Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 8/11 @ 1xBet

In what could prove to be an action-packed FA Cup showdown on Sunday afternoon, Leeds will make the trip to League One outfit Peterborough.

Starting with the hosts, although Peterborough might have suffered play-off heartbreak last season, the Posh have their sights firmly set on securing a Championship return in 2024. Opening the New Year with a stellar 3-2 victory away at fellow promotion contenders Derby, Darren Ferguson’s men should find the mood in their camp at a real high. In fact, the Blues are unbeaten in all of their previous 10 straight appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to November 21st. Really impressing with their clinical performances in the final third and bagging nine strikes in their last four League One showdowns, Peterborough could be smelling the chance to spring a real FA Cup upset on Sunday afternoon. However, playing out back-to-back 2-2 stalemates against Barnsley and Reading in their previous two contests London Road, it should be noted that Ferguson’s men have seen all of their last four outings finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, managing to make what was a crucial return to winning ways on New Year’s Day, Leeds will be looking now find some stability. Eventually breezing their way to a 3-0 romp against Birmingham earlier in the week, that was just the second win that Daniel Farke’s side have collected from their previous six appearances. Nevertheless, still tipped as a leading play-off contender in 2024, the former Norwich boss has his sights set on securing an immediate Premier League return. Not collecting back-to-back Championship wins since the start of December, Leeds could face a stern challenge when they travel to London Road this weekend. Including a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Preston last month, the Yorkshire-based outfit have lost all of their last three showdowns away from Elland Road. It is also worth highlighting, Sunday’s guests have mustered just a pair of wins on the road since back on October 21st. In what could be an enjoyable FA Cup contest here, we are expecting chances to come at both ends of the pitch.
