Leeds United vs Sheffield Wednesday

, KO: 15:00 Sep 2, 2023, Elland Road
Sheffield Wednesday

Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday are looking to put together some form this season as they square off in a Championship fixture on Sunday. Leeds have fared much better than the visitors and should have the upper hand here.

Leeds have endured a mixed start to the season, picking up one win in their opening four Championship matches. The good news is that they have suffered just one defeat all season and will be keen to build some momentum.

Daniel Farke’s men appear to be getting better as the season progresses and head into Wednesday’s clash with their first win of the season. They claimed a 4-3 victory at Ipswich Town in their previous Championship fixture with Wilfried Gnonto and Joel Piroe on target.

The major problem for Leeds United is a lack of discipline at the back as highlighted by the three goals conceded at Ipswich. They have now failed to keep a single clean sheet in all their matches across all competitions so far.

The Euphoria of promotion into the Championship appears to be fading for Sheffield Wednesday as they are funding things difficult. They have lost all four of their Championship matches this season and were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by League Two side on Wednesday.

Sheffield Wednesday are coming off a 2-1 defeat to Cardiff City in their previous Championship fixture. They looked to have earned a point after Barry Bannan cancelled out the Welsh side’s opener but conceded a dramatic late winner.

Like their hosts, Sheffield Wednesday have been woeful at the back this season and are also yet to keep a single clean sheet across all competitions. They have also conceded nine goals in just four matches.

Players to watch

Having netted his first goal for Leeds United last time out, Joel Piroe could be the one to watch on Saturday. The Dutch striker is priced at 11/10 by bet365 to score anytime.
