Market: Leeds win
Odds: 8/11 @ Bet 365
Picking up a 1-0 win in the first-leg on Saturday, Leeds will welcome Derby to Elland Road on Wednesday night as they look to book their spot at Wembley later in the month.
Starting with the hosts, while Leeds may have struggled with their consistency at the back end of the season, the Whites will be boosted by the advantage they picked up over the weekend. In their 46 Championship matches this year, they recorded 25 wins, eight draws and 13 defeats, scoring 73 and conceding 50 in return. Finishing the year with a points tally of 83 and in third spot, Leeds also held a nine-point buffer over Derby in the final standings. As for their recent run of results, while Wednesday’s hosts have registered just one win in their last five appearances, they do hold a very commanding record against their visitors in midweek. Leeds have won their last three matches against Derby, scoring seven goals and conceding just one in return.
As for the visitors, after suffering a first-leg defeat at Pride Park over the weekend, Derby’s major issue this season has been their performances on the road. In their 46 Championship fixtures this year, they recorded 20 wins, 14 draws and 12 defeats, scoring 69 and conceding 54 in return. Finishing the campaign in sixth spot and occupying the final playoff position, no team in the top-six holds a worse attacking record than the Rams. As for their recent run of results, while Derby have lost just one of their last seven outings, Wednesday’s visitors have registered just one away victory in their last 10 matches away from Pride Park.
