(VIDEO) Watch: Liverpool vs Lyon Highlights & All Goals | Club Friendly International as Reds suffer defeat on returnl
Lyon defeated Liverpool 3-1 in the first of their two mid-season friendlies to mark Liverpool’s return to action.
Less than 60 seconds into the game, Fabio Carvalho gave the Reds the lead, and shortly after that, Mohamed Salah had a penalty saved, giving the Reds a wonderful opportunity to continue building on their strong start.
However, Lyon made the most of that let-off as they levelled the game before the break through Alexandre Lacazette.
And the French side kicked on again in the second half, getting in front through a goal from substitute Bradley Barcola before Lacazette grabbed a second to seal the result.
Liverpool were then denied the consolation goal in the post-match penalty shootouts that are a feature of the Dubai Super Cup, a saved Calvin Ramsay effort proving the difference.
But Jurgen Klopp’s side will have a chance to put things right when they face Milan in their second and final friendly in five days time.
