Manchester United will play at home against Leeds in the first round of the English Championship. The match will take place on August 14, beginning at 14:30 Moscow time. Manchester United – Leeds: forecast , rate, odds, statistics.
Manchester United finished second in the last England championship, but the club was still unhappy with the season.
The Red Devils lost the championship race to Manchester City – and this is the main complaint against the team and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer , for whom the new season is likely to be a key one. If there is no progress, they can say goodbye to the Norwegian.
In the summer, “MJ” has issued two high-profile transfers. The team was joined by attacking midfielder Borussia Dortmund Jadon Sancho and Real Madrid defender Rafael Varane . However, it is not yet very clear whether they will be able to play in the next match.
But it is known for sure that Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani will not play . The Uruguayan has just come out of vacation, and the Englishman will miss several months due to a shoulder injury.
Leeds finished ninth in the Premier League last season. For a team that has been absent from the elite division for a very long time, this is a major achievement.
Of course, Leeds’ success is largely due to Marcelo Bielsa . Fortunately, the club’s management managed to persuade the Argentinean to stay for at least one more season.
There were no major changes in the Leeds line-up either. One can only recall the signing of a contract with Barcelona defender Junior Firpo.
Leeds played two friendly matches in August. After a major defeat to Ajax, Bielsa’s side drew with Villarreal, which recently fought very well against Chelsea in the European Super Cup match.
