Leeds vs Fulham
England – League Championship.
Date: Tuesday, 16 August, 2016
Kick-off: 19:45 UK.
Venue: Elland Road (Leeds).
Leeds have made a disastrous start to the season after tasting defeat in each of their opening two Championship games. After the 13th placed finish in the league last season, Gary Monk is installed as the new manager. With just two matches into the season, the former Swansea man is already feeling the pressure from the demanding fans and the ambitious chairman. But a couple of good results help to boost the overall morale of everyone associated.
Fulham can’t hope for a better start to their season after earning back-to-back wins. The surprised a strong Newcastle United in the opening day and this was followed by a 2-1 win in a difficult away fixture at Preston North End. Slavisa Jokanovic, who previously guided Watford to the Premier League by finishing second in the 2014/15 Championship will be hoping eyeing a similar run with his new club.
Leeds vs Fulham: Head-to-Head Statistics
It is hard to separate the two teams looking at the head-to-head statistics. Out of the 20 matches between them, Leeds and Fulham share 7 wins each, while 6 matches were draws.
While playing at home against Fulham, Leeds have won 4, drawn 2 and lost 4. Even the record while playing at Fulham is also in the balance, as both teams share 3 wins each from 10 matches, with 4 out of them being draws.
Each of the two match in the last season’s Championship between these two sides finished in 1-1 draws.
Leeds vs Fulham: Prediction
Leeds must be desperate to get their first win of the season after tasting defeats in their first two. And it looks like a very difficult as Fulham are coming on the back of two massive results and the confidence in the playing camp will be high.
But most of the matches between these two sides were pretty open and the same can be expected on Tuesday. But I could see goals on both ends and on the basis of current form a double chance for Fulham seems like a good bet.
Leeds vs Fulham: Tips
- Over 2.5 goals @ 2.00.
- Double Chance Fulham/Draw @ 1.48
