Leeds United vs Derby County

One game that you certainly will not want to miss takes place this Friday at Elland Road as Derby County takes on Leeds United. Leeds have been incredibly strong under the management of Marcelo Bielsa this season which has earned them a spot at the top of the table, but they find themselves in a run of poor form he will be keen to put to an end. Frank Lampard has also done well to turn Derby into a side capable of challenging for a top-four finish and although they are heavy underdogs, they chances of winning should not be knocked.

Leeds United sit pretty at the top of the Championship table after 26 games and have put themselves in a great position to finish in an automatic promotion spot by the end of the season. Leeds had been enjoying a win streak of seven consecutive wins, but a 2-0 loss to Hull City has seen that run end and now they have suffered three consecutive losses. Their most recent defeat came in the FA Cup against QPR who won 2-1. Although the hosts are struggling for form they remain the clear favourites to win this game and can be backed with Bet365 for a price of 3/4.

The Whites have not been slacking in front of goal this season with 44 goals scored and Kemar Roofe is responsible for 13 of those and currently leads as Leeds top goalscorer. Betway has the forward to score anytime priced at 11/10. For the majority of the season, Leeds have been defensively strong but this hasn’t been the case over the last five games which has seen them concede 12 goals. Also, Four of their last five fixtures have seen over 2.5 goals scored and Bet365 have over 2.5 goals to be scored priced at 8/11.


Derby County continues to impress under the management of Frank Lampard and their efforts have earned them a spot in sixth place. The Rams have lost just one of their last eight games which is very impressive considering the opponents they have faced which include; Nottingham Forest, Middlesbrough, Norwich City and a FA Cup fixture against Southampton. Even with their strong form they have the odds stacked against them to secure the three points and can be backed at Betway for a price of 100/30.

Four of Leeds last five games have seen both teams score and all five of Derby’s last five fixtures have seen both sides get on the scoresheet which makes a BTTS market seem like a banker. SkyBet has both teams to score at 8/13. When these sides first met in the league, Leeds eased to a 4-1 victory and you can back a repeat result at SkyBet for a price of 28/1. Lampard will be hoping for a strong performance from Harry Wilson who is currently their joint top goalscorer with ten goals. Jack Marriott has also got ten goals this season with three coming in his last six appearances and Betway are offering odds of 9/4 for him to add to his tally.
