Red Bull Salzburg 1-0 Liverpool: Reds end Austria training camp with defeat

Liverpool completed their preparation for Saturday’s Community Shield with a frustrating 1-0 defeat at the hands of Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday night.

Jurgen Klopp opted to start the match in Austria with a second-string side and was made to pay when Benjamin Sesko cut through the defence to score a well-taken goal midway through the first half after Fernando had already missed a sitter. The 19-year-old Slovenian striker has been linked with Manchester United recently and his clinical finish showed why.

Darwin Nunez had scored four times in the Reds’ 5-0 win over RB Leipzig last week, but would not add to his pre-season goal tally. Liverpool’s summer signing struck the bar and spurned several openings before being substituted at half-time.

Klopp brought on the big guns after 60 minutes to end the match with his strongest XI, but the substitutions could not change the result. Luis Diaz had a goal correctly ruled out for offside, while Trent Alexander-Arnold saw a stinging long-range effort palmed away by Nico Mantl.

Klopp was incensed in injury-time when his side were denied a penalty following a heavy challenge on Diaz in the box and the incident summed up the night for Liverpool. With the Austria leg of their pre-season completed, they will now fly back to England to take on Manchester City in the Community Shield at Leicester’s King Power Stadium on Saturday.
