Leeds 11/10 to beat Derby County in Sunday’s Championship contest
Market: Leeds United win
Odds: 11/10 @ 888sport
Already marking their Premier League return this summer, Leeds will face off against Derby from behind closed doors on Sunday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, enduring what has been a worrying recent blip, Derby have begun freefalling down the Championship standings. In their 44 second-tier matches this season, they have recorded 16 wins, 13 draws, and 15 defeats, scoring 58 and conceding 60 in return. With a points tally of 44, the Whites now find themselves sat down in 11th and six points adrift of breaking into the play-off positions. As for their recent run of results, Derby have lost their last three Championship matchups on the bounce and have failed to win any of their last four appearances. More worrying for Sunday’s hosts, along with shipping at least a pair of strikes in each of their previous three defeats, Derby have managed to win just two of their last seven home fixtures across all competitions.
As for the visitors, embarking on what was a stellar end to this year’s Championship campaign, Leeds have already secured an automatic route out of the division. In their 44 second-tier matches this year, they have recorded 26 wins, nine draws, and nine defeats, scoring 70 and conceding 34 in return. With a points tally of 87, they open the weekend fixtures holding a five-point buffer at the top of the table. It is also worth noting that Leeds comfortably hold the best defensive record in the division. As for their previous run of results, Sunday’s guests have won their last four Championship matchups on the bounce by an aggregate score of 10-2. More impressive, unbeaten in their last six contests, they have also won four of their last five away fixtures.
