Leeds United will hope to bridge the gap between themselves and the automatic promotion spots.

Two Championship sides with promotion ambitions will collide as Leeds United travel to the Stadium of Light to take on managerless Sunderland on Tuesday.

Daniel Farke’s side enter the game in excellent form after a run of eight victories from their last 10 Championship matches. The German is targeting a third promotion from this division as a manager and will see this match as the perfect opportunity to pile on pressure on second place Ipswich as the Tractor Boys target back to back promotions.

The Championship match promises to be an intriguing encounter which could have huge implications on the promotion race for the remainder of the campaign.

Sunderland vs Leeds United head to head

Sunderland and Leeds United are facing each other in the league for the first time since the 2017/18 season.

That campaign marked Sunderland’s relegation to the third-tier of English football, while Leeds had to settle for a 13th place finish with Paul Heckinbottom just months before the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa.

Leeds recorded a 2-0 victory at the Stadium of Light that season with Samuel Saiz and Stuart Dallas scoring the goals.

The victory marked Leeds’ 40th victory in 93 matches against Sunderland. The Black Cats have been the victors on 34 occasions, while the other 19 games have finished level.
