Leeds United's 1-0 defeat last Friday was their 1 6th consecutive competitive game without a draw (W7, L9). Though Leeds have taken only one win in four Premier League (PL) matches (W1, L3), they maintain a comfortable mid-table position.
Leeds are unbeaten in competitive H2Hs played on a Tuesday (W3, DI), but can they deliver under pressure? The 'Whites' have a 55.56% loss rate when starting as PL pre-match home favourites (W4, L5), though they've scored in five of their last six home PL fixtures
Southampton ended their worst ever run of six straight PL defeats by drawing 1-1 with Chelsea (Feb 20), and were finally rewarded for featuring in three consecutive games in which both sides scored.
With seven (50%) of Southampton's PL away goals this term coming via set pieces or penalties, they'll look to capitalise on dead-ball situations.
However, that has also worked against them, as they've now conceded five league penalties this term — one fewer than their record whole-season total.
PREDICTION: GG & DRAW. CS 1-1
