Leeds United play host to Manchester United at home. A classic clash between the clubs will occur in the 26th round of the English Championship. Can the Red Devils pick up their second win in a row?
After beating West Ham United 3:2, Leeds United managed just one point in their subsequent three English league appearances. Marcelo Bielsa's side drew 3:3 with Aston Villa in a scoreless encounter. Leeds lost 0:1 to Newcastle United and 0:3 away to Everton in the same period. Leeds United are 15th in the English Premier League table with 23 points.
Manchester United finally broke their losing streak in midweek. In the rescheduled 18th round of the EPL, Ralf Rangnick's side took on Brighton at home. The Mancunians suffered a poor first half but made progress after the break. Ronaldo scored first, and Fernandes made the final score, 2:0 in the game's closing stages. The victory moved United back up to fourth in the table. Manchester United have 43 points.
Expert Betting Tips
The meeting between Leeds and Manchester City is expected to be quite open and exciting, as it was in the first round. The teams exchanged dangerous attacks, but the Red Devils were better after the break. The latest victory over Brighton should reduce the pressure on Rangnick's charges and give them more confidence. It will be challenging for Leeds to improve their meeting statistics against the visitors. Bielsa's style of play suits United (in two of their last three head-to-head games, MU have won by a wide margin, although those outcomes have been at Old Trafford). We expect United to beat their opponents in an away game this time around. For the upcoming game, we suggest the following betting lines:
- W2 for 1.80
- Individual Total 2 Over 2 for 2.26
- W2 + Total Over 2.5 for 2.48
