  • Competition: FA Cup
  • Date: 18th December 2022
  • Kickoff: 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
  • Venue: Elland Road

After the 2-2 draw at Cardiff City Stadium over a week ago, Leeds United and Cardiff City will meet again on Wednesday, but this time at Elland Road.

Leeds United would be looking to put an end their winless run of seven games in all competitions. Showing how poor they have been defensively of late, the defeat to Aston Villa at the weekend was their third successive game in which they conceded at least two goals. However, Jesse Marsch's side will be boosted by the fact that the final third rarely disappoints. They have scored averagely 1.7 goals per game in their last ten competitive games, so you expect them to score at least once here.

Just like the hosts, things don't seem to be going Cardiff's way either, as they haven't won their last nine matches in all competitions. Considering that six of those games ended in draws, Mark Hudson's side, however, can't be written off just yet when it comes to progressing to the next stage of the competition.

Leeds vs Cardiff Betting Tips: BTTS

Although Cardiff City have been tough to beat in recent games, they have a weakness of always letting their lead slip away.

Despite taking the lead in four of their last seven games in all competitions, they have ended in a draw - something they will need to work on if they are to progress to the next round of this cup tie.

In our opinion, both sides are likely to score, as has been the case in four of the last five meetings between these two sides.

Leeds United Team News

Leeds United will not be able to call up on the services of Stuart Dallas, who is struggling with a fractured thigh, but otherwise the hosts have no other worries.

Jesse Marsch is expected to make some changes in his starting eleven after the defeat against Aston Villa in the last Premier League last time out.

Patrick Bamford came off the bench in that game and scored a goal, so the 29-year-old is one of those who should benefit from the changes.
