Leeds United: The away goal in the first leg isn't worth more, so if these teams are level on aggregate it will go straight to extra time, but Leeds has to love where it is entering this game. That slim advantage, while also playing at home, sets them up nicely. Expect them to play quick, to not play super cautious. They'll try to take it to Derby early and deliver the knockout punch.
Derby County: It has to get better after the first leg. The team was slow, lacked ideas and never looked like much of a threat. Conceding early may just mean game over for them, so Frank Lampard's club has to be patient, build up in attack, make those diagonal runs and try to get back into this. It won't be easy, as Derby has lost all three times its played Leeds this season.
Leeds hold serve at home and advances to the final at Wembley.
