Swansea City vs Leeds United
English League Championship
Date: Tuesday, 21st August 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
One of the games this Tuesday offers us a real derby for the top places. Recently relegated from the Premier League Swansea takes on high-flying Leeds United.
The Swans are sitting just outside the playoffs with 7 points in their opening 3 games. Swansea want to get back to the English top flight football as soon as possible and will be looking for a good result against Leeds.
The Swans are looking tidy and prepared for most opponent attacks but their attack doesn’t look that sharp. 3 goals in 3 games is not much of an accomplishment but still getting 7 out of 9 points shows ambitions.
They have defeated strong sides like Sheffield United and Preston but failed last game against struggling Birmingham away. The team even got away as the hosts created mpore chances despite The Swans controlling possession.
Leeds is literally flying high with Marcelo Bielsa. The enigmatic manager has lifted the spirits at Elland Road and guided his team to 3 straight victories. United plays offensive football giving very little time on the ball to his opponents forcing errors with their high pressing line.
Leeds took a nice clean victory over Rotherham last weekend. After a goalless first half the team continued to play well and eventually got rewarded. Luke Ayling and Kevin Roofe were the heroes for their team continuing the perfect start.
Swansea vs Leeds: Head-to-head
- For the last time these two sides met back in 2010-11 season with both teams winning their home games: 3-0 at Liberty Stadium and 2-1 at Elland Road
- Swansea has won their 2 home game against Leeds – 3-0 and 3-2
- Leeds has 6 straight victories in all competitions
- The Swans are unbeaten in 3 game since the start of the season
Swansea vs Leeds: Predictions
Leeds are just on top of their game right now. The team plays well in all areas and plays with a lot of commitment. Swansea are having troubles scoring and this may cost them against a strong United side. The visitors are slight favourites here in terms of form and will be playing for victory.
