Leeds United vs Hull City Prediction
Leeds further extended their positive form in the second division by picking up a comfortable 2-0 win over Huddersfield on the road last week. The hosts have now admitted defeat just once in their past ten games, and have dropped points just thrice in the process as well.
It is also worth mentioning that the home side have not been at the losing end in any of their last six fixtures on the trot. With forty-three points at hand, Leeds are now breathing down West Brom’s neck for the top spot.
Meanwhile, Hull will be making the trip to Elland Road on the back of a narrow 2-1 win over Stoke at home. Despite trailing at the break, in that latter matchup, a brace from Jarrod Bowen, post the restart, helped Hull secure all three points.
Be that as it may, the visitors are without a taste of success in their past two outings. They have also come out on top just thrice in their last nine as well.
In sharp contrast, Leeds are on a five-match winning streak at home. Taking into account that Hull have also posted a victory just twice in their past nine visits here, Leeds should be making no mistake in coming away with the bragging rights in this one.
Furthermore, the hosts been consistent in scoring two goals or more in each of their previous three matchups here. They have also amassed eight goals from the aforementioned clashes alone.
On the other hand, Hull’s front line have not disappointed either, and have found the back of the net fourteen times from their trips on the road so far.
Considering that four out of their last six h2h meetings here have also featured over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards, count on nothing short of a high scoring affair to unfold when the two sides lock horns this week.
