Liverpool lose to Atletico Madrid on penalties in Audi Cup final

Liverpool lose to Atletico Madrid on penalties in Audi Cup final”

Liverpool drew 1-1 with Atletico Madrid before falling to 5-4 penalty shoot-out defeat in the Audi Cup pre-season tournament.

Sime Vrsaljko's volleyed cross from the right was met by Angel Correa and, though his effort was brilliantly turned onto the crossbar by Danny Ward, Bare was poised to nod in the rebound.

Keidi Bare gave Atletico the lead in the first period, but substitute Roberto Firmino levelled things up from the spot late on to force the shootout.

Liverpool, who won the Asia Cup last month, will now prepare to face Athletic Bilbao in Dublin in their final friendly match before their league campaign begins at Watford on 12 August.

The Reds are on offer at 10/1 with Sky Bet to win the Premier League title and Firmino is a 40/1 chance in the top goalscorer odds.

With a lead to hold on to, Diego Simeone's well-drilled outfit were hard to break down, despite Liverpool introducing Firmino, Divock Origi and the pacey Ryan Kent in the second half.

Origi did go close with an effort from the edge of the box, but it flew just half a yard wide of the near post, before the Belgian helped bring Liverpool back into the game with a questionable fall.

Firmino stepped up and sent Moya the wrong way to level the match at 1-1, and that's the way it stayed after 90 minutes.

Liverpool (4-3-3) Ward; Flanagan (Matip 45), Klavan, Gomez (Alexendar-Arnold 74), Milner (Robertson 45); Can (Henderson 45), Wijnaldum (Ejaria 64), Lallana (Grujic 45); Mane (Firmino 45), Solanke (Origi 64), Woodburn (Kent 45).
