On Monday 19 October, Leeds will host Wolverhampton at Elland Road. In our forecast, we evaluated the latest performances of the teams and prepared a bet on this intriguing match.
Leeds got off to a great start to the season, immediately breaking into the football headlines in England. First, the Peacocks fought the champion on his field, losing to Liverpool only because of a late penalty (3: 4). Then the charges of Marcelo Bielsa shot down Fulham (4: 3), beat Sheffield United (1: 0), and in the last round took points from Manchester City (1: 1).
With seven points, Leeds are ranked eighth in the Premier League. The “Peacocks” seemed to have not taken off anywhere. Against the background of such a start, many are more interested in the question of whether Leeds will retain their registration, but whether the club will be able to compete for participation in European competitions.
However, Leeds were kicked out of the League Cup right away. “White” lost on penalties to “Hull”.
Taking into account last season, Leeds’ defeat at Liverpool is the only one in the last 12 league games. Home unbeaten streak of “peacocks” is 11 official fights.
Adam Forshaw and Diego Llorente are injured at Leeds. The involvement of Liam Cooper and Kiko Casilla is in question.
Wolverhampton started rather poorly in the new season. The Wolves had a hard time getting a foothold even in the middle of the standings, beating Sheffield United (2: 0) and Fulham (1: 0). In other meetings, Nuno Santo defeated Leicester (4: 0) and defeated Manchester City (3: 1). However, in the last championship, Wolves started even worse, but then made up for lost time. It is all the more interesting to see how Wolverhampton will play further.
The Wolves were knocked out of the League Cup in the very first match. Stoke City beat Nuno Santo at Molinho (1-0).
Considering last season, the Wolves had poor away results. Wolverhampton have won only one of their previous five away Premier League games, losing three. In each of the lost matches, the “wolves” failed to score.
With the club’s roster, everything is fine, despite the outbreak of covid in the Portuguese national team, whose natives make up the bulk of the roster. Honatan Castro Otto is not available for this match. Ruben Vinagre also moved to Olympiacos.
Leeds have lost only 1 of 12 previous league matches.
The peacocks’ home unbeaten streak reached 11 official matches.
In 7 of those 11 matches, Leeds have not conceded.

11/22/17 Wolverhampton Leeds 4: 1

This match looks like a confrontation between two roughly equal teams. Bookmakers think so too, setting the same odds for the clubs to win.
Despite the performance in the previous meetings of the teams in the Premier League, the face-to-face match between them promises to be not rich in goals. ” Leeds” with Bielsa in the Championship is often played on the outcome. The statistics of victories “total under 2.5” in the last matches of “wolves” in the championship also speaks for itself.
