Today's Betting Tips for Leeds vs Cardiff

Leeds are odds-on favourites to eliminate Cardiff in Wednesday’s FA Cup third round replay at Elland Road. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Over 2.5 Goals

Leeds drew 2-2 with Cardiff in Wales when the teams locked horns in the third round of the FA Cup last week, though in truth, the Premier League outfit should have been out of sight having mustered a staggering 26 shots to the Bluebirds’ five on the day. Back at Elland Road for the replay, we expect Leeds to assert their dominance and the goals could flow again as a result. Four of Leeds’s last five assignments featured over 2.5 goals and we’re tipping that pattern to continue this week.

Rodrigo to Score Anytime

Rodrigo has been delivering the goods for Leeds in the final third this season and the reliable Spaniard bagged a late equalizer for the Yorkshiremen when they drew 2-2 with Cardiff in Wales on January 8th.  In total, Rodrigo has scored seven times in his last nine appearances in all competitions for Leeds and our second prediction tips the 31-year-old to prolong his purple patch at City’s expense on Wednesday.

Leeds vs Cardiff Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Wednesday’s FA Cup skirmish between Leeds and Cardiff below.

Leeds

Crysencio Summerville, Luis Sinisterra, Archie Gray and Stuart Dallas are all still out for Leeds, for Adam Forshaw is rated at 50/50. Leeds lost 2-1 at Aston Villa in their last assignment, though they went three games unbeaten before that.

Predicted Lineup for Leeds: Mesiler – Ayling, Koch, Cooper, Strujik – Roca, Adams, Harrison, Aaronson, Gnonto – Rodrigo

Cardiff

Leeds will be without the services of injured defenders Mahlon Romeo and Jamilu Collins on Wednesday, though they have a healthy-looking squad elsewhere. The Bluebirds were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw at home by relegation rivals Wigan in the Championship at the weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Cardiff: Allsop – Ng, Nelson, Simpson, O'Dowda – Wintle, Ralls, Harris, Ojo, Philogene – Davies

Player to Watch – Wilfried Gnonto

19-year-old Italian winger Wilfried Gnonto is an exciting player to watch and the diminutive attacker mustered three attempts for Leeds when they drew 2-2 at Cardiff a little over a week ago. Gnonto is working hard to establish himself as a first-choice pick for Leeds’s boss Jesse Marsch and he will be out to impress again in midweek.

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
