The Leeds vs Norwich live stream today is the second leg of a fascinating EFL Championship playoff semi-final, with a place at Wembley tantalizingly close for the winner in the search of Premier League soccer next season — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.

The teams are in and Leeds make one change from the first leg as Joel Piroe comes in for Sam Byram, which means that Archie Gray should revert to right-back after playing as a No10 last time out. Otherwise, it's as you were for the Whites, with Crysencio Summerville, Georginio Ruter and Wilfried Gnonto all starting in attack, with Welsh duo Ethan Ampadu and Joe Rodon center-backs. Joe Gelhardt is on the bench.

Norwich, meanwhile, also make one change as forward Ashley Barnes wins his fitness battle to be included from the start, with Borja Sainz dropping to the bench. That means top scorer Josh Sargent continues up front, with Gabriel Sara and impressive youngster Jonathan Rowe in support. Ben Gibson and Shane Duffy start, as expected in defense, with Angus Gunn in goal.

Leeds' 15-game unbeaten run to begin 2024 raised hopes of an immediate Premier League return but Daniel Farke's side blew up just when it mattered most. Winning just four points from their final 16 available, United had to make do with third place and a playoff spot. Forward Wilfried Gnonto felt aggrieved at not being awarded a first-half penalty but despite the presence of Crysencio Summerville and Archie Gray, they had to settle for a draw and rely on second-leg home advantage.

Some 17 points behind their playoff opponents in the regular season with just one win from their final five outings, sixth-place Norwich went toe-to-toe with Leeds in the first leg with goalkeeper Angus Gunn and experienced center-back duo Shane Duffy and Ben Gibson impressing. The Canaries will be sweating on the fitness of 16-goal top scorer Josh Sargent in the Elland Road bear pit, with the U.S. international forced off at the weekend with a knock. Up against former boss Farke, City are desperate to avoid a third successive season in the second tier.

Both teams will want to secure an advantage ahead of the second leg later this week, so read on to find out you can watch a Leeds vs Norwich live stream wherever you are today. Plus, make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action with our how to watch Premier League live streams guide.
