How Liverpool can still qualify for the Champions League knockout rounds

  • Virgil van Dijk was far from his usual unflappable self

However, Liverpool now need just a 1-0 win over the Serie A side to seal qualification alongside PSG, who would lead the group should they win over Red Star in their final match.

Last season's beaten finalists are not out yet but they have a tough task to book a place in the knockout rounds of the Champions League.

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

Charlie Nicholas is backing Paris Saint-Germain to claim a 3-2 win over Liverpool FC in the Champions League on Wednesday night. "The last campaign we were stronger through the group stage but we had to win in the last game and managed it, so it's the same this time".

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

There were some sleepy performances from the away side players.

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

"Napoli know that, they'll be well aware of the atmosphere that'll be waiting for them at Anfield", he added. The French club beat Jurgen Klopp and company 2-1 on Wednesday during the fifth matchday.

An uncharacteristic error by Virgil Van Dijk saw the Holland defender half-clear Mbappe's shot to Bernat and he cut inside to squeeze a right-footed shot between the closing Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson with the ball taking a deflection off the defender.

STAR MAN Had it not been for the efforts of Alisson in goal for Liverpool, especially in the first half, then PSG could've been out of sight by half time.

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. There's an outside chance of Liverpool topping the group if they register an unlikely five-goal win over Napoli.

Doing well to deny Di Maria and Cavani, twice, in the first period, before producing a smart stops to keep Marqhinhos' header and Neymar's free-kick in the second half, the Brazilian keeper had a solid night at the Parc des Princes.

If you are 1-0 down then don't commit 10 fouls in the next 10 minutes.
