Both these teams had missed out on promotion by a whisker the last season. They had qualified for the playoffs, after failing to seal the direct-entry tickets, but in the post-season, they could not manage to keep up the momentum they had shown throughout the year.
As of now, both seem determined to make it to the Premier League somehow this campaign. The Albion is placed at the top of the table, and so far, they remain the only squad to avoid a loss in the whole roster of the competition.
Their counterparts meanwhile, is placed fifth in the standings, and have had the best defensive stats till this point in the league.
Leeds vs West Brom Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met, which was in March of 2019, Marcelo Bielsa’s men recorded a 4-0 victory.
- Four of the previous five games saw Leeds losing.
- The last two visits to this venue saw the guests conceding twice or more.
- The hosts of the particular day have scored two or more goals in the preceding five fixtures.
Leeds vs West Brom Prediction
This is quite easily one of the best fixtures the Championship has to offer this match-day. Both are in the hunt for promotion and as such each point matters, and especially so against each other.
Bielsa’s men have the home advantage and coupled with their excellent defending, have the slight upper hand here. Moreover, they had recorded a massive 4-0 win over this opponent in 2019 itself, which further improves their chances.
As such, count on the hosts to battle it out on the pitch to post three points.
Coming to goals, despite the in-form backline, we need to take into account the sheer form of the visitors, and their unbeaten run so far. Moreover, they have the best offensive squad so far, with the most goals scored in the competition.
Finally, despite the loss in the most recent encounter, West Brom had had the superiority in preceding h2h clashes.
With these observations in mind, it would be illogical to back the hosts to keep a clean sheet.
