Leeds United vs. Brentford: Championship – Match Preview

Leeds United will likely have dropped off top spot by the time they play their game in hand with Brentford on Wednesday evening.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men have made a good start to the 18-19 campaign, claiming seven points from their first three matches.

Last time out they won 2-0 away at Wigan Athletic, with Patrick Bamford scoring both goals.

Brentford have won one, drew one and lost one of their opening three games, having been held at home by Hull City on the weekend.

Their only victory so far this campaign has come on the road following a 1-0 win away at Middlesbrough.

Match history
Brentford’s 2-0 win over Leeds United last season effectively ended the latter’s automatic promotion hopes.

Leeds have lost three of their last five league meetings with Brentford, however are unbeaten in four at home to the Bees.

Draw HT / Leeds United FT – 15/4 with Bet Victor

Team news
Helder Costa is likely to be a substitute again for Leeds United, with Jack Harrison likely to continue.

They could name the same XI that beat Wigan, meaning the Arsenal loanee Edward Nketiah will be on the bench.

Former Leeds United defender Pontius Jansson will make his first return to Elland Road since leaving the club for Brentford in the summer.

Key player Said Benrahma is still probably short of the required fitness to start.

Expected starting XI’s
Leeds United (4-3-3): Casilla; Dallas, White, Cooper, Douglas; Phillips, Forshaw, Klich; Hernandez, Bamford, Harrison
Brentford (3-4-3): Raya; Jeanvier, Jansson, Racic; Dalsgaard, Jensen, Norgaard, Henry; Canos, Watkins, Mbeumo
