Brisbane Roar v Liverpool: pre-season friendly – as it happened

Sport Water Bottles

Full-time stats show comfortable possession and key area dominance for the visitors – 58 – 42 % possession for Liverpool with 25-odd shots (8 on target) besting the Roar’s two.

Still, Brendan Rodgers wouldn’t have enjoyed watching the Roar take that early lead, and you feel there might be a few players doing extra hill sprints next training session (presuming 1980s park league training methods are still in practice on Merseyside).

Roar showing glimpses of their fine short-passing game, which will no doubt make Aloisi happy, but a lot more to come, especially at the pointy end, if they’re to take the fight to the Victory’s and Sydney FCs of the league.

Thanks as always for your emails and tweets – we’ll have more live coverage tomorrow night as Manchester City take on Melbourne City.
