Leeds vs Wolves
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 19 October 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Elland Road.
The Whites have shown all indication they just might be the black horses this season in the EPL.
Disregarding their defeat against Liverpool on the opening day (which was a very close fixture, with Mohammed Salah scoring the winning goal via a penalty in the 88th minute), the team has remained unbeaten so far. And that includes their drawn match-up against Manchester City as well.
So, that is a stretch of four fixtures – three of which were against top-10 teams of the previous season, and two of these were against the two absolute best teams in the whole of England. And all through these games, Marcelo Bielsa’s men have been simply astonishing.
They now turn their sights towards the Wanderers. And as of now, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are struggling to put in even decent performances.
They are not at all the squad that used to terrorize some of the best teams in the league the previous campaigns. At present, they look extremely vulnerable, and Bielsa and his men are expected to just feed on this misery of the Wanderers.
Count on Leeds to dominate proceedings this Monday at the Elland Road.
Leeds vs Wolves: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Santo’s men are on a three-game winning run.
- Seven of the preceding ten clashes had three or more goals.
- Since 2005, only once have the guests failed to score at this stadium.
- The latest encounter at this venue had ended in a 0-3 win for the visitors.
Leeds vs Wolves: Prediction
The Whites secured a 1-1 draw at home the last match-day, against Manchester City. In the meantime, the Wanderers recorded a 1-0 win at home the past game week, against Fulham.
As things stand, Bielsa’s men have the upper hand. They were unbeaten in 12 of their preceding 13 overall match-ups, and this sole loss had come against defending EPL champions Liverpool.
And at home, they have not lost for over the last eight months, while having scored four or more goals in three of their preceding six appearances here.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost three of their former four overall match-ups, and even their sole win during the stretch had come against Fulham – the weakest team in the competition at the moment.
Likely, expect the in-form and determined Leeds to secure at least one point from this upcoming encounter.
However, understand that despite their free-flowing football, the Whites have had some trouble in defending well. Since their transition to the PL, they have kept a single clean sheet, and that had come against the struggling Sheffield United.
Even the lowly Fulham had managed to score three goals, and that too at this same venue.
For the reasons, expect both teams to score goals this Monday.
