Cardiff vs Leeds Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Leeds will attempt to strengthen their grip at the top of the table when they travel to the Cardiff City Stadium for an English Championship fixture against Cardiff. Leeds are on a five-match winning run and should have too much for the Bluebirds.

Cardiff Form

Cardiff are coming off a 2-0 victory at Barnsley in their previous Championship fixture. Second half goals from Will Vaulks and Callum Paterson were enough to earn the Bluebirds the win.

It was the first victory in five matches for Cardiff who have not been at their best in recent weeks. Neil Harris’ men have been particularly poor at home and head into Sunday’s match winless in their last five home matches.

Cardiff News

Forwards Lee Tomlin and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing remain sidelined with injury and will miss Sunday’s match. Striker Isaac Vassell suffered a setback on his return with the U23s and has now been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Leeds Form

Leeds earned a 2-0 victory over Huddersfield in their previous Championship fixture. Luke Ayling opened the scoring early in the first half while Patrick Bamford added the second.

The Whites have been near perfect in recent weeks and are now one point clear at the top of the table. Marcelo Bielsa’s men have won their last five matches without conceding, knocking off the likes of Bristol City, Reading and Middlesbrough.

Leeds News

Goalkeeper Kiko Casilla serves the third of an eight-match suspension while midfielder Adam Forshaw remains sidelined with injury.  Forward Jean-Kevin Augustin is also ruled out of Sunday’s match due to injury.

Cardiff vs Leeds Match Up 

Cardiff are depleted in attack with Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Lee Tomlin both out injured. Callum Patterson has scored just once in his last five appearances while Robert Glatzel is currently on a seven-match goal drought.

Leeds’ recent form has been built on a sturdy defence with centre backs Ben White and Liam Cooper helping the team to five straight clean sheets. They still carry a major threat in attack with Tyler Roberts and Patrick Bamford who have been among the goals lately.
