Liverpool on the ropes as PSG close in on Champions League knockouts

  • Liverpool receive some really disappointing news right before they take on PSG in the Champions League

It has been said before but, with over £400m of Qatari investment in the transfers of Neymar, Mbappe and Cavani alone - not counting a £44.3m outlay on spare part Angel Di Maria - the Champions League is the only competition which really matters for PSG.

If Liverpool win 1-0, they will go through courtesy of Red Star Belgrade's consolation goal in their 3-1 loss to Napoli.

"Everyone was ready to suffer for each other".

With just 24 minutes played, Verratti lunged in high with studs up to catch Gomez high on the shin, and the referee immediately reached for his pocket, only to brandish a yellow card.

Speaking in an interview with The Mirror, Buffon said, "Liverpool have a very strong team - but I do especially look at their front players". "I don't feel it is such a big issue", he said. Napoli and Liverpool are in the qualifying two and have six points each, while PSG are third with five and Red Star bring up the rear on four. Eder Militao's first goal for the club set Porto on its way to a 3-1 win, which ensured it topped the group and sent Schalke through as a group runner up.

If they score the Reds would need to do so three times to qualify ahead of the Italians with a superior head-to-head record.

Harry Kane said Tottenham Hotspur will go "all guns blazing" at Barcelona in two weeks time after Christian Eriksen brought his side back from the dead with the late victor in a pulsating clash with Inter Milan at Wembley.

A number of the home team's players received treatment during the game and Liverpool's players often berated the officials as they believed they were time-wasting.

'They go down in every situation, it's unbelievable. It's not what I say here, it's what we show there. "It will be tough, but it is all to play for". The second one was a counter-attack and with the second ball as well, so that was a massive threat.

Porto and Schalke qualified before their Group D match kicked off thanks to Galatasaray falling 2-0 at Lokomotiv Moscow.

Liverpool began the second half with much more fight, finally taking the game to PSG, and boss Thomas Tuchel was concerned enough to replace midfielder Di Maria with defender Dani Alves and Cavani with the arguably less-talented but more energetic Eric Choupo-Moting.

Borussia Dortmund also qualified following their goalless draw with Club Brugge.
