Leeds United look to regain top spot when they host Swansea City at the Elland Road on Thursday night. Marcelo Bielsa saw his team drop to second place in the table as they failed to match Norwich’s results during the weekend. Swansea City remain with a chance of sneaking into the play-offs with the team only six points behind Bristol, who occupy the final play-off spot as of now.

Swansea did extremely well to pick up their second clean sheet in five matches during the weekend, but there were plenty of nervous moments for the Welsh team. Leeds United had to go through more dropped points during the weekend, but the late leveller against Middlesbrough coupled with a deep desire to stay in touch with Norwich will drive the visitors to a win. Leeds United can potentially reclaim the top spot in the table with a victory. Our preview would pick a victory for Leeds.

Correct Score odds
Leeds United have been decent in front of goal throughout the campaign and there is little to demarcate the team in terms of home and away form. Swansea have been able to come up with some brilliant performance of football, and they have not found it difficult to score even in away matches. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-1 win for Leeds United.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Marcelo Bielsa’s high-intensity tactics has not been exactly rewarded in terms of defensive solidarity over the last month, as Leeds have managed only one clean sheet in the last 10 matches. Swansea’s style of play is such that the club will fancy their chances of scoring for a ninth time in 10 away matches. Our total goals prediction would go up for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Leeds have had five different scorers in the last four league matches but Kemar Roofe still remains as the leading scorer for the team with 14 league goals. The forward is comfortably ahead of his teammates at Leeds United, but he has not scored since the opening goal against Derby County a month ago. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Kemar Roofe.
