Leeds United vs Sunderland

, KO: 20:00 Apr 9, 2024, Elland Road
Sunderland

Having stumbled last time out, Leeds United will be looking to get their title charge back on track as they welcome Sunderland to Elland Road on Tuesday. With the Black Cats looking out of sorts lately, Leeds will be confident of making a swift return to winning ways.

Leeds United were beaten for the first time since December as they lost 2-1 to Coventry City in their previous Championship fixture. They struggled to find their rhythm in the clash and fell two goals down before Joel Piroe pulled one back late in the second half.

Although that was a rare defeat for Leeds United, the close nature of the title race means they have now dropped to third on the standings, two points off the pace. Manager Daniel Farke will be keen to get things back on track as they return to the fortress of Elland Road.

Leeds United have done most of their good work at Elland Road as they are yet to taste defeat in front of their fans across all competitions. They have won their last five home matches, keeping three clean sheets in that run.

Sunderland travel to Elland Road off the back of a 0-0 draw with Bristol City in their previous Championship fixture. They had plenty of possession and created several goalscoring opportunities but failed to get past an inspired Max O’Leary in goal for Bristol.

That result means Sunderland have now picked up just one win from their last 10 Championship matches. They have suffered seven defeats in that run but are not in any relegation danger.

Sunderland have also struggled on their travels, suffering four defeats in their last five away matches. However, their only win in that run came in their previous fixture on the road as they triumphed 2-0 at Cardiff City.

How the bookies view it

Leeds United have been installed as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 1/3 by William Hill. An unlikely victory for Sunderland is valued at 9/1 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 9/2 by 888Sport.

Head to head

Leeds United have a 31-26 advantage with 13 draws from 70 previous matches against Sunderland. However, the Black Cats claimed a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch

Crysencio Summerville struggled to get into his rhythm last time out and will be keen to set things right on Tuesday. The forward remains the leading scorer for Leeds United with 17 goals and is priced at 7/5 by William Hill to find the net.

Having had shutouts in three of their last five home matches, Leeds United will be targeting a repeat on Tuesday. Ethan Ampadu and Joe Rodon should continue their central defensive partnership and could Leeds the hosts to another clean sheet at evens with bet365.

Anything else catch the eye?

Leeds United have won to nil in three of their last five home matches and could be set for a repeat at 13/10 by BetVictor. Given the quality in their attack, they are likely to score multiple goals and can be backed in the -1 handicap market at 10/11 with bet365.

Having scored in both halves in their last two home matches, Leeds United could be set for a similar pattern at evens with BoyleSports. The hosts could also be backed to win both halves at 2/1 with bet365.
