Leeds United vs Brentford
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 24th February 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Elland Road (Leeds).

It’s fair to say that Leeds United’s chances for top 6 are fading away. The team had a tremendous early part of the season even topped the table at some point but a drop of form similar to last season sees them at 11th place and 8 points gap.

Last round they produced one of the most entertaining games. The team took the lead twice at Derby County. The Rams were favourites, but had to rely on a last minute equalizer. Leeds played well but it may be a bit too late.

Brentford are currently a place above Leeds but with a 4 points advantage. The team looks stable winning against almost every lower placed side but has troubles in the big games.

Brentford picked up three points in the midweek when they hosted Birmingham in a one way traffic game. They scored twice in the first half going at half time with comfortable lead. After the break there still was just one team on the field and 3 more goals followed for a full time result of 5-0.
