Wolves vs Leeds United
England – Premier League
Date: Friday, 19 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium.
The Wanderers are going through an inconsistent run still, and that’s kind of been their hallmark this whole campaign. They are conceding goals in regular intervals, and as of now their hopes for European qualification is almost done.
However, they are trying their best to make a gradual return to normalcy. And this upcoming match-up against the Peacocks would be considered to be a good opportunity to do that.
The reason being, Marcelo Bielsa’s men have not shown great discipline at the back this season. They are finding it hard to cope with the intense offense in the Premier League, after securing a promotion to the top flight just at the end of the last season.
Going on, goals have come in plenty over the years in h2h encounters as well.
Likely, expect a high-scoring thriller this Friday at the Molineux Stadium.
Wolves vs Leeds: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are on a four-match winning run.
- Six of the preceding ten clashes had goals from both teams.
- Seven of the past ten meetings had three or more goals.
- Three of former four games at this venue had five or more goals.
- The visitors had recorded wins in two of the past three match-ups at this stadium.
Wolves vs Leeds Prediction
The Wanderers won 1-2 on the road the last match-day, against Southampton. In the meantime, the Peacocks lost 4-2 on the road the past game week, against Arsenal.
Going on, Santo’s men were winless in ten of their former fourteen overall matches, and they had conceded two or more goals in three of their last five appearances at home. Note that they were also winless at home in four of their former five games.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost five of their preceding eight overall fixtures, and had lost six of their previous ten road trips.
In fact, they had also conceded three or more goals in five of their last eight away games.
In addition, majority of h2h encounters over the years have had goals in plenty, and particularly the ones at this venue.
Considering these stats, expect a goal-fest this Friday between these two weak defenses.
