Dean Smith’s Bees will pose a threat at Elland Road, but our tipster is backing Bielsa’s high-flying Whites to prevail in this Championship clash

Leeds United welcome Brentford to West Yorkshire on Saturday lunchtime in the Championship.

The hosts are 5/1 (6.0) to win the title this season after an impressive start under Marcelo Bielsa, while their West London visitors are 2/1 (3.0) to be promoted.

There is some uncertainty surrounding Bees boss Dean Smith, who has been linked with the vacant Aston Villa manager’s job after Steve Bruce was let go on Wednesday afternoon..

Latest odds

Leeds are 5/4 (2.25) with bet365 to record a fourth home league victory of the campaign, after defeating Stoke, Rotherham and Preston at Elland Road.

Brentford are 21/10 (3.10) to aid their push for a top six berth by achieving a first away league win since April, but the Bees have drawn three in five on the road in 2018-19 and another tie is 12/5 (3.40).

Team News

Said Benrahma returns from a one-match suspension for Brentford. With Ollie Watkins and Sergi Canos also available, Smith has a healthy dilemma in the wide areas.

Key forwards Kemar Roofe and Patrick Bamford are set to miss out for Leeds again, so Tyler Roberts should keep his place up top.

Roberts to strike?

Roberts has scored three goals in five appearances for the Whites and is an attractive 7/5 (2.40) to score anytime.

The 19-year-old, who impressed during previous loan spells with Shrewsbury and Walsall, is 15/2 (8.50) to score two or more goals, which looks good value considering he has already bagged a brace this season against Preston.

Preview and predictions

Leeds have scored 21 goals this season and Brentford 19, so it would be wise to back both teams to find the net, with the hosts ultimately prevailing considering they have won six of their last nine league games at Elland Road.

Our best bet therefore is the 3/1 (4.0) from bet365 on Leeds to win and both teams to score.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
