Liverpool risk early Champions League exit after loss to PSG

Liverpool risk early Champions League exit after loss to PSG

We should do the same at times and I think in the second half we did it better.

Will Liverpool shock the soccer world, or will PSG rise to the occasion?

The Reds manager blasted referee Szymon Marciniak after the 2-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain last night.

Liverpool, whose only shot on target was James Milner's penalty to cut PSG's lead in first-half stoppage time, fell to third place in Group C that has proved the tightest this season.

If they beat the Italian side 1-0, they will advance to the knockout stages of the Champions League.

"I know that now the main headline will be "Klopp said" but the number of interruptions in that game was just not cool", Klopp said.

There's every chance the former three time Champions League victor knows exactly what he's doing when he says their game on Monday will be more hard as he tries to make sure his players don't lose focus on the league game.

Three things learned from Ireland v New Zealand
Several times, just when the All Blacks seemed to be clicking into high gear, they either dropped the ball or kicked it away. Of course, plenty can happen until now and Japan but this a moment to watch again and again and again and again.


Substitutes: Alves (5), Choupo-Moting (6), Rabiot (N/A).

While Di Maria didn't cover himself in glory for the challenge that resulted in Liverpool's penalty, Prensel Kimpembe was caught out a few times at the back, and was fortunate that his lack of urgency on the ball, sometimes inside his own area, didn't result in a goal for the visitors.

Klopp was furious with PSG's antics and numerous other decisions that he felt made his team - who picked up six yellow cards - "look like butchers" in their 2-1 loss in Paris on Wednesday.

Alisson was beaten in the 13th minute, though, Bernat rifling into the bottom-left corner after seizing on a loose clearance from Virgil van Dijk.

With Neymar it was even in the first half.

The world's most expensive player had been drawing fouls from opponents and whipping up a fervent home crowd before he burst down the left in the 37th minute, combining with Mbappe.

Liverpool are third in Group C on six points, two behind PSG and three behind Napoli, who they face at Anfield in the final round of matches on December 11. "But other than that, they scored two goals, we lost and that's it".
