Leeds United vs. Manchester United – English Premier League, April 25, 2021

| April 23, 2021 6:27 am PDT

This is a game that Leeds fans would have marked down in the calendar when the fixture list came out ahead of the season. So it is a real shame that there won’t be any supporters at Elland Road on Sunday to see it.

The home side has excited the neutrals all season with its tactics and gameplay and will fancy its chances against a Manchester United coming into this one second in the table.

Manchester United to Win-118

For all the excitement that Marcelo Bielsa’s side generates, it has still lost 14 games this season. That’s why BetOnline has Manchester United as the favorite to win this one.

These prices do look a little further apart than I would have expected, so there could be some value in the draw bet.

Team Assessments

Leeds made their feelings be known on the Super League on Monday when it faced Liverpool at Elland Road. Special warm-up t-shirts were worn before the game, and the home side ended up snatching a well-deserved point thanks to a late Diego Llorente goal.

That draw kept an impressive five-game unbeaten run going and consolidated the club’s mid-table position.

With no real chance of breaking into the European qualification places now, Leeds will continue to play the attacking brand of soccer it has been doing all season and hope for another impressive scalp on Sunday.

Manchester United has not played since the weekend when it beat Burnley 3-1 at home, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is probably very happy that his players will not have to deal with what would have been a loud home crowd this Sunday. His club has been attacked by fans this week in the fallout of the debacle of the European Super League.

On the pitch, Manchester United has continued to rack up the points while never getting anywhere near City at the top of the table. It is strange to think that United will easily qualify for the Champions League in second and not praised in the way it probably should be for that achievement.

Leeds United vs. Manchester United Prediction and Pick

Pick
  • The Draw
    +270

Leeds doesn’t know any other way to play, so we can probably expect an open game of chances and commitment on Sunday at Elland Road. Manchester United will be a little more cautious, but this promises to be a very good game.

A draw at the end of 90 minutes would probably suit both managers, and that’s the bet to make here.
