Discrepancy between Leviticus 23:6 and Matthew 26:17?

Leviticus 23:6 says : “And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread...”

However, Matthew 26:17 says: “Now on the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?”

Any thoughts on the seeming discrepancy?

Are you referring to the dates of when the passover was to be held and then the feast of unleavened bread?

What discrepancy?

The "first day of the feast of unleavened bread" in Matthew 26:17 is "the fifteenth day of the . . . month" from Leviticus 23:6.
