Leeds United vs Norwich City Predicted Lineup, Betting Tips, Odds, Injury News, H2H, Broadcast

Only one team after this match at Elland Road will play the final at Wembley Stadium

Leeds United will now play as hosts in this second leg of the EFL Championship play-off semi-finals. They were on their way in the first stage. After a 0-0 draw at Carrow Road, Daniel Farke’s men will look to make home advantage count.

Norwich City were the last team to qualify for the play-offs after finishing sixth in the regular season. Even though the Canaries played at home in the first leg, they were only able to maintain 39 percent of possession. Another surprising thing that happened in that game was that David Wagner’s side failed to score at home for the first time since December.

Players to watch

Crysencio Summerville (Leeds)

Crysencio Summerville tried to play his part and put pressure on the opposition on the left flank in the first leg. Summerville was a major player throughout the 2023-24 Championship season. The 22-year-old Dutch winger scored 19 goals while providing a total of 9 assists during the regular season.

Gabriel Sara (Norwich)

Gabriel Sara’s second season with Norwich City was truly impressive. After 46 league appearances this season, 13 goals and 12 assists were the final tally. The left-handed Brazilian is likely to be a key ingredient if his side come out on top.

Leeds United vs Norwich City match prediction

Norwich couldn’t make home advantage count in the first leg. They didn’t even manage to score at home for the first time since December and their possession was awful. Leeds had the second best defensive record in the entire division. I can score a goal or two and watch the game at home.
