Karlsruhe vs Liverpool 2 - 4 (2023 Pre-season Goals & Highlights)
Liverpool needed a second half comeback – including a stoppage time brace from Diogo Jota – to avoid embarrassment in their first pre-season fixture of the summer, eventually prevailing 4-2.
Jurgen Klopp named a mostly strong Reds XI from the start, with Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Luis Diaz featuring from the opening kick-off. There was also an unofficial debut for £60m signing Dominik Szoboszlai straight off the bat.
There was, however, no Jordan Henderson in the matchday selection as his proposed move to Saudi Pro League club Al Ettifaq edges closer to completion after a £15m transfer was agreed.
