|Boxing Day saw Birmingham City stop their opponents from scoring over 1.5 goals for the first time in five games, as they ended a three-match losing streak with a 1-1 draw at Blackburn Rovers. Expect no clean sheet here, as the ‘Blues’ have registered just one from their last nine Championship home matches.|
|Six of Birmingham’s 11 home league games this term saw both sides level at half-time (HT: W3, D6, L2) with five of those half-time draws goalless. However, Birmingham are yet to see a 0-0 full-time draw at St. Andrews, as the vast majority of the goals scored and conceded here have arrived in the second half (72% – 1.64 second-half goals on average per match).|
|Though winless in three matches (D2, L1), promotion-chasing Leeds United have won more away league games in 2019 (11) than in any calendar year since 2009 (12). Interestingly, in that season (2009/10) Leeds went on to earn promotion, finishing second in League One.|
|Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds have been slow-burners away from home this Championship campaign, scoring a whopping 15 of their 18 away goals after half-time (83.33% – 1.5 goals on average per second half). Moreover, a third of their away goals have come beyond the 75th minute.|
|Players to watch: Lukas Jutkiewicz is the only Birmingham player to net more than once at home this season – he’s scored five of their 13 home league goals.|
|Egzijan Alioski was recently the first goalscorer (excluding OGs) in consecutive games that both ended 2-0 in Leeds’ favour, including their most recent away victory.|
|Stat attack: Birmingham have averaged 2.17 bookings per match across the last six league H2Hs (LEE: 1.67).|
|Bielsa has won only one of three managerial H2Hs with Birmingham (W1, L2) – all were settled by a single-goal margin.|
|Half of Leeds’ away league games have produced a goalless first half.|
