Leeds United vs Rotherham United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture is a Yorkshire derby and sees the side who are favourites to win the league against the outsiders. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Leeds made it three wins in three in all competitions on Tuesday night as they beat Bolton 2-1 in the League Cup. In the league, they were last in action last weekend where they hammered Derby 4-1 thanks to a Kemar Roofe brace. Rotherham had a successful week following their league success last weekend with Jamie Proctor grabbing a brace in a 3-1 League Cup victory over Wigan. That followed on from a 1-0 defeat of Ipswich in the Championship thanks to a late Michael Smith goal. These two sides always have a passionate meeting in an all Yorkshire encounter and it is the Whites who have won the last two and three of the last four. The Millers though have lost just two of their last five at Elland Road.

Betting Tips and Predictions

I could not put anyone off backing Leeds to win the game but to get more value on the price I recommend taking them to be ahead at half-time and then again full-time. It has been 2-0 to United at half-time in two of their three this season and 2-1 in the other so back the opening 45 minutes to have over 1.5 goals.

Leeds United Preview

The Whites have started the season well winning both league games netting seven times and conceding just once. They have now seen over 2.5 goals and both teams score in all three fixtures this season. At Elland Road, they have been 2-0 ahead at half-time in both their fixtures played this season. When combined with last season it is now five without defeat at Elland Road in the Championship for United. Mateusz Klich has found the back of the net in both league fixtures they have played this season. Two of three in all competitions that Leeds have conceded this season have come in the second-half.

Leeds United Team News

Stuart Dallas (thigh) is expected to miss out.

Rotherham United Preview

The Millers bounced back from an opening day hammering at Brentford and if you add in the results from their last time in this division they have lost just one of four. Just one of their last five and four of their last 14 at this level have gone over 2.5 goals. Away from the New York Stadium, they have not won a Championship road game since April 2016. United though have at least managed to net at least once in each of their last five on the road. The two league goals that Rotherham have scored this season have both come in the 90th minute. Jamie Proctor grabbed two in midweek and he will hope that will help him break into the starting 11 this weekend.

Rotherham United Team News

They have no registered injuries or suspensions ahead of this fixture.
