Atletico Madrid won the Audi Cup in Germany after edging Liverpool 5-4 on penalties after the game ended 1-1 in regular time.

After beating Bayern Munich 3-0, Liverpool were not able to replicate the way they played and Atleti were the more positive side with their high pressing. Atletico scored first after Keidi Bare headed in from close range and Liverpool will have themselves to blame for their woeful defending which led to the goal. Roberto Firmino leveled things up for Liverpool from the penalty spot after the break after Origi was fouled but many will argue he went down easily.

In the penalty shoot-out, Atletico Madrid were perfect from the spot, scoring all five penalties. Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson’s penalty was saved by Moya. This was Liverpool’s first ever defeat in their pre-season campaign.
