Championship Playoff Final | Leeds v Southampton

The Promotion Decider

Leeds and Southampton battle it out for a chance at returning to the Premier League. This year’s Championship play-off final sees an exciting match between Leeds and Southampton. With just three points separating the sides in the regular season and a combined 168 goals, we should see an end to end match here. That’s why Both Teams to Score is our tip for this game at 1.72.

The Route to Wembley

After the disappointment of not being promoted automatically, Leeds will be gunning to go up at Wembley. The Whites only won twice in their last eight games of the run in handing Ipswich the second place spot. However, after thrashing Norwich 4-0 at Elland Road, manager Daniel Farke said his side have relished the ‘do or die’ phase of the season. 

Southampton reached the Championship Play-Off final with an easy win at home to West Brom. The first leg saw a cagey goalless draw at The Hawthorns. Southampton finished the season strongly with four wins from their final seven games placing them just three points away from Sunday’s opponents.

Head to Head Record

The sides met as recently as three weeks ago in the final league game of the season. Southampton left Elland Road with bragging rights that day with a 2-1 win. Earlier on in the season, The Saints also beat Leeds 3-1 at St Mary’s. Southampton won and BTTS occurred in both games which will give them the mental upper hand at Wembley.

Attacking Threats

Leeds and Southampton have scored 81 and 87 goals respectively this season with only two teams scoring more in the Championship. Crysencio Summerville and Adam Armstrong have a combined 65 goal involvements and will be the main threats for each side. With the quality these two bring, do not be surprised if we see goals. Both Teams to Score offers great value at 1.72.
