Leeds United hosts Barnsley in round 44 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Thursday, July 16th at Elland Road (Leeds)
After West Bromwich lost points in the last matches with Blackburn and Fulham, Leeds finally became the sole leader of the Championship, and it is unlikely to give up the first line. Firstly, the Peacocks are playing confidently now, and secondly, the calendar of the remaining rounds can be considered favorable. Bielsa’s squad lost only five points in the last 11 rounds, and although Leeds often gained minimal victories, it would be strange to lose points in a match against a clear outsider of the league that can already pack up and leave for the First League.

Most likely, Barnsley will not stay in the Championship. Yes, two draws in two rounds and only two defeats in six matches, but this was not enough at the finish. The game with Luton Town was decisive, but the visitors could not score three points, and now they are three points behind the saving line. It’s not so much, but who are the rivals? Leeds, Nottingham Forest and Brentford are the teams from the top six, which really need points. And it seems the maximum that the Tykes can claim in these matches is one or two points. It will simply not be enough to maintain a place in the league.
Leeds accustomed its fans to the fact that it could fail in any match. In case of victory over Barnsley, the Peacocks will be able to guarantee promotion to the Premier League officially. We will find out what will happen next season and what kind of team it will be later. They talk about serious infusions. What can poor Tykes hope for against a super-motivated opponent? Probably not to lose with a crushing score. I will give preference to the hosts. Leeds is unlikely to lose points in such a match.
Prediction for the match: Leeds to win with -1.0 handicap
