Our prediction for this Championship match:
All eyes will be on Elland Road when Leeds United and Fulham face each other in the Championship derby. Leeds United aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Cardiff, but they will have to do it without injured trio Augustin – Forshaw – Hernandez. Anyhow, Marcelo Bielsa’s men are eager to retain their spot in top two, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Cottagers, who experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 2-0 home loss to Brentford.
Fulham produced a below par performance in their first game after the layoff, and it is no surprise they are seen as underdogs in Saturday’s derby. Top scorer Aleksandar Mitrovic is likely to lead the line for the visitors, but he is unlikely to help them spoil the Whites’ party at Elland Road on Matchday 39.
