Leeds United entertain Norwich City in a top-of-the-table clash at Elland Road on Saturday evening. The Yorkshire outfit have produced a mixed run of results of late but they are still clinging onto the top position ahead of Norwich, who have similarly struggled to secure regular wins. Daniel Farke’s side are three points behind their weekend counterparts and stand a chance of topping the table with a victory.

Betting Tips for the game
Leeds returned to winning ways in the past weekend where they secured a 2-1 triumph over Rotherham United on the road. Mateusz Klich starred with a second half brace including an 86th-minute winner.
Norwich, meanwhile, went unbeaten for the fourth successive league game after their 2-2 draw against Sheffield United. They, however, have managed just one win in their undefeated run since the turn of the year.
The previous meeting between the sides was in August where Leeds romped to a comfortable 3-0 win at Carrow Road. Leeds’ last home game against Norwich saw them run out 1-0 victors 14 months ago. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a home win.

Norwich are given a price of 4.00 for the three points but the outcome appears unlikely against a Leeds side, who are difficult to overcome in their home patch. Norwich have gone through a similar trend to last season where they have regularly drawn games and this should provide Leeds the edge with five wins resulting from their past six matches at Elland Road. Our preview is to go with a Leeds win.

Leeds United vs Norwich City draw odds: 3.60
Norwich City win odds: 4.00
Correct Score odds
Leeds may be going through a rough phase in the Championship but their home form has been impressive with 12 points in the past five games with eight goals scored. In the same period, Norwich have remained unbeaten on the road, but a tally of just five goals in this period has limited them to seven points. Teemu Pukki’s presence in their ranks make Norwich likely to find the scoresheet at Leeds but the latter should come up triumphs with the better scoring prowess in front of their supporters. Our correct score prediction favours a Leeds 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Leeds have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their past four league games and each of those games have produced more than two goals. A similarly open contest can be witnessed this weekend, given both sides possess in-form strikers, who will be determined to lay their mark on the game. Our total goals prediction favours more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Kemar Roofe has been Leeds’ most effective option upfront and he has already netted 14 times this term. The ex-Oxford United man has scored just once in the past five games but that was the opening strike in the win over Derby County earlier in January. Roofe will be eyeing his maiden goal against Norwich. Our first goalscorer prediction fancies Roofe to return to scoring ways.
