Live Reporting

By Caroline Chapman

All times stated are UK

Five goals and a penalty shoot-out.

Who said pre-season friendlies are pointless?!

That's all from us tonight. Until next time...


Manchester United 2-1 Sampdoria

Big noise at the Aviva as the final whistle goes.

Juan Mata's winner makes sure Man United complete their pre-season campaign with five wins, a draw and a defeat from seven matches.

Manchester United 2-1 Sampdoria

Over in Dublin, there's a minute left to play.

Manchester United are on their way to ending their pre-season with a win...

Oh, hang on. Make that three minutes. We've got some injury time to come.


Liverpool 1-1 Atletico Madrid (4-5 pens)

Atletico Madrid are the Audi Cup champions!


That's Liverpool's first defeat of their pre-season campaign.

SCORED - Liverpool 4-5 Atletico Madrid

Felipe Luis

Job done for Atletico!

SCORED - Liverpool 4-4 Atletico Madrid

Marko Grujic

Liverpool need to score this one...and they do! Grujic sends the keeper the wrong way.

SCORED - Liverpool 3-4 Atletico Madrid

Nico Gaitan

Gaitan sticks it in the top of the net. Diego Simeone punches the air with delight.

SCORED - Liverpool 3-3 Atletico Madrid

Ryan Kent

Oldham lad Ryan Kent steps up and the 20-year-old makes it look easy.

SCORED - Liverpool 2-3 Atletico Madrid


Cool as a cucumber!

SCORED - Liverpool 2-2 Atletico Madrid

Divock Origi

Well placed into the bottom corner from Origi.

SCORED - Liverpool 1-2 Atletico Madrid

Fernando Torres

Keeper Danny Ward nearly gets a foot on it...but the former Liverpool man scores.

GOAL - Man Utd 2-1 Sampdoria

Juan Mata

While all that's going on in Munich, Juan Mata has stroked in from 10 yards out to give Manchester United a 2-1 lead over Sampdoria with 10 minutes to go in Dublin.

Juan Mata

SAVED - Liverpool 1-1 Atletico Madrid

Jordan Henderson

Moya goes the right way but has to reach back with his right arm to keep out Henderson's effort.

Good stop, that.

SCORED - Liverpool 1-1 Atletico Madrid

Antoine Griezmann

A cool left-footed finish for the Frenchman.

SCORED - Liverpool 1-0 Atletico Madrid

Roberto Firmino

Nicely done! Bang into the top deck.

Liverpool 1-1 Atletico Madrid

Liverpool are going to get us started in the shootout. Roberto Firmino steps up...

Manchester United 1-1 Sampdoria

Man United with a great chance to regain the lead in Dublin.

Martial makes a weaving run and feeds to Ander Herrera but the United midfielder's header is saved well by the keeper


Liverpool 1-1 Atletico Madrid

Did anyone order a penalty shootout?

It's coming up!

Liverpool 1-1 Atletico Madrid

Two decent chances for Atletico.

Danny Ward makes a great save to deny Lucas and then Stefan Savic's effort from the resulting corner goes amiss.

Manchester United 1-1 Sampdoria

There's now a Mexican wave happening at the Aviva.

They've been prevalent this pre-season. An epidemic.

GOAL - Liverpool 1-1 Atletico Madrid

Roberto Firmino (82 mins)

Calmly slotted home by Roberto Firmino. We are level!

If it finishes this way after 90 minutes we're going to a shootout.

Roberto Firmino


Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Now then...

Divot Origi is clipped not once but twice - first by Gabi and then Savic.

Penalty to Liverpool!

GOAL - Manchester United 1-1 Sampdoria

Dennis Praet (63 mins)

We are level in Dublin!

Sampdoria break away and have loads of space to make their move.

The ball falls into the path of Dennis Praet, about 20 yards out, and he finishes with aplomb past David de Gea.

Sampdoria's Dennis Praet

Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Gaah, side-netting.

Divock Origi twists and turns on the left-hand side and he drags his shot just wide of the post.

Better from Liverpool.


Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Look out, here comes Fernando Torres. The former Liverpool striker is one of three more changes for Atletico..

Meanwhile, Marko Grujic is set up by a lovely flick from Roberto Firmino but the Serbian's effort goes over the target.

Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Liverpool are pushing for an equaliser here but are constantly coming up against the brick wall-like Atletico defence.

Jurgen Klopp's side need to make their patience pay off.

Manchester United 1-0 Sampdoria

There's nowt much happening in Dublin right now. Man United are playing the ball around nicely but there's not much urgency going forward.

Classic pre-season friendly fodder, basically.

Antonio Valencia

Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

A decent chance for Liverpool, as Andrew Robertson flashes a cross-shot across goal and it's almost turned in by Jose Gimenez.

Liverpool make more changes as Solanke and Wijnaldum make way for Origi and Ejaria


Manchester United 1-0 Sampdoria

Man United have made four changes at half-time.

Pogba, Pereira, Matic and Mkhitaryan have been replaced by Herrera, Fellaini, Carrick and Mata.

Matic looked very impressive for United, FYI.


Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Triple sub for Atletico.

We recognise those blonde locks...Antoine Griezmann enters the fray to warm applause from the Munich crowd.

The much-admired Frenchman comes on alongside Filipe Luis and Gabi.

Augusto Fernandez, Keidi Bare and Sergi make way.

Manchester United 1-0 Sampdoria

Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata are having a proper giggle as the teams return to the field for the second half.

I wish we could mic-up players...imagine the content.

Anyway, we're back under way in Dublin.


Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Another yellow card, this time for Atletico's Sergi, who clips the ankles of Ryan Kent on the sidelines.

Looked painful, that.

Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Wow, there's really nothing going on in Munich.

After a patient build-up, Liverpool substitute Marko Grujic tries to find an on-rushing Ryan Kent, but there's not enough accuracy and La Liga side clear.

That's about it. Maybe two games in two days was a bad idea?

HT: Manchester United 1-0 Sampdoria

I've just rewatched the backpass from Daley Blind which led to the indirect free-kick against Man United in the first half.

Remarkable! No wonder David de Gea was shaking his head...

Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Dominic Solanke takes a gentle touch down and has a go at goal but the Liverpool forward's shot is blocked by the bodies in yellow.

This kid's pretty good, you know.

Dominic Solanke


Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Changes as follows:

OFF: Milner, Mane, Lallana, Can, Flanagan, Woodburn

ON: Firmino, Henderson, Grujic, Robertson, Matip, Kent


Liverpool 0-1 Atletico Madrid

Back under way in Munich.

Liverpool have made six changes!


Manchester United 1-0 Sampdoria

That's it - 45 minutes done in Dublin.

United in control as it stands.

Manchester United 1-0 Sampdoria

Lucas Torreira is in a spot of bother here. The Sampdoria midfielder is rolling around in pain.

Oh, no, hang on. He's back on his feet and after a swig of water he's cured.

Manchester United 1-0 Sampdoria

Quagliarella sends a beautiful free-kick into the box from the right-hand side for Sampdoria and it comes off Lindelof's knee and almost goes in.

Nervous moments for United's new signing.
