Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
For the first time since returning to the Premier League two years ago, Leeds win their opening match of the season and put their first points on the board. Next up for them is a trip to Southampton. Wolves will be looking to bounce back quickly as they host Fulham next time out.
Leeds come from behind to beat Wolves 2-1. The visitors took the lead in the sixth minute, with Podence volleying his side ahead. Leeds grew into the game though and Rodrigo drilled a low shot in off Sa at the near post to pull them back level. Meslier made two great saves, one on either side of half-time, to deny Dendoncker and keep his side in it. It was an own goal that won the game in the end, with Ait Nouri turning Bamford's cross past Sa ahead of Aaronson.
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: LEEDS UNITED 2-1 WOLVES.
T. Adams
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Adams just pushes Jonny out of the way to make sure he couldn't latch onto the loose ball, and he has his name taken by the referee.
90' + 1' Into the first of four added minutes here, and Wolves are still pushing for a late equaliser. They look to Ait Nouri down their left, but he sees another cross blocked by Kristensen.
89' Again, Leeds find a lot of space down their right and Greenwood has time to get his head up and pick out a cross. It's a wild ball from him in the end though and it lands in the stands near the opposite corner flag.
87' Leeds win a free-kick on the left and Gelhardt decides to go for goal himself. He's trying to catch Sa out at his near post, but there isn't enough dip on the shot and it sails over the bar.
C. Campbell
Hwang Hee-Chan
85' Wolves are making a change of their own here as well. Hwang goes off, with Campbell on for him.
C. Summerville
B. Aaronson
84' And Aaronson is also taken off, with Summerville on in his place.
J. Gelhardt
P. Bamford
84' Bamford is taking his time helping Koch to put the captain's armband on so Leeds can run the clock down, but he eventually leaves the field so Gelhardt can replace him.
82' It's end-to-end at the moment, with Leeds trying to wrap up the points and Wolves trying to rescue one. Neto gets away down the left again and whips another good cross into the box towards Hwang, but Llorente just beats him to it.
80' GREAT SAVE! Harrison brushes Collins aside and curls a good cross into the middle of the box. It's a good leap from Bamford, who flicks the header on, and Sa gets a strong hand behind the shot to keep his side in this game.
78' Klich gets away down the right again and he has three to aim for in the middle. He ends up winning a corner, and Harrison is looking for Llorente with his cross, but Kilman cuts it out.
76' Ait Nouri is still causing Leeds problems here as he picks out Neto's run down the left. He cuts inside and goes for goal despite having options in the box, but it hits Koch.
R. Aït Nouri
Own Goal
74' OWN GOAL! It's great play from Leeds, and Klich slides a lovely throughball into Bamford, who times his run perfectly. He plays a dangerous, low ball across the six-yard box for Aaronson. It looked like he had a debut goal, but it was actually Ait Nouri that turned it past his own goalkeeper. 2-1 Leeds!
S. Greenwood
Marc Roca
73' Second change for Leeds now, and it's Roca that's making way for Greenwood.
71' Leeds are just starting to find their way back into this game and Klich whips a dangerous cross into the box, but nobody is there for the hosts. Harrison recycles it on the far side and wins a corner, but nothing comes of it.
69' The space opens up for Ait Nouri and he rides the challenge from Adams before driving into the box. He's one-on-one with Meslier, but Kristensen recovers brilliantly to slide in and dispossess him before he can get the shot away.
67' Klich gets straight into the action as he pushes his way through the crowded midfield and touches it through to Bamford. It bounces off his heel and back to Aaronson, but he can't find the space for a shot.
M. Klich
Rodrigo
65' Leeds are making the first change of the game, and it's the goal scorer, Rodrigo, that's taken off and replaced by Klich.
63' Ait Nouri skips his way into the box from the left with some clever footwork and pulls it back from the byline. None of his team-mates gambled on it though, and Leeds hook it away.
61' The corner from Gibbs-White isn't as good this time, and Harrison sets Rodrigo on the counter. Collins gets across to clip his heels and stop the attack, and he's lucky not to get a booking.
59' Wolves aren't letting up the pressure here, and Leeds just can't get a touch on the ball. They work it through Neto down the left, but his cross is cleared by Llorente this time.
57' GREAT SAVE! The resulting corner is swung into the box and Dendoncker rises highest in the middle of the box to meet it. He thumps a header towards goal, but Meslier tips it onto the roof of the net.
56' It's a lovely bit of skill from Neto, who turns away from Kristensen and then Roca as he cuts inside from the left. He goes for goal himself, drilling a low shot at the near post, but Llorente makes a good block.
54' Leeds just can't keep hold of the ball when they win possession back at the moment. Struijk has the right idea when he spots Aaronson's run down the opposite flank, but his switch is cut out by Ait Nouri.
52' Aaronson overhits the cross to Bamford, but Rodrigo is on the far side to keep it alive. He curls a better ball into the middle and Bamford goes for the spectacular with an overhead kick, but ends up catching Kilman in the face.
50' Leeds are still attempting a high press, but Wolves seem to have worked them out at the moment. They're moving it quicker upfield, with Ait Nouri drilling it through for Neto, but the pass it too heavy for him.
48' Wolves have made a bright start to the second half and Podence curls a great cross into the box from the right. He's looking for Hwang, who goes down under pressure from Kristensen, but the referee says no penalty.
46' Wolves get us back underway for the second half!
Marsch will be the happier of the two managers at half-time, as Leeds have caused some real problems with their high press and on the counter, which he will want to continue in the second half. Lage was a frustrated figure on the touchline, as his side lost their control after taking the early lead, and he'll be looking for a big improvement.
It's all square at the break, with Leeds and Wolves drawing 1-1. The visitors made a great start to the game, with Podence volleying his side into the lead just six minutes into the half. Leeds responded well to going behind though and Rodrigo pulled them back level after catching Sa out with a low drive into the near post. Dendoncker almost restored Wolves' lead on the stroke of half-time, but Meslier made a great save to deny him.
45' + 3' HALF-TIME: LEEDS UNITED 1-1 WOLVES.
45' + 2' GREAT SAVE! There's time for one last attack in the first half and Neto curls a good cross into the middle. Hwang helps it back to Dendoncker at the near post and Meslier spreads himself to block his first-time shot with his foot.
45' + 1' GREAT CHANCE! Harrison has so much space down the left and he whips a brilliant ball across the face of goal. Rodrigo and Bamford both throw themselves forward, but neither can get a touch to turn it over the line.
44' Leeds' high press is causing all sorts of problems and Sa almost scores an own goal because of it. Bamford is chasing him down and the keeper just manages to keep it on the right side of his line before he's dispossessed, but Harrison then loses out to Collins.
42' Neto takes his time over a free-kick on the left before eventually swinging his cross in. It's a poor delivery though and an easy clearance for Llorente.
40' It's a good move from Wolves, who pass their way upfield, working it from left to right. Gibbs-White picks out Jonny's run down the wing, but his first-time cross hits Struijk.
38' Llorente spots Bamford peeling off the back of Collins, and goes long over the top to get him in behind. He brings it down with a good first touch, but the defender does just enough to help it back to Sa.
36' Podence skips away from Struijk and opens up space to put a deep cross into the far post. He picks out Neto, who takes the shot on the volley, but it's straight at Meslier.
34' Wolves are just trying to slow the pace of the game now as they keep possession and ease the pressure on their backline. At the moment, they're in no hurry to push upfield.
32' Hwang is down with what looks like a muscle problem here and this could be bad news for Wolves, who are short of attacking options. He's receiving treatment now, and he'll be able to carry on.
30' Leeds aren't letting up the pressure any time soon and Kristensen slides it into Bamford. He ends up overhitting it onto Aaronson down the right, and he can't keep it in.
28' Koch cuts out Wolves' attack and Aaronson surges through the middle on the counter. He squeezes it out to Harrison on the left, but a loose touch takes it away from him and out of play.
26' Wolves just can't get out of their own box at the moment as Leeds push for a quick second goal. Rodrigo's long-range effort is well-blocked by Collins, but it comes back to Roca. He can't get any power on his shot though and it rolls straight to Sa.
J. Harrison
Assist
24' Harrison didn't give up after losing the ball to Ait Nouri, and his persistence paid off as he was able to set up Rodrigo.
Rodrigo
Goal
24' RODRIGO EQUALISES! Ait Nouri is caught on the ball inside his own box, and he initially does well to nick it back off Harrison, but then Neves dawdles on the clearance. It's touched to Rodrigo, who fizzes a low shot into the near post, catching out Sa. 1-1!
23' The final pass into the box is just lacking for Leeds at the minute, with both Rodrigo and Harrison both putting good throughballs into the box without being able to pick out a team-mate.
21' SAVE! Neves goes long again, and Hwang curves his run to stay onside. He lifts his first touch over Llorente, leaving the defender behind, but then doesn't make the contact he wants with the shot and it's straight at Meslier.
J. Harrison
Yellow Card
20' The first booking of the game goes to Harrison after he takes one for the team by clipping Neto's heels to stop him from breaking on a quick counter-attack.
18' Wolves switch it from right to left and Hwang tries to squeeze a throughball down the left to Neto. He has acres of space to run into, but Kristensen sticks out a leg to make a good interception.
16' Aaronson swings the resulting free-kick in from the left for Leeds and Sa rushes off his line to try and meet it. He completely misses the ball and clatters into Kristensen instead. The defender is down and the home fans are asking for a penalty, but it's not given.
14' There are a few niggling fouls coming in from both teams here. Roca accidentally caught Hwang in the face and Leeds win it back straight from the free-kick, before Roca is tripped by Gibbs-White.
12' CLOSE! Leeds are just starting to up the pressure now and Kristensen lays it off to Aaronson, who turns Kilman before taking the shot from the edge of the box. Neves gets enough on it to deflect it just wide.
10' Leeds are patiently working it upfield, trying to find a quick response to Wolves' early goal. Aaronson has three defenders in front of him, but he does manage to win a corner, which comes to nothing.
8' Neves is down for Wolves again, and he's asking for a free-kick after slight contact from Roca. There wasn't much in it though and the referee tells him to get back to his feet.
Hwang Hee-Chan
Assist
6' Hwang just peeled away from his defender at the far post to be able to nod the ball back into the danger zone for Wolves.
Daniel Podence
Goal
6' PODENCE SCORES! It's a brilliant long ball over the top from Neves to get Wolves upfield, and he picks out Neto on the left, who lifts a lovely cross into the far post. Hwang nods it back across, and Podence hits in on the volley even as he's off-balance. Meslier is scrambling, and he can't keep it out of the top corner. 1-0 Wolves!
4' Bamford latches onto Neto's loose touch and quickly switches it out to Harrison on the left. He isn't given any space by Jonny though, and he can't pick out a cross into the box.
2' It's Podence with the early chance for Wolves as a loose header from Adams falls to him through the middle. The space opens up ahead of him and he takes it on the half-volley, but it bounces of the near post.
1' Bamford gets the game underway for Leeds!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away!
Leeds have lost their opening Premier League match in each of their two seasons since returning to the top-flight, shipping nine goals in defeats to Liverpool (3-4 in 2020-21) and Manchester United (1-5 in 2021-22). Prior to this, they hadn't lost their opening top-flight match in any of their previous 14 seasons at this level.
Lage makes just one change to his team from the friendly win over Sporting CP last Saturday, as he brings in Hwang from the start. Collins makes his first competitive start for Wolves, while Joao Moutinho and Raul Jimenez miss out through injury.
Marsch names an unchanged side to the one that started their final pre-season game against Cagliari, which means Premier League debuts for Kristensen, Aaronson, Roca and Adams. Bamford wears the captain's armband as he leads the line, and another new signing in Gyabi is named among the substitutes.
WOLVES SUBS: Matija Sarkic, Yerson Mosquera, Hugo Bueno, Joseph Hodge, Luke Cundle, Connor Ronan, Chem Campbell, Willy Boly, Conor Coady.
WOLVES STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Jose Sa; Jonny Castro, Nathan Collins, Maximillian Kilman, Rayan Air Nouri; Leander Dendoncker, Ruben Neves; Daniel Podence, Morgan Gibbs-White, Pedro Neto; Hwang Hee-Chan.
LEEDS UNITED SUBS: Kristoffer Klaesson, Sam Greenwood, Cody Drameh, Crysencio Summerville, Mateusz Klich, Joe Gelhardt, Darko Gyabi, Leo Fuhr Hjelde, Archie Gray.
LEEDS UNITED STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Illan Meslier; Rasmus Kristensen, Diego Llorente, Robin Koch, Pascal Struijk; Marc Roca, Tyler Adams; Brenden Aaronson, Rodrigo Moreno, Jack Harrison; Patrick Bamford.
Leeds secured their Premier League safety last season in dramatic fashion, with a stoppage-time win on the final day helping them to avoid relegation. They start their first full campaign under Jesse Marsch today and come into this game having lost just one of their five pre-season friendlies (W3 D1). Wolves fizzled out towards the end of last season but enjoyed good spells during Bruno Lage's first year in charge. They won four of their eight pre-season matches (D2 L2), but are winless in their last three coming into today.
