“Just great to watch nowadays!” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Hertha Berlin

Liverpool marked the club’s 125th anniversary with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Hertha Berlin in Germany on Saturday evening.

Hertha Berlin 0-3 Liverpool

Pre-Season Friendly, Olympiastadion
July 29, 2017

Goals: Solanke 15′, Wijnaldum 38′, Salah 60′

On a fine evening in Berlin, it was Dominic Solanke who broke the deadlock for Liverpool with a looping header, following a precise chip from Adam Lallana on the right.

Gini Wijnaldum then doubled Liverpool’s lead before half-time as the Reds rounded off a commanding performance in the opening 45 minutes.

Substitute Mohamed Salah scored Liverpool’s third goal after some smart linkup play with Philippe Coutinho, wrapping up the victory with a dinked effort on the run.

Liverpool were in full control and they saw out the game comfortably to win 3-0 at the Olympiastadion.

Here’s how supporters saw the Reds’ latest pre-season triumph.


Fans couldn’t wait to see Mane back in action…

“Yipee! Mane and Salah on the wings. Damn! Who would want to miss this?”

But everyone was talking about Solanke following his opening goal…

“Solanke is certainly making a very strong case for himself!”

Abyss on the forums.


And Emre Can caused a stir too…


Wijnaldum’s goal was even better than Solanke’s—and it was away from home!

“Love how Gini faked curling a shot in the top corner but then placed it in the opposite bottom corner.”

Pecl on the forums.


Andrew Robertson made an impression on his unofficial debut…


And fans were delighted to see Salah, Firmino and Coutinho link up together again…

“Salah, Firmino and Mane look so good in attack together. Can’t wait to see them in action next season.”

Lizzie Bardsley on Facebook.

“Wow, loving this Mo-Phil combo!”
