Leeds United vs Wigan Athletic Prediction

Leeds made a return to winning ways last week by taking down Millwall at home in a hard-earned 3-2 victory. The hosts, however, were trailing by a 2-0 scorecard at the end of the first half of that latter matchup.

Nevertheless, the home team were much the better side post the restart, taking them just over twenty minutes to score all three goals.

With fifty-five points to their name, Leeds are still holding on to the top spot, albeit by a narrow two-point cushion.

Meanwhile, Wigan will be making the trip to Elland Road on the back of a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday. Be that as it may, it needs saying that the victory was only their first in three games, and just the second in their past ten.

Piling on even more misery, the guests are one among the worst away sides in the cluster and for good reason. They have just one measly win to boast of on the road so far, that too against eighteenth placed Birmingham.

In sharp contrast, Leeds have admitted defeat on just two occasions at home this season. Taking into account that they have also come away with the win in seven of their past ten fixtures here, Wigan are likely to make the trip back home empty-handed.

Furthermore, the hosts have not been shy in getting their names on the scoresheet. Admirably, they have scored at least two goals or more in six of their previous eight clashes on home soil.

On the other hand, Wigan have been far too easy to breach in their outings this term. The fact that they have conceded twenty-six goals on the road certainly stands as a testament to the aforementioned.

As such, count on Leeds to rack up the goal tally effortlessly in this one.
