UCL: Liverpool, Tottenham Sneak into Champions League last 16
English teams, Liverpool and Tottenham have both progressed to the knockout stages of the Champions League after a nerve-racking night at Anfield and the Camp Nou.
Mohamed Salah scored Liverpool’s only goal of the night in the first half but the Reds should have put the game to bed with Sadio Mane guilty of missing a number of fine chances.
Arkadiusz Milik had a golden chance to equalise for Napoli in the dying stages but Alisson produced an extraordinary save to confirm Liverpool’s 1-0 win.
Paris Saint-Germain’s win in Belgrade means Liverpool finish as runners-up, while Napoli will drop into the Europa League.
On their part, Tottenham got a crucial draw against Barcelona who fielded a weakened side at the Camp Nou.
The Catalans took the lead after a stunning run and finish from Ousmane Dembele. Spurs missed a number of clear chances through Heung-Min Son and Christian Eriksen but substitute Lucas Moura was on hand to tap in Harry Kane’s cross into the last ten minutes.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men picked up just one point from their first three matches but progress to the last-16 as runners up to Barcelona. The draw for the knockout stages takes place on Monday.
