Leeds United's new predicted Championship finishing position after Ipswich Town triumph and multiple fresh boosts
Daniel Farke’s side headed for Saturday’s clash at early leaders Ipswich Town still seeking their first win of the new campaign but goals from Georginio Rutter, Willy Gnonto, new signing Joel Piroe and Luis Sinisterra gave the Whites the big boost of a 4-3 victory.
Piroe joined the club from Swansea City on Thursday for a fee north of £10m and the 24-year-old Dutch striker took just 19 minutes to net first Whites goal in the weekend triumph at Portman Road. Gnonto and Sinisterra, meanwhile, both excelled in their first games back having been reintegrated back into the squad, providing two more big boosts for Farke’s side.
Leeds were 19th in the early table heading to Ipswich but their first three-point haul has moved them up to 13th place ahead of next weekend’s hosting of rock-bottom Sheffield Wednesday who are yet to pick up a point.
Saturday’s win for Leeds has caused a shake up in the Championship betting market and this is where the bookmakers are now predicting the Whites to finish based on the very latest title odds and relegation prices to determine sides down towards the bottom. Leeds had been predicted to finish in fifth place before this weekend’s games.
Harry Kane on Saturday bettered a record first set by legendary German striker Gerd Mueller when he hit a hat-trick in Bayern Munich's 7-0 rout of Bochum which took the champions back to the top of the Bundesliga.Bayern have now beaten Bochum 7-0 in three of their past five fixtures.
