Leeds vs Rotherham Prediction & Betting tips
Leeds United will receive Rotherham United on Elland Road on Saturday. The hosts have started the competition excellently with six points from two matches. The guests scored three points after two matches. What can we expect during this game?
Leeds United won last Saturday from Derby County. In an entertaining game, it won 1-4 against team manager Frank Lampard. Leeds started the game excellently and after five minutes of play, he already led 0-1 by a goal by Mateusz Klich. Tom Lawrence quickly drew the equalizer from a free kick in which goalkeeper Peacock – Farrell did not look good. Halfway through the first half, striker Kemar Roofe of Leeds headed the 1-2 against the ropes. He headed the ball in a brilliant way against the goal. After rest, Roofe showed his enormous potential again. He chopped and turned some center defenders mad and shot sublime 1-3. Alioski completed the quartet of Leeds simply by tapping the 1-4.
Afterwards, the Argentinian coach Marcelo Bielsa was delighted with the victory: “We have played better than at home against Stoke, but it is still too premature to draw conclusions. Only after twenty-three games you can draw up a realistic stand and after forty-six matches. There were times when Derby got opportunities and that we were able to get away at times. ”
Midfielder Mateusz Klich expressed himself in similar terms: ‘We have now played two matches well, but there are still forty-four to go.’
Leeds has, like every potential champion team, agreed internally that they are going from match to match. This, of course, to preserve the peace around the club.
Rotherham United won Ipswich Town 1-0 last weekend. For a long time, the match seemed to be heading for a goalless draw, but deep into the injury time, Michael Smith became Rotherham match winner. Actually no one had counted on this anymore. Ipswich was by far the better team of the two, especially in the first half. Rotherham was at times sent from the cupboard to the wall.
Manager Paul Warne was delighted with the victory: “We have fought to stay in the race. I found Ipswich playing excellent in the first half. In the rest I have expressed confidence in the players. The second half was much better. A point might have been a good result in this game, but these are two bonus points that we get so late in the game. I can still remember a match of three seasons ago against Wolverhampton Wanderers. We were leading 2-0, but eventually it was 2-2. Then you walk down the field and you lose two points. Today you take three points and these are very important. ‘
Rotherham also needed these points, as in the first round, Brentford lost 5-1. The expectation is that despite the victory Rotherham will have to fight against relegation this season.
