Two Championship heavyweights go head to head at Elland Road on Friday night as Leeds United host Aston Villa.
The Whites look to have turned a corner after a run of seven defeats in eight games and have climbed to within three points of the play offs following a resounding victory over Yorkshire rivals Barnsley last time out. Defensively Leeds have been poor, but at the other end of the pitch, on their day, they’re unplayable.
Samuel Saiz has taken to the Championship like a duck to water bagging five goals and assisting in four goals.
Steve Bruce’s side head to Elland Road knowing a win will see them move up into third place and close the gap on league leaders Wolves. The Villans have enjoyed an upturn in form after a slow, inconsistent start, and are now well placed to compete for promotion heading into the second half of the season.
Thomas Christiansen will be boosted by the return of Ronaldo Vieira after suspension. Striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga also return. However, Eunan O’Kane and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson remain doubts. Felix Wiedwald is set to continue in goal.
Villa have a number of injury problems with Mile Jedinak, John Terry, Scott Hogan and Jonathan Kodjia all expected to be sinelined for a lengthy period of time.
Albert Adomah has been in red hot form for Villa bagging five goals in his last three outings and looks good value to open the scoring at 6/1.
Both teams have scored at least once in each of their last five games so the chances of this one ending goalless is highly unlikely. Both teams to score is 20/21.
Like most games in the Championship this one could go either way. Leeds have been patchy of late while Bruce, you’d think, would settle for a point away from home. So with that in mind I fancy both teams to score and draw at 3/1.
