Liverpool wrapped up their pre-season campaign with a hard-fought win against Bundesliga side Darmstadt, but not without a few surprises along the way. The Reds got off to a flying start, racing to a 2-0 lead within the first 10 minutes of the match. Mohamed Salah opened the scoring by capitalizing on Dominik Szoboszlai’s corner, before turning provider to set up Diogo Jota with a well-executed counter-pressing move.

However, Liverpool’s high defensive line was exposed as Darmstadt quickly responded with a goal. A long ball over the top found Mathias Honsak, who kept his composure and slotted the ball past goalkeeper Alisson, cutting Liverpool’s lead in half.


Just before the hour mark, Luis Diaz restored Liverpool’s two-goal advantage with a superb finish. Flicking in Szoboszlai’s corner with precision, Diaz showcased Liverpool’s attacking prowess and reinforced their options in the final third.

The match, held at Preston North End’s Deepdale Stadium due to ongoing work at Anfield, drew thousands of Liverpool supporters who traveled to watch the game. Darmstadt also brought a significant number of fans, who made their presence felt as their team returned to the Bundesliga after a four-year absence.


While the game initially appeared to be heading towards a one-sided result, with Liverpool dominating and Darmstadt struggling to keep up, the high line of Liverpool’s defense was exposed once again as Honsak capitalized on a long ball to score.



Liverpool managed to regain control of the game and slow down the tempo, thanks in part to the impressive performance of Alexis Mac Allister in a defensive midfield role. The Reds continue to search for a solution in that position, with their recent bid for Southampton’s Romeo Lavia being rejected. Nonetheless, Liverpool’s attacking talent was on display in the second half, particularly with Diaz’s elegant flicked goal from a corner.

The match ended with a 3-1 victory for Liverpool, who now shift their focus to their Premier League opener against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The encounter promises to be a thrilling contest as both teams aim to make a strong start to their league campaigns. Liverpool will be eager to secure a positive result as they look to regain their place in the Champions League after missing out on European competition last season.



Manager Jurgen Klopp will be analyzing the team’s performance and making final preparations for the Premier League opener. With their attacking prowess and the return of key players from injury, Liverpool possesses the quality and depth necessary to compete at the highest level.


As the new season beckons, Liverpool fans will be filled with anticipation and optimism. The team’s pre-season preparations have provided valuable insights and opportunities for improvement, and now it’s time for the real test to begin. Liverpool supporters will be eagerly awaiting the clash against Chelsea, hoping for a strong start that sets the tone for a successful season ahead.
