07/04/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm Elland Road V Predicted Score:2 - 0

Away Sunderland

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Kalvin Phillips. The English defensive midfielder has impressed for Leeds this term, having played 34 games during the season at just 22 years of age. In addition to his defensive duties, Philips has five goals to his name.

2 We fancy:

Leeds to win and over 2.5 goals scored. Sunderland have conceded 72 goals in the league this season, and the hosts will fancy their chances of increasing that tally on Saturday.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Aiden McGeady is 9/1 to score first. McGeady is Sunderland’s top scorer with seven goals this season, and football predictions see him as the Black Cats’ best hope.

Leeds United's Last Six:

Won: 1 Drawn: 1 Lost: 3

Adam Forshaw should return, having missed Leeds’ last two games against Fulham and Bolton. Unfortunately for Paul Heckingbottom, Liam Cooper has suffered a setback in his attempts to return from injury, joining Kemar Roofe and Laurens De Bock on the treatment table. Tyler Roberts and Luke Ayling are both likely to miss the remainder of the season.

Sunderland's Last Six:

Won: 1 Drawn: 1 Lost: 4

Lamine Kone is unlikely to return in time for Chris Coleman’s side, having missed the defeat to Sheffield Wednesday. Marc Wilson is likely to step in for the centre-back.

Leeds United vs Sunderland Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Leeds United take on Sunderland at Elland Road on Saturday, with both sides desperate for the points

Sunderland are desperate to avoid a second consecutive relegation, but football predictions have them as the underdog this weekend. Leeds have struggled recently themselves, but have enough points in the bank to guarantee a mid-table finish.

Leeds are 10/11 to win, and will be glad to end a tough run of games that includes Wolves, Middlesbrough and Fulham. If Heckingbottom’s side want to push for a top 10 finish, they will hope that the football score predictions for this match, which suggest a Leeds win, are correct.

Sunderland are 3/1 to win, and need to do so for half of their remaining games if they are to escape relegation. Coleman’s side has a job to do with football betting tips for the weekend strongly in Leeds’ favour.

A draw is 12/5 and would be an unsatisfactory result for either side, both of whom have a mountain to climb to improve on their current league position.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga is 13/8 to score anytime, with the German Leeds United’s leading goalscorer this season. He is leading Championship predictions for this match at 21/5 to score first.

George Honeymoon is 22/5 to score against Leeds, with the midfielder having hit the net in his last two games. With just five goals to his name this season, the 23-year-old will be leading Sunderland’s weekend football predictions.

Predicted Score: Leeds United 2 - 0 Sunderland
