The Yorkshire Derby is on Saturday afternoon in the Championship, the second English league. The league leader Leeds United welcomes the neighbor Sheffield Wednesday 30 miles away on Elland Road.
Leeds retired from the FA Cup against Arsenal on Monday, but was a top performer at the Gunners and can now concentrate fully on their promotion to the Premier League.
Sheffield Wednesday also had to get away with a first division team in the FA Cup. With the 1-0 win at Brighton & Hove Albion, the owls not only moved into the next cup round, but were also able to celebrate their success again after three league defeats in a row.
Before the Yorkshire Derby vs. Leeds Sheffield Wednesday, however, the odds of the betting providers clearly speak for the leaders. The betting base also reckons with the home side and bets Leeds vs. Sheffield Wednesday even predicted Leeds to win without conceding a goal.
Leeds - statistics & current form
The Leeds United Football Club long played for promotion to the Premier League in the previous season. The Whites were third in the promotion playoffs at the end of the season, but failed in the first round at Derby County.
In this season, the club has started a new start. The Leeds team continues to rely on the Argentinian coach Marcelo Bielsa, who took over the Peacocks in June 2018.
This trust seems to be paying off. After 26 game days of the championship, Leeds leads the table. The lead over the first chaser, West Bromwich Albion, is only two goals.
What is much more important is the lead over third place, the first playoff place. Here the northern English currently have a cushion of nine points. In the last few weeks it has been a bit out of round for the league leaders.
There was only one win in the last five league games. On the other hand, there have been only one defeat in the recent 15 championship games, 1-2 in Fulham. On the domestic Elland Road, the Whites have been unbeaten for nine games. In twelve home games, the peacocks also had to concede eight goals, which is the best in the second English league.
With 27 points, Leeds was a little stronger than their home fans compared to 25 home counters this season than in front of their own fans. 43 goals scored mean the second best value in the championship.
Even so, fewer than three goals were scored in nine of United's twelve home games. With these statistics, before the duel Leeds vs. Sheffield Wednesday made a forecast on an exit with few hits again.
In the third round of the FA Cup, Leeds had to compete with the Gunners on Monday. In the first half, the second division side showed a top performance at Arsenal and was clearly the better team.
It was only thanks to the post and the poor exploitation of Leeds that the Londoners went 0-0 in the break. Arsenal only got stronger in the second round. The former Hoffenheim Reiss Nelson then scored the decisive goal for the hosts.
The league leaders in the second division showed on the one hand how well they can keep up with a top Premier League team, but on the other hand they can now fully concentrate on the league and promotion.
Adam Forshaw is out of the game due to injury. The operations of Jamie Shackleton and Pablo Hernández are still uncertain. In the offensive, the club definitely wants to be active in the winter transfer period after Eddie Nketiah's loan had to be ended.
Probable lineups of Leeds:
Casilla - Alioski, White, Cooper, Ayling - Phillips - Harrison, Klich, Dallas, Costa - Bamford
Last games from Leeds:
01/06/2020 - Arsenal vs. Leeds United 1-0 (FA Cup)

Sheffield Wednesday - statistics & current form
The Sheffield Wednesday Football Club has been playing in the English second division since 2012. The owls made the playoffs to promotion to the Premier League twice during this period, but failed there once in the semifinals and once in the final.
After twelfth place last season, SWFC coach Garry Monk succeeded Steve Bruce, who moved to Newcastle in the Premier League. Sheffield could reach the playoff ranks again this season.
The club is currently in eighth place in the championship, two points behind in sixth. In the last three games, Manager Monk's men lost a lot of ground in the race for the playoff places with three defeats in a row.
On the other hand, the FA Cup game on Saturday with first division club Brighton & Hove Albion gave hope. Despite having only 38 percent possession of the ball, the second division side narrowly won the game 1-0.
The first victory in the FA Cup against a higher-class team since 1993 should now give the owls a new boost for the league. On the other hand, the club is threatened with a point deduction after the Hillsborough Stadium was sold under illegal conditions to Dejphon Chansiri, the Thai owner of Sheffield Wednesday. However, coaches and players only want to concentrate on the sport and end the small crisis as quickly as possible.
The Owls conceded six of the nine defeats of the season on the opponent's place. This knowledge before Leeds vs. Derby Sheffield Wednesday made a tip on one or three points not that easy for guests.
Against Leeds, Coach Monk has to do without Liam Palmer, Steven Fletcher and Fernando Forestieri. Especially the injury to Steven Fletcher, who has scored twelve times in 22 league games, hits Sheffield hard. Fletcher is missing the team with a knee injury for a good eight to ten weeks.
Sheffield Wednesday also wants to continue its offensive on the transfer market. The target is Eddie Nketiah, who was recently loaned to Leeds United and has just recently been ordered back by his home club Arsenal London. Rumor has it, however, that he will be borrowed again.
Probable lineup of Sheffield Wednesday:
Dawson - Iorfa, Lees, Börner, Fox - Reach, Bannan, Hutchinson, Harris - Rhodes, Nuhiu
Last Sheffield Wednesday matches:
01/04/2020 - Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Sheffield Wednesday 0-1 (FA Cup)
