Confirmed: Leeds United line-up to play Hoffenheim

Here is how Leeds United will line up for this afternoon’s match against Hoffenheim:

Leeds United starting XI: Silvestri, Berardi, Bellusci, Bamba, Taylor, Adeyemi, Cook, Mowatt, Byram, Doukara, Wood

Leeds United subs: Turnbull, Coyle, Wootton, Cooper, Phillips, Sloth, Walters, Erwin, Antenucci, Morison, Horton

Leeds United continue their pre-season tour with a clash against Bundesliga club Hoffenheim this afternoon.

Uwe Rosler’s side lost 2-1 to another German club, Eintracht Frankfurt, last week and the Whites boss will no doubt be hoping to see a better result this time out.

Steve Morison’s place in the Leeds’ starting line-up may be in question following the arrival of Lee Erwin and Chris Wood, but the target-man has been in good goal-scoring form recently and nothing is set in stone with another 180 minutes of football to be played before the Championship campaign kicks off next month.

Hoffenheim lost their star player Roberto Firmino this summer but they are still a threat and Leeds will have to be at their best to get a result here.

Rosler has used his big squad well to date, giving plenty of players a chance to impress as he seeks to identify his best starting XI.
