Both these sides are coming into this fixture off the back of a domestic win, while Leicester have also taken six points from their two Europa League games so far so have some momentum at the moment.
Leeds have struggled for consistency in results on their return to top-flight football, though in fairness their only defeats have come by narrow margins to last year’s champions Liverpool and a tricky Wolves side, while they also took a point from Man City so are more than capable of getting something here.
The Foxes won’t roll over easily though, and under Brendan Rogers they’ve gone W6-D1-L1 up against promoted opposition, winning each of the last three to nil.
Having said that, Leeds under Marcelo Bielsa are no ordinary promoted side and we’ll take that record with a pinch of salt especially at Elland Road.
Under 2.5 Goals
It’s hard to know what you’re going to get with this Whites side, and while they can be extremely solid at the back on occasion, they can also leak goals when the game gets opened up, as they showed with 14 goals from their opening two fixtures.
However, since then there’s been just seven goals across their most recent four outings, and despite the attacking talent and flair on both sides, this could be a cagey and tactical affair to be separated by fine margins.
The fact that there have only been five goals in total across the visitors’ last three matches also suggests this won’t be a goal fest so at an odds-against price it’s certainly worth backing a low scoring affair to end the weekend.
While this is the first meeting between these two in the top tier of English football since the 2003/04 season, there’s been numerous meetings since then at Championship level.
Indeed, there’s been just eight goals in total over the last six meetings, with only one of those games seeing more than two goals.
While that shouldn’t be read into too much considering the squads and backroom staff are completely different now at both clubs, it serves to support recent cagey affairs and we’ll jump on the trend as goals start to become few and far between after a flurry at the beginning of the season.
