Sheffield United faces Leeds United on Sunday, September 27th at Bramall Lane for an English Premier League match.
Sheffield United has had a rough start to the season, as the club has yet to score a goal in the first two matches of the Premier League season. Sheffield United dropped its first match of the season by the final score of 2-0 to Wolverhampton. Sheffield United was not sharp at all in that match, even on its home pitch. Sheffield United then lost its second match to Aston Villa on the road by a score of 1-0. The lack of offense for Sheffield United is definitely worrisome, but it is still very early in the season. Sheffield United needs to find the back of the net early in this match against a Leeds United club that Sheffield United can certainly compete with. Another loss for Sheffield United could put the club in a very deep hole very early in the season.
Leeds United has been an exciting club to watch so far this season. Leeds United has already conceded seven goals in only two matches, but the club has also scored seven goals. Leeds United gave Liverpool a run for its money in the first match of the season at Anfield, as Liverpool was able to escape with a 4-3 win. Leeds United was able to find its first win of the season by that same of 4-3 score over Fulham on September 19th. Leeds United is now looking to take advantage of yet another feasible club in Sheffield United, but the defense will have to step up a bit. Leeds United cannot afford to play in offensive shootout after offensive shootout, so a more well-structured match should be expected on Sunday from Leeds.
The last time Sheffield United and Leeds United met was on March 16th of 2019 in English League Championship play. Sheffield United was victorious in that match by the final score of 1-0.
I am going to take the over in this match, as I think that both teams will find the back of the net at least once, maybe even twice. I could see a 2-1, 2-2, or even 3-2 match here, so I will take the over 2.5 goals on Sunday.
