Paris St Germain revived their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 win over Liverpool in Group C on Wednesday, leaving the English club’s hopes of reaching the last 16 hanging in the balance.

PSG set out like a team determined finally to prove their credentials on the big European stage, and went in front in the 13th minute through Juan Bernat, before Neymar made it 2-0 eight minutes before halftime after another lightning PSG counter attack.

Yet with PSG in cruise control, Angel Di Maria needlessly brought down Sadio Mane to concede a penalty, which James Milner converted in first-half stoppage time, to give Liverpool hope.

Liverpool could not find an equaliser, though, slipping to a third away group defeat.

They head into their final group game against Napoli needing to win 1-0 or by two goals or more to guarantee their spot in the knockout stages, while a PSG win over Red Star Belgrade will see them through.
