Having conceded in 4 of 6 latest rounds, Leeds United allowed Norwich City to catch up with them. Leeds lost to Norwich at home, 1:3, scoring a consolation goal yet in the 91st minute. Now, by additional parameters, they are only 2nd in the table.
The travelers clearly undergo a recession. Even their last win 2 rounds ago over the 21st Rotherham United, the league newcomer, was very tough. After the 1st half-time, Leeds conceded; they managed to net the winner 4 minutes before the whistle. The hosts, in contrast, are constantly improving. They drawed against the 6th Derby County and won the 7th Birmingham City. Also, they gained an away victory over the 4th Bromwich City. What can prevent them from winning the currently bleak Leeds tomorrow? Moreover, in the last 2 home head-to-heads, ‘Boro’ got very confident wins over the visitors, scoring 3:0 in each encounter. In light of the latest results and the defeat to their direct rival for the top tier, Leeds are out of the mood, while Middlesbrough boast a moral boosting that is evident from their performance. Anyways, we’d better play safe and predict a possible draw as well, as Leeds are still among the league leaders.
Prediction for the match: Middlesbrough to win or Draw.
