Late Firmino goal helps Liverpool beat PSG; Onyekuru wins with Galatasaray

Firmino Liverpool

Roberto Firmino scored a dramatic stoppage-time winner as Liverpool beat Paris St-Germain in a five-goal Champions League thriller at Anfield on Tuesday night.

The Reds got into a commanding 2-0 lead through Daniel Sturridge’s 30th-minute header and James Milner’s penalty in the 36th minute, but the visitors halved the deficit before half time through Thomas Meunier’s volley.

Mohamed Salah thought he had restored the two-goal lead in the second half, but his goal was ruled out for Sturridge’s foul on keeper Alphonse Areola.

Kylian Mbappe then finished off a fine team play in the 83rd minute to level, before Firmino drilled in a 91st-minute winner to deny PSG a point.

In the other game in Group A, Borussia Dortmund beat Club Brugge 1-0 thanks to Christian Pulisic’s fortunate late winner.
