With Manchester United to come on the opening day of the season, Bielsa knows that his Leeds squad can ill-afford to be off the pace when they take on last season’s runners-up at Old Trafford.
However, while the Argentine will not pay too much attention to results at this stage of the summer, defeats against Fleetwood Town and Real Betis are far from ideal.
Leeds largely fielded a second-string side against Fleetwood, but there were members of the squad at Highbury that would have been hoping to impress.
Still missing Kalvin Phillips, positives could be taken from the 3-2 reverse against Betis in a game which saw Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich get on the scoresheet.
Nevertheless, Leeds sides of varying quality have now conceded eight times in four games, putting the onus on delivering an improved defensive performance in the Netherlands.
Ajax are further through their pre-season campaign, with Erik ten Hag‘s squad having already played six times since the beginning of July.

Draws have recently been registered against each of Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig, results which arguably make the Eredivisie title winners the favourites to prevail in this contest.
Like his opposite number, performance over result will matter more to Ten Hag, but taking the scalp of a Premier League club would not go unnoticed ahead of the new season.
