And here’s your match report:

8.07pm EDT 20:07

“Not everyone wants Liverpool to win,” protests Gloria Greppi.

No, but no one wants to see the sort of injury that was inflicted on Larouci tonight, and it seems a failure of karma that Sevilla scored a late winner.

No matter -- Liverpool will move on with its preseason tour before welcoming its star players for the start of the season proper next month. They may wonder why they can’t do well whenever they visit their corporate brethren in Boston, but they have bigger trophies to chase and defend.

Thanks for following along with us tonight, and if you’re in the USA, may your air conditioning hold out for another week or so.

8.01pm EDT 20:01

FULL TIME: Liverpool 1-2 Sevilla

If this were a Champions League game, Liverpool fans would worry about the result.

But it’s a friendly, which means they’ll just worry about the injury to Larouci on a horror tackle. And they’ll worry about their defense, which looked as shaky as it did before Liverpool broke open the wallets to shore things up at the back.

7.59pm EDT 19:59

90 +4 min: Good ball in from Ryan Kent, and the Sevilla keeper fools no one by pretending to be injured on the routine catch. Boston/Liverpool fans are having none of it.

7.56pm EDT 19:56

90+2 min: We’re into the second minute of a promised five, and Joe Gomez flings a throw-in well into the area.

7.55pm EDT 19:55

GOAL: Liverpool 1-2 Sevilla (Pozo 90)

Direct ball, Liverpool apparently can’t locate a right back, the ball is quickly crossed, and Mignolet can do nothing to prevent an unworthy result.

7.53pm EDT 19:53

89 min: A bit of optimism here for Liverpool ...

Hubert O'Hearn (@BTBReviews)

@duresport Young Ryan Kent may yet get chances to core. Albeit off limited evidence in a friendly, but he looks like he does Coutinho type things at 1/10th the cost of the actual Coutinho.

July 21, 2019

7.52pm EDT 19:52

87 min: El Haddadi sweeps the leg on Duncan. Liverpool might be happy to get out of this without another injury. In the first half, the commentators were complaining a bit much, but Sevilla have gone out for blood in the second half.

7.50pm EDT 19:50

85 min: Sevilla have switched to the traditional 8-1-0 formation. Liverpool impressively pass around the defenders but can’t create a decent chance.

7.47pm EDT 19:47

82 min: And yet, Liverpool’s defense have not impressed here. Young left back Adam Lewis has to scramble to keep a cross from being turned in from five years out.

7.45pm EDT 19:45

80 min: Bobby Duncan will get a few minutes here under the sad circumstances of the Larouci injury. We’re back underway, and play is all in Sevilla’s half.

7.42pm EDT 19:42

Red card! Joris Gnagnon (76 min)

Joris Gnagnon is sent off for for an MMA/kickboxing-style kick to Larouci’s leg.

The crowd groans with two replays of the incident. Gnagnon apparently hasn’t looked, as he spends a while arguing with the ref.

The stretcher has come out for Larouci. It was a simply outrageous play.

Updated at 7.51pm EDT

7.38pm EDT 19:38

73 min: Liverpool are off to the races, with Ryan Kent slaloming through the midfield and handing it off to Milner, who plays ahead for Jones. The young Liverpool prospect doesn’t have a great shooting angle, so he plays it back to Milner, whose shot is blocked.

7.36pm EDT 19:36

70 min: Liverpool defender Ki-Jana Hoever gets the worst of an aerial collision and is down for treatment. The referee decides it’s a good time for a water break.

7.34pm EDT 19:34

69 min: Chance for Curtis Jones, who brings the ball down nicely at the corner of the goal area and immediately shoots. Tomáš Vaclík, Sevilla’s entrenched starter in goal, makes the solid close-range save.

7.30pm EDT 19:30

65 min: The Liverpool youngsters -- Larouci, Curtis Jones, Ryan Kent and Adam Lewis -- have strung together a few passing combinations. Not quite breaking through, but it’s engaging and may eventually lead somewhere.

7.27pm EDT 19:27

62 min: But after bringing on a strong attacker, Sevilla go on the defensive, packing eight players at the top of the area. Liverpool still win a corner and then regain possession.

It’s Yasser Larouci who ends up with the ball, and like Kent, he shows off his capacity to make a strong run forward but might consider sending the ball elsewhere before running into trouble.

7.25pm EDT 19:25

60 min: Two more changes for Sevilla, taking out two players carried over from the second half (Ocampos, Jordan), and bringing on leading scorer Wissam Ben Yedder.

7.22pm EDT 19:22

58 min: Mignolet is called into action again, this time on a corner kick floating to an awkward spot near the back post.

Sevilla are simply picking apart the Liverpool defense at the moment.

7.20pm EDT 19:20

55 min: Two big saves by Mignolet! Sevilla break forward, and El Haddadi takes a powerful shot from the top of the area. Mignolet parries. The rebound goes to Vazquez, whose shot is a little tamer and is smothered by the Liverpool keeper.

7.16pm EDT 19:16

52 min: Ryan Kent makes a strong run between two defenders, one of whom decides he must be held back. Liverpool take advantage of the free kick to knock the ball around at the back. It’s a possession drill.

7.14pm EDT 19:14

51 min: At last, confirmation that Banega’s evening is finished.

Sevilla Fútbol Club (@SevillaFC)

?? Arranca la segunda mitad.

Lopetegui conforma ahora al #SevillaFC con: Vaclík, Corchia, Koundé, Kjaer, Escudero, Jordán, Óliver, Franco Vázquez, Ocampos, Munir y Dabbur. #WeareSevilla #SevillaFCUSTour

July 21, 2019

7.13pm EDT 19:13

50 min: Ian Copestake has some insight into Sevilla’s substitutions: “You may see Klopp come on in the second half to take out Banega himself.”

I’d have to think Banega would have been sent off if this weren’t a friendly in which the ref was pretty sure Banega was leaving at halftime, anyway. might as well let Sevilla play with 11 in the second half.

Ocampos has NOT left the field, and Milner slides to block his shot at uncomfortably close range.

7.11pm EDT 19:11

46 min: We’re underway and desperately hoping Sevilla’s Twitter feed informs us of their lineup changes.

7.07pm EDT 19:07

Liverpool’s second-half lineup

Only 11.

Liverpool FC (@LFC)

Eleven changes at HT. Here's how we line-up for the second half ?#LFCPreSeason??

@duresport "You can’t say that was coming, because it wasn’t."

Is it ever, with Origi? Liverpool can never sell him.

July 21, 2019

Fair enough. They can probably afford to keep him.

Updated at 7.04pm EDT

7.02pm EDT 19:02

Everyone ready for waves of halftime subs?

It’ll take a while for us to get to them all.

6.54pm EDT 18:54

HALFTIME: Liverpool 1-1 Sevilla

Lonergan makes another save as a ball caroms to Ocampos, 20 yards out. That’s the last kick of the game.

We have confirmation that Wilson scored the goal against Borussia Dortmund:

6.51pm EDT 18:51

45+1 min: We’ll get two minutes of added time, which is considerably shorter than the water break actually was.

Wilson cuts in from the right to unleash a powerful shot, but he’s developing a tendency of smacking the ball straight into defenders.

Then Wilson gets a nice unnecessary slap in the face from Banega as they race along the touchline. Banega may be lucky not to get a second yellow.

Our announcers say a few unpleasant things about South Americans.

6.48pm EDT 18:48

GOAL: Liverpool 1-1 Sevilla (Origi 44)

You can’t say that was coming, because it wasn’t. It’s a scrappy set piece, with Alexander-Arnold’s corner kick finding the head of the rising Phillips. The ball bounds up into a Sevilla defender’s arm, but it’s safe to say Liverpool won’t argue with the referee allowing play to continue another second for the unmarked Origi to thump the ball into the net.

The crowd chant Origi’s name.
