Liverpool will have to wait until the final day to see if they will make the last-16 of the Champions League.

Paris Saint-Germain managed to seal a priceless 2-1 win over the Reds at the Parc des Princes, with goals from Juan Bernat and Neymar.

James Milner pulled one back late in the first-half from the penalty spot after a bizarre foul from Angel Di Maria on Sadio Mane.

It was a game littered with controversy, with Marco Verratti somehow escaping a red card for a reckless challenge on Joe Gomez.

There were also a few moments of play-acting from Thomas Tuchel's side, Neymar the one targeted most by fans on Twitter.

And the Brazilian - who had the beating of Jordan Henderson throughout - was involved in a really bizarre moment with the PSG crowd in the second-half.

The Ligue 1 champions were slightly on the back foot and it seems Neymar was growing frustrated at not getting the ball.

However, instead of keeping his eye on play, the 26-year-old turned and gestured to the crowd, missing Presnel Kimpembe's pass in the process.

It's not something you see everyday.


Neymar would have been in a great position to test the Liverpool defence had he actually collected the ball.

Clearly just couldn't resist the chance for a Box Office moment.

Liverpool will now have to beat Napoli at Anfield in game week six and there are a lot of mitigating circumstances on that game.

If Liverpool win 1-0, they will go through courtesy of Red Star Belgrade's consolation goal in their 3-1 loss to Napoli.

However, if the Neapolitans win 2-1, they will go through. Aside from a 1-0 win, Liverpool will need to win by two clear goals to progress.

As for PSG, they face the relatively easier task of simply needed to get a point away at Red Star Belgrade.
