Atlético win Audi Cup after penalty shootout

Postby FCBayernNews » Wed Aug 02, 2017 10:30 pm

Atlético Madrid downed Liverpool 5-4 on penalties following an intense 1-1 draw, winning the Audi Cup. The English side dominated proceedings for the most part of the match, but Atlético made ruthless use of their first gilt-edged chance after the half-hour, when Keidi Bare netted the rebound after the ball crashed off the crossbar. After the restart Jürgen Klopp's troops ran up vainly against the rock of Atlético's defence but Roberto Firmino netted a spot-kick in the closing stages, sending the game into penalties. Atlético prevailed in the shootout, the second Spanish side to win the high-calibre pre-season tournament after FC Barcelona in 2011. FC Bayern are record Audi Cup winners, having won the trophy in 2009, 2013 and 2015.

Kimmich and the armband

A first for Joshua Kimmich: the Germany international captained FC Bayern for the first time in the encounter with Napoli. It was the first time Kimmich wore the armband in a senior fixture.
