Leeds United and Brentford will face each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match between the West Yorkshire club and the London outfit will take place at Elland Road and is scheduled to kick off at 2pm UK time on Sunday.

Leeds United

Leeds United are one of the biggest clubs in England and have a massive fanbase, and while they are playing well at the moment, they are simply unable to get the results needed. The Whites survived in the Premier League on the final day of last season, and one should not be surprised if the club have to wait until the last matchday to get things sorted this time around as well.

Jesse Marsch’s team are 14th in the Premier League table at the moment with 17 points from 18 matches, just two points above the relegation zone. Leeds are above the likes of Southampton, Everton, West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers, so there is a chance that they will survive in the top flight of English football.

Leeds will take on Cardiff City at Elland Road in the FA Cup third-round replay on Wednesday evening before the match against Brentford at home in the Premier League. The Whites suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa away from home at Villa Park in the league last week. It came after a 2-2 draw with Championship club Cardiff away from home at Cardiff City Stadium in the third round of the FA Cup.

Team News:

Patrick Bamford is fit and available now for Leeds United. The English striker came off the bench against Aston Villa last week, and he could start against Brentford at Elland Road this coming weekend. Tyler Adams Luke Ayling and Jack Harrison should also start.

Brentford

Brentford have been superb in the Premier League so far this season, and there is a very good chance that they could end up in the European places in the table. Thomas Frank’s side are playing wonderful football and are taking the game to the opposition, including against big teams such as Liverpool.The Bees have been a joy to watch this season.

The Bees are eighth in the Premier League table at the moment with 29 points from 19 matches. Brentford are a point behind seventh-placed Brighton and Hove Albion, who occupy the UEFA Europa Conference League spot. Frank’s side are eight points behind fourth-placed Manchester United, who have played 18 games.

Brentford will head into the match against Leeds United away from home at Elland Road in the Premier League on the back of a 2-0 win against Bournemouth at home in the league. It came after a 1-0 loss at the hands of Premier League rivals West Ham United in the third round of the FA Cup and followed a 3-1 home victory over Liverpool in the league.

Team News:

Ivan Toney has been one of the best players in the Premier League so far this season, and the striker will continue to lead the line for Brentford.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Leeds United have scored 26 goals in 18 Premier League matches.
  • Brentford have scored 32 goals in 19 Premier League matches.
  • Leeds United have won 4 Premier League games all season.
  • Brentford have lost 4 Premier League matches so far this season.
  • Ivan Toney has scored 13 goals in 17 Premier League games for Brentford.

Conclusion

Leeds United are playing well in attack and are creating chances, but they are not scoring enough goals and are making defensive mistakes. Although the Whites will have home advantage, Brentford will fancy their chances of winning at Elland Road. The Bees have a very good and strong team, and they will be confident of picking up at least a point from the encounter.

Prediction: Match to end in 1-1 draw

Best Odds: 11/2
