Leeds United come into this after a 6-2 win over Cagliari in their final pre-season clash on Sunday.
Rodrigo scored a hat-trick while Bamford struck twice before Koch wrapped up the game with a goal as well.
This ensured a 3rd win in pre-season for Leeds as they finished off their campaign in positive spirits and with confidence.
On the other hand, Wolves played out a 1-1 draw against Farense in their final pre-season clash on Sunday.
Ponde and Hwang scored for either side to ensure a share of the spoils as Wolves played out successive draws to end their pre-season.
With just 2 wins, it wasn’t the best of preparations for the Premier League side but Wolves have the potential to start off well and make a difference.
Both these teams last met in March during the EPL 2021-22 season, where Leeds won 3-2 away from home.
Last Matches of both teams:
Leeds 6-2 Cagliari
Farense 1-1 Wolves

Prediction: Leeds 2-1 Wolves
Leeds and Wolves have a number of players out due to injury. However, it is the visitors that don’t have a forward in Jimenez or Traore in the squad.
This is massive news for Leeds, which should help them secure a closely fought win due to the quality and fast paced players they possess.
Players to watch out for: Bamford, Aaronson, Neto and Moutinho.
