Three defeats on the bounce confirmed Championship team Ipswich will finish bottom of the table with a record reading four wins, 16 draws and 25 defeats. So, here are our top Ipswich v Leeds betting tips.
An In-Depth Look at the Game
They have -42 in their goal difference tally after conceding no less than 75 times this season and it’ll take improvement throughout the club if Ipswich is to bounce back next season, not to mention a lot of cash. They need to learn the lessons taught by this disastrous campaign and they need to come back stronger, cutting out the deadwood and bringing in talent while giving youth a chance in the lower leagues.
Ipswich was relegated quite some time ago and a 2-0 beating away to Sheffield United last weekend meant they are now unable to climb off the bottom. Hogan scored for The Blades early in the match and that was added to by O’Connell who struck with 71 minutes on the clock. Paul Lambert took time to congratulate his opponents for sealing their promotion but struggled to find anything positive to say about his boys that could convince fans. Ipswich has been written off by the bookies as outsiders and you’ll get 4/1 (Bet365) if taking a chance on the home win.
Familiar Feeling for United
Leeds fans have been here too many times already. After a season of promised which allowed fans to dream of automatic promotion to the Premier League, maybe even as champions, they have fallen apart down the home straight and will be stuck with the consolation of playoff football. They can’t grumble as they remain in with a shout of gaining promotion but it’s not ideal and they’d much prefer to go up without the lottery of being involved in an extended season.
Leeds are winless in their last three going into the week with that drought made up of two defeats and a draw. They were beaten by Wigan and Brentford last month, two teams they really should be beating if serious about challenging but did manage to stop the rot last weekend. The Peacocks held on for a 1-1 draw at Elland Road when hosting Aston Villa with a goal from Klich quickly cancelled out by Adomah on 77 minutes, shortly after El Ghazi had been sent off by a straight red. Leeds had 27 shots at goal but got just five on target, one hitting the net. Wasteful and something that needs to be addressed going into the play-offs.
