Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Elland Road when Leeds United and Swansea City face each other in the Championship derby on Matchday 32. Leeds United have been having their ups and downs in 2019 and, as a result, Norwich City managed to overtake them in top position in the standings. The Whites shared the spoils with Middlesbrough in their last league match and they will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship when they welcome Swansea City at their Elland Road. The Swans recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Millwall in their last league match, which helped them stay in the race for a place in the play-offs. Swansea City, though, produce much better showings at home than on the travels and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from Wednesday’s football match against Leeds United.
Highlighted Player (Bailey Peacock-Farrell):
Despite being born in Darlington, England on October 29, 1996, Bailey Peacock-Farrell represents Northern Ireland at senior level. The Northern Ireland international started his youth career at Middlesbrough, but in 2013 he joined Leeds United. The talented goalkeeper continued playing for Leeds United senior team and, no doubt, there is a bright future ahead of him.
Bailey Peacock-Farrell made his first-team debut for the Whites on April 5, 2016 in a home game against Queens Park Rangers. The two played out a 1-1 draw at Elland Road and it has to be noted that the goalkeeper conceded a penalty kick in the 87th minute of the match. The 192-cm tall shot-stopper has a contract with Leeds United which should expire on June, 2020.
As previously mentioned, the Leeds United goalkeeper represents Northern Ireland on the international stage, qualifying for the national team thanks to his grandfather Jim Farreell, who was born in Enniskillen.
