Leicester vs Leeds LIVE: Jesse Marsch takes charge of his first match as the Whites begin life after Marcelo Bielsa searching for three vital points to move clear of the relegation fight
Jesse Marsch takes charge of his first Leeds United match on Saturday as they make the trip to Leicester.
Just two points above the Premier League relegation places following a dramatic collapse in form that led to Marcelo Bielsa’s sacking, Leeds urgently need to return to winning ways.
A Leicester side in mid-table, who have struggled to reach the same heights as recent campaigns, could present the ideal opportunity.
Leeds boss Jesse Marsch will take charge of his game as a Premier League head coach this weekend when his new side travel to Leicester.
The American replaced Marcelo Bielsa on Monday and has had a few days to try and get his feet under the table before being thrown into his first matchday.
The side he has inherited from his predecessor is in a bad way. They haven’t won in six Premier League games and have lost five of those, conceding 14 goals in the last three alone.
Leicester, on the other hand, made a statement in midweek when they beat Burnley at Turf Moor in a rearranged game. That was their first league win in 2022.

James Maddison and Ricardo Pereira are both doubts with hamstring trouble and will continue to be assessed ahead of the game to see if either is fit enough to play.
Jamie Vardy could be in contention to start after a whirlwind return from the bench in midweek.
Leicester remain without Jonny Evans, Timothy Castagne, Wesley Fofana, James Justin and Ryan Bertrand, what would be a strong Premier League starting back five.
Leeds are still without influential senior figures Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips in a blow to the new boss. Diego Llorente has also been described by Marsch as ‘questionable’ for this one.
Patrick Bamford’s injury trouble has been a huge factor in Leeds’ struggles this season. He is now ‘close’ to a return and could have an outside chance of making it onto the bench.
Leicester have home advantage here and are in slightly better form, having also enjoyed recent success in the Europa Conference League knockout stage.
Marsch’s task to arrest Leeds’ woeful form is huge and it may take him a little longer to figure things out before the results start to come. That points to a Leicester win this time out

AC Milan vs Salzburg
Europe – Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 2 November 2022
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Both AC Milan and Salzburg are in the running for a spot in the knockouts of the Champions League, and currently they are separated by a single point in the group table. In this final match-day of the group stage, expect a fierce clash between the two.
Milan are the reigning Italian champions, and they of course have that confidence going into this crucial game. Moreover they are at home for this final group stage fixture, where they will be vociferously cheered on by their loyal fans.
It is also to be noted that they are champions of one of the top-five leagues in Europe, who are pitted against an opponent from a league that is nowhere near the Serie A in terms of quality.
Moreover, pressure is not something new for the Italian title-holders. The last season they were chased by arch-rivals Inter Milan almost through the entirety of the second half of the season, and they still managed to lift the trophy at the end.
As such, expect a confident and determined bunch of Milan players at the Stadio Giuseppe this Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Salzburg are ready for the fight. They already recorded a draw in the reverse fixture, and will be willing to give it all at this final hurdle.
They have been on a good run for quite some time – so much so that their only defeat in the past three months came against the two-time European champions Chelsea.
Furthermore, they are on a long streak of great performances on the road. In fact, the last they lost away from home was back in July, and before that in April.
Surely expect a thrilling encounter this Wednesday, as the two lock horns. Anticipate goals from either end of the pitch.
AC Milan vs Salzburg Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture ended in a 1-1 draw.
- Other than that AC Milan have a 100% winning record.
- They kept clean sheets in all but one clash so far.
- The combined scorecard for the past three meetings is 5-1, in their favor.
AC Milan vs Salzburg Predictions
Milan are on a winning streak at the moment, and they scored ten goals from the past three fixtures. They are also at home, where they have been on a great run for quite some time now.
On the other hand, Salzburg too are in great form. They even managed to deliver some great performances away from home, and scored in plenty all through this stretch.
Expect a high-scoring thriller in this final group-stage game between the two.

Juventus vs PSG
Europe – Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 2 November 2022
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium.
The Parisians could be counted as the best team in Europe at the moment, after of course Manchester City. But it is no argument that their fearsome front trio is finally clicking, and they will be the favorites to pull off one more win this Wednesday against Juventus.
The Old Lady are just in so much mess. They are not even in the conversation for the title in the Serie A, and their European exploits this season has been simply subpar.
As of now they are placed second to last in the table, level with the dead-last placed Maccabi Haifa. They managed to win just once so far this whole campaign, and no points for guessing against whom the sole win was registered – Maccabi.
And more than that, apart from that win, the former Italian champions have a 100% losing record. After defeating Haifa at home, the Italians lost the very next fixture against the same opponent.
Also, disregarding the bottom-most placed team, the Italians scored the least number of goals as well as conceded the most in the group.
Meanwhile, the Parisians just got no chill. They scored the most in the group, and conceded the least. Just the last match-day, they slotted seven goals past their opponent, with all three of their front trio getting on the scoresheet.
Moreover, the reverse fixture also ended in a win for the French champions.
Surely expect the in-form PSG to deliver another win this Wednesday against the struggling Juventus.
Juventus vs PSG Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter ended in a 2-1 win for PSG.
- The last four clashes had goals from both teams.
- Previous four meetings had three or more goals.
- Not once have the hosts kept a clean sheet at this ground.
Juventus vs PSG Prediction & Analysis
Juventus lost their latest CL game by conceding four goals, and all through this season they have been struggling with their defense. On top of that they are already out of contention for a spot in the Round of 16, and now all that remains for them is a third-place finish.
On the other hand, the Parisians are going after the top-most spot. They are in great form, and they also defeated this rival in the reverse match-up.
It is also to be noted that the last Christophe Galtier’s men lost was back in March, against arch-rivals Monaco.
By the looks of things, surely expect a win for PSG this Wednesday. And considering that both teams will be going for a win, chances are high for goals to come in plenty
