Man United vs Leeds United: Red Devils kick off pre-season tour in Oslo

Man United vs Leeds United: Pre-season tour begins with high hopes.

Manchester United will face off against Leeds United in their first pre-season tour match in Oslo. After ending their last season on a successful note, the Red Devils are determined to start their pre-season journey with a win as they set their sights on more trophies in the upcoming season. On the other hand, Leeds United, who were relegated from the Premier League, also want to begin their pre-season on a positive note.

Last season, Manchester United started their pre-season tour with 0 points from their first two games. However, this did not define their entire season. They ended their six-year trophy drought by winning the Carabao Cup and reached the finals of the FA Cup, only to be stopped by Manchester City. They finished the season in third place in the Premier League table, securing qualification for the Champions League after a year of absence.

Under the leadership of coach Erik Ten Hag, Manchester United has been working towards strengthening their team in pursuit of more trophies. Despite facing obstacles in the slow takeover process, they have recently acquired Mason Mount from Chelsea and are still pursuing Andre Onana and a striker. With challenging fixtures against Arsenal, Real Madrid, and Dortmund on the horizon, the Red Devils are determined to kick off their pre-season campaign with a victory.

Leeds United's survival hopes last season came down to their final matches in the Premier League. Despite facing a struggling Tottenham Hotspur, their defense let them down in a 4-1 defeat. Even if they had won, they would have still been relegated due to Everton's victory over Bournemouth. Now, in the Championship, they have their new coach Daniel Farke to guide them.

Unlike Manchester United, Leeds United had a disappointing season, resulting in their relegation to the Championship. Before their campaign begins next month, they have three club friendlies against Manchester United, Monaco, and Hearts. Their goal is to secure promotion back to the Premier League in their first attempt, so they will be eager to start their pre-season tour with a win. However, facing Manchester United will not make it an easy task.

The predicted lineups for the match are as follows:
Manchester United: Heaton; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Fernandez; Mount, Fred, Mainoo; Antony, Martial, Diallo
Leeds United: Van den Heuvel; Drameh, Ayling, Cooper, Struijk; Rutter, Gyabi, Shackleton, Greenwood; Bamford, Gelhardt

The match will be held at the Ullevaal Stadion. Fans can watch the live streaming of the club friendlies on InsideSport and follow the updates on Google News.
