Elland Road will host Tuesday’s postponed fixture between Leeds United and Southampton, the two teams who are almost level on points in the Premier League standings. The Whites aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Arsenal and Wolverhampton, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Saints. Even though all Rodrigo, Poveda, Phillips, Koch, Forshaw, and Berardi are sidelined with injuries, home win should be considered as Southampton have been struggling at the back of late, according to Football Predictions.
The Saints recorded their last league win on January 4, 2021, and seeing that they conceded 15 goals in total in the previous four league fixtures, we are tempted to put our money on Marcelo Bielsa’s troops. All Obafemi, Smallbone, Walcott, and Walker-Pieters are out of contention through injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team ahead of the midweek clash.
Leeds United vs Southampton Preview: H2H (Head-to-Head)
Leeds have won 45 of the previous 92 games that they have played against Southampton, losing 27 of those, Sportskeeda cites.

A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Leeds have slipped down to 12th following back-to-back losses away to Arsenal and Wolves but were far from disgraced in both defeats, says Sports Bwin.
United’s 1-0 reversal at Molineux was particularly harsh, with Illan Meslier’s unfortunate own goal deciding a close contest.
At the other end, Patrick Bamford had a late leveler ruled out for offside, while the Whites hit the woodwork twice and had other good chances saved.
“Look at the chances we had, we had double what they did, and we defended well, we attacked well,” said Marcelo Bielsa. “There were only a few moments in the game where we didn’t dominate.
“We had 10 chances and we weren’t able to score a goal, they had five and scored one. That explains the game.
“I can’t be upset with the goal because it wasn’t Illan’s fault. The offensive game we had was sufficient to score at least one goal and in a game of small margins I had the feeling we were the superior side.”
Leeds have still won half of their last six matches, getting the better of Newcastle, Leicester and Crystal Palace.
Jack Harrison netted in all of those victories, so 7/2 for the attack-minded midfielder to score in a home win here stands out from the Leeds vs Southampton odds.
Last Leeds line-up: Meslier, Ayling, Cooper, Struijk, Roberts, Dallas, Harrison, Klich, Shackleton, Bamford, Raphinha.

Southampton stopped the rot of six straight league defeats when drawing 1-1 with an in-form Chelsea outfit on Saturday.
Saints took the lead through a fine goal from Takumi Minamino and a shocked Chelsea needed Mason Mount’s penalty to rescue a point on the south coast.
“This result gives us a lift mentally because we didn’t get what we deserved in the last few weeks,” said Ralph Hasenhuttl.
“To take a point against Chelsea is not easy, but a few parts of our game were very good today.
“The goal was exactly what we are trying to do, beautifully played.”
However, the feeling was that Chelsea failed to play up to recent high standards, with the Blues dominating possession but lacking quality in the final third.
Preference is for the Whites to prevail here and 17/2 for a 2-1 scoreline is added to our Leeds vs Southampton betting tips.
Last Saints line-up: McCarthy, Bertrand, Vestergaard, Salisu, Bednarek, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Redmond, Djenepo, Ings, Minamino.
Leeds United vs Southampton Prediction
Leeds are looking for a win to bounce back from two straight losses, but it won't be easy despite Southampton not winning in the league since early January.
That performance against Chelsea would have given them plenty of confidence. We are predicting that Southampton will go one better and win this game.
Prediction: Leeds United 1-2 Southampton
