Elland Road hosts a Yorkshire derby on Friday night.
Leeds returned to winning ways in emphatic style at Bristol City as they maintained their place in the top-six. They now host Yorkshire neighbours Sheffield United who are currently one place above them in 3rd after going on a run of eight victories in 10 games. When welcoming stronger opposition Leeds tend to keep things tight, having conceding just 11 times in 14 home matches versus top-half sides since the start of last season, resulting in 11 seeing fewer than three strikes. Only Cardiff have a better defence than the Blades this term with Under 2.5 Goals landing in eight of their 13 games so far, which we’re happy to back again.
Tip: Under 2.5
Leeds v Sheffield Utd [Total Goals Over/Under]
Chris Wilder’s side have only lost four times on their return to the Championship but three of these have come in their six away encounters. Furthermore, the defeats have occurred in their only visits to sides 13th or higher in the table. Given Leeds have won 17 of their last 26 Championship matches at Elland Road – going W7-D3-L2 against top-half teams in this time – we think the hosts look excellent value for all three points.
Leeds v Sheffield Utd
After a barren run of four games without a goal, Samuel Saiz bagged himself a brace within 15 minutes at Bristol City. It means the Spaniard has eight goals for Leeds this term in all competitions and in every match he’s netted in as a starter, he’s been the first goalscorer.
Tip: Samuel Saiz
