Our match prediction:
After failing to impress against QPR at Loftus Road Stadium, Leeds United will be aiming to give fans some cheer when they welcome Birmingham City at their Elland Road in their first home game of the season. The Whites experienced all sorts of problems in the 3-0 loss to QPR and they especially struggled at the back. However, it is well known that the club chiefs did well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window and we predict that Leeds United are capable of beating Birmingham City, who often struggle on the road. The Blues shared the spoils with Cardiff City in their opener, but we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from Saturday’s football match against Gary Monk’s charges. When the two teams met at St. Andrew’s Stadium earlier in 2016 Leeds United recorded a 2-1 win over Birmingham City, with Stuart Dallas scoring a brace for the Whites.
Highlighted Team (Birmingham City):
Birmingham City are a club located in the city of Birmingham, England. Birmingham City were founded in 1875 as Small Heath Alliance, but the club’s named was changed to Small Heath in 1888. 17 years later they became Birmingham and in 1943 they finally changed their name to Birmingham City. The Blues welcome their rivals at St. Andrew’s, the stadium that was opened in 1906. Birmingham City compete in the Championship and their fiercest rivals are WBA and Aston Villa. The Blues made it to the FA Cup final twice, but they have yet to win the prestigious trophy. In 1931 they were beaten by their local rivals WBA in the title game (1-2), whilst in 1956 they were outplayed by Manchester City in the title game. The colour of Birmingham’s home kit is blue with white stripe. Trevor Francis, Gil Merrick, Bob Latchford, Jeff Hall, Alex Govan, Joe Bradford and Christophe Dugarry are notable footballers who played for the St. Andrew’s outfit in the past.
