This was the first game Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain had played within this Champions League.

Before the first half had finished, Liverpool Football Club was storming the game with a finish of 2-1 against the French team, Paris Saint-Germain. Four goals were scored. Two yellow cards were issued. One penalty occurred. The first was was arguably dominated by Liverpool and the second half it felt as if Liverpool were tiring a little. Mo Salah made two silly mistakes - both in the same position. It all went down in this Champion League match. But Liverpool pulled through and scored three goals in total. With Liverpool losing last season to Real Madrid at the finals in Kiev [VIDEO], I think it fair to suggest that Liverpool and its fans are dying to win it this time.

According to Taylor's match report for The Guardian, "Last year’s runners-up are up and running again."

Taking the lead

The first two goals of the game were from Daniel Sturridge at the 30th minute and then James Milner at 36 minutes with a penalty. This made a great start to the game for Liverpool and made the opposition push to attempt to win this game. Sturridge's goal did seem like an accent, with the ball hitting him primarily in his face, but who is complaining? Apart from the Paris Saint-Germain fans.

Paris Saint-Germain's player, Thomas Meunier, scored their first goal in the 40 minutes but could not put them in the lead. It was almost a two-goal difference, but Mo Salah's goal was ruled out because of the foul against the goalkeeper, Alphonse Areola, committed by Daniel Sturridge.

Neither team had used any of their substitutes yet.

The second half of the match

This is when everything started to become a little intense for Liverpool fans. Going into the second half of this match, it seemed as if Liverpool had definitely won this match. With the lead, you would think that Paris Saint-Germain would fight just a little bit harder.

It was a quiet start to the second half, and not a lot of goal scoring happened. The last 10 minutes was what really got every fan watching at the match and at home, really pumping. With Salah's slow pass, PSG had managed to gain the ball and through Mbappé's goal, it equalised the game. At 83 minutes in, Liverpool did not want to have to keep fighting the last couple of minutes.

The teams started to use their subs. Liverpool used all 3 of theirs and PSG used 2.

PSG put Choupo-Moting and Draxler on the field at 80 minutes.

Liverpool staggered their subs a little more. The first was Firmino at 71 minutes, and with an eye injury from the previous match, it was a good job he did not start off in the first 11.

Shaqiri joined the match at 85 minutes in and Fabinho was the last substitute of the game at the 90-minute mark.

And then this is when Liverpool pulled it out the bag! Firmino (and his injured eye) celebrated in the 90+1 minute of the game, scoring the third - and winning - goal for Liverpool. Even Mane joined in with the celebrations and covered his eye, similar to Firmino.

Man of the Match

Now, this did not shock me when watching the game, but Georginio Wijnaldum was the man of the match. What shocks me was how good he played throughout the game. He blocked and deflected, he was the man of the match.

The BBC also agreed with the decision for Wijnaldum as the man of the match was correct as he "Georginio Wijnaldum produced a monumental midfield performance as Neymar and Edinson Cavani stuttered at Anfield and won his side a crucial penalty."

But should I really be shocked? Only last week, he had scored his first ever Premier League away goal, when he scored the opening goal against Tottenham Hotspur.

Now, it is just a question whether or not there will be an English team who can win the Champions League.
