Away Cardiff City

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

The match result and both teams to score market, which has plenty of value. Leeds can be backed at 24/5 under these circumstances, with Cardiff at 5/1 and the draw available at 15/4.

2 We fancy:

Leeds to win 2-1 at 10/1. The Whites are certainly due a win, and it would not be a surprise if it came this weekend. Cardiff will enter the match having lost four of their last six in the Championship.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Cardiff to win 4-1 at 80/1. The Bluebirds have scored four goals in two of their last four matches in all competitions. Meanwhile, Leeds conceded four times in their last home league match against Millwall.

Leeds United vs Cardiff City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Leeds take on Cardiff at Elland Road in the Championship this weekend

Cardiff will be looking to record their third straight Championship victory over Leeds when the pair lock horns this weekend. After losing three times to the Whites between November 2015 and September 2016, Cardiff won 2-0 at Elland Road last term before recording a 3-1 victory in Wales in the reverse match earlier this season. It is the type of match that neither manager dare lose at this stage of the campaign.

Leeds are 48/25 as they look to bounce back from what has been a difficult few weeks in the second tier of English football. The Whites have lost three and drawn two of their last five league matches, with that run of form seeing them drop into 10th position in the Championship. Indeed, the former Champions League semi-finalists are without a victory in the league since beating Burton Albion 2-1 on Boxing Day.

Cardiff are 7/4 as the Welsh outfit look to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat to Manchester City in the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon. Neil Warnock’s side have beaten Sunderland and drawn with Sheffield Wednesday in their last two Championship matches after a run of four straight defeats. Meanwhile, the Welsh outfit have won six, drawn three and lost five of their 14 away fixtures in the second tier this season.

The draw is 23/10, but it is worth noting that these two teams have not drawn a league match since April 2012. Indeed, there has been a winner in each of their last nine Championship encounters. That said, Leeds have drawn four times at Elland Road in the league this season, and the two teams are well matched in terms of talent.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga is 6/1 in the first goalscorer market this weekend. The 26-year-old has managed seven Championship goals in 16 appearances this term, and netted twice against Millwall on January 20. It is 5/2, meanwhile, that the Leeds forward is on the scoresheet at any point during the 90 minutes of action.

Zohore is 11/2 to break the deadlock, while the 23-year-old can be backed at 7/4 to score at any point during the game. The Danish striker has managed four goals in 18 league appearances for the Welsh team this season, and will again lead their line against Leeds at Elland Road.

Predicted Score: Leeds United 2 - 1 Cardiff City
