Leeds United took the English Championship by storm in the 2019-20 season, as Marcelo Bielsa’s men cruised their way towards earning the top spot in England’s second-tier league. They won promotion to the 2020-21 Premier League, and the Argentinian tactician has adjusted his team quite well against tougher oppositions.
Through the first two weeks of the Premier League season, Leeds United has been the most entertaining team to watch -- and by a wide margin. They engaged in a back-and-forth battle against Liverpool despite losing 4-3, and repeated the score -- albeit winning this time -- against Fulham. Leeds attacking approach and intensity is a welcomed sight in the Premier League, a league where promoted teams tend to sit back and play on the counter.
Prime Betting Target
It would be unrealistic to think Leeds will score four goals on every given match. Opposing teams will eventually adjust to their tactical approach, and it’s not as if Leeds has the attacking talent to score goals for fun against stronger teams. The addition of Rodrigo Moreno was a step in the right direction, but Leeds needs to add at least one or two other proven players to become a realistic offensive threat, regardless of the opposition.
From a betting perspective, Leeds is a team that could give you nightmares in terms of the moneyline pick -- they’re a team that could concede goals at any point of a contest and may not be strange to last-minute results. However, they might be a strong bet when it comes to over/under figures. This is especially true if they keep playing like they’ve done in the past few matches.
Leeds United is averaging 4.0 goals per game over the first two games of the season. That’s an unsustainable pace over the course of a full season, but they were a free-scoring side in the Championship ever since Marcelo Bielsa took control of the team before the 2018-19 season. Leeds averaged 1.67 goals per game in 2019-20, including 1.58 in 2018-19. They finished as the second-best attack in the league last season.
Regardless of what happens with Leeds United, they'll be an entertaining team to watch -- and potentially to root for -- in the 2020-21 Premier League season. Their first two games of the season have been a strong indicator of what to expect every time The Whites take the pitch.
