F-uck this virus.First decent chance of getting out of this poxy league and the season could be declared void.It could only happen to leeds ffs.
We are making this promotion malarkey look easy over these last few weeks. Marcelo Bielsa’s men have won their last five consecutive games, they’re currently unbeaten in six and, they haven’t conceded a single goal in 515 minutes of football.
The Whites have propelled themselves into top spot ahead of this weekend’s fixtures and they will be looking to keep up their momentum right up until the end of the season.
Cardiff, on the other hand, are still chasing a play-off spot and they could improve their chances with a win over Leeds.
The Welsh side are on 54 points and sit ninth in the standings – just two points off the top six and those all-important play-off places.
On paper, most would be inclined to go with the bookies and back the visitors to pick up their sixth straight win. However, before you do just that, please consider the head to head record between both clubs.
Leeds have struggled against Cardiff in recent seasons and they haven’t beaten the Bluebirds since 2016.
Since then, four meetings have taken place with Cardiff winning three of them. Interestingly, the last encounter ended in a 3-3 draw back in December. Most fans will remember the drama of that game as Leeds squandered their three-nil lead.
Cardiff are coming off a 2-0 victory at Barnsley in their previous Championship fixture. Second half goals from Will Vaulks and Callum Paterson were enough to earn the Bluebirds the win.
It was the first victory in five matches for Cardiff who have not been at their best in recent weeks. Neil Harris’ men have been particularly poor at home and head into Sunday’s match winless in their last five home matches.
Leeds earned a 2-0 victory over Huddersfield in their previous Championship fixture. Luke Ayling opened the scoring early in the first half while Patrick Bamford added the second.
The Whites have been near perfect in recent weeks and are now one point clear at the top of the table. Marcelo Bielsa’s men have won their last five matches without conceding, knocking off the likes of Bristol City, Reading and Middlesbrough.

Forwards Lee Tomlin and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing remain sidelined with injury and will miss Sunday’s match. Striker Isaac Vassell suffered a setback on his return with the U23s and has now been ruled out for the rest of the season.
Leeds Team News
Goalkeeper Kiko Casilla serves the third of an eight-match suspension while midfielder Adam Forshaw remains sidelined with injury. Forward Jean-Kevin Augustin is also ruled out of Sunday’s match due to injury.
I predict Leeds storming into an 8-0 lead only to draw with a late Cardiff equalizer
