(EFE) – The Spanish central Diego Llorente scored the winning goal for Leeds United against Watford (1-0), breaking the negative streak of Marcelo Bielsa’s team, which had equaled its worst league start in 76 years.
Leeds accumulated six games without a win before this game, their most since Bielsa arrived on the bench at Elland Road, and it had to be Llorente who ended the curse of this season.
The center-back, who has not entered Luis Enrique’s call-up for the next matches in Spain, pushed a play into the net before 20 minutes into the game, which was enough to beat Xisco Muñoz’s Watford.
The ‘Hornets’ have not just started this season and are fourteenth, with seven points, while Leeds this victory serves to catch some air and get out of relegation. Those from Bielsa, who had managed to tie three games so far, rise to sixteenth place, with six units.
