These teams played out a four-goal thriller in the first match in Wales and meet again at Elland Road in the replay

Leeds hope to end their seven-game winless run when they meet Cardiff in the FA Cup this week.

Jesse Marsch's team are in dire form heading into the clash with the Championship side, who are not in the best shape themselves having lost three and drawn six of their last nine matches.

Leeds vs Cardiff City latest odds

The home team are the favourites to win this game and progress in the competition at odds of 1/3 (1.33) with bet365.

Away side Cardiff are the outsiders to win at 9/1 (10.00) and the draw is set at 4/1 (5.00).

Leeds vs Cardiff City first goal scorer odds

Rodrigo is Leeds' top scorer in the Premier League this season with 10 goals and is the favourite to get the first goal of the match at odds of 10/3 (4.33) while team-mate Patrick Bamford is available at 15/4 (4.75).

Callum Robinson and Morgan Wigley are the lowest-priced Cardiff players to break the deadlock at odds of 12/1 (13.00).

Leeds vs Cardiff City preview

Luis Sinisterra, Stuart Dallas, Crysencio Summerville, Adam Forshaw and Archie Gray are all unavailable for the home team for this encounter.

However, Patrick Bamford is in contention to start for Jesse Marsch's team after scoring against Aston Villa at the weekend.

The Premier League side should be too strong for the Championship side, who have not tasted victory since early-November and have dropped to three points outside of the relegation zone.

The two teams played out a 2-2 draw when they met in Wales but Leeds will feel they can get a better result on home soil.

Leeds vs Cardiff City tips and predictions

There were more than 2.5 goals in the previous match between these teams so backing that bet to pay off again at odds of 4/6 (1.67) looks like a good bet.
