Leeds will play at home against Liverpool in the 31st round of the championship of England. The match will take place on Monday, April 17.
The Whites continue to fight to retain their place in the English Premier League. Currently, the team from the city of the same name occupies sixteenth place in the standings. In assets “peacocks” 29 points.
The team from Leeds is only two points ahead of Everton and Nottingham Forest. West Ham and Bournemouth are ahead of Javi Gracia’s charges. The fight for survival is still ahead and Leeds need to push hard to avoid a nervous ending.
In the last game Leeds suffered a big loss at home to Crystal Palace (1:5), and before that also home defeated Nottingham Forest (2-1) and on the road lost to Arsenal (1:4).
The Merseysiders still have an opportunity to salvage a little bit of a failing season. The team from Liverpool currently sits eighth in the standings. The Reds have 44 points and mathematically they can still climb into the Champions League zone.
Now Liverpool are 12 points behind fourth-placed Manchester United. Of course, it is difficult to make up that gap, but it is realistic. You need to take three points in each match. Fifth-placed Tottenham are nine points away and have two games to spare.
Jurgen Klopp’s charges have scored 50 goals and conceded 35 in the English championship this season. They recently finished in the Champions League, losing on aggregate in two games to Real Madrid, and the team has long been out of the Cups.
Our bet and prediction is a Liverpool win. It’s time for the Merseysiders to come out of a steep dive.
