Record-breaking Neymar leaves Liverpool on the brink

Juergen Klopp's side need a 1-0 win, or a victory by a two-goal margin or more, to progress.

Liverpool's 2-1 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the Parc de Princes has made their qualification ambitions from Group C of the Champions League a fair bit more hard.

"I expect Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to be back and PSG know they have to go for it, so I expect a great game of football and loads of goals", Nicholas told Sky Sports.

"We have won the fair play league twice in England but we looked like butchers when you see the yellow cards we had".

What was more impressive however was they way they managed the game throughout the 90 minutes, as Jurgen Klopp's side rarely threatened Buffon's goal, to give Tuchel's side a priceless three points in Group C.

"I look like a bad loser, but I don't care", said Klopp.

The former RB Leipzig midfielder came on in the second half against PSG in Liverpool's Champions League game on Wednesday, however he had no impact on the result.

Thomas Tuchel, the PSG coach, was unimpressed by his rival's observations.

The Monday closure of GM's plant in Oshawa, Ontario, was confirmed late Sunday by an official familiar with the decision. Most of the factories to be affected by GM's restructuring build cars that will not be sold in the USA after next year.

Klopp was incensed by the "behaviour" of Les Parisiens and their on-field antics as they rode out 2-1 winners throughout Liverpool's loss which now leaves them in the precarious position of having to beat Napoli by a 1-0 scoreline or at least two goals at Anfield.

Angel Di Maria forced an early save from Alisson and the goalkeeper was soon in action again, Neymar firing straight at his fellow Brazil worldwide.

"Not like in terms of who plays, in the mental aspect, maybe it can happen, you feel like five per cent too sure that you're the better side, and the first shot is in from the other side".

That should have ensured a comfortable cushion for the hosts at the break, but Liverpool were gifted a route back into the game in first-half stoppage time.

The France star crossed low for Cavani, whose attempt was saved by Alisson, but Neymar converted the rebound.

Di Maria brought down Sadio Mane just inside the area.

"We were not anxious about playing at home".
