PSG v Liverpool: Fireworks charges brought against French champions by Uefa

This was a bizarre decision

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.

Jurgen Klopp has criticised the playacting of certain Paris Saint-Germain players and the performance of the Polish referee during Liverpool's 2-1 loss in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The sense of frustration at finding themselves in such a delicate position was further fuelled by Klopp's anger at PSG's antics as they sought to cling on to a crucial victory gleaned through first-half goals from Juan Bernat and Neymar.

Marco Verratti was running the game in midfield, although the Italian was fortunate not to be sent off for a unsafe tackle on Joe Gomez midway through the first half.

"We won three times in a row the Fair Play table in England, today we looked like butchers". I don't know if there's any explanation for that right now because I can't think of one - otherwise we should have used it already.

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

Meanwhile, following the defeat to PSG, Liverpool coach Klopp criticised PSG's gamesmanship during the match. PSV got one back through Luuk de Jong.

A 1-0 win for Liverpool or a win by two goals or more would see them advance instead of Napoli, as long as PSG beat Red Star.

After such an important win, it would be churlish to put forward a string of minor negatives but the one that must be noted is that Liverpool scored, and the final score does not do adequate justice to PSG's performance as a outcome.

Angel di Maria had forced a fine save from Alisson with a dipping volley before Paris went in front in the 13th minute.

MF Adrien Rabiot, NR - He was not lacking commitment when he was given five minutes towards the end and mucked in with everybody else as things got feisty.

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

Sadio Mane went to ground under Di Maria's challenge, referee Szymon Marciniak initially giving a corner before changing his mind, and Milner sent Gianluigi Buffon the wrong way.

France forward Griezmann doubled Atletico's advantage midway through the first half, delivering a neat finish with the outside of his left boot from close range. "We know how strong we are and we always knew we could do it", said Mbappe.
