Head to head

Leeds United v Sheffield United matched betting tips for the Championship match at Elland Road on Friday 27th October. Read the match preview and predictions for Leeds United v Sheffield United matched betting tips.

These two sides are flying so far this season, with both sets of fans thinking a promotion to the Premier League is well within the realms of possibility. Leeds United sit fourth in the Championship, while close rivals Sheffield United are one place above in third.

Leeds United Team News

Thomas Christiansen does not have many injuries to worry about, so he has an almost fully fit squad to choose from for this crucial Championship contest. He will be without Gaetano Berardi though, after the Swiss defender was shown a straight red card in the 3-0 away win at Bristol City. The changes made for the Carabao Cup tie at Leicester will likely be reversed here.

Sheffield United Team News

Chris Wilder will still be without defender Richard Stearman for this one. The 30 year old has been out since mid August with a hamstring injury and will continue to be on the sidelines. John Fleck is one yellow card away from a suspension, but that should not stop him taking his place in the starting line up at Elland Road. After a 2-1 win against Reading last time out, there aren’t likely to be many changes.

Leeds United v Sheffield United Predictions

Due to how successful both sides have been so far this season, it is a really tough match to call. For Leeds, the convincing win away at Bristol City will have come as a huge sigh of relief. Before that game, the club had lost three on the bounce, including a defeat at Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday.

It is Sheffield United’s turn to face Leeds this time around though, and Chris Wilder has got his side playing some excellent football. The Blades have enjoyed some oustanding results so far and crucially, they have done well against other sides expecting to challenge for promotion, such as wins against Wolves and Derby County. It remains to be seen whether or not they can keep up the promotion challenge, but it all looks good so far.

Head to head, it is Sheffield United that have dominated this fixture recently. From the last 10 matches between the two sides, The Blades have won 5, while Leeds have only claimed 2 victories in that time.

Since the two teams are so well matched now though, a draw looks like a good shout here. Though Leeds made changes for their Carabao Cup game there will still be a few tired legs, which may cost them the win in the end. There are likely to be goals, so Over 2.5 and a 2-2 Correct Score could offer good value.
