Wolverhampton vs Leeds Predictions
- BT Sport 1
- Both teams have scored in five of Leeds’ last seven Premier League away games.
- Leeds have scored in all but one of their 12 Premier League away games this season.
- Leeds have kept just two clean sheets in their last nine away fixtures.
- Wolves have won just two of their last eight home league assignments.
Leeds guarantee excitement
Leeds have gathered plenty of admirers for their cavalier approach since their promotion, and the Yorkshiremen’s commitment to attack could produce goals at both ends when they visit Molineux on Friday.
Marcelo Bielsa’s charges were four goals down at Arsenal in their last assignment before they knocked in two second half consolation efforts at the Emirates Stadium, and that was the fifth time in seven away fixtures involving Leeds where both teams notched.
The result also meant that Leeds had scored at least twice in five of their last six tests away from Elland Road, and their potency on the road could fire them to a better result at Molineux.
Wolves unlikely win
Wolves bust a few coupons with their 2-1 triumph at Southampton last time out, just days after they were completely outplayed by the Saints in the FA Cup.
Just like their contentious victory over Arsenal at the start of the month, Wanderers needed a few decisions to go their way to claim three points against Ralph Hasenhüttl’s rattled side however.
Both teams to get in on the act
Leeds only know one way to play and the Yorkshiremen will arrive in the West Midlands ready to attack in numbers.
United have hit the net in all but one of their 12 Premier League away games since their promotion back to the big time, and they should register again against a Wolves defence that has kept just one clean sheet in their last eight attempts at Molineux.
Leeds have shipped more goals on the road than any other team in the division this term however, and while Wolves certainly aren’t prolific without the injured Raul Jimenez, they will have chances to impact the scoresheet this week.
Backing both teams to score on Friday looks a smart play at the prices on offer then, though our 2-1 correct score prediction tips Leeds to eventually carve out a victory.
Wolves needed a helping hand from the officials in each of their last two Premier League wins, though their luck can’t last forever, and a Leeds team that has won two of their last three away tussles, can take advantage.
