Leeds United vs Blackburn Rovers

, KO: 12:30 Apr 13, 2024, Elland Road
Blackburn Rovers

After stumbling in recent weeks, Leeds United will be looking to get their campaign back on track as they host troubled Blackburn Rovers. Leeds remain quite solid at home and should be too strong for Blackburn, who have found things difficult lately.

Leeds United have been slightly out of sorts lately having failed to win their last two matches. First they were beaten 2-1 at Coventry City before playing out a 0-0 draw with Sunderland last time out in the Championship.

The good news is that their closest rivals also dropped points so they remain in the mix for both automatic promotion and the Championship title. Daniel Farke’s men remain third on the standings, just one point off leaders Leicester City.

Leeds United may have stumbled at home last time out but Elland Road remains a fortress where they are yet to taste defeat all season. They also boast a solid defensive record on home soil and have kept clean sheets in three of their last four matches in front of their fans.

It has been a rough period for Blackburn Rovers, who have picked up just one win from their last 13 matches. John Eustace’s men are inching ever closer to the relegation zone and are now just three points above the bottom three.

Blackburn Rovers travel to Elland Road off the back of one of their worst defeats of the season as they were hammered 5-0 at Bristol City last time out. They were constantly carved open at the back and then failed to take the few chances created at the other end of the pitch.

The defeat at Bristol City highlights one of the problems for Blackburn Rovers, who have lacked the cutting edge in attack in recent weeks. Despite boasting Championship top scorer Sammie Szmodics, they have failed to find the net in four of their last five matches.

How the bookies view it

Leeds United are considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 7/20 by Coral. An unlikely victory for Blackburn Rovers is valued at 9/1 by bet365 while 888Sport is offering odds of 9/2 for a draw.

Recent head to head

Leeds United are unbeaten in the last five meetings with Blackburn Rovers, claiming four wins in that run. They picked up a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December with Daniel James and Crysencio Summerville getting the goals.

Players to watch

Crysencio Summerville has been slightly out of sorts lately but remains the leading scorer for Leeds United with 17 goals. The forward was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 29/20 by William Hill to get on the score sheet on Saturday.

Despite Leeds United’s recent stumbles, their defence has remained solid with three shutouts in the last four matches. Joe Rodon and Ethan Ampadu should continue at the back and can lead the hosts to another clean sheet at evens with BoyleSports.

It was a win to nil for Leeds United in the reverse fixture and a similar outcome is priced at 13/10 with BetVictor. Given Blackburn Rovers’ heavy defeat last time out, Leeds could be backed in the -1 handicap market at 10/11 with BoyleSports.

With Leeds United expected to be dominant on Saturday, they could be tipped to score in both halves at 21/20 with William Hill. The hosts could also be backed to win both halves at 2/1 with bet365.
