Leeds United and Brentford face off on Sunday in an English Premier League showdown at Elland Road. When these two teams faced off in February of 2020 the two teams played to a 1-1 draw.
Brentford comes into this game sitting in 13th place in the standings having picked up 16 points. Brentford has picked up at least one point in two of the last three games. In the last game against Tottenham though, the offense couldn’t get anything going and that led to the 2-0 defeat. A few games ago against Newcastle, Brentford put up three goals and they need to get that strong offense back on track. Brentford has scored 17 goals total while their defense has given up 19 goals total. Ivan Toney has been the best player scoring four goals and adding two assists.
On the other side of this matchup is Leeds United who sits in 16th place in the standings having picked up 15 points. Over the last two games, Leeds United has picked four points total and the defense has given up zero goals. Three games ago against Tottenham the defense gave up two goals and that led to the 2-1 defeat. Leeds has scored 13 goals total while their defense has given up 20 goals. Raphael Dias Belloli has been the best player for Leeds scoring six goals. No other player on the team has scored more than two goals and the offense can’t be a concern for this team if they want to get the job done.
Both offenses are going to have issues getting going in this game and that is going to lead to a lower-scoring game. I wouldn’t be shocked if this game finishes 0-0 and neither team gets good scoring chances. Back the under.
