On this day in 1977 Liverpool thrashed Hamburger SV 6-0, securing the European Super Cup.

Having claimed a hard fought 1-1 draw in the first leg, Paisley’s men came into the return leg on Merseyside hoping to claim a trophy early on in the season. The clash against the Germans was highly anticipated with former fan-favourite Kevin Keegan returning to Anfield for the first time since leaving the Reds the season before.

As it turned out the second game against Hamburg would not be such a close affair with Phil Thompson and Terry McDermott giving the home side a 2-0 lead at the break. The second half would see McDermott complete an emphatic hat-trick as well as super-sub, David Fairclough getting in on the scoring. New King of the Kop, Kenny Dalglish would grab Liverpool’s 6th on the night to cap off the rout, seeing Liverpool win their first bit of silverware of the 1977/78 season in style.
