Liverpool are in real danger of exiting the Champions League at the group stages after Neymar led PSG to a 2-1 win in Paris.

With Group C finely poised before the two European giants clashed in the French capital, PSG took the initiative with two early goals to leave Jurgen Klopp’s side with a mountain to climb.

Juan Bernat capitalised on some poor defending from Virgil van Dijk to strike a low effort past Alisson after 13 minutes, and Neymar struck from close range 14 minutes later after the Liverpool goalkeeper made a point-blank save from Edinson Cavani.

Angel Di Maria’s senseless tackle on Sadio Mane led to a Liverpool penalty on the stroke of half-time, and James Milner finished coolly to give the visitors hope for the second half.

Despite Liverpool’s efforts after the break, they fell to a damaging defeat at Parc des Princes which leaves them needing to beat Napoli at Anfield in their final group game in order to reach the knockout stages of the competition.
