Leicester City vs Leeds United

, KO: 20:00 Nov 3, 2023, King Power Stadium
Leeds United

Leicester City will be aiming to extend their lead at the top of the Championship standings as they host Leeds United in a Friday night fixture. Leeds have struggled on their recent travels and should find things difficult at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester City head into Friday’s clash off the back of a 2-1 victory at QPR last time out in the Championship. They went into the break level as Stephy Mavididi’s opener was cancelled out by the hosts, although Harry Winks netted the winner 10 minutes from time.

That was the ninth straight Championship win for Leicester City who remain the team to beat this season. Sitting five points clear at the top of the standings, they are not just well on course for automatic promotion but also to emerge overall champions.

While Leicester City are generally difficult to face on any ground, the King Power Stadium remains a fortress this season. Enzo Maresca’s men have won six of their last seven Championship home matches, keeping clean sheets in the last four fixtures in that run.

Although they have not been as dominant as Leicester City, Leeds United still have reasons to be pleased with their campaign so far. Sitting third on the standings, they are well on course for a playoff finish.

Leeds United have been in good form recently and head into Friday’s clash with four wins from their last five matches. They picked up a 4-1 victory over Huddersfield Town in their previous Championship fixture with Crysencio Summerville and Dan James each netting a brace.

The slight problem for Leeds United is their away form as they have picked up just one win from their last four matches on their travels. Daniel Farke’s men have been beaten twice in that run and suffered a 1-0 defeat to Stoke City in their previous fixture on the road.
