Leeds United vs Charlton Athletic
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 22 July 2020
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Elland Road (Leeds)
Marcelo Bielsa’s men are busy celebrating their title win and return to the Premier League. There has been no other team as dominant as the Whites this season. But they will be aiming to finish the season on a high especially in front of their home crowd.
Charlton’s survival hopes are hanging by the thread as they face the Champions. Currently, both Charlton and Luton are equal to 48 points. If the visitors lose this one and the hatters manage to win or even draw their remaining match, Charlton will be in League One next season. At present, the chances of them defeating Leeds is really thin.
Leeds vs Charlton: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Red Robins are on a six-match unbeaten run against Leeds United.
- The last time the Whites won this fixture was back in November of 2013.
- Both sides found the back of the net in five of their last eight meetings.
- In all those five matches the final score had more than 2.5 goals in total.
- Leeds United is on a five-match winning streak in the league.
- Charlton is winless in their last six league games.
Leeds vs Charlton: Prediction
The visitors have a clear advantage over the Champions. They have never been beaten by Leeds in over 7 years. But Leeds was never stronger than they are now. Especially at home, they are close to invincible. It is true that the three points in the reverse fixture were bagged by the Red Robins. But currently, they have no wins in six consecutive league fixtures. So I am backing the hosts to win this upcoming tie.
The toppers have conceded the least number of goals this season. Apart from Leeds and Brentford, every other side has given away more than 40 goals. The home side has conceded very few goals in home games with 14 goals given away in 22 matches which is yet another league-best. So I do not think the visiting attack has enough power to break the home defense on Wednesday. So we can expect only one team to get the goals in this matchup.
