Jurgen Klopp risks Anfield BAN for Champions League showdown vs Napoli

Share

While Thomas Tuchel's side are flying in Ligue 1, PSG have only managed to win one of their last seven games in the Champions League.

A 2-1 loss at Paris Saint-Germain in the night's marquee match was Liverpool's fifth straight away defeat in the competition, and sparked wild celebrations in Parc des Princes.

Juan Bernat and Neymar scored first half goals and Liverpool could only muster a James Milner penalty in response.

Despite their enterprising start, the Parisian club were fortunate to keep all 11 players on the field after 25 minutes, as a Marco Verratti challenge on Joe Gomez, which resulted in a yellow card, could've been a red.

"At the same time we have the feeling that in away games we can get it and it's proven".

"The problem I have a little bit is that I, again, have to create the stories with my name - "Klopp said", "Klopp said", the Liverpool manager told BT Sport.

However, they couldn't find a way back into the tie in the second half.

But Klopp was angry after defeat to PSG because of what he perceived as play-acting which the referee didn't spot and could be suspended, say the Metro.

PSG had eight shots on goal, and Liverpool had just one.

And speaking after the game in honest interviews with Sky Sports and LFCTV the Scotsman made his feelings very clear about Neymar and PSG.

With Neymar it was even in the first half. Polish referee Szymon Marciniak did not initially give a penalty but then changed his mind, and Milner beat Gianluigi Buffon from 12 yards. "We know how strong we are and we always knew we could do it", said Mbappe.

So, some kind of response to that certainly would be in order, and we are discussing what the appropriate response should be. Pompeo declined twice to say why Haspel wasn't there, responding with a smile, "I was asked to be here, and here I am".
