Derby – Leeds Tips & Predictions For Today, August 11, 2018.
League: England – Championship
Tip: Over 1.5 Goals
Match Result: 1:4 WON!!!
|With new managers in the dugouts of both Derby County (seventh) and Leeds United (fourth), a high-intensity feature awaits fans at Pride Park Stadium.|
|Getting off to winning ways with a 2-1 away win, Derby manager Frank Lampard oversees his first home game of the season. Tasked with getting the ‘Rams’ back into the Premier league (PL) for the first time since 2008, Lampard’s first game in charge saw a 94th-minute victory for a manager whose playing days saw many 90+ minute goals.|
|Gracefully winning 3-1 against PL relegated Stoke City, Elland Road bore witness to a new regime with highly-rated Marcelo Bielsa (LEE) overcoming the odds in his first game in charge. With the same squad as last season, (bar new signing Barry Douglas), Bielsa is already receiving plaudits for his high-intensity attacking style of play; but can his players keep up with his demands?|
|Amassing 54 H2H wins, Leeds lead the way in this fixture with Derby claiming 37 victories – 28 draws round of this meeting which saw a 2-2 draw in their last match.|
|Players to watch: After completing a loan move from Liverpool, will Lampard give highly-rated Welshman Harry Wilsonanother runout here? He has seven goals from 13 games this calendar year whilst on loan to Hull City.|
|Leeds midfielder Pablo Hernández has only gone one season (out of nine) without scoring a goal – the hard-working Spaniard has 11 career goals for Leeds.|
|Stat attack: Derby commanded a ten-game win streak in this fixture from 2006 to 2013 – Leeds last won here in 2015 (2-1).|
|With polarising experience playing a massive part of this game – how will Lampard’s 706 games on English soil (as a player) stand-up to Bielsa’s 565 games as a world-renowned manager?|
|Derby haven’t won a matchday two game since their 2013/14 2-1 away win at Brighton.|
