Where to watch Leeds vs. Norwich: Latest team news and prediction

0

A spot in the Championship playoff final will be on the line when Leeds welcome Norwich to Elland Road for the second leg of their semifinal matchup on Thursday night.

The return leg is finely poised after the two sides drew 0-0 at Carrow Road last Saturday in the first leg of their Championship playoff semifinal.

Daniel Farke’s side will indeed have a home advantage, making them modest favourites to reach the final at Wembley later this month, albeit the Canaries have been in stunning form in the business end of the regular season and can’t be overlooked.

The Sporting News looks at the key details ahead of this game, including how to watch it across the world, kickoff times and the latest lineup news.

Daniel Farke and Co. will be without the services of versatile defender Pascal Struijk (groin) and star striker Patrick Bamford (unspecified), with the former ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing groin surgery, while the latter was sidelined for a few weeks and will be a major doubt for the Whites as he is nursing a “minor trauma to his patellar tendon.”

Daniel James overcame a costal cartilage injury and an oblique abdominal muscle rupture to feature as a second-half substitute in the first leg after passing a late fitness test. The Welsh winger will be vying for a starting spot on the right flank ahead of Wilfried Gnonto.

Farke may be enticed to choose the same midfield trio of Archie Gray, Glen Kamara, and Ilia Gruev, but one of them might make way for Joel Piroe to start in attack if the German manager decides to reinforce his frontline, which should also contain Georginio Rutter and Crysencio Summerville.

Leeds predicted XI (4-3-3, right to left): Meslier (GK) — Byram, Rodon, Ampadu, Firpo — Gray, Gruev, Kamara — Gnonto, Rutter, Summerville

Leeds subs (9): TBC

Norwich, on the other hand, will be sweating over the fitness of striker Josh Sargent’s fitness after he was hooked off in the last moments of the first leg with an ankle issue. Ashley Barnes is also a concern after missing the first leg due to a calf injury, so the likely absence of both him and Sargent could open the door for striker Sydney van Hooijdonk to make his first start for the Canaries since arriving on loan in January.

Having said that, Norwich City manager David Wagner is still hopeful that both Sargent and Barnes will be fit in time for the game. Liam Gibbs (muscle) and Onel Hernandez (broken foot) are still working their way back to match speed and remain sidelined here.

Norwich predicted XI (4-3-3 right to left): Gunn (GK) — Stacey, Duffy, Gibson, Giannoulis — Nunez, McLean, Sara — Rowe, Van Hooijdonk, Sainz

Norwich subs (9): TBC

Leeds will undoubtedly back themselves to record a victory here in front of a raucous Elland Road crowd, and they have previously defeated Norwich at home this season, so they enter Thursday’s encounter as slight favourites.

Add to it the likely absence of Norwich’s top-scorer Josh Sargent, the Whites may just come out on top of a scruffy, tighly-contested game at Elland Road.

Prediction: Leeds United 2-1 Norwich
