Scissored Volley! Roberto Firmino (Hoffenheim) vs Braunschweig | inside World Soccer

Former Liverpool target Roberto Firmino scored a brilliant volley as TSG 1899 Hoffenheim comfortably beat Eintracht Braunschweig 3-1 at the Rhein-Neckar Arena.

The hosts found their rhythm quickly on Saturday and took the lead after 15 minutes when Sebastian Rudy nodded home from Andreas Beck's cross.

Firmino then doubled the advantage after the hour mark with his 16th goal of the season.

Tobias Strobl crossed from the left and Firmino, who had been linked with a move to Liverpool before signing a new deal at Hoffenheim last March, volleyed in a right-footed effort from 18 yards in true capoeira style.

Kevin Volland added a third for Hoffenheim in the 70th minute before Braunschweig substitute Jan Hochscheidt grabbed a consolation with a minute left.
