Rookie Leeds defeated the host Sheffield 1-0 with a goal in the 88th round of the 3rd round of the Premier League.
The fate of the match at Bramall Lane is decided just two minutes before the end of the official match time. From the middle, Rodrigo opened the ball to the left for Jack Harrison to cross into the penalty area for midfielder Bamford to hit the ground, beating Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.
The 1-0 result in favor of the visitors seemed unfair for Sheffield
Sheffield worked so hard in the second half of the second half but was a worthy reward for Leeds United. Being a guest on the football field was seen as a phenomenon in the Premier League last season, but Leeds held the ball 64.3%, launched 17 shots and nine of them took place in the opponent’s 16m50 area.
After rejecting Luke Ayling’s shot, the 22-year-old goalkeeper flew with his fingertips to push the ball over the bar from the Stuart Dallas leg. Leeds also defeated Ramsdale in the second half, when Dallas took the way and tricked the goalkeeper. But the goal still did not come to the visitors, as Chris Basham stepped back to break the ball on the line.
Ramsdale then shone again, blocking the shot from Ian Poveda – the player Bielsa came on in the 66th minute. But Leeds’ attack effort also paid off with Bamford’s at the end of the second half. This is the striker’s third table three times with the football team coming from West Yorkshire this season. This was after the Liverpool net kicked in on an opening day, and then Fulham in the second round.
Sheffield is not bad at playing
All game, Sheffield had 14 shots on goal, but only two of them were clear opportunities. In the 29th minute, after a harmonious arrangement between Osborn and McGoldrick, John Lundstram ended the ball in the low corner, but could not win the reflex and great reach of Leeds goalkeeper Illan Messier. In the 40th minute, it was George Baldock’s turn to be disappointed with his cannon shot at the top corner denied by Messier.
A 1-0 win gave the West Yorkshire’s football club another three points after a 4-3 win over Fulham – rivals with the same promotion last season – in the second round. This will be the basis for coach Bielsa and students to be more confident when heading to the match against Man City in round 4 on October 3.
