Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds United Preview

Sheffield Wednesday head into this game currently placed in 7th position of the league table on 42pts having secured 11 wins, 9 draws and 6 defeats. A victory in this game on Saturday lunch time against Leeds United could move Carlos Carvalhal’s side into 5th position and with the club having secured a 3-2 win earlier in the week against Bolton Wanderers, both the fans and players will be in high spirits for this one.

Leeds United head into the game currently placed in 15th position of the league table on 32pts having secured 7 wins, 11 draws and 8 defeats and with a 2-1 loss midweek away against Ipswich Town, the players will obviously be suffering from a bit of confidence and with just one win in their last five matches, the visitors will have to be at their very best to come away from this game with the victory.

Sheffield Wednesday Team News:

The hosts will be without the services of Keiren Westwood, Tom Lees and Michael Turner for this game as they all continue to receive treatment for respective injury related problems. Sam Hutchinson could return having missed the previous two matches. Forestieri and Hooper are both carrying minor knocks and will undertake a late fitness test to determine whether they can be involved.

Leeds United Team News:

The visitors have no new fresh injury problems to their squad and are hoping that striker Chris Wood can overcome a hamstring problem to lead their attack up front on Saturday afternoon. Wood has missed the last three games for his club due to his hamstring problem and will undertake a late fitness test to see if he can feature.

Mustapha Carayol looks likely to feature for his third consecutive game after arriving at the club on loan from Middlesbrough and both Luke Murphy and Sol Bamba will be pushing for starts.

Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds United Head to Head Statistics:

Saturday’s lunch time game from Hillsborough stadium will become the 67th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Sheffield Wednesday have won 19 times with 12 of those having came with home advantage where as Leeds United have managed 30 victories, with 12 of those having came away from home.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, recent meetings between the two clubs shows neither side with any real clear advantage as they have both one a game each and the remaining three having finished all square.

22/08/15 CHA Leeds United – Sheffield Wednesday 1 : 1
25/04/14 CHA Sheffield Wednesday – Leeds United
1 : 2
04/10/14 CHA Leeds United – Sheffield Wednesday
1 : 1
11/01/14 CHA Sheffield Wednesday – Leeds United 6 : 0
17/08/13 CHA Leeds United – Sheffield Wednesday

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

196 Goals have been scored in the previous 67 meetings between the two clubs and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.93.

95 of those Goals have came in the 33 previous matches played at Hillsborough Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 2.88.

Based on both sets of data shown above, it does seem to indicate that this game should see at least a couple of goals scored and betting markets like Both Teams to Score and Total Match Goals 2 or 3 look the best options for this one.

Sheffield Wednesday v Leeds United Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Sheffield Wednesday are looking very strong candidates for an end of season play off promotion place, but will also be fully aware that if they can continue their excellent recent form then automatic promotion is still certainly within their reach and the hosts do look the more likely winners of this match from what we have seen from both clubs this season.

Leeds United suffered only their third defeat away from home this season in the league after losing their midweek match against Ipswich Town 2-1 and although they do have a good record against Sheffield Wednesday over the years at Hillsbrough Stadium I just don’t see their attacking lineup being strong enough for them to win this match, unless a certain Chris Wood is passed fit and plays.

Onto some predictions then and with some players still not 100% confirmed to pass their late fitness tests the sensible option here from a betting point if view does seem to the be goals markets and as such my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score as this fits in nicely with the predicted average goals per game statistics.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Sheffield Wednesday striker Fernando Forestieri to scored the first goal of the game as he currently scored eight first goals of the match from his total of eleven scored this season and looks good value to add to that come Saturday afternoon.
