Leeds United vs. Manchester City Prediction

Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for Leeds United vs. Manchester City at English Premier League

  • Where: Elland Road, Leeds. England
  • When: Wednesday, December 28, 9 pm CET

Leeds United hosts the EPL champions, Manchester City, in the closing game of the round of 17. The Peacocks are slightly ahead of the relegation zone, with a very fierce battle awaiting them until the end of the year. They didn’t have any luck with injuries, but that’s something that hauled this unit for a long time. As for the Citizens already had one competitive event against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup, ending that affair with success.

Leeds United vs. Manchester City Preview

Leeds United

Jesse Marsch has numerous problems caused by the injuries. That’s been Leeds’ destiny in the past two years, with the Peacocks constantly facing issues with absent players. That, of course, takes a toll because this unit deserves much better than 15th place, yet simply luck doesn’t allow them to show that. 

Each time this team hits the pitch, we see an interesting matchup. In 14 appearances, 48 goals took place, and Leeds’ events have been among the most efficient in the league. 

The average at home, the Elland Road, is three goals, with 12 scored and nine allowed in 7 events. By the way, Leeds played during the World Cup pause, having three friendly events, and all of them ended with both teams scoring over 2.5 goals. 

Manchester City

Erling Haaland didn’t have a pause. The Norwegian scored the first goal for his team in the matchup against Liverpool last Thursday, keeping the incredible pace set at the start of the season. Manchester City won that one 3-2, eliminating the Reds from the competition and boosting the morale for the remainder of the year. 

We don’t need to say too much about the style of play City prefers because it hasn’t changed in the past several years: possession, aggressiveness, and constant pressure on the rivals’ defense.

In four of the previous five competitive events, Man City scored at least two goals. Meanwhile, Guardiola’s approach is a bit tougher when playing on the road, and five of the previous six away events concluded with the Citizens posting a clean sheet.

Leeds United vs. Manchester City Head to Head

Man City humiliated Leeds last year, beating them 0-4 on the road and 7-0 at home. Those were pretty nasty games for the Peacocks’ fans.

Leeds United vs. Manchester City Prediction

The hosts are much weaker than the EPL champs, who are coming to Leeds at full speed. The World Cup pause didn’t have any impact on the Citizens, and we saw that against Liverpool. Our suggestion here would be to bet on Manchester City’s victory, by a high margin.

Our verdict: Manchester City wins
