Leeds United and Rotherham United will lock horn at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday.
However, the former Leeds star does not expect Steve Evans’ side to have an easy game at Elland Road.
“I do fancy Leeds to get the result on Saturday, but I think it will be a tough game, not as easy as what people might think,” Matteo said on Radio Yorkshire.
Leeds will head into Saturday’s match on the back of a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield Town away from home.
The victory at the John Smith's Stadium was the Whites’ second in a row in the Championship.
There is optimism at Elland Road at the moment, and the players will be confident of winning against Huddersfield.
Neil Redfern’s side are struggling at the moment and currently find themselves at the bottom of the Championship table.
The Millers have picked up just nine points from 16 matches and are in serious danger of getting relegated to League One at the end of the season.
Rotherham are unbeaten in their last five matches against the Whites, winning two and drawing three.
