It all comes down to this. Leeds United and Southampton go head-to-head inside Wembley Stadium on Sunday (15:00, Sky Sports Main Event) in the Championship play-off final, with a place in the Premier League at stake.

The Saints beat Leeds home and away in the regular season, but as they say, form goes out the window in a game of this magnitude. Using Betfred's #PickYourPunt feature, former Whites goalkeeper Paul Robinson has put together an 8/1 bet builder that has been boosted from 6/1 for this contest.

  • Crysencio Summerville anytime goalscorer
  • Leeds to win
  • Over 10.5 corners

#PickYourPunt pays at 8/1 (was 6/1)

Crysencio Summerville anytime goalscorer

What a season this young man has had. Crysencio Summerville has had an outstanding campaign in the Championship with 20 goals and nine assists, which secured him the accolade of Championship Player of the Season.

The Dutch winger will be looked to by Leeds boss Daniel Farke and his teammates to be the difference maker in this crunch clash with Southampton, and I believe he can deliver on the biggest stage.

Summerville has shown his class throughout the campaign and he will be fired up to deliver another moment of magic for the Whites, who are looking to beat the Saints for the first time this term. He wrapped up Leeds' clinical 4-0 routing of Norwich in the semi-final second leg at Elland Road, and I expect him to channel that momentum to Wembley.

I'm backing him to find the back of the net here.

Leeds to win (in 90 minutes)

There is no doubting that Leeds have their work cut out for them to win this match, as Southampton have been a thorn in their side this season. The Saints won both fixtures in the regular season but when it comes to finals, form goes out the window.

I believe after playing the Saints twice, Farke will have a better understanding of how to get the best out of his side against this particular opponent. I also cannot overlook Farke's previous experiences in the Championship with Norwich City, with whom he won the Championship with twice.

The play-off final is unfamiliar territory for him as it settled over a game and not a season, but I do think his Canaries promotions will help him here. He comes up against Russell Martin, who only boasts a promotion from League Two.

The German holds an advantage in that regard and I'm sure he will have a clearer idea of how his side can stop the Saints at Wembley on Sunday.

Over 10.5 corners

I do like adding legs surrounding corners to my bet builders and I think this is a game that should have no shortage of them.

This season, Leeds have averaged 9.94 corners per game, while Southampton's figure is slightly higher at 11. This bodes well for this heavyweight clash between the third and fourth best teams in the division at Wembley.

Both teams are stacked with attacking quality so expect both defences and goalkeepers to be extremely busy on Sunday. I'm confident we will see a high volume of corners in this one.
