Marco Borrilleo scored in the 90th minute to give Roma a 1-0 victory over Liverpool in an exhibition game Wednesday night at Fenway Park.

There were limited chances until Borriello volleyed in a corner kick from in front.

For the second time in three years, Fenway, the home of the Boston Red Sox, was transformed into the home of Liverpool, which is owned by Fenway Sports Group.
John Henry, owner of the Red Sox, also is the controlling partner of Fenway Sports Group.

Roma beat Liverpool 2-1 at Fenway two years ago.
