Can Leeds beat Leicester to the Championship trophy? 

Leicester City looked unstoppable during the first half of the season as they put together a spectacular run of form to emerge as massive favourites for the Championship title. 

Enzo Maresca’s side suffered just three league defeats in their first 25 matches. 

However, things have changed dramatically in the English second tier in the last few weeks. 

The Foxes’ 14-point lead at the top has been reduced to only three after they collected one win in their last five games. 

Their latest game was a 2-2 draw at Hull City on Saturday, with Jamie Vardy scoring both goals for the visitors. 

Momentum with Leeds 

Leeds United are flying high in the Championship and hitting peak form at the perfect time.  

The Whites have slashed the gap to only three points on Leicester following 11 victories from 12 matches in 2024. 

This looked unlikely following their miserable start to the season when they claimed just one win in their first five matches. 


Leeds are now second in the Championship table following their 2-0 success at Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night coupled with Ipswich Town’s slip-up at Cardiff City. 

The Owls were on a four-game winning, run but goals in either half from Patrick Bamford and Wilfried Gnonto sealed a comfortable victory for Daniel Farke’s men

The momentum has massively shifted towards Leeds in recent weeks, and they are now the favourites for the Championship trophy. 

The Whites have a favourable run of fixtures and are not expected to drop many points before the end of the campaign. 

The Yorkshire side’s trickiest fixture is their final game against Southampton in May.
