⏱ Game over

It was a draw in the city of Lancashire and none of them took the honors of the game.

Blackburn started winning and did less for the game, but their happiness did not last long, as Marcelo Bielsa's team pressed the accelerator and tied quickly.

The white team searched until the end of the match, but without success and that is something their manager should work on, because they arrive well to the last quarter, but they are not able to finish the plays well.

Blackburn will have to work hard to improve their performances and make a good role in the next season.


4:19 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 90

It is not yet known how much time will be added, but it will not be much, since the game was run and little interrupted.
4:16 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 86

We enter the final stretch of the match, the game could go either way, although as it was almost throughout the match, the ball is Leeds', looking to score the second and take the win.
4:14 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 82

The match is currently stopped so that the Leeds center-back can be treated, as he was injured after an offensive play by Blackburn Rovers.
4:12 PM2 months ago


Now it was Leeds who scored from the feet of Pascal Strujik, in the 82nd minute, and Bielsa's team wanted to go long and turn the score in their favor.
4:11 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 80

The game is running out of time and Leeds is still without a draw, it seems that the victory will go to the team of the red rose.

⏱ Min 68

With just over 20 minutes left to play, more changes are coming, but the match looks like it will not open the scoreboard, as the teams are moving further and further away from the goal.
3:55 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 65

The nil-nil scoreline persists, the idea of Brereton entering the game was a good one, but he looks very lonely in the Blackburn attack, so so far the move has been of no use to coach Tony Mowbray.
3:52 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 60

The rain begins to fall in the match and the ball starts to become more difficult to dominate, the field is smoother and the teams must take advantage of this to take mid-distance shots and complicate the goalkeepers.
3:49 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 58

The offensive surge of Leeds continues, it is the team that tries the most, looking for it on the wings, through the middle, with Raphinha who again got into the game, but still fails to score the first of the match.
3:47 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 55

The home team wants to look more offensive, hence the entry of Brereton, who was one of the surprises in the last Copa América wearing the Chilean national team's shirt.
3:44 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 52

The bench begins to move in the two teams


Dolan came off to make way for Ben Brereton.

3:39 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 50

It is still scoreless in this match, although Leeds is trying harder, the goal can come at any time in either goal.
3:36 PM2 months ago

⏱ Second half begins

The second half started, the final part of this match is already being played at the Blackburn Rovers stadium.
3:21 PM2 months ago

⏱ First half ends

A first half where Leeds was superior, had more of the ball, made good offensive plays, but still can't find the way to the goal. They will have to improve their finishing if they want to change the history of this match.

On the other hand, Blackburn Rovers is not collectively, the little they produce is by quick plays of few touches or by individuals, so if this team wants to win the match, they will have to work hard to break the defensive lines of the team managed by Bielsa. 


3:18 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 45

The referee did not add any more time and just after 45 minutes, the match was over.

The last few minutes have been all Leeds, who have accelerated and have all of Blackburn pinned back in their own half. 

The visitors' goal is hot.

Raphinha shot from half distance, the ball looked like it was going to go in, but ended up being cleared by the goalkeeper, who with a changed hand, sent it to the corner.


3:09 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 36

Very good collective play by Leeds, which ended in a corner from the left and with a chance for the tall players of the white team.
3:07 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 33

Blackburn came close with their two full-backs, first Pickering crossed from the left and then Nyambe arrived on the other side to shoot awkwardly and ended up sending it into the stands.

⏱ Min 30

Armstrong's shot from half distance, but the ball went wide and posed no danger to the Leeds goal.
3:01 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 28

Again Leeds came again, this time with very little force, but again we had attacking play in the areas.
2:59 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 25

The game is very low in offensive play, the ball is disputed in the middle of the field and there is no clear dominator of the game.
2:57 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 23

Blackburn found it very difficult to get dangerous attacking play on the Leeds goal, while the white team lowered the intensity and tries to play with a lot of ball rotation and opening spaces.

The home team is now dominating the game and controlling the ball, but without getting close to the opponent's area.
2:52 PM2 months ago

Raphinha's play on the right flank is starting to weigh heavily and that's where Leeds are loading all their play.
2:50 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 16

Great chance for Leeds, from the feet of Raphinha who broke down the right and looked for Rodrigo, who shot and goalkeeper Kaminski had to do his best to clear and save his team.
2:49 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 15

Leeds steal the ball, try to lower the intensity of play that Blackburn had and play through the middle.
2:48 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 12

Great counter-attacking play for Leeds, which ended with Rodrigo feeding Harrison on the edge of the box, who shot, but the defense got through and managed to clear the ball and end the danger that this move, elaborated with long transitions and through the middle of the field, signified.
2:44 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 10

The home team is the owner of the ball, tries to play offensively everywhere on the field and wants to score the first goal quickly.


2:43 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 8

There was a chance for Blackburn from the set piece, with a free kick taken in three-quarters of the pitch, which travelled through the air into the Meslier goalkeeper's area and was poorly taken by the home team's striker.
2:40 PM2 months ago

⏱ Min 5

Now it is Bielsa's team that is trying to take possession of the ball, to start building up play with horizontal touches.

Leeds and its preparation for the 21/22 Premier League season

Leeds United has only played one pre-season match and won it 2-3 against Guiseley, which participates in the Conference North, the sixth most important soccer league in the English country.

It was a match full of goals, with a lot of dynamism, back and forth play and too much rose in the middle of the field, as we are used to in soccer from the northern European island. 

3:51 AM2 months ago

Blackburn Rovers, one win and one loss in their first two preseason friendlies

The Lancashire team has just played three friendly matches, which will serve as preparation for the upcoming season. 

The first game was won by the minimum difference against Fylde, a team of the English second division.

The second game was lost by a score of 1-0 against Everton, which plays in the Premier League. 

And their third friendly match was lost by 2-0 against Bradford, a team of the fourth division of English soccer. 

So, the team that will play at home in this very attractive match against Leeds is not in a good level.
