Leeds and Norwich will play out their playoff semi-final second leg on Thursday, 16 May with a match at Wembley against Southampton or West Brom the reward for the winner. After a drab 0-0 at Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon, the tie is firmly in the balance which should mean we are in for an exciting night at Elland Road on Thursday. Ahead of kick-off, here is our Leeds vs Norwich prediction.

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Based on the Leeds vs Norwich odds, the bookmakers aren't giving Norwich much hope on Thursday night which is a tad surprising given Leeds have only won one of their last seven matches. However, there is a feeling that the Canaries did need to come to Elland Road with an aggregate lead given how well Leeds have performed at home this season.

Daniel Farke's men have made Elland Road a fortress this season and they only lost for the first time on home soil in the middle of April. On the flip side, Norwich's away record this season isn't exactly anything to write home about. They finished sixth in the Championship but were 19th in terms of points picked up on the road.

David Wagner will also have to wrestle with history on Thursday night. The Canaries have won just once at Elland Road in the last eight years whereas Leeds are unbeaten against them in their last five meetings.

Last five H2Hs: Advantage Leeds

Leeds preview: A first trip to Wembley since 2008 awaits

Much was made of Daniel Farke's decision to pack the midfield at Carrow Road but if his intention was to come away with a clean sheet and a draw then it worked a treat. Farke will likely pick a more attacking team this time around with Daniel James ready to start again after recovering from injury. Patrick Bamford, however, remains out.

Predicted lineup: Meslier (GK), Gray, Rodon, Ampadu, Firpo, Kamara, Gruev, Gnonto, Summerville, James, Rutter

Norwich preview: Can they complete the underdog mission?

David Wagner is sweating on the fitness of several key players ahead of the second leg, including Josh Sargent who missed a good chance with his head on Sunday. The German is hopeful that Sargent will be okay for Thursday after he was forced off with an ankle problem but is less convinced about Ashley Barnes' availability.

Predicted lineup: Gunn (GK), Stacey, Duffy, Gibson, Giannoulis, McLean, Nunez, Sara, Rowe, Sainz, Sargent

Player to watch: Daniel James

Daniel James was only fit enough to make a five-minute cameo off the bench in the first leg but Daniel Farke has confirmed that the Welshman is ready to start the match on Thursday night. His blistering pace could be a game-changer against a tired Norwich defence.

A solid season for James

In terms of productivity, this has been the best season of James' career. He has scored 13 goals and provided eight assists in all competitions this season and Norwich are a team he enjoys playing against. He has one goal and four assists in nine appearances against the Canaries.
