Marcelo Bielsa has named his line-up for his second pre-season friendly as Leeds United prepare to play Portuguese top-flight side Pacos Ferreira.

There are still a large number of Leeds players on international duty, with Kalvin Phillips hoping to make his England debut later on today as England face Iceland.

Rodrigo, Robin Koch, Liam Cooper, Gjanni Alioski, Stuart Dallas, Mateusz Klich, Illan Meslier and Alfie McCalmont are all away.

Tyler Roberts was withdrawn from the Wales squad but is named in the starting XI today after making a cameo appearance last week in the defeat against Stoke.

The Leeds line-up was announced on the official Leeds Twitter page ahead of the 1pm kick-off.

The game is being played behind closed doors but Leeds fans can watch the game live on LUTV.

Fans will be hoping to see a better performance and result than they got in the friendly against Stoke.

Kiko Casilla came in for the majority of criticism in that game after flapping at a cross and gifting Stoke a goal.

Leeds lost the game 3-0 but the aim in these games is fitness, not going all out to get a result.

With the inconvenience of the international games, Bielsa’s preparation is being disrupted and the team today won’t be the one that lines up against Liverpool at Anfield next week.

However, it does give fans a chance to watch the side for the first time since they lifted the Championship title.
