Video: Taki Minamino scores to make it 1-0 with a deflection after missing a sitter!

Taki Minamino opens the scoring after missing a golden opportunity moments earlier.

Liverpool fans were treated to a second pre-season friendly in two days at Anfield against a La Liga side after Athletic Bilbao held the Reds to a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

After missing a sitter from a sumptuous pass from Ibrahima Konate, Takumi Minamino was fortunate to score from a deflected shot a minute later.

The Japanese forward was played in by another superb pass. This time it was a delightfully scooped pass from Fabinho.

While his finish was saved the first time by the Osasuna ‘keeper, you have to commend Minamino for his incredible movement.
