Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After saving one point from the Brighton game, Leeds United will look to secure the Premier League survival when they face Brentford in London on Matchday 38. The Whites could still save the season, but they need to be at their sharpest in Sunday’s showdown. Patrick Bamford should be fit for the decider, while all Summerville, Roberts, Forshaw, Dallas, and James are out of contention with injuries.
The Bees, on the other hand, have been impressive in the national championship ever since Christian Eriksen returned from illness. The capital club aim to put icing on the cake on a very successful EPL campaign, but seeing that Leeds want this win more than Brentford, we predict that the relegation-threatened visitors will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s clash. Both Zanka and Ghoddos continue to miss out with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Highlighted Player (Christian Eriksen):
Christian Eriksen born on 14th of February 1992 is a Danish football who plays as a midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur. Eriksen played in the youth of Odense BK and Ajax Amsterdam where he got picked up by Tottenham Hotspur after 3 seasons.
On 29th of August Eriksen got transferred for 13 million euro and is one of the most expensive Danish football players of all time. Christian Eriksen made his debut in March 2010 for the Danish national team and was the youngest player during the World Cup in 2010.
So far Eriksen played for over 200 club games for Ajax and Tottenham Hotspur. Eriksen is known for his great passing skills and game overview. In his career Eriksen managed to become national champion with Ajax 3 times and won several individual prices for being one of the most talented player of the moment.
Highlighted Team (Leeds United):
Leeds United is one of the clubs that won the FA Cup. The Whites outplayed Arsenal in the final of the prestigious competition back in 1972, but they clinched the League Cup trophy as well. Leeds United faced the Gunners in the 1967/1968 League Cup final and it has to be noted that Terry Cooper scored the winner for the Whites.
Leeds play their home games at Elland Road and the capacity of the stadium is 37,914. The club was founded in 1919 and they have won three First Division (Premier League) trophies ever since (1968/1969, 1973/1974, 1991/1992). Leeds United made it to the Champions League final in 1975, but they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the title clash.
The Whites were impressive under David O’Leary. The likes of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka and Ian Harte were part of the Elland Road outfit back then and they did well to reach the semis of the Champions League in 2001.
