Champions League: PSG 2-1 Liverpool

Liverpool face a nervy battle to reach the Champions League knockout stage after suffering a damaging 2-1 defeat against an impressive Paris St-Germain.As things stand Jurgen Klopp’s side, who were beaten finalists last season, are third in Group C and need to beat first-placed Napoli at Anfield next month to progress, with the Serie A side defeating Red Star Belgrade 3-1 in the other game.

The Premier League side were outplayed for large periods of the game in Paris and James Milner’s penalty on the stroke of half-time was their only shot on target in a lacklustre showing.By that point, they had already fallen two goals behind as Juan Bernat squeezed home the opener after Virgil van Dijk’s poor clearance, before Neymar started and finished off a swift team counter-attack to double the advantage.PSG could have had a more comfortable scoreline in the second half but Marquinhos had a goal disallowed for offside, and the defensive midfielder also had a header kept out by Brazilian compatriot Alisson.
