The away team is currently in the 12th position of the league, with 29 points won, after 8 wins, 5 draws and 7 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Barnsley, by (3‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Stoke City, by (2‑1).

Hull City's team enters this game with a 2-1 triumph in the reception to Stoke, returning to the triumphs after the defeat against Barnsley: the two goals of the team were signed by Bowen. Coach Grant McCann must keep a more backward team, waiting for the opponent in his defensive midfield. The extreme Grosicki deserves all the prominence so far, he is a player who is very fast and strong in the counterattack. On the other hand, Bowen is the top scorer of this club with 14 goals signed. For this game the visiting coach cannot count on Stewart, Magennis, Balogh and Toral, all with physical problems.

Confirmed Lineup: G. Long, C. Elder, J. de Wijs, R. Burke, E. Lichaj, J. Irvine, D. Batty, Leonardo Lopes, J. Bowen, K. Grosicki, T. Eaves.
Coach: G. McCann.

Betting suggestion:

Leeds usually has good performances at the games in their stadium and in this game the tendency is to continue. It should be noted that the home team arrives at this game very motivated after adding the sixth consecutive win in this competition. On the other hand, the visitors present a roster with several offensive quality options, being expected to create several chances to score goals. In this way, and taking into account also the strong most offensive sectors, we believe that betting in favor of the market ‘plus 2.5 goals’ is a good option.
