A masterful jump from Rodrygo grabbed the headlines when Leeds and Newcastle shared points at St James’ Park on Friday night.
Newcastle Leeds 1-1 (1-1):
The match was only 13 minutes old when the accident occurred. Ravenha hit the Newcastle square hard, as Rodrygo waited. Instead of stopping the ball and shooting himself, the Spaniard chose – in a very clever way – to jump over the ball. This put Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow out of play, and seconds later became Newcastle goalkeeper 1-0 Leeds.

Rodrygo’s goal is worth it.
Eric Husklip at TV Studio 2 said he makes a clever tackle that makes the ball go to the far corner.
Rodrygo moves very well. That’s enough, Eric Thorstedt said, because Darlow doesn’t keep up.
Nice new scoring
Matt Ritchie almost scored the equalizer in the 35th minute of the match as he received a through ball coming from the left side, but his shot hit the post.
But the goal was to get Newcastle before the end of the first half. Joelinton found Allen St. Maximin, who pulled three of Leeds’ players before shooting from where he came from. Ilan Mesler had no chance of trying from his compatriot, who scored his second goal of the season.
– This is art. There are many Leeds players on the way and he also manages to get the ball into the goal. for the player. It is impossible to stop, Husseinab said.
Huge Triple Chance
After three minutes of extra time, it was astonishing that it was not 2-1 against Leeds. At first Ravenha was the only one with Darlo, but he became hesitant and couldn’t finish when he had the chance. Thus, the shot went at the sacrifice of the beauty of Lascelles.
Then Daniel James got a shot from eight metres, but that shot also landed in the block. On the back post, Junior Firpo should only put the ball into the goal, but hit the ball close to the goal by ten metres. Seconds later, the first round was over.
– For a scenic drive in St James’ Park. After the first 45 minutes, TV 2’s Jan-Henrik Borslade said he’s played fiery in a football match so far.
– Eric Thorstvedt added that the first round was quite sick.
– Huseklepp said I don’t remember seeing such a tour before.
He hasn’t won yet
The second half was quieter. Saint-Maximin had a good chance five to six minutes from the end, but the shot from 16 metres was stopped by Messler for cash.
Thus the match ended 1-1.
Both teams still have a winning advantage this season – Leeds have three points in five games after three draws and two losses, while Newcastle have one point less after two draws and three defeats.
Christopher Clayson put the entire match off the bench for Leeds. He has yet to make his debut with the traditional club’s first team.
