Stats: How do Leeds compare to promotion chasing Brentford?

Leeds United have been better than Brentford in a couple of key areas this season?

Leeds United against Brentford in the Championship this weekend is a difficult game to call.

Leeds are looking for a third win on the bounce but the Bees are significantly higher up in the table; 17 points ahead and currently in the play-off places.

So how do the sides shape up against each other?

Brentford 44 37 78% 155 383 377 28
Leeds 30 39 76% 97 437 479 28

Brentford have scored a significantly higher number of goals this season but there’s very little difference in terms of each defence.

If Leeds can defend effectively, they have every chance of getting a win if they can cash in and make the most of their chances.

There’s also very little between the teams in terms of passing accuracy, but the crossing stats suggest that Brentford shift possession into wider areas more effectively.

Leeds have to try and funnel the ball into the middle of the pitch where their tackling and interception stats suggest their biggest strength is.

Leeds can beat any side in front of their own supporters but Brentford are in the play-offs for a reason and will be looking to show off their quality this weekend.
