Leeds vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Along with the top position in the table, Leeds is one of the best home teams in the mix. With their home ground advantage, the host does have a chance to take all three points.

Besides that, Leeds have lost only one of their 12 home matches so far. Also, the Whites are unbeaten in the recent five attempts at home in the campaign.

Also, the Whites have fared better in the h2h clashes with the Owls, especially at home. So, we can expect the host to keep the opponents at bay in the match.

In the meantime, Sheffield Wednesday have been experiencing trouble in the middle when playing away from home.

Evidently, the Owls are winless in three of the previous five league away fixtures in their form. Also, they have six losses in their 13 away games so far.

Since their prior trip on the road also ended in a loss, we can expect the Owls to struggle at Elland Roads in the match against the table toppers.

Hence, Leeds have more chance of winning the game in ninety minutes. Also, there will probably be lesser goals in the match likely under 3.5 goals.
