llegar: Pronounced “yeh-gar” or “jeh-gar”?

Sorry, I know this has been asked before, as I’ve seen some of the answers on the pronunciation of “y-” and “ll-” on this subreddit. But the resources I’m learning from (mainly Duolingo and SpanishDict) are inconsistent on this. Sometimes they use the “j” sound in English [[DL](https://www.duolingo.com/dictionary/Spanish/llegar/7764d6f2567968845c71bb5428392cfa) ][[SD](https://www.spanishdict.com/translate/llegar) ]sometimes the sound “y” in English [[DL](https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/8670793) ][[SD](https://www.spanishdict.com/translate/yo%20llega?t=1) ].

[Google Translate](https://translate.google.com/?sl=es&tl=en&text=yo%20llego%20llamar&op=translate) uses the “y” sound in English, so I’m not sure what to use. So what is the most common (sounding least awkward) way to pronounce this?
