Leeds United 1-1 Crystal Palace highlights: Whites held to draw in final Australia friendly

FT: Leeds United 1-1 Crystal Palace

Game over. Spoils shared. Tour ends with a win, a loss and a draw.

90’ Right at the death, Mitchell heads down into the turf at the back post but it bounces over the bar. Let-off.

Trickling towards a conclusion

87’ Into the last couple of minutes. Intensity gone out of this one, headed for a draw it seems.

What do the last few have in store?

81’ Gelhardt fizzes one at goal from the corner of the box. Forces Guaita into a good save.

Marsch has also been booked.

74’ Llorente anticipates Ebiowei’s pass into the box and intercepts well. Could have been a second for Palace if not for that.

GOAL! Palace equalise 1-1

67’ Leeds don’t defend well after their corner breaks down. Ayew surges forward and slides across to Mateta in the middle. Simple stuff.

66’ WIDE! Greenwood and Gelhardt combine brilliantly but Guaita's hand on Joffy's chip sees the ball just wide. Clever play from start to finish.
