Leeds United vs Norwich City kicks off at 4.00 BST and will be played at Elland Road in Leeds. In the penultimate match for both teams this season it is just Leeds that has something to play for.
In a perfect world Leeds United can still reach a play off spot. Norwich City, with their deplorable away record, should be a beatable opponent before travelling to relegated Wigan for their season finale.

Leeds United vs Norwich City Preview
It is fair to say that Leeds United blew it all in their last 8 games. Just 2 victories and 2 draws is not enough in the final stage of the season. Instead of already being certain of a play off spot, Leeds needs 2 wins from 2 matches to keep their hopes alive. First up is Norwich in what is the last home game of Leeds this season.
The Canaries have a hard time getting results on the road. Although winning in their last away game at Preston, they only have 2 wins in their last 16 away matches. With nothing on the line it remains to be seen how they will fare at Elland Road.
Due to injuries Norwich will travel to Leeds without Wes Hoolahan and Alex Tettey. On a positive note: coach Irvine can count on Timm Klose, who is due to return to the Norwich line up.

Leeds United vs Norwich City Betting Predictions
Taking into consideration the current form of Leeds, one has to fear for a good result. If you look at their home form, things at once look different. The team is strong at home, although often winning by the smallest margin, they barely lose.
Norwich is the opposite on the road to Leeds at home. The Canaries barely win a match away from home, and thank their 8th place in the standing to a good home form. I can’t see past a Leeds United home win, and that’s my betting tip.
An other bet to have a look at is Chris Wood to score first. The top goalscorer of the EFL Championship 2016/2017 has netted 25 times so far this season, of which 17 times as first goalscorer. Amazing statistic, and also one of the better betting predictions.
