Sheffield Wednesday vs Leeds United: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 37

The league favorites will visit Sheffield in an attempt to stop the Owls!

In a mouth watering clash of the EFL Championship Week 37, Leeds United will come to Hillsborough to face the red-hot Sheffield Wednesday. Match will begin on Friday, March 8 at 9pm CET.

Sheffield Wednesday

The Owls have not been back to the EPL since 2000, barely got promoted to the Championship last season and will try to retain that coveted spot this spring before getting up in 2025.

Possessing the worst offense in the league with 30 goals in 35 games (tied to a soon-to-be relegated Rotherham), Sheffield Wednesday, nonetheless, posted four wins in a row, massively improving their chance of survival in less than a month. 

Leeds United

The Whites got relegated from the Premier League last season, but with only ten games remaining in the season, they are eager to get back to the top flight after only a year of absence.

Ten wins in eleven Championship league games, including a Tuesday scrap by Stoke City at the Elland Road, allow Leeds to sit five points back from the leading Leicester City and only two - from the direct promotion slot, currently occupied by Ipswich Town. A comfortable schedule to finish the season allows the Whites to dream big, but dropping points, similar to their bout with Huddersfield Town last week, would not be ideal.

Prediction ⚽️

Especially, during their visit to Hillsborough, where the hosts, despite their four game winning streak, are still in the League One relegation zone.

Teams played to a scoreless tie in the first round and while Leeds United’ ambitions are crystal clear, we will side with the Owls to cover a (+1) handicap with 1.88 odds 🔥.
