  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Liverpool recently purchased Fabio Borini from Roma for 13 million euros plus bonuses. Three years ago the Reds paid a reported 20 million euros for Alberto Aquilani from the Rome-based club.
  • This game will take place at Fenway Park, which isn't a coincidence. NESV, which owns the Boston Red Socks, also runs Liverpool. A group headed by NESV minority owner Thomas Di Benedetto operates Roma.
  • Roma geared up for this match by thrashing Zagłębie Lubin 4-0. Liverpool drew 1-1 with Toronto at BMO Field.
  • Liverpool finished eighth last season. During the offseason it dismissed club icon Kenny Dalglish and replaced him with former Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers as manager.
  • Roma also changed coaches. Luis Enrique stepped down, so Roma re-hired Zdeněk Zeman. Zeman's quickly approved the signing of American midfielder Michael Bradley.
