          Leeds vs Leicester Predictions & Betting Tips

          Leeds welcome Leicester to Elland Road in what will be a huge game in the race for the Championship title and automatic promotion.

          Date: 23/02/24

          Kick-off time: 20:00

          Venue: Elland Road

          Leicester had looked like they were running away with the Championship as they battle for an immediate return to top flight football. However, recent results have opened the door for those below them to close the gap at the summit. The Foxes still sit first, but their advantage is now at eight points over this weekend’s opponents.

          Enzo Maresca’s team have dropped eight points in their last seven games, but Leeds’ excellent form, in which they have won eight in a row, has meant their complacencies have been punished. A victory for the hosts would cut the lead at the top to just five, with 12 games remaining. Three points for Leicester would strengthen their grip on first place, and it’d be difficult to see them relinquish that position from then on. Both Southampton and Ipswich have a game in hand over Leeds, so any dropped points could give those two sides an excellent opportunity to overtake.

          Goals should be expected, with both sides amongst the league’s best attacks. Leicester’s 69 goals scored is the best in the division, whilst Leeds’ 61 is not too far behind. They both boast the best defence, but the visitors have only kept a clean sheet twice in eight games. Daniel Farke’s side, in contrast, have not conceded in their last five league fixtures.

          If offenses are to be on top, look out for Crysencio Summerville, who has scored 15 goals for Leeds this season. He has four in his last four appearances. For Leicester, Jamie Vardy has still got it, with 10 goals in 23 games, as he proves to still be a nightmare for opposition defences. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall has been a very important component of the attack, also scoring 10 but providing 12 assists in addition. This tally is the highest in the Championship alongside Ipswich’s Leif Davis.

          Since 2020, Leeds and Leicester have faced off seven times, six of which came in the Premier League. Leicester won three, drew two and lost one of their meetings in the top flight. The first came just after Leeds’ promotion, which the Foxes comfortably won 4-1. The one defeat for the visitors was in January 2021 at the King Power Stadium. Harvey Barnes gave them an early lead, but Leeds managed to turn it around late on to win 3-1.

          The reverse fixture earlier this season ended in favour of Leeds, who conflicted the second defeat of the season on their opponents. There wasn’t much to split the pair, but Georginio Rutter’s 58th-minute winner proved to be the difference.

          Team News


          Leeds have no new injury concerns, with just the long-term absentees still on the sidelines. Karl Darlow, Pascal Struijk and Stuart Dallas remain out.


          Wilfried Ndidi has been out with a leg injury and will remain out until April. Kelechi Iheanacho and Marc Albrighton returned last weekend, which was a big boost.

          Form Guide


          In their last five games, Leeds have been perfect, winning all of them. They have entered a great run of form at the right time of the season, as they battle with Leicester, Southampton and Ipswich for automatic promotion. This run began with a 1-0 victory at Bristol City, a game in which they dominated, but a Wilfred Gnonto winner was all that separated the two sides. They continued their winning momentum into the FA Cup, as they comfortably dispatched of Plymouth 4-1 in a fourth round replay to set up a tie with Chelsea.

          Three more consecutive league wins followed, all won in convincing fashion. They scored nine unanswered goals in this span. Beginning with a 3-0 win over Rotherham, Patrick Bamford found the net before Crysencio Summerville added a brace. A dominant trip to Swansea meant they left with three points and a 4-0 win, as Summerville and Gnonto found the net once more. Joel Piroe was the other name on the scoresheet.

          The most recent outing was a second meeting with Plymouth in five games and it was another confident victory. Gnonto and Georginio Rutter scored in the lunchtime fixture.


          In their last five games, Leicester have won four and lost one. Whilst they have picked up 12 points out of the last 15 available, the Foxes will be incredibly disappointed to snap their six-game unbeaten streak at home to an inconsistent Middlesbrough side. Boro surprisingly took the lead through Finn Isaac Azaz, before they doubled it prior to the break with a goal from Samuel Silvera. Despite their dominance, Leicester could not find the net until the 85th minute. Jamie Vardy’s strike threatened a comeback, but they did not get the equaliser.

          This followed a 2-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday in which they took an early lead thanks to Abdul Fatawu. A much more even game against Watford provided a tougher test, but it was another that the league leaders passed as Patson Daka and Ricardo Pereira got on the scoresheet. The most emphatic victory came at Stoke, where Daka and Vardy scored a brace each in addition to another strike from Kasey McAteer.

          They also beat Swansea 3-1 at home to begin this stretch of games. Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Stephy Mavididi and Yunus Akgun scored the goals.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          Leeds will need to win if they want to keep automatic promotion in their hands. It is a huge game against a Leicester team who has stumbled recently, and we expect Leeds to use the home crowd to their advantage – Leeds 2-1 Leicester
