Cardiff City host table-toppers Leeds United on Sunday as Championship action resumes – here is all the information you need to know ahead of the highly anticipated kick-off.
Leeds United will be looking forward to continuing their rich vein of form which has seen them claim top spot in England’s second division up to now.
Marco Bielsa’s men who are above second-place West Bromwich Albion by only one point will be eager to not let their slender advantage slip.
Cardiff City, who were relegated from the Premier League in the 2018/19 season currently find themselves in 9th spot.
Neil Harris will have an easy job of motivating his place with an all-important play-off place still up for grabs with the season returning. The Bluebirds will definitely have their targets set on a topflight return.
The two sides could not be separated when they collided earlier in the campaign, in what could go down as one of the games of the season.
The Elland Road crowd witnessed a thrilling 3-3 encounter, but it looked like United would win the game with ease after cruising into a comfortable 3-0 lead after 52 minutes. Three goals in the last 30 minutes were enough to drag the Bluebirds back into the game to secure themselves a well-earned point on the road.
Heading into the game I think it will end in a Leeds United win by a scoreline of 2-0.
The Yorkshire clubs winning mentality which has seen them rack up an impressive 21 victories after 37 games will be enough to see them prevail against a Cardiff side which has leaked goals this season.
With the likes of Patrick Bamford, who scored twice when the sides met earlier this season, leading their line I can see Leeds claiming another crucial win in their Premier League push.
