Norwich City vs Leeds United
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 25th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Carrow Road.
Leaders Leeds Untied are visiting Norwich City trying to keep their place on the top. The sides come into this game with different motivation and objectives and it will be interesting how this encounter unfolds.
Norwich are having a mixed season so far. The Canaries are already looking inconsistent getting results in the two far sides. The defensive line has problems despite the clean sheet from last game and its evident Farke needs to improve his team in that area.
Wednesday Norwich managed to pick up a good result against Preston North End at home. Following their rather disappointing performances in the first 3 rounds the team finally improved. The game looked like a goalless draw but the hosts netted twice in the last 10 minutes of the game.
Leeds are looking good under Bielsa. The team likes to control the flow of the game with lots of passing. United is dangerous up front and only WBA have scored more goals in the league than them. Defensively the team doesn’t looks so shy either and has decent defensive record.
Midweek Leeds barely avoided defeat. They traveled to Swansea for one of their toughest fixtures this season. The team went 2 times behind but Marcelo Bielsa’s reaction put United back into the game eventually winning them the point.
