Match Preview: Crystal Palace U23 vs Leeds u23
Crystal Palace and Leeds United youth teams will lock horns in their Premier League 2 clash and it’s expected to be an interesting game for many reasons. Leeds United U23 boss Mark Jackson will take his players on a trip to Crystal Palace where they will be looking to seal their 10th win on the bounce.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, are the fourth-placed team in the league but they do have one game in hand ahead of their opponents. They will also be looking forward to playing their best game of football in their bid to finish the season as remarkably as they can.
While Leeds United are currently on a 9-game winning run, Palace are also on a winning streak of 5 games at home. In all of those five games, they have been able to score 16 goals and have let in just one goal. This piece of stat shows just how much of an intriguing clash it will be between these two teams.
Sam Greenwood and Joe Gelhardt, Leeds United Attackers, remain the league’s top scorers, with both players having scored seven goals each in this current campaign. However, while the two players are their team’s most potent goalscorers, they have other players in the team that can cause upset and score goals at any time too.
If Leeds United win the tie, they will be extending their points gap over second-placed team Stoke City to 13 points while Palace securing three points will take them to a total of 26 points and closer to Wolves and Stoke.
