Leeds vs Brentford Prediction & Analysis
Leeds host Brentford in an English Premier League match.
The Whites will try to break a streak of 5 matches for the championship, in which they remained without a win (3 losses).
Jesse Marsh's side are playing well in attack and creating chances but not scoring enough goals.
And at the same time he makes defensive mistakes.
Although Leeds will have the home advantage, in my opinion Brentford have a better chance of winning today's match.
The Bees have a very strong and well-balanced team . And they could at least take a point from the meeting.
But I will go further and trust them for the victory.
As Brentford have recorded 3 consecutive wins in the Premier League , scoring 2+ goals in each of them.
Including 3-1 against Liverpool.
The main contribution to the success of the Londoners is their leader in attack - Ivan Toney .
He has scored 13 goals in 17 Premier League games this season, including in each of his previous 4 appearances.
Which is very high efficiency.
That's why I added him as an option in this football prediction of mine.
Leeds - statistics and info
Leeds United is one of the biggest clubs in England and has a huge fan base.
And while they're playing well right now, they just can't get the results they need.
The Whites survived the Premier League on the final day of last season.
And you shouldn't be surprised if the club has to wait until the last game to sort things out this time around.
Jesse Marsh's side are 14th in the Premier League table ahead of the round with 17 points from 18 games.
Which is just two points above the relegation zone .
Leeds have more points than Southampton, Everton, West Ham and Bournemouth.
So it has a chance to survive in the top division of English football even now.
United take on Cardiff at Elland Road in an FA Cup third round replay on Wednesday night.
And they won convincingly 5-2.
The Whites suffered a 1-2 defeat away to Aston Villa in the league last week.
It came after a 2-2 draw with Championship club Cardiff away.
Patrick Bamford is fit and available for Leeds United.
The England striker came off the bench against Villa last week and could start against Brentford.
Tyler Adams, Luke Ayling and Jack Harrison should also be starters.
