Wigan vs Leeds
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 17 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: DW Stadium (Wigan).

Wigan ended up in the lower-most tier in the league table last season, and in no way raised considerable challenges to teams from the other half of standings. They have picked up from they left off things last campaign, as they lost 3-0 on the road to the inconsistent Preston just the last match-day.

And now, to compound their problems, they are about to welcome Leeds, who had missed out on promotion by the tiniest of margins. Marcelo Bielsa’s men had finished third and qualified for the playoffs. They had even won the first leg of the semis, which were on the road, but conceded defeat in the return fixture to let go of their dream.

This time, they are determined to rectify that mistake, and Wigan should be cautious taking on this wounded beast.

Wigan vs Leeds Head-to-head (h2h)

  • It’s been five years since a home win has been recorded in an h2h encounter.

Wigan vs Leeds Prediction

Leeds is unbeaten in their last five match-ups and scored three or more goals in two of their previous three fixtures. On the road, they are on a streak of four unbeaten match-ups and won three of them as well. Going on, the team was invincible in seven of their last eight and registered six wins in the process as well.

On the other hand, Wigan lost their last two games and failed to score in both. They had also conceded two or more goals in three of their last four ties too. In addition, the squad went winless in eight of their last twelve appearances at home too.

Furthermore, h2h clashes have not returned a home win since 2014, and importantly, taking into account the determination of the top-tier side to get to the Premier League, a win for them is surely the pick of the day.
