Leeds to face top German side in friendly

Borussia Monchengladbach are a side with tons of European pedigree and have produced many great young players of late for various German- and European- sides. And they have announced their preseason schedule today, via their official website.

The first match Dieter Hecking’s men will have this preseason will be against Leeds United. Leeds will face the German side on July 20th in what should be a very interesting encounter. Leeds’ league season starts nearly two weeks before the German side’s.

This should be a tremendous test for Thomas Christensen’s men, as Monchengladbach represent a very strong test. This is the case no matter which side you face. Even the young players at the Bundesliga side are quite strong.

This shows the ambition of Leeds. There aren’t many sides that are willing to play teams above them in preseason, so this should be seen as quite an encouraging sign.
