After a slap in the face against Liverpool on the last day (0-3), Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United finally hoped to secure their first victory of the season against Newcastle on Friday. Also disappointing since the start of the season, the Magpies have still not won and remain on a heavy defeat against Manchester United (4-1).
But the two formations failed to take advantage of it. While Raphina quickly opened the scoring for the Peacocks (1-0, 13th), Saint-Maximin responded just before the break (1-1, 44th). Despite Newcastle’s chances after the break, neither side has managed to make a difference. A result that does not suit anyone since Leeds is in 16th place before playing West Ham. Steve Bruce’s men are relegated before a trip to Watford.
