Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Vicarage Road will host Saturday’s Premier League game between Watford and Leeds United, the two bottom-table sides. Watford aim to escape the relegation zone, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field. A man to watch in the home team will be Senegal winger Ismaila Sarr, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Leeds.
The Whites, on the other hand, are eight points clear of the relegation zone. Leeds United have been in a fine form of late, and given their attacking potential, we believe that both teams to score betting option should be considered. As always, all eyes will be on Brazil international Raphinha, speaking of the away side. The likes of Firpo, Shackleton, Roberts, and Bamford should miss out with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Joao Pedro):
Joao Pedro played for Atletico Mineiro during his youth career and he made no less than 11 appearances for the club at senior level. The Brazilian footballer, who was born on 9 March, 1992 in Ipatinga, signed a deal with Palermo on 30 August, 2010 and he made his debut for the Sicilian outfit in the Serie A on 17 January, 2011.
He came as a substitute to replace Josip Ilicic in a 3-1 defeat to Cagliari. On 29 January, 2011 he joined Vitoria Guimaraes on loan and on 19 August he was loaned to Penarol of Uruguay. After ending his loan spell with the Uruguayan team, the Brazilian midfielder joined Santos and he played 10 games for the Brazilian team.
On 1 July he signed a contract with Estoril and he moved to Cagliari at the end of the season. Joao Pedro has 11 caps for Brazil U17 and he scored one goal for the national team.
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.
