Manchester United vs Leeds United Prediction
Manchester United will be down after losing their chance on Champions League this season. Despite having a decent squad, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hasn’t been able to rally his team to a stable form this season in the Premier League.
Leeds will come into the match after a massive home win which produced 7 goals in total. The Whites have a decent record on the road in the top tier. But being a promoted team pulls them back against a powerful team like the Red Devils in the middle.
The host enjoys the ground advantage and playing at Old Trafford is their strongest suit in the campaign so far this season. So, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the encounter to yield decent returns.
Furthermore, when these two sides meet, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair at this stage of the competition. Hence, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be a suitable option for the punters in the encounter.
