Over 2.5 Match Goals

Leeds 2-1

Reason for tip

Leeds have conceded at least twice in each of their last five home games but they may be able to stop that run against an often blunt Cardiff that have fired blanks in four of their last six away trips.

Leeds vs Cardiff Predictions

  • the home side on the day scored 2+ goals in Cardiff’s last five FA Cup games held on a Wednesday.
  • Cardiff have scored 3+ goals in each of their last three FA Cup replays.
  • Cardiff have failed to win despite leading beyond the 80th minute in their last two games.

A welcome distraction

With both Leeds and Cardiff sailing a little close to the respective drop zones in the Premier League and the Championship, they  could have really done with finding a winner in the first encounter earlier this month.

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch is currently overseeing a woeful seven-game winless run and this game perhaps provides him with the opportunity to boost his side’s confidence. Leeds have got fighting spirit in bags as shown by their amazing fightback from 2-0 down to draw against Cardiff, which they then followed up with another encouraging fight in their 2-1 defeat against Aston Villa.

Hope is in short supply across the border as Cardiff parted ways with manager Mark Hudson following a nine-game unbeaten run in all competitions. Neil Warnock is tipped for a sensational return to management for ‘one last job’ after announcing his retirement last year.

Going for goals

Dean Whitehead will take charge of Cardiff in the interim and given that Cardiff have scored at least three times in each of their last three FA Cup replays suggests that this could be another high-tempo affair between two struggling sides.

We’re going for over 2.5 goals in this intriguing FA Cup replay, with a smaller stakes selection going the way of a 2-1 Leeds victory in the correct score market. In truth, the Premier League quality should show through here at Elland Road in what is a brilliant opportunity for the home side to end their long winless run.
