Norwich City vs Leeds United

, KO: 12:00 May 12, 2024, Carrow Road
Leeds United

Norwich City and Leeds United square off in the Championship playoff semi-final first leg with both teams looking to claim the upper hand. Neither side ended the regular season on a high and plagued by defensive problems lately, they could be set to serve up goals in this one.

It was a disappointing end to the regular season for Norwich City, who picked up just one win from their final five matches. David Wagner’s men were beaten 1-0 at Birmingham City in their previous Championship fixture.

Norwich City have been plagued by draws in recent weeks and were held three times in the last five matches, including successive stalemates in their last two home fixtures. They have also shown some defensive vulnerability, keeping just one clean sheet in that run.

Leeds United endured one of the most disappointing ends to the season as they were top with only weeks left to play before capitulating in their final matches. They have lost four of their last six fixtures and travel to Carrow Road off the back of a 2-1 home defeat to Southampton.

Part of the problem for Leeds United has been dodgy defending having kept just one clean sheet in their last eight matches. However, Daniel Farke’s men have fared a bit better on their travels and are unbeaten in four of their last six away matches.

How the bookies view it: Leeds favoured to claim the upper hand

Players to watch: Summerville to carry form into the playoffs

Crysencio Summerville was the standout player for Leeds United in the regular season, scoring 19 goals. The forward netted a brace in the meeting at Carrow Road and is priced at 9/4 by bet365 to get on the score sheet once again.

Norwich City have attacking quality of their own, with Josh Sargent, who was their leading scorer in the regular season with 16 goals. The forward could be worth keeping an eye on at 12/5 by bet365.

Probable line-ups
