THE LOWDOWN

LEEDS UTD

  • As it looked like their home clash against Crystal Palace was petering out into a draw, a VAR intervention following a Marc Guehi handball, gifted Leeds Utd all three points as talisman Raphinha slotted home the resulting penalty, lifting the Whites five points clear of the bottom three.
  • Marcelo Bielsa is set to be afforded a double boost with both striker Patrick Bamford and defender Luke Ayling both standing a good chance of being available for selection against Brentford, whilst Pascal Struijk faces a late fitness test due to a hip problem.

BRENTFORD

  • Brentford had their moments against Tottenham this past Thursday, but ultimately succumbed to defeat in North London, leaving them just a point above Leeds heading into this latest round of fixtures.
  • The Bees remain without defender Kristoffer Ajer and goalkeeper David Raya, both important players to head coach Thomas Frank, who will also be unable to call upon Josh Dasilva, Julian Jeanvier and Mathias Jorgensen.

QUESTIONABLE:

THE PREDICTION

This encounter may come down to which of these two teams are the fittest, with both having featured in tough midweek matches. However, Leeds Utd are set to benefit from having been afforded two days of extra rest compared to the visitors, who played only this past Thursday night. The hosts are notoriously a very fit side with Marcelo Bielsa’s notoriously tough training sessions standing them in good stead ahead of this game. Therefore, it would be no surprise if Leeds were to impose themselves on proceedings deeper and deeper into the piece, ultimately capitalising on any mental and/or physical fatigue shown by the visitors. Back Leeds Utd to accrue a second successive league victory, but consider doing so via the draw no bet market as Brentford are not an outfit to be underestimated.

Tip: LEEDS UTD DRAW NO BET
