Darwin Nunez scores 4 goals in pre-season Liverpool rout
The big-money summer arrival took off in spectacular style in Liverpool colors on Thursday, finding the net four times.
Jurgen Klopp’s troops were back in action a short time ago.
After putting the club’s pre-season preparations back on track thanks to a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace last time out, the Reds traveled to Germany for a meeting with the Bundesliga heavyweights on this occasion. RB Leipzig.
And, when it was all said and done at Red Bull Arena, the evening’s visitors emerged victorious once again.
Mohamed Salah was first on target, hanging on to Roberto Firmino’s layoff to insert a typically accurate finish into the bottom corner:

From there, however, one man and one man only stole the show.
The player in question? The aforementioned Nunez.
Firstly, shortly after the break, Liverpool’s prolific summer addition, singled out for heavy criticism due to his pre-season efforts so far, opened his account for the Reds from the point of penalty.
Then, five minutes later, Nunez was back on target once more, directing a cool right-footed strike over the goalkeeper and home.
The former Benfica man then showed his predatory instincts as he drove home from close range thanks to a perfectly balanced drop from Harvey Elliott:

And yet, there was still time for Nunez to add further to his run, completing a late breakaway from Klopp’s visitors to put the finishing touches on a stellar individual display:
