Leeds vs Huddersfield: Match Preview and Prediction


Leeds vs Huddersfield
England – League Championship
Date: Saturday, 10 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Elland Road, Leeds.

Leeds United had made a disappointing start to their Championship campaign and their head-coach Gary Monk is already under considerable pressure with five matches into the new season. The Whites have lost three of their five matches so far and are currently 21st in the league table, one spot above the relegation zone.

On the other hand, Huddersfield Town have made a dream start to their season after remaining unbeaten in their five matches so far. They will start the match against Leeds, sitting at the top of the league table with 13 points earned from 4 wins and a draw. A 2-1 away win at Newcastle and a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa are high points in the early days of their season.

Leeds vs Huddersfield: Head-to-Head

Huddersfield Town won 4-1 at Leeds in the corresponding fixture of the 2015/16 season. While they lost their home fixture 3-0 to Leeds earlier that season. Also Leeds were on a 4 match winning run before their defeat in front of their home fans. This also includes two back-to-back wins at the home ground, 3-0 on September 2014 and 5-1 on February 2014.

The meetings between these two sides guarantee plenty of goals as the last 10 matches have seen over 2.5 goals, with both teams scoring in 8 of them.

Also there are no draws in the last eight meetings between Leeds and Huddersfield.

Leeds vs Huddersfield: Prediction

Huddersfield Town are under no pressure and have the momentum on their side. While Leeds are in all sorts of pressure and despite their good record over Huddersfield, they will go in to this match are underdogs. And I don’t think the home side has the confidence to overturn their bad run and will be backing the visitors to add win number five on Saturday.

The last 10 matches between the two sides have seen a higher number of goals and I expect the same here.
