Leeds United hosts Derby County in a game from the 27th round
Leeds United hosts Derby County in a game from the 27th round of the English Championship. Let’s take a look at this fixture in our vip football bets for today.
Leeds are leading the Championship standings after 26 games played. Marcelo Bielsa’s team is having 51 points won so far, enjoying a lead of 2 points in front of the 2nd Norwich City. For Leeds it could be a long awaited return to the Premier League at the end of the season. So far their record in the league shows 15 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses.
But now Leeds are in a negative run of results. Bielsa’s boys lost their last two matches in the league against Hull City and Nottingham Forest. Against Forest Leeds suffered a 2-4 defeat, despite of the fact that they had a lead in the result after goals from Jack Clarke and Egzijan Alioski.
If we also consider the loss against Queens Park Rangers in a match from FA Cup, we can say that at this moment Leeds are in a run of three consecutive defeats in all competitions.
Derby County on the other hand are 6th in the Championship standings with 43 points and a record of 12 wins, 7 draws and 7 defeats. In their last five games Derby won just once – against Norwich City, also doing three draws and suffering one defeat.
In their last game Derby County made a 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough at home at the Pride Park. Harry Wilson opened the score for Derby, while Jordan Hugill equalized for Boro.
Derby County are a team which fights for a promotion to the Premier League, so they also need every point possible they can win at the moment.
