Over 2.5 goals at Swansea City vs Leeds United 10/11 for Sunday’s Championship showdown

Competition: Championship

Market: Over 2.5 goals

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

Hoping to inch closer to a Premier League return, Leeds will make the trip to an empty Liberty Stadium in what could be a lively contest on Sunday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, putting on another eye-catching display against Birmingham in midweek and picking up a thumping 3-1 win, Swansea still find themselves firmly battling it out in the play-off chase. Within touching distance of breaking into the top-six and now landing back-to-back victories, the Whites have lost just a single matchup since returning from the enforced break. Really starting to shine in the final third, there is no doubt that Head Coach Steve Cooper will be calling on the red-hot Rhian Brewster to lead their charge at the Liberty this weekend. Once again finding the net at St. Andrew’s earlier in the week, the Liverpool loanee has now bagged back-to-back Championship strikes and has recorded four goals since making a return to action last month. Snatching a point off of West Brom on their return to action and also landing a thumping 3-0 romp against Middlesbrough, Swansea could be smelling an upset on Sunday.

As for the visitors, really laying down another marker in midweek and picking up a thumping 5-0 romp against Stoke at Elland Road, Leeds will know they’re within touching distance of marking a Premier League return this summer. Collecting 10 points over their last four Championship contests, Head Coach Marcelo Bielsa has seen his side really shine in the final third. Including picking up a stunning 3-0 win against top-two outsiders Fulham last month, Leeds have now bagged 12 goals on their most recent purple patch. One man to keep an eye out for on Sunday could be leading marksman, Patrick Bamford. Also finding the net in midweek, the former Chelsea starlet has landed four post-lockdown strikes and will be confident of extending on that tally this weekend. With five of the last six meetings between the two sides seeing over 2.5 goals by the final whistle, we’re backing a similar outcome at the Liberty.
