Liverpool have been linked with Benfica star Darwin Nunez in recent days.Sky Sports reporter Melissa Reddy claimed on Tuesday that the Reds have been eyeing Nunez for a “long time”.The Liverpool contingent was able to see the Uruguayan up close in action on Tuesday night.Photo by Chris Brunskill/Fantasista/Getty ImagesNunez led the line for Benfica against Jurgen Klopp’s charges in their Champions League quarter-final first leg.Why Isn’t The MLS Rivalling Europe’s Biggest Leagues Yet?Although Liverpool ran out 3-1 winners in Lisbon, the 22-year-old gave the Reds a hard time.Ibrahima Konate netted his first goal for Liverpool on 17 minutes.The defender opened the scoring with a header from Andrew Robertson’s corner kick.Sadio Mane then doubled the Reds’ lead in the 34th minute, applying the finishing touch to a superb counter-attack.Liverpool then struggled early in the second half as Benfica halved the deficit.Konate failed to clear a low ball into the box and Nunez was on hand to slam home a great poacher’s finish.Liverpool eventually regained a foothold in the match and restored their two-goal advantage three minutes from time.Luis Diaz strode past Benfica goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos before slotting into the far corner of the net.Although Nunez is a top player who’d no doubt bolster the Liverpool ranks, there was a moment which angered the Reds contingent.The Benfica ace went down in the box under minimal pressure from Virgil van Dijk, looking for a penalty.The Liverpool star wasn’t happy with Nunez’s actions, throwing his arms in the air in dismay.And McManaman, commentating on BT Sport, was equally bemused.“He doesn’t need to do it,” said the Anfield cult hero.“Yes, there’s an arm across his chest, but he should stay on his feet and carry on. “He just crumbles to the floor!” Have something to tell us about this article?
