          Leeds vs Leicester Preview, Tips & Stats

          Leicester make the trip to Elland Road to take on Leeds in the Friday Night Football in the Championship. The top two in the Championship take each other on as Leeds look to try and reel in Leicester.

          Leeds currently sit second in the Championship. In 33 games, Leeds have 21 wins, six draws and six losses which leaves them on 69 points, already nine points behind Leicester and only two points above third-place Southampton.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Leeds have five wins.

          After a goalless first half, Wilfried Gnonto scored the only goal of the game just two minutes into the second half to give Leeds the 1 - 0 win over Bristol City. In the Fourth Round FA Cup Replays, Leeds took on fellow Championship side Plymouth Argyle. Gnonto opened the scoring for Leeds again but an equaliser from Brendan Galloway sent the tie to extra time. However, Crysencio Summerville and Georginio Rutter both scored and an own goal from Ryan Hardie gave Leeds the 4 - 1 win.

          Back in the Championship, Leeds took on a struggling Rotherham. A goal from Patrick Bamford and a brace from Summerville gave Leeds the 3 - 0 win over Rotherham. It was another big win for Leeds against Swansea. Summerville and Joel Piroe both scored and along with a brace from Gnonto, Leeds took home a 4 - 0 win.

          The last time out for Leeds was another clash against Plymouth. Gnonto was on the scoresheet again and was joined by Rutter in the 2 - 0 win for Leeds.

          Leicester sit just above Leeds, top of the Championship. In 33 games, The Foxes have 25 wins, three draws and five losses, leaving them on 78 points, nine points ahead of Leeds and 11 points ahead of Southampton.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Leicester have four wins and one loss.

          Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall opened the scoring for Leicester in the third minute to give Leicester the 1 - 0 lead over Swansea at halftime. A penalty from Stephy Mavididi and a goal from Yunus Akgun gave Leicester the 3 - 1 win, with Joe Allen grabbing a 95th minute consolation goal. A brace from Patson Daka and a brace from Jamie Vardy as well as a goal from Kasey McAteer gave Leicester the dominant 5 - 0 win over Stoke.

          A penalty from Daka gave Leicester the 1 - 0 win over Watford at halftime. Ricardo Pereira doubled The Foxes’ lead ten minutes into the second half and despite a goal from Emmanuel Dennis just eight minutes later, Leicester held on for the 2 - 1 win over Watford. Both goals came in the first half for Leicester against Sheffield Wednesday. Abdul Fatawu opened the scoring in the fourth minute and Vardy added a second in the 36th minute to give Leicester the 2 - 0 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

          The most recent outing for Leicester was against Middlesbrough. Vardy was on the scoresheet again for The Foxes, but this time as a consolation in the 85th minute as goals from Finn Isaac Azaz and Samuel Silvera gave Middlesbrough the 2 - 1 win.

          Leeds and Leicester have met 130 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1920. Not much separates the two sides, Leeds having 49 wins and Leicester having 46 wins, the other 35 games ending in a draw.
