Leeds vs Derby County begins 15.05.2019 at 20:45 CET
Leeds did a good job in the 1st leg, although they are probably still sorry for not using the chance in the regular season. They occupied the first place for a long time, which leads directly to the Premiership, however, in last four rounds they failed to win and ended up at the third place. They somehow pulled themselves together and won Derby 1-0 away but they paid the triumph with injuries of midfielder Forshaw and forward Roofe who scored the only goal. Both of them will skip the rematch.
Probable lineups Leeds: Casilla – Ayling, Cooper, Jansson, Dallas – Phillips – P. Hernandez, Klich, Shackleton, Harrison – Bamford
Derby played well in the finish of regular season and thanks to five-game unbeaten streak had reached the 6th place. Out of that they won four times, three in a row at the very end. The positive streak was base for their optimism ahead of the 1st leg with Leeds, however, they couldn’t avoid defeat which threatens to eliminate them. It seems now that they played well in the finish of season for no good reason. Besides from before injured players there are no new names on the list, although manager Lampard could make a change in the top of attack where Marriott could play instead of Nugent.
Probable lineups Derby County: Roos – Bogle, Keogh, Tomori, Malone – Mount, B.Johnson, Holmes – Wilson, Marriott, Lawrence
Leeds vs Derby County PICK
Leeds missed its chance in the regular season but then it did a good job in the first leg with Derby and now has great advantage. We don’t expect that will drop this one and will qualify for the play-off final with a new triumph.
Pick: Leeds wins
