Leeds United vs Brentford – Betting Preview
The Premier League match between Leeds United and Brentford is scheduled to take place at Elland Road. While the Bees want to go closer to a Europa League place, the Whites want to get out of the danger zone!
Leeds United Preview
Even though Leeds United, one of the largest teams in England, has a sizable fan following and is currently doing well, they are unable to get the results they require.
The Whites held on to their Premier League status on the penultimate day of the previous year, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise if the club must wait until the final matchday of this campaign as well.
With 17 points from 18 games, Jesse Marsch’s club is 14th in the Premier League standings, barely two points above the relegation zone.
There is a potential that Leeds will stay in the top division of English football because they are ranked higher than teams like Southampton, Everton, West Ham United, and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The FA Cup third-round rematch between Leeds and Cardiff City took place at Elland Road on Wednesday night, where they won that game by a convincing scoreline of 5-2!
Now Leeds takes on Brentford in Premier League at home!
This season, Brentford has been outstanding in the Premier League, and there is a significant likelihood that they will finish higher than expected in the standing!
The club led by Thomas Frank is playing excellent football and pressing the issue, even against powerhouses like Liverpool. This season, it has been a pleasure to watch the Bees.
With 29 points from 19 games, the Bees are now ranked eighth in the Premier League.
Seventh-placed Brighton and Hove Albion, who hold the UEFA Europa Conference League slot, are one point ahead of Brentford.
After 18 games, fourth-placed Manchester United is eight points ahead of Frank’s team.
After defeating Bournemouth 2-0 at home in the league, Brentford will enter their Premier League encounter against Leeds United at Elland Road on the road. It followed a 3-1 home victory over Liverpool in the league and a 1-0 loss to Premier League rivals West Ham United in the FA Cup’s third round!
1×2 Betting Odds
Although Leeds United is playing well offensively and creating chances, they are not scoring enough goals and are making mistakes in their defence.
The Whites will have the home field advantage, and they can surely take confidence from the thrashing of Cardiff City, but Brentford will think they can win at Elland Road.
The Bees are a very excellent and powerful squad, and they will be confident of coming away from the game with at least a point!
But despite all that, the market believes that Leeds will end up winning this game! The home side are the favourites to win against the bees @ 2.42.
Brentford who are 8th on the table, and have played exceptionally all season are just about the underdogs in this @ 3.00.
The possibility of a draw and points shared between the two clubs, stands @ 3.85.
Total goals over/under
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.74.
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.28.
Whenever Leeds takes the stage at Elland Road, it is the usually the case that the game sees half a dozen goals!
And the market expects such will be the case again when Brentford from London visits over the weekend!
