Betting prediction: Leeds United 0-1 Watford

Things are hardly going to plan for Leeds United at the minute, and Marcelo Bielsa’s winless Whites will have a tricky side to negotiate in mid-table outfit Watford at Elland Road this weekend. With three key players out – including Patrick Bamford – Leeds could struggle to find three points here and Watford can hardly be underestimated having picked up four points from six in their last two fixtures. A sneaky win for the Hornets could result, especially if Ismaïla Sarr is in the mood.

Leeds United vs Watford: Recommended bets

Result/Both Teams to Score: Watford – No (15/2 odds)

A potential big pay out can be found here if Watford secure an upset at Elland Road against a Leeds side that will be bereft of Patrick Bamford and are hardly in any semblance of form. Leeds will always be capable under Bielsa, but we have yet to see a typical performance from them this term.

To Score Anytime: Ismaïla Sarr (3/1 odds)

Four goals in six outings puts Watford’s mercurial winger Sarr joint-fourth in the Premier League goal charts thus far in 2021-22. The tricky Senegalese wide man has been at the heart of everything positive seen from the Hornets in the final third this term, and with Leeds missing both Robin Koch and Luke Ayling, his ability to roam into dangerous areas could well find him on the end of a decent chance at Elland Road.

Leeds United vs Watford: Match preview

Leeds United on the cusp of unwanted record

To say that Leeds United are going through a sophomore slump in their second season back in the Premier League would be a massive understatement. No wins and just three points from their opening six fixtures, while boasting the joint-second worst defensive record in the league, is hardly the way the club would have hoped to kick on after a brilliant 2020-21 campaign.

Should the Whites fail to win tomorrow at Elland Road, it will mark the first time in the club’s history in the top flight of English football that they will have gone winless in the first seven fixtures of the season.

Patrick Bamford once again missing out on proceedings will hardly instill confidence of securing three points, though the England international has just one goal thus far this season. Raphinha and his three goals (50% of the club’s return) will once again be tasked with being the influential attacking threat for Bielsa as goals have been hard to come by this season.

Watford could climb into the top-half after decent start to the season

Seven points from the opening six matches of the season is a halfway decent return for Watford and boss Xisco, as the Hornets try to to avoid the drop in 2021-22.

Buoyed by the ever-present Ismaïla Sarr, Watford – who have taken four points from their last six – look better than the sum of their parts under the Spaniard, and head into their away day at Elland Road at the perfect time, given Leeds’ struggles at the beginning of the campaign.

Should their points return thus far be extrapolated out, Watford will sit on 44-points come the end of the season. If last term is anything to go by, that total will be good enough for around 14th in the table while comfortably avoiding relegation. At current, that is all the Hornets can ask for as they look to re-establish their Premier League credentials after a 5-year stint in the league was ended in 2019-20.


 

Leeds United team news vs Watford

Marcelo Bielsa remains without key striker Patrick Bamford as Leeds look to finally get the engine started this season.

The Argentine headmaster also remains without defensive pair Robin Koch and Luke Ayling, though Diego Llorente is expected to make his return. Raphinha should too be available.

Watford team news vs Leeds United

Watford boss Xisco has just one absence to concern himself with, as summer signing Peter Etebo will be out for multiple months after sustaining a serious injury.

Both Tom Cleverley and Daniel Bachmann are back with the squad and Cleverley should feature in the XI given Etebo’s long-term absence, but many expect Ben Foster to retain his spot as starting keeper.
