Leeds United Competitive Penalty Shoot-outs

Leeds have been involved in 15 competitive penalty shoot-outs and have won 8 of them in total. The club's first competitive penalty shoot-out took place against Hibernian in the UEFA Cup in November 1973. Peter Lorimer took the club's first penalty in a shoot-out and Billy Bremner scored the first winning penalty for the Whites. A year later Leeds were beaten by Liverpool 6-5 at Wembley in the FA Charity Shield following a 1-1 draw, when goalkeeper David Harvey became the first Leeds player to miss a penalty in a shootout for the club.  


Leeds' latest penalty shoot-out was a 6-5 win following a goalless draw with Fulham at Craven Cottage in the League Cup in September 2021. The shortest penalty shoot-out involving Leeds came against CS Maritimo in the UEFA Cup at the Estadio dos Barreiros where just 7 spot kicks were taken as Leeds won 4-1 win on penalties.


The longest penalty shoot-out involving Leeds was against Hull City in the League Cup in September 2020 when we were beaten 8-9 with a total of 20 spot kicks taken. 


In total, Leeds have taken 83 penalties in shoot-outs and scored 65 of them (78.3%). The club have scored all their penalties in a single shoot-out on four separate occasions. Leeds have won just 2 of the 5 penalty shoot-outs at Elland Road.


Nigel Martyn and Kiko Casilla are the only Leeds goalkeepers to have been involved in two or more shoot-outs. Mervyn Day became the first Leeds goalkeeper to save a penalty in a shootout when he managed it twice against Stoke City in December 1989.


Marco Silvestri holds the club record for most saves in a single penalty shoot-out when he made three saves against Norwich City in October 2016. To date, 10 penalty saves have been made by Leeds United goalkeepers in shootouts. Mervyn Day and Kiko Casilla remain the only Leeds goalkeepers to have scored in a penalty shoot-out for the club.
