Neymar turns in 8/10 performance as PSG impress despite draw at Napoli

The result leaves the French champions third in Group C, but the Brazilian was unhappy with the way he was spoken to during the game. As well as dropping points at home to Napoli, the Parisians lost in their sole away match to Liverpool. A game which could have major consequences on who will qualify from Group C. Napoli now have the upper hand on the Parisians with one point in second place. Liverpool slipping up in Belgrade was an unexpected bonus, so it really does feel like an opportunity was missed in Italy - even if a point is nothing to be ashamed of.

After three games, Liverpool are first in Group C with six points, one point ahead of Napoli and two points ahead of Paris Saint-Germain.

The first real scare for Napoli came on 23 minutes when Mbappe ran on to Neymar's looping cross to fire a left-footed half volley that dipped just over David Ospina's crossbar.

Lorenzo Insigne scored a second-half penalty to ensure that Napoli & PSG played out a feisty 1-1 draw on Tuesday evening.

MF Marco Verratti, 7 - Booked late on as his frustration got the better of him, it was understandable - he paired well with Julian Draxler in the middle and was metronomic for PSG over the 90 minutes.

45- Goal! Juan Bernat slides it into the net, although Mbappé made that on the breakaway!

MF Julian Draxler, 7 - Another convincing central midfield performance, which genuinely should have Adrien Rabiot anxious about his starting role.

He is likely to make the squad, but is not certain to start against his former team, with Angel Di Maria in form and ready to line up alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.

The biggest question mark remains hanging over Edinson Cavani's involvement on his return to Naples.

The attacker was booked in injury time for dissent, as he waited to take a free-kick.
