Leeds vs Aston Villa
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 2 October 2022
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Elland Road.
Leeds started this new season on an impressive note, but lately they had a tough schedule to deal with, and as such they dropped some points. However, this upcoming encounter is an opportunity, as they are pitted against the struggling Aston Villa, who are on a poor stretch of performances overall, and particularly on the road.
Villa so far registered just two wins, and only three teams scored fewer goals than them in the entire campaign.
And worryingly they have a 100% losing record on the road, and they let in two or more goals in every single one of these games.
It goes without saying that they are under extreme pressure, and this will only lead them to making even more mistakes.
Meanwhile, Leeds lost just twice all through this current campaign, and both losses came against two in-form teams.
They also consistently found the back of the net throughout the duration of the campaign, and most importantly, they have a 100% unbeaten record at home.
In fact, they have a 100% winning record at this venue, disregarding a single draw. Note that they also scored two or more goals in all but one home fixture.
On top of that, they also fared quite well in past h2h clashes over the years, and particularly so at this venue.
By the looks of things, expect a victory for Leeds this Sunday at their home.
