Leeds to host Crewe Alexandra at Elland Road in Carabao Cup second round

Leeds United will host Crewe at Elland Road in the Carabao Cup second round.

The fixtures will be played on the week commencing August 23.

It’s set to be the 10t competitive meeting between the two sides and the first since 2009.

Leeds have won four of their last five clashes against the Alex and the fixture will be their first cup meeting since 1994.

The Whites were knocked out at this stage of the competition last season against Hull City.

Marcelo Bielsa fielded a young Leeds side for that fixture and it remains to be seen how serious he’ll take the competition this time round.

Leeds have been knocked out of the competition at this stage in the last three seasons. You’d need to go back to 2016-17 for a notable Carabao Cup run – they were knocked out in the Quarter Finals against Liverpool at Anfield.
