Leeds United vs. Fulham - Football Match Report

Leeds United vs. Fulham - Football Match Report - September 19, 2020

Leeds played the ball around in fluid fashion but a rash tackle by new German signing Robin Koch saw Joe Bryan go down in the penalty area and Mitrovic converted from the penalty spot for his 50th goal in 100 league appearances for Fulham.

Last weekend, the Whites suffered a 4-3 defeat at the hands of Liverpool away from home at Anfield in their opening Premier League game of the season. It was four as Costa completed his brace seven minutes after Bamford scored.

Fulham continued to probe further and were rewarded again this time on 67 minutes through Aleksandar Mitrovic who leaped high and powered in a brilliant header to bring score at 4-3. Klich stepped up to send Areola the wrong way to put Leeds back in front.

Mitrovic attempted to cut the deficit in half, but his effort was all wrong and Meslier gathered in easily.

Bamford then scored for the second straight match by stroking home a finish following a pass from Klich, before providing the cross that Costa swept in in the 57th for 4-1.

In the 62nd minute substitute Bobby Reid gave Fulham a glimmer of hope as he netted his side's second goal to make it 4-3.

And after Mitrovic headed in Tete's right-wing cross, Fulham nearly equalised when Neeskens Kebano's shot hit the post.

Leeds will start as favourites to see off Fulham, but the Cottagers are also still looking for their first points of the season. "That final period was the best part of this game".

Despite the insistence in the final minutes, The Whites secured the victory, the first for them in the top flight for 16 years. Costa established the lead early on, Bamford extended it and the Portugese scored what turned out to be the match victor.
