In a game with a changing result, Leeds United won a fundamental victory to climb the ranks of the Premier League and renew their expectations. It was 5-2 against Newcastle, with the backlash manual used at the end of the game.
The story did not start well on Elland Road for those led by Marcelo Bielsa, who started down the scoreboard due to an oversight in the last line well taken advantage of by Jeff Hendrick, who overtook the Magpies. But through their scorer, Patrick Bamford, who caught a rebound in the area, the homeowners reacted while still averaging the first half.
Los del Loco took the reins of the match in the final stage, although only in the epilogue they would define it. The Spaniard Rodrigo Moreno popped into the area to turn the story around before the visit, by means of the airway, linked up again with Ciaran Clark. The Whites did not give up in their attempts to seal the victory and went ahead again due to the excursion in attack of Stuart Dallas, who appeared like a ghost at the far post to make it 3-2.
Newcastle was in search of agonizing equality and ended up losing protection in the final moments, to the point that it was practically unopposed in two attacks well used by the host team. First, Macedonian Ezjgan Alioski effectively defined a counterattack in which Leeds finished with vast numerical superiority. And in injury time Jack Harrison rehearsed a formidable run with a later left-footed shot at the corner to decree final figures.
With the result in favor, the West Yorkshiremen cut a losing streak of two losses in a row, approached the entrance area to the international cups and also regained their confidence before facing the classic against Manchester United (tomorrow they will visit Sheffield United by date 13) at Old Trafford next Sunday. It is a meeting with great rivalry between the fans that has not been disputed for 16 years due to the relegation of Leeds.
