Leeds United vs Fulham Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) game from Elland Road sees Leeds play host to Fulham in a battle between two teams with promotion hopes. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Leeds will have been disappointed last time out as they were held by Preston at Elland Road to a goalless draw. They saw more of the ball and created more chances but could not find a way past a well-drilled unit. Fulham will have been delighted to come away from Reading with a point following a first minute dismissal from Tomas Kalas. They were one down before Lucas Piazon levelled in the 82nd minute and that was how the scoring ended. Both meetings between the pair ended 1-1 last season and in fact each of their last four meetings have finished drawn. Tom Cairney has netted a goal in each of their last three battles.

Betting Tips and Predictions

I think Fulham must be due a victory soon but cannot seem to get a break at the moment, they hit the woodwork when 1-0 ahead and on top against Norwich and then had a man dismissed in the first minute against Reading. Given the short turn around and that they played 89 minutes with ten-men I will skip it here. I will take a play on the second-half being the highest scoring in the game as legs will tire with both teams playing on Saturday and Fulham with ten-men. It also worth a small interest that a late goal is scored with the time of the market set at a goal after 74:59.

Second-half to be the highest scoring 45 minutes

YES a goal will be scored after 74:59

Leeds United Preview

It has been a solid start to the season for Leeds under new boss Thomas Christiansen as they have taken four points from two games. They got a nice opening day victory over Bolton in Lancashire but would have been disappointed not to have defeated Preston. Leeds have yet to concede a goal from open play in the league this season with the two they have coming from one set-piece and one penalty. Chris Wood has already scored once this season and he is averaging 3 shots per game. United have seen under 2.5 goals in six of their last seven matches against Fulham in all competitions. The Yorkshire outfit have conceded the first goal in three of their last four meetings.

Leeds United Team News

They have no registered injuries or suspensions.

Fulham Preview

It is two games and two draws for Fulham in the league after drawing their first game with Norwich and then their second with Reading. They will be looking to get their first three points of the season on board soon. The Cottagers are struggling to convert their chances with a conversion rate of just 8% in the league this season. Sone Aluko and Floyd Ayite are both averaging 2.5 shots per game yet have still not found the back of the net. In none of their last six head-to-heads have Fulham netted more than one goal. In two of their last three meetings they have found the back of the net in the final 15 minutes.

Fulham Team News

Tomas Kalas will miss the game through suspension.
