Bet of the day: Leeds United to beat Aston Villa to nil
Robbie Purves | 29 December 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Leeds possess one of the best away records in the league
- Villa lost their previous matchup with Leeds
- Three of Gary Monk’s last four wins have been to nil
Leeds 19/4 to beat Villa to nil
Gary Monk’s promotion chasing Leeds United outfit will look to make it four wins from the same number of games, as they journey to Villa Park to face a Steve Bruce outfit that lost last time out to the Yorkshire team.
Last time these two sleeping giants met, Leeds emerged 2-0 victors over Aston Villa and three of Monk’s last four wins have been to nil – making Coral’s bet of the day of 19/4 for the Whites to win to nil appealing.
United have been on a terrific run of late that has seen them shoot up the table and into play-off contention with five wins from six outings. In half of these games, Monk’s men have kept a clean sheet and has been a hallmark of this side’s voyage up the table.
Whites triumph while Villans fire blanks
Leeds possess one of the best on the road records in the division and have triumphed on four of their last six ventures away from Elland Road.
For the first time in years, there is genuine optimism at the former great club. After 13 long and painful years bumbling around the EFL, there appears to be momentum growing.
When the sides met earlier this month, Kemar Roofe terrorised Villa’s defence and will look do to so again tonight. Roofe starred in Leeds’ 4-1 away win over Preston North End on his last outing, scoring one and assisting two.
