Leeds had started the match pretty heated, threatening to take down Newcastle. However, the game ended without a win as both the teams had a tie of 1:1. For Leeds, Raphinha is the one who got the goal. On the other hand, Allan Saint-Maximin made the score for Newcastle. Leeds’ Raphinha had taken the lead ahead of Newcastle with a kick that landed on the net. He was assisted by Rodrigo, who tricked the Newcastle goalkeeper making the goal.
Newcastle was unhappy with how things were unfolding, which made Saint-Maximin take the ball and wait for enough time to find the right spot to score. He leveled the match before half-time. However, when the game started, there was hope for Leeds to win the game before the first half. Unluckily, Firpo made an attempt that hit the bar, throwing away the chance.
After the break, Newcastle decided to change their positioning to four at the back, giving Saint-Maximin the advantage to test Illan Meslier twice in the Leeds’ goal. Both the sides were not happy with the match result as they were each looking for their first win of the season. The teams may have been on the wrong end of the table, but Newcastle’s coach Bruce was above the waters with one point. He needed to change as calls had been made for him to leave the club once the game ended.
Newcastle had a penalty shot after Dan James made a foul in the box when the match was one-nil. Leeds coach Marcelo Bielsa is still on his toes trying to find his first win of the 2021/2022 Premier League campaign. Last year the team did pretty impressive by winning 5-2 at home.
During the Newcastle v Leeds match, over 30 shots were made, but sadly only two made it to the back of the net. Leeds made no shots on target, while Newcastle made seven shots. The possession rate for Leeds was 65% and 35% for Newcastle. Luckily enough, both the teams did not get any red cards. Leeds made 541 passes, and Newcastle made 301, but the pass accuracy was 85% for Leeds and 70% for Newcastle.
