Blackburn Rovers v Leeds United, October 20

Leeds United have been one of the best sides in the Championship so far, and Marcelo Bielsa’s team will be confident of picking up all three points against Blackburn Rovers away from home at Ewood Park after the international break.

Rovers, though, are doing quite well at the moment and are just a point off the Championship playoffs. The Whites, though, should eke out a win.

Prediction: Blackburn Rovers 1-2 Leeds United

 

Leeds United v Ipswich Town, October 24

Ipswich Town are struggling for survival in the Championship at the moment, and it is hard to see the Tractor Boys put up a fight against Leeds at Elland Road.

The West Yorkshire outfit are a much better team, and the home fans could see the team score three or four goals.

Prediction: Leeds United 3-0 Ipswich Town

Leeds United v Nottingham Forest, October 27

Nottingham Forest have not been flashy, but Aitor Karanka’s side have slowly climbed into the Championship playoffs. Given the quality of players the former Middlesbrough manager at his disposal, he will be confident of winning against Leeds, who may struggle to keep Lewis Grabban in check.

Prediction: Leeds United 0-1 Nottingham Forest
