City which stopped the impressive six-win streak on home court for Gary Monk and his men. The loss held them in 5th position and they will still have a mountain to climb to secure the playoffs spots. It was generally the second win on the trot for the Peacocks and the potent6ial failure against Bristol City would fire the alarm bells.
If Leeds United had a strange afternoon, what should we then say for Bristol Coty? The Robins were three goals up producing one of the best performances since the start of the season against a promotional candidate Derby County on the road. However, Lee Johnson’s men have dramatic troubles with the consistency as they don’t seem able to hold on to the lead.
The Robins have a whole load of holes to be exploited at the back. These are especially notable on the road where the team had six straight losses before the mentioned draw with the Rams. The silver lining is the impressive form Chelsea’s loanee Tammy Abraham managed to find once again. The teenage striker thus scored his 8th goal in last eight matches with a brace from the iPro Stadium.

Leeds United vs Bristol City: Prediction
Even though the home win is far from being a banker, we simply have to go for it and take the 11/10 odds here. The main rationale is the fact Leeds are still in a serious contest for the promotional positions, they have been superb at Elland Road before the weekend’s loss to the Bluebirds. On the other hand, Bristol are only three points away from the red zone and their morale is also crushed after allowing Derby County a comeback from being three goals down.
