The game is also the official opening of the KSC Stadium. Liverpool FC is currently preparing for the new Premier League season in Donaueschingen. Next Monday (July 24th), the 2019 Champions League winner will play another friendly against second division side SpVgg Greuther Fürth.

Darwin Núñez (3rd) gives the visitors from England an early lead. KSC returnee Lars Stindl (39th) equalizes in the closing stages of the first half with a long-range shot that is well worth seeing. “It’s a very nice feeling to be at home and with the boys in the club – that’s fun!” says Stindl in an interview with HEIDELBERG24 at the start of the preparations. The 34-year-old returned to his heart club from Borussia Mönchengladbach in the summer.
