Bitesize Prediction: Swansea vs Leeds – 13/02/24

Competition: Championship

Market: Leeds win

Odds: 8/15 @ 1xBet

Hoping to find a route into the automatic promotion places on Tuesday night, a high-flying Leeds will travel to the Liberty when they meet Swansea.

Starting with the hosts, managing to make a crucial return to winning ways over the weekend as they secured a shock 1-0 victory away at Hull, Swansea will be desperate to use that performance as a platform to build on. However, while Luke Williams might have eased some of the pressure on his shoulders, the Swans have struggled to find any kind of stability this season. Almost sat in Championship limbo and still battling it out in the bottom-half of the table, the former Notts County boss should be bracing himself for a stern examination here. Crashing out of the FA Cup last month following a 5-0 drumming at the hands of Premier League outfit Bournemouth, Swansea have recorded just a single win from any of their previous six appearances across all competitions. Tipped as a real underdog contender on Tuesday night, Williams will also have a recent headache over his side’s issues on home soil. Last seen at the Liberty getting hit with a worrying 1-0 loss against Plymouth, it should be noted that the Whites have suffered back-to-back defeats at the Liberty by an aggregate score of 4-1.

As for the visitors, while Leeds might have lost their Premier League status last season, Daniel Farke’s men have their sights set on securing an immediate top-flight return. Continuing on what has been a real Championship romp, the Yorkshire-based outfit open Tuesday’s trip to the Liberty sat just a single point adrift of breaking into the automatic promotion places. Last seen over the weekend putting in another thumping performance as they cruised to a 3-0 victory against local rivals Rotherham, the former Norwich boss will be smelling the chance to make another statement here. Extending on their FA Cup adventure last week as they landed an action-packed 4-1 victory away at Plymouth, Leeds are unbeaten in all of their previous nine appearances across all competitions. Likewise, securing a 3-1 win when they welcomed Swansea to Elland Road for their reverse Championship meeting back on November 29th, Farke will be calling on a repeat performance in midweek. Two sides who find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the table, we are backing an away victory here.
