Improbable but true: Strasbourg thrashes a revamped Liverpool at Anfield in a friendly match (0-3)

You almost had to pinch yourself to believe it. After twenty-one minutes of play, Racing Club de Strasbourg led three goals to nothing, Sunday at Anfield, where the Alsatian club managed to hold this score to afford the scalp of Liverpool in a friendly. So yes, the Reds were heavily overhauled the day after their Community Shield victory over Manchester City (3-1) with only Ibrahima Konaté, Joe Gomez and James Milner as known heads. But the Alsatian club was able to seize its chance to complete its preparation with a prestigious success.

Racing thus only needed seventeen short minutes to see victory take shape, the time for Adrien Thomasson to score a double (4th, 21st) and Habib Diallo (14th) to shake the nets, although aided by the Reds’ approximations. “Anfield is one of the most legendary stadiums. I’ve always been rocked by this place. Just discovering it, taking the path to get there, going to the locker room… it’s going to be a great experience for all of us and above all a good warm-up match”, confided Thomasson before the meeting. There is no doubt that this friendly went beyond the expectations of the 28-year-old midfielder.

We will have to hang on.” Strasbourg did much better than that six days before receiving Monaco in Ligue 1.
