Leeds v Middlesbrough tips: Bielsa’s boys to hold onto top spot?
First meet second in Friday’s night’s big Championship game, as Leeds United host Middlesbrough at Elland Road.
Both sides are unbeaten and have picked up 13 points from their first five league fixtures. Whoever wins will open up a two-point lead at the top of the table.
It’s all set up for a great game and we’ve got all the odds for you…
Marcelo Bielsa’s side are the division’s highest scorers so far. Middlesbrough have the meanest defence. Which approach will come out on top? Our traders go 8/11 for Both Teams to Score and 5/2 for Leeds and Over 2.5 Goals.
Bielsa will name his strongest side here after making plenty of changes for Leeds’ midweek cup loss to Preston North End.
He’ll want his side to control the game, using their passing and movement to unlock the Boro defence.
Tony Pulis will expect a much more convincing showing from his side than they produced against West Bromwich Albion. He could give Muhamed Besic his first league start of the season to add extra bite in midfield.
