Leeds United vs Stoke City: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 36

The Whites' quest for promotion continues!

As Leeds United’s winning streak came to a screeching halt last week, it’s time for the Whites to host Stoke City, trying to keep their spot in the EFL Championship. Match will begin at Elland Road on Tuesday, March 5, at 6:45pm CET.

Leeds United

As Leeds was furious at the Premier League last season for their inability to deduct points from Everton in time, it’s all a moot point now, since the Whites are back in the EPL race.

Team won nine straight games in the EFL Championship before finally playing to a draw in a West Yorkshire derby against Huddersfield Town, as Leeds United now trails not only Leicester City, but Ipswich Town by two points. With 11 games remaining, however, there is more than enough time to make up for that.

Stoke City

While there are no rainy nights in Stoke anymore in the Premier League, a team from Stoke-on-Trent has become a staple of the EFL Championship after the 2017-2018 season.

Despite being unable to finish in the upper half of the table ever since, Stoke City is yet to be relegated to League One, as they will try to repeat the feat this year. Right now, the Potters are right on the brink, even after the victory against Middlesbrough, but a few victories might right the ship for good.

Prediction ⚽️

In the first round, Stoke City secured a «1-0» victory, but it has been a completely revitalized Leeds United squad in the calendar 2024.

Stoke City lost three road games in a row, at Sunderland, Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City, and their visit to Elland Road might be the fourth, as we will bet on Leeds United to cover the (-1) spread with 1.52 odds 🔥.
