Leeds – Stoke : Preview & Prediction
Founded in 1919, the Leeds United Football Club is a historic club in England. He knew magnificent periods with European victories, and especially between 1960 and 1975, and at the beginning of the 90s. 19th at the end of the 2003-2004 season, Leeds is relegated in Championship and has not found the elite since. He even had 3 seasons in Ligue One (third division) between 2007 and 2010. When the club recruited “El Loco” Marcelo Bielsa, the goal was clear: to find the Premier League. 3rd last year, Leeds failed at the play-offs. Leader this year with 1 point ahead of West Bromwich, the club aims for direct ascent but also the title of champion!
Founded in 1863, Stoke City is a very old English club. Relegated from D1 in 1985, the club will have to wait 23 years and the 2007-2008 season to be promoted again and find the Premier League. After 10 seasons in the elite, the club will be relegated 2 years ago after a sad 19th place. After a 16th place last year, Stoke is worse for the moment with a current 18th place and a maintenance still very far from being acquired. With only 2 points ahead of the first relegation Middlesbrough, this trip to the leader looks very tense.
