A 3-0 success for the visitors is on offer at 9s with everything else in double figures and even a 1-1 draw is 23-2.

A 1-0 triumph for the hosts, meanwhile, is available at 25-1 with a 2-1 Crawley victory at 28s.

And it's business as usual for Leeds in the first scorer market with Patrick Bamford a clear 14-5 favourite to score first and odds on across the board as an any time scorer and no bigger than 10-13.

Rodrigo is next at 11-2 to net first with Pablo Hernandez 7s, Raphinha 15-2 and Helder Costa 8s.

Crawley's top scorer Max Watters is next in the market at 8s with fellow forward Tom Nichols as big as 16s to open the scoring and bigger than Ashley Nadesan (12s) and Sam Ashford (15s).

Whites players Jack Harrison (9s), Mateusz Klich (10s) and Ian Poveda (10s) are shorter whilst Niall Huggins is noticeably prominent in the first scorer market at 14s with Jack Jenkins also in there at 20s.

Leeds head coach Marcelo Bielsa has already said there will be no full debuts, hinting at a strong line up, and the bookies are confident Leeds will get the job done in 90 minutes.
