Leeds vs Swansea
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 13th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK / 20.45 CET
Venue: Elland Road (Leeds).
The Swans are not doing enough to stay alive and fight for the top 6, as they are sitting 6 points outside the playoffs. The Jacks always try to play more of a short passing style of game and move with the ball through the midfield.
The defense has not stood that tall in this season, as they conceded 37 goals. The opposition always uses the gap between the midfield and defense for their advantage, as it has let the defense to concede more goals.
The recent form has been so worrying for the Whites, as they lost 5 games in the last 10 games. It has dented their chances to finish at the top of the league, as they slipped to the second spot. A win for Marcelo Bielsa’s men will be huge for their title race and ambitions.
Leeds just lost 2 games in their last six matches at their home. They recorded 60% of ball possession and 15.9 shot per game in every match they play. It shows how dominant the home team and their style of play are. The Whites are one of the tough nuts to crack at their home ground.

Leeds vs Swansea Prediction
This will be a chance for the home side to crawl back their way to the top spot. The Peacock will be more confident to take three points out of the match, as their opposition’s away form is not that great. Both sides have good quality players up the front, as they will decide the outcome of the match. This match will be going in the favor of the home side, as the opposition is struggling with injury concerns to key players.
The former Swans player will be up against his old club. Pablo Hernandez has been the instrumental figure in this title run for the United. It will be a nice thing to do, as to score goals against your old club in a returning fixture. My intuitions never lie and it might be Pablo Hernandez’s day.
