Darwin Nunez’s four second half goals propelled Liverpool to a dominant 5-0 preseason win away at Bundesliga giants RB Leipzig.
Mo Salah’s early strike rewarded a positive start for Jurgen Klopp’s side at the Red Bull Arena as they gear up for the 2022/23 Premier League campaign.
Despite the hosts showing some signs of life either side of the restart, substitute Nunez ran riot in the second 45, to silence his recent doubters.
A powerful penalty was followed up with two composed finishes inside the box before the former Benfica hitman ruthlessly buried Fabio Carvalho’s pass.

RB Leipzig 0 – 3 Liverpool – Darwin Nuñez 51′
The match was billed as possibly Liverpool’s toughest pre-season test yet, having played Manchester United and Crystal Palace so far, but they resoundingly laid bare how ridiculous those suggestions were by swatting aside a poor looking RB Leipzig side.
Throughout Liverpool, who have played one more game this summer than their Bundesliga opponents, looked sharper and fitter, with their midfield faster to every second ball and their backline quite to snaffle any ember of a Leipzig move forward.
Jurgen Klopp side took on a good victory with 5 goals to nothing
