Swansea City vs Leeds United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) game is live on SKY SPORTS and features two sides who have yet to lose in the league this season. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Swansea kept their unbeaten run going with a goalless draw away to Birmingham on Friday evening. They were a little lucky to come away with a point from this game when looking at the expected goals data. Leeds were made to wait before eventually coming through 2-0 in their home fixture with Rotherham. Luke Ayling put them ahead just after half-time and then Kemar Roofe secured all three points 19 minutes from the end. These two sides last met in 2010/11 season so it is hard to read too much into their head-to-head record. For what it is worth the home side has won each of the last six meetings between them.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The visitors are the favourites for the game and having won away at Derby it is hard to argue with that. If pushed I would lean towards the road side but prefer other markets to find the value. Swansea have conceded just once all season and look a well-drilled unit under Graham Potter. The chances are they will concede possession and look to hit Leeds on the counter. United for their part struggled to break down Rotherham at the weekend and as such this might not be a goal feast. This leads towards under 2.5 goals while under 1.5 goals has paid in two of three the Swans have played so far so could also be worth an interest.

Swansea City Preview

The Swans have made a decent start to life in the Championship picking up seven points from their opening three games. They sit in seventh though the expected goals data suggests this is a tad fortunate and has them down in tenth. At the Liberty Stadium, they have won their only encounter this season which put to an end a run of five without a victory (losing four of these). If you add in the Premier League then just one of the last five the Welsh side have played at their own ground have gone over 2.5 goals. No side has better Championship defensive record than Swansea this season who have conceded just one goal. Ollie McBurnie has only netted once this campaign (he has a missed penalty) but with two shots per game is their main attacking threat.

Swansea City Team News

Kristoffer Nordfelt (groin) and Declan John (back) are doubts while Wilfried Bony (cruciate) is out for a few months.

Leeds United Preview

It is three games and three victories for Leeds who sit second will move top and above Middlesbrough with a win here in their game in hand. The expected goals data though suggests they are also being a little lucky and has them down in eighth. Away from Elland Road, they have played once this season winning 4-1 at Derby which put to an end a run of 11 without a win on the road in the league. Seven of the last nine on their travels for the Yorkshire outfit have gone over 2.5 goals. Kemar Roofe has started the season well and he has netted three times while Mateusz Klich has two in three. Leeds have scored on four occasions this campaign in the twenty minutes that follow the half-time interval.

Leeds United Team News

Stuart Dallas (thigh) is expected to miss another few weeks of action.
