Liverpool vs. Paris Saint-Germain - Football Match Report

Late Firmino strike gives Liverpool 3-2 win over PSG

Liverpool FC blew a 2-0 lead before coming back to win 3-2 against a Paris Saint-Germain side that appeared at times to be overwhelmed by the setting and the occasion in the 2018-2019 Champions League opener.

Roberto Firmino came off the bench to plunder an injury-time victor for Liverpool against PSG in what proved to be a thoroughly entertaining start to their Champions League campaign.

The pair were both part of the Stoke City side that finished 19th in the Premier League last season, garnering just 33 points from 38 games and subsequently dropping back down to the second tier after a 10-year stay in the top flight.

Daniel Sturridge, who had not started a Champions League game since his days with Chelsea in 2012, was given the nod to replace Firmino in attack and the English striker responded superbly.

We were in trouble in the first half, but we showed character and scored.

Milner said: "I think it would be a shame not to use some of the experience I've built up over the 16 years that I've been playing".

It was nearly 2-0 a minute later, PSG scrambling the ball away after excellent work from Mohamed Salah had created havoc, but Mbappe then missed a chance to level when he lifted over from inside the box. The Reds were the first to draw blood as Andrew Robertson sent in a ideal cross onto the head of Sturridge, who then put it past a dazed Alphonse Aereola.

Hatch went on to refer Kavanaugh's accuser Christine Blasey Ford as "this woman" and said, "Whoever she is, she's mixed up". A Judiciary committee statement Sunday accused Democrats of hiding Ford's allegations until the eve of the committee vote.

Having inflicted the first defeat of the season on the French champions, Klopp believes Liverpool have reaffirmed the credentials that took them to the final of the elite European competition last term.

Klopp's midfield three were outstanding, contributing nine tackles, two clearances, 16 regains, two key passes and a goal - Milner from the penalty spot - among themselves. PSG managed to pull a goal back before half-time through Belgian Defender Thomas Meunier, who netted with a smart finish from inside the box.

When the teams emerged from the tunnel for their first Champions League group game and he settled into the technical area, Tuchel was greeted by a more familiar backdrop: thundering, tormenting - the type that ushers in a high tide, the type that can govern a game.

"To come off the bench after his injury at the weekend is incredible really", said Klopp.

"We played with a lot of bravery and mental strength".

The win extended Liverpool's flawless start that includes 5 consecutive wins in the Premier League.
