Leeds United vs Ipswich Town
English League Championship
Date: Wednesday, 24th October 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Elland Road (Leeds).
Leeds United hosts Ipswich Town on Wednesday trying to stop their fall in the table.
Leeds is currently in a tough period. The team was topping the table at some points but now sits on 4th place. Still they are just 2 points away from the top and victory in this game may send them there. The problem is not the 2 point disadvantage but their game in recent weeks. Marcelo Bielsa’s team is finding it hard to score the same amount of goals they used to score before.
Last round they took another blow to their ambitions. The team lost to newly promoted Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park. Klich nullified Rovers’ lead just before half time. Leeds was supposed to take the second but it wasn’t meant to be. Lenihan scored after 70minutes and gave his team important 3 points at Leeds expense.
What can we say about Ipswich this year? The team sits at the bottom of the table with just a single victory at its name which came 2 rounds ago surprisingly against Swansea at Liberty Stadium. Ipswich has one of the lowest scoring attacks in the league and that may not only cost them a lot of points but also their place for the next season.
Ipswich suffered yet another disappointment in Saturday. Their fans hoped for a positive outcome at home against Queens Park Rangers but they were disappointed once again. Two goals down in the first half and the game was already over before the break. The Tractor boys looked faithless in the second and just settled for the defeat.
Leeds United vs Ipswich Town Head-to-head
- Leeds is winless in 2 games at home
- Leeds has just 1 victory in their last 5 games

Leeds United vs Ipswich Town Predictions
Leeds has no more room for mistakes. The team cannot afford to lose points to the bottom placed team and hope for playoffs. Ipswich apart from their victory over Swansea are not playing well on the road. This looks like a safe bet on the home victory while doing it with a clean sheet may also come true.
