Paris, Nov 29 : Paris Saint-Germain stayed in contention for a spot in the Champions League knockout stage with a 2-1 home victory over Liverpool in Group C here on Wednesday.
PSG had trailed one point down from Napoli and Liverpool on third prior to Wednesday's clash, and a defeat at the Parc des Princes could result in an early elimination from the European elite club competition for the Ligue 1 powerhouse.
However, PSG demonstrated themselves under huge pressure with first-half goals from Juan Bernat and Neymar. James Milner pulled one back for Liverpool, who failed to make further response in the second half.
PSG welcomed back their superstars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, who had suffered injuries on international duty. (UNI)
