Leeds vs Bristol City Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips


Leeds are set to improve their promotion chances when they host Bristol City in an English Championship fixture at Elland Road. Having struggled on the road in recent weeks, Leeds will be pleased to return home against an inconsistent Bristol side.

Leeds Form


A poor run of results has seen Leeds’ 11 point cushion inside the top two evaporate in recent weeks. They have several teams breathing down their necks and need a win to maintain their push for automatic promotion.

Leeds have struggled on the road and were held to a 1-1 draw at Brentford in their last EFL Championship match. Key to their survival quest is their home form as they are unbeaten in 10 of their last 12 matches at Elland Road.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men have claimed seven wins in their last 12 home matches and will be hopeful of recapturing the form that saw them defeat Championship leaders West Brom. They have been hampered by defensive problems in recent weeks and are without a clean sheet in their last five home matches. 

Leeds News


Adam Forshaw is ruled out for Leeds through injury but left back Barry Douglas is in line to make his return. Marcelo Bielsa is desperate to turn the club’s fortunes around and could ring in the changes on Saturday.

Bristol City Form


Bristol City slipped outside the top six following a 3-1 home defeat against Birmingham. They failed to build on Jamie Paterson’s early opener and finished the match with just two attempts on target.

The Robins have been inconsistent on their travels and have failed to win in eight of their last 13 away matches. Lee Johnson’s men have suffered defeats to the big sides in that run, losing 4-1 at West Brom while also falling 1-0 at Sheffield Wednesday.

Bristol City News


Bristol City are without midfielders Marley Watkins and Kasey Palmer who remain sidelined with injury. Tomas Kalas is close to a return but Saturday’s match could come too soon for the Czech defender. 

Leeds vs Bristol City Head to Head


Leeds have a 13-5 advantage with five draws from 23 previous matches against Bristol City. The Whites have won five of the last six meetings, including a 3-1 victory in the reverse fixture at Ashton Gate. 

Pablo Hernandez, Patrick Bamford and Jack Harrison were all on target for Leeds while Andreas Weimann struck a late consolation.

Leeds vs Bristol City Betting Odds


Leeds are short priced for the win with Betway offering odds of 1.40. William Hill is paying 8.00 for a Bristol City victory while a draw is set at 5.00 at betfair.

The reverse fixture produced over 3.5 goals and a similar outcome is priced at 2.88. Over 2.5 goals is valued at 1.70 while BTTS is set at odds of 1.97.

Leeds vs Bristol City Match Up


Patrick Bamford remains the go-to-man for Leeds with the striker looking to add to his 12 goals this season. The striker was also on target in the reverse and will be confident of getting past the Bristol City defence. 

Leeds’ recent defensive problems mean they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five home matches. They are likely to struggle against Nahki Wells and Famara Diedhiou in attack for Bristol City.
