On Saturday, October 2, the 7th round fixtures of the English Premier League will continue with a match in Leeds. The football teams of Leeds United and Watford will play against each other at the Elland Road Stadium at 17:00 Moscow time on this game day.
Now we bring to your attention our prediction for the Leeds United vs Watford match. Judging from the fact that the hosts have nowhere to retreat further, we look forward to seeing a difficult and very interesting match.
Marcelo Bielsa’s team is doing very badly this season. After 6 games played, his boys have only 3 points — no victory yet! The team’s achievement of draws in three matches has kept the club from climbing above 18th in the standings. Moreover, the team’s performance does not allow us to count on radical changes for the better in the near future. In their last played match of the 6th round, Bielsa’s team lost 1-2 at home to West Ham.
Unlike their future rivals, Chisco Muñoz‘s charges could be said to be feeling a little more confident. The team has 7 points and 12th position in the standings. As for the results on the football field, there is nothing to boast about. Watford’s game is sorely lacking stability. Victories are followed by losses and draws. In the 6th round, Muñoz’s team managed to achieve a 1-1 draw with great difficulty in their match against Newcastle.
In official competitions and tournaments, the Leeds and Watford teams have met each other 24 times. In 8 matches, the victory was on the side of Leeds, while in 11 matches, the Watford team was successful. The teams drew in five matches.
We will not guess which team will be stronger. Our reason is that both the hosts and guests have chances of winning the match. The fact that the match will be stubborn is understandable. We suggest focusing on the goals to be scored by both teams in the Leeds United vs Watford match.
Probable result – Both teams will score.
