LEEDS vs WAT: Match Prediction And Preview

Leeds United are having a difficult start to the season, having yet to win a league game. They'll be playing at home against recently promoted Watford, who are also looking to get back on track. Leeds are in 18th place with three points from six games, while Watford are in 12th place with seven points. Leeds' only two wins this season have come in the League Cup, one of which came on penalty kicks after a draw. They fell 2-1 at home to West Ham United in their last match, and they have only kept one clean sheet in their last five games.

Both teams have scored in three of their last five games, while Leeds United have not kept a clean sheet in the Premier League this season, losing all six games. They haven't been particularly strong defensively, conceding two or more goals in four of the league's six games, while only failing to score in one. They have lost two consecutive league games at Elland Road, and have conceded in each of their previous five league matches.

Watford has made a terrific start in the Premier League, remaining clear of the relegation zone thus far. They have only one win in their last five games and have only kept one clean sheet in their first eight games. Watford have failed to score in three of their past eight games, with both teams scoring in their last three. They've conceded two or more goals in four of their last eight games, and they've only won two of their six league games this season.

Watford thrashed Norwich 3-1 in their most recent away league encounter, although they have lost two of their three league away games. Watford haven't had much luck on the road in the league, despite having a solid record against Leeds. They have nine defeats in 11 league away matches, but are unbeaten in five meetings with Leeds, winning four of them. 

SUMMARY:

In these clubs' meetings, a lack of clean sheets has been prevalent; both teams are desperate for a win and will undoubtedly attack. Both clubs should score here, given the weakness of their defences, as they have in Watford's last three games and three of Leeds' last five. Given their previous scoring records, I expect both teams to score in this match. The game will go down on Saturday at 3PM Nigerian time.
