Paris SG " - Liverpool 1
liverpool were undone in a first half that saw the defence opened up by a classy Paris team. A penalty converted in the last minute of the first half by James Milner gave them some hope of survival. They were better in the second hall but could not penetrate a strong Paris defence. In the whole game the Paris goalkeeper only had one shot to save. That tells the story. Paris exploited some weakness in the defence and particularly played on Joe Gomez who is good when attacking but his defensive game needs sharpening.
They now have to wine by two goals against against Napoli to stay in the Championship. Not an easy task.
One thing that showed itself for me was the way Clopp went and hugged each of his team in turn to give them confidence.
Unlike Mourinho who kicked and hurled a water bag and the he stormed off with even acknowledging
his team even though they had won.
