RB Leipzig 0-5 Liverpool: Darwin Nunez bags four goal for the Reds (Highlights)

Published

on

Liverpool had a Darwin Nunez second-half masterclass to thank for inspiring them to a comfortable victory against RB Leipzig in their latest pre-season friendly clash on Thursday evening. Jurgen Klopp named a surprisingly strong team to face the Bundesliga heavyweights and the German manager’s big-hitters managed to get the job done with an encouraging display over the course of the 90 minutes.

Liverpool went in search of a fast start and managed to get one through Mohamed Salah, who finished calmly after he was played in by Roberto Firmino with a deft flick into space. The Merseyside giants dominated the ball for large parts of the contest but were tested on plenty of occasions by Leipzig, with the German side finding joy on the counter-attack as the interval approached.

Nunez went on to double Liverpool’s advantage from the penalty spot after half-time to register his first goal since joining Liverpool from Benfica earlier this summer. He scored again just moments later with a perfectly-struck effort to finish a swift attacking move before completing an impressive hat-trick by turning the ball home from close range under pressure.

The Uruguayan forward clinched a fourth with the last kick of the game to rubber-stamp a solid away win for the visitors against a high-level European opponent, but Klopp and his coaching team will undoubtedly be looking to fine-tune a handful of aspects on the training ground in advance of the new Premier League season.

Report: Converse between Man Utd and Adrien Rabiot slow down

Adrien Rabiot’s move to Man United is at risk, according to several sources.

Fabrizio Romano claims that United still find Rabiot’s salary demands too high, so an agreement on personal terms can’t be reached.

Besides, Rabiot remains unconvinced about Manchester United as his destination this season as they won’t play in the Champions League.
