Leeds vs Blackburn Prediction
The hosts are easily the best team in the entire competition. They have already acquired a six-point cushion to be directly promoted to the Premier League next season, and a 13-point safety net to ensure participation in the playoffs. They are right now in a great form and has won the last five league matches in a row, and remained unbeaten in the last ten games.
No other team has a better home record than Leeds, and they are sure to win this game and take the three points from this tie. Leeds will not want to tinker with the comfort of the safety cushion at the top of the table that they have laid for themselves.
Most of Leeds’s goals come in the second half. To be precise, they found the target in their last eight attempts at home, in a row. On the other hand, Blackburn concedes a lot in the late stages of the game. Six of their last eight away matches and their last six overall ties consecutively saw their defense being breached in the latter half of the game. Expect a goal by Leeds in the second half.
