Salford News and Form
Salford stepped out at home in their first-ever League Two match on the weekend and collected a 2-0 win over Stevenage. That was some way to celebrate. They came through the National League playoffs the last term to get their spot in the top tiers, which means that they will be taking on the League Cup challenge for the first time.
The Ammies are naturally underdogs here, even at Moor Lane as they are taking on a much higher-ranked team. Backed by a clutch of former Manchester United players and billionaire Peter Lim, Salford have earned four promotions in five years. How will their venture into the EFL Cup go?

Leeds News and Form
The Whites came racing out of the blocks on the weekend, winning on the road at Bristol City. It was a very strong showing in a 3-1 win that they took in their Championship opener. There’s every reason to believe that Marcelo Bielsa isn’t going to send out a full-strength starting eleven for this one, not so early in the season and not against a League Two side. But regardless of what they will be expected to pick up the win.
Leeds have won six of their last nine League Cup games. However, they have won just three of their last six out on the road, two of those three successes coming via a penalty shootout. Last season Leeds collected a first-round win over Bolton on home soil. They have such a good young squad with plenty of firepowers through the likes of Kemar Roofe, Patrick Bamford and Helder Costa that they should be fine.

Who will win – Salford v Leeds Predictions
We would expect even an under strength Leeds to come through this challenge. It’s a big night for Salford in their first ever League Cup game, however, it may be a rude awakening for them against very good opposition.
