The DER vs LU Dream11 match preview –

The second semi-final of the English championship will see Derby County host Leeds United in the first leg, with a feisty history between the two sides, on Saturday.

Derby County finished the season in the seventh spot, and it has been a successful outing so far. This is the first time that Chelsea legend Frank Lampard has dawned the role of being a manager. He has done a good job, to say the least, and it will be interesting to see how fairs in these high-pressure situations. The team has some really talented players, and their aspirations of making the Premier League will push them to give it their all in both legs of the tie.

Meanwhile, Leeds United is coached by one of the better managers of the sport in Marcelo Bielsa. This team was once the best one in England, and used to compete to win the Premier League regularly, but has fallen down to the English championship. It has been a while since they made their way back, and the oddsmakers are saying that this just might be their year. This team has been really strong on both ends of the pitch, and their complete game style will only help them be consistent in this tie which will be sealing the fate of either side.
