Paris - Neymar got what proved to be the winning goal as Paris Saint-Germain breathed life into their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Wednesday that leaves last season's runners-up dangerously close to an early exit.

Liverpool host Napoli in their final game of the group stages.

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.

"I suppose they were in the lead and they were looking to waste time", Robertson told Sky Sports. For me, it was a clear situation - it was inside [the penalty area]. Then I saw the Verratti foul and wow. But we lost because they scored two and we scored one and we didn't play well enough.

"But it's a tight game in a very important competition".

Liverpool protested that Verratti should have been dismissed for a bad foul on Gomez, but the Italy worldwide dominated midfield with a classy display.

"These things are hard to get, but it's our lives, our jobs to take it".

PSG had only won one of their previous seven games in the competition.




An expected late surge by Liverpool never came, and Klopp's side must now earn a third straight win at Anfield on December 11 to advance.

A total of six Liverpool players were booked at the Parc des Princes, compared to just Verratti and Neymar for PSG.

Meanwhile, following the defeat to PSG, Liverpool coach Klopp criticised PSG's gamesmanship during the match.

"When the game starts like that, it's quite hard to gain confidence always", he said.

"Decision-making is the word for tonight, of course, because we couldn't find it", said Robertson.

"We've seen in some parts, wow what a player he looks". It looks like we used elbows and everything. He is the nicest boy on this planet but he was close to getting red and you thought they were all in danger and that made it quite hard.

"If the ref lets that happen then we have to deal with it". We don't need to think we are a shit team, basically.
