Leeds United vs Brentford
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Elland Road (Leeds).
Leeds United prepares to face Brentford in another fight near the top of the table. The hosts are having a vicious battle at the top with Middlesbrough and West Brom and any more slip ups may give their opponents an edge.
Leeds slowed their pace a bit following their tremendous opening games. The other teams are probably getting to know Marcelo Biesa’s style of play and it gets increasingly difficult for his team to score.
Leeds have scored exactly 1 goal each of their last 3 games which is a huge decline since their opening games. This was also evident midweek against Hull. United got away with a minimal victory as Tyler Roberts scored in the opening minutes of the second half but everyone around the club knows that there should be some changes whether in the style of play, in the starting line up or some added motivation.
Brentford are dealing with their first slump of form for this campaign. The team still finds itself in the top 6 but just their goal difference is keeping them there and things may change rather quickly.
They are having troubles of late against lower placed teams and it is hard to understand why their game dropped. In the midweek fixture they drew at home against Birmingham 1-1 which was a little bit of disappointment for their fans.
Leeds vs Brentford: Head-to-head
- Leeds have scored exactly 1 goal in their last 3 fixtures
- Leeds have just 2 victories in their last 7 games
- Brentford is winless in 5 games
- Brentford have found the net in all of their last 8 games

Leeds vs Brentford: Predictions
Leeds may have some decline in their attacking prowess but the team still manages to score some goals. At home against Brentford side this may again be the case. The visitors are not in a good shape currently which makes the home side a bit of favourites in a game which should offer some goals.
