Leeds vs Brentford: Top Two Tips

Leeds and Brentford put on quite a show when they last locked horns in the Premier League and we're predicting another action-packed 90-minutes on Sunday. The Bees ran out 5-2 winners in their home game against Leeds this season and each of the three previous meetings between these two clubs in the top flight of English football have provided plenty of entertainment.

Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score

While we might not be treated to seven goals like we were when these two sides met in Brentford earlier in the season, we're still predicting that there will be plenty of goalmouth action to savour on Sunday. Each of the last three meetings between these two teams in the Premier League have ended with both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals being produced. Five of Leeds' last six competitive and non-competitive matches have ended with at least three goals being scored and both teams finding the back of the net, and the same can be said of three of Brentford's last six fixtures.

Moreno Rodrigo to Score

Rodrigo is one of the leading strikers in the Premier League this season, scoring 10-goals for Leeds so far. Only one of the Spanish forward's ten strikes has come from the penalty spot and he really is looking confident in and around the penalty area this season. The 31-year-old has scored 7-goals in his last nine matches in all competitions for Leeds and we're backing him to score against Brentford on Sunday.

Let's take a look at the latest markets and odds ahead of Leeds vs Brentford.

Leeds odds: 7/5 (2.50) – 41.7%

Draw odds: 11/4 (3.75) – 26.7%

Brentford odds: 2/1 (3.00) – 33.3%

*all odds provided are the best price at the time of publication and come from various bookmakers and therefore the probabilities won't always add up to 100%.

As you can see, the bookmakers have Leeds down as their slight favourite to secure all 3pts this weekend but the odds aren't overly convincing. If you want to put a bet on the First Goalscorer in this game then there are two clear choices for you, Ivan Toney of Brentford at 6/4 (2.5) – 40% and Moreno Rodrigo of Leeds at 7/4 (2.75) – 36.4%.

How will the teams lineup on Sunday?

Leeds

Leeds made the trip to Aston Villa for their last Premier League game. An early goal for the home side set the tone of the evening for the Yorkshire club who conceded a second goal just after the hour mark. Patrick Bamford pulled a goal back for Leeds 7-minutes from time but the visitors failed to conjure up an equaliser. Summerville, Forshaw, Cooper, Sinisterra, Gray and Dallas are all injury concerns for the home side this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Meslier (GK), Cooper, Ayling, Koch, Struijk, Roca, Adams, Harrison, Aaronson, Rodrigo & Gnonto

Brentford

The Bees picked up a comfortable 3pts at home to Bournemouth last weekend, Ivan Toney getting the ball rolling with a 39th-minute penalty. A second-half strike from Jensen put this game to bed as Brentford claimed a 2-0 victory. Onyeka, Jansson, Baptiste, Henry and Hickey are all doubts for this weekend's trip to Yorkshire due to injury.

Predicted Lineup – Raya (GK), Mee, Ajer, Pinnock, Nørgaard, Dasilva, Jensen, Janelt, Toney, Wissa & Mbeumo

Player to Watch: Moreno Rodrigo

If Leeds are going to get anything out of this weekend's match against Brentford then there is a good chance that Rodrigo will play a big role.

The 31-year-old Spanish striker has been in fantastic form in front of goal lately, netting 7-goals in his last nine appearances in league and cup. With 10-goals in the Premier League alone, Rodrigo is one of the top marksmen in the league this season and Brentford will have to keep a sharp eye on him this weekend.

Whilst he scores most of his goals in the box, Rodrigo has a great shot on him from range and if Bamford plays in this game as well, we could see Rodrigo drop back a little and try his luck from outside the box.
