Coming a little to close to relegation last season in the Premier League, Leeds are looking to open a new campaign on a positive note. They welcome Wolves at Elland Road on Saturday.

Leeds bid welcome to Wolves, who ended last season as number 10 in the Premier League. The hosts can look back on a season which saw them end up as number 17.

We expect to see some solid dedication from both Leeds and Wolves as starting a season with a defeat is an undesirable outcome for anyone's morale.

Leeds are relatively average in the art of goal-scoring these days. They claimed a steady 13 goals in their previous ten matches, for an average of 1.3 goals per game. They simultaneously allowed their opponents 15 goals, or an average of 1.5 goals a game. Furthermore, they fought their way to two clean sheets in this run.

Wolves scored ten goals, conceded 20 and kept their opponents from scoring one times in ten matches.

Leeds vs Wolves Preview

Leeds claimed just a single measly home win from a possible six in the Premier League, which also saw them drawing two and losing three matches, in which they scored four and conceded 13 goals.

A top half finish is the dream target for Leeds, although keeping their Premier League status for another season has to be the priority.

In their last six Premier League away matches, Wolves failed to win more than once. In stead, they've drawn one and lost four, scoring four while also conceding eight times.

Finishing inside the top half is the bare minimum Wolves expect for this season, but the ideal target is a spot in Europe.

Leeds and Wolves are struggling to keep opponents at bay, which makes both teams to score look like the value bet at Elland Road
