Our prediction for this match:
After playing out a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers, Leeds United will be aiming to return to winning ways when they take on Fleetwood Town in their third outing of the pre-season. Marcelo Bielsa is likely to stick to his rotation policy, with all Ayling, Dallas, and Roberts pushing for a start. As always, a man to watch in the Premier League side will be Raphinha, who impressed in the 2020/21 season.
Fleetwood, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Huddersfield Town. The League One side have been producing fine displays in pre-season, but Leeds United will surely pose a much bigger threat for the nominal hosts than their previous rivals. When the two teams met in the EFL Cup five years ago Leeds United eliminated Fleetwood Town on penalties. England international Kalvin Phillips is unlikely to feature for the Whites in Friday’s friendly.
