Liverpool triumphed 2-0 today in Oslo over Norwegian outfit FC Lyn, with Rafa Benitez’s men enjoying their second win of pre-season in comfortable fashion.
Andrey Voronin headed the Reds into the lead just before the interval, with David Ngog doubling their advantage on the hour mark. The Reds, resplendent in their new all-white European away kit, strolled through the Scandinavian sunshine with their only concern being an injury to Albert Riera, the extent of which is not yet clear.
However, it was the hosts who threatened early on, with Liverpool keeper Diego Cavalieri being called into action early on to tip an effort from striker Davy Angan round the post.
The keeper was forced to make a couple more saves before the Reds began to assert themselves, with efforts from Jay Spearing and Lucas Leiva going close. However, the hosts remained competitive and both teams had opportunities to take the lead before Voronin’s effort opened the scoring.
