UEFA Champions League matches, results LIVE: Liverpool, Tottenham and Barcelona in action

We are halfway to the fifth day of the Champions League, with Barcelona, ​​Liverpool and Tottenham among those who are in action tonight, facing very different situations.

Barça, along with Real Madrid, Manchester United and Manchester City are safe in the playoffs, while the Spurs and Liverpool have everything to play.

The Spurs, in particular, face a real fight if they're going to get to the last 16, but Mauricio Pochettino's team has been in good shape and will have confidence in beating anyone at Wembley.

Liverpool, for its part, will reserve its place in the last 16 with a win in Paris, which is one of our three key live matches tonight.

Stay tuned to Standard Sport for all the preparation of Tottenham vs Inter Milan, PSG vs Liverpool, PSV vs Barcelona, ​​and all the latest news of the Champions League …

Live updates


What Tottenham needs to qualify from Group B

Tottenham is in a situation that must win against the giants of Serie A, Inter Milan, tonight.

Harry Kane's late parenthesis against PSV Eindhoven in week 4 of the matches kept his team's hopes alive, but the north side of London still has a mountain to climb if they want their Champions League campaign to continue after December.

They track opponents tonight by three points before the start with Inter's reputation as the kings of the group's return, another obstacle for Mauricio Pochettino and his team to overcome.

The Nerazzurri came from a goal behind to ensure victory over the Spurs at San Siro in the first week of the game, repeating that trick to PSV in October.

Mauro Icardi joined his Champions League account the last time he participated in a 1-1 draw against Barcelona with Luciano Spalletti's team again behind.

While Tottenham have the small problem of a North London derby against Arsenal looming on Sunday, they can not afford another mistake tonight.

This is what Tottenham needs to qualify in Group B of the UEFA Champions League …

Tottenham must beat Inter Milan at Wembley in the next game to preserve the possibility of qualifying.

If they do, the London team would have to improve Inter Milan's performance against PSV Eindhoven when they face Barcelona at the Nou Camp in their last group game.


What Liverpool needs to qualify from Group C

The loss to Liverpool at Parc de Princes on Wednesday could spell disaster for Paris Saint-Germain.

The French champions are in a precarious position before their penultimate game of the group stage of the Champions League, with only one point separating the two sides while we count to start.

The side of Thomas Tuchel has been fueled by the news that Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are eligible for the contest, however. Both strikers were injured in friendly matches for their respective countries during the recent international break, but both are expected to enter the XI starter tonight.

Liverpool have conceded just five times in 13 Premier League games this season, but have conceded the same amount in four Champions League outings.

For now, however, his fate is in his own hands with his 3-2 victory over PSG in the reverse calendar, underlining his European ambitions once again this term after his near miss last season.

This is what Liverpool needs to qualify in Group C of the UEFA Champions League …

Liverpool will qualify if they beat PSG in Paris. If they tie, the Merseyside team would need to match or improve the PSG result in the final game to secure a spot in the last 16.

If they lose in Paris, Liverpool can still pass if they beat Napoli by more than two goals in the final phase of the group stage.


Tottenham vs Inter Milan

Harry Kane and Mauro Icardi would form a fantastic partnership from the beginning in agreement with one of the great scorers of Italian football.

The two goal-scorers, who have seven goals each other in the Champions League so far this season, will face off at Wembley tonight as Tottenham take on Inter Milan in a key Group B clash.

The Spurs need a victory, in addition to victory away from Barcelona, ​​to have any real chance of advancing to the knockout stages.

But they know very well the dangers that Inter and Icardi pose, having seen a 1-0 lead turn into a 2-1 defeat in the last seven minutes of their meeting at San Siro in September.

Kane and Icardi will have a lot to say about who wins this match tonight, but for former Juventus and AC Milan striker Filippo Inzaghi, it is so difficult to separate the two that, in fact, it is better to associate with them.

"Icardi is a very good striker in the box because he can find his space thanks to lethal movements," explained Inzaghi al Sol.

"Kane, thanks to his physical presence, can play in all positions of the midfield and attack the sides because he has that strength.

"I like it because I feel like he's always in the game, with his mind helping his teammates a lot."

"I can not choose who is the best among them, for me, they can play together and, as a coach, I would like to train such fantastic players."
A partnership of Kane and Icardi? Imagine that!

PSG vs Liverpool most recent

Jurgen Klopp is expected to make only one change in the lineup that defeated Paris Saint-Germain in September, when the two sides renew their rivalry tonight.

An injury in the eye prevented Roberto Firmino from beginning that last match, the Brazilian came to score the decisive goal in a 3-2 victory for the hosts at Anfield.

However, it is likely to present itself from the beginning at the expense of Daniel Sturridge at the Parc des Princes in an initial, otherwise familiar XI.

That means it starts for the trusted trio of Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner in the center of the park.

Meanwhile, Joe Gomez will be restored in the center of defense after losing Dejan Lovren for the weekend win at Watford.

As for the hosts, it is believed that Thomas Tuchel is considering two surprise changes in his lineup, as he seeks to avoid a defeat that would end PSG's hopes of reaching the knockout stages.

Marquinhos has been backed to retain the midfield role he held at Anfield earlier this year at the expense of Adrien Rabiot.

It is also expected that defender Thomas Meunier, who scored in that game, will be lost, with Thilo Kehrer preferred.

Liverpool: Alison, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

PSG: Buffon, Kehrer, Kimpembe, T. Silva, Bernat, Marquinhos, Verratti, Di Maria, Mbappe, Neymar, Cavani.

Pep Guardiola explains why Phil Foden did not start

Pep Guardiola has revealed why he left Phil Foden out of his starting lineup against Lyon, saying he wanted to play with all the forwards he had.

Manchester City reserved their place in the knockout phase of the Champions League with a 2-2 draw in France.

Despite not having the injured Kevin de Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan, Guardiola still named Foden, 18, on the bench.

But in explaining his decision, he said he wanted to overwhelm Lyon with his attack.

Raheem Sterling started in the midfield, with Sergio Agüero, Leroy Sane and Riyad Mahrez all named in front.

"I decided on another player," Guardiola said, when about Foden and his pre-match comments that the teenager was ready to begin. "Everyone here is ready, but I imagine playing this game would be difficult."

"Every game I make mistakes, I came here to show that we wanted to win and I put all the forwards we have."

Maxwel Cornet put Lyon twice ahead in the second half, but the goals from Aymeric Laporte and Agüero ensured that the City advanced to the last 16 for the sixth consecutive year.

Guardiola added: "Being here is a great success. People say that it is not enough, but we have achieved an incredible, incredible achievement for us.

"Now is the time to enjoy it and I hope we can arrive in February in the best conditions."

Why did José break those water bottles?

Jose Mourinho says he broke a set of side water bottles of relief after seeing his side secure a late victory over the Young Boys.

Marouane Fellaini hit in stoppage time to secure a victory that saved United's place in the last 16 Champions League matches after a frustrating night against the Swiss champions.

United discarded a series of opportunities with David de Gea, once again rescuing his team with an impressive save before the Belgian finished in the first minute of injury time that caused the celebrations of Mourinho.

Explaining what triggered the water bottle incident, the United chief said: "Relief. Frustration with that and relief with the goal. I think we did not play for that, we did not play for 0-0.

"We did not play to be in trouble until the last minute, so the frustration, I was not unhappy with the players, not at all."

The victory ensures that United will travel to Valencia for their final group game with their place in the qualifying rounds of the competition already secured.


PSG vs Liverpool

We spoke with Sabrina Belalmi, PSG's correspondent for Goal.com before tonight's game, who says it will be a "scandal" & # 39; if the Ligue 1 team does not reach the knockout stages.


Tottenham vs Inter Milan

Mauricio Pochettino The prospect of encouraging his side to a miraculous escape from his group of the Champions League is driven by Jonathan Veal, of the Press Association.

The Spurs have to beat Inter Milan at Wembley on Wednesday to have any chance of bringing their hopes of qualification to the final group game.

Even if they see off the side of Serie A, it is very likely that they will still have to go to Barcelona and win to stay in the competition after Christmas.

As expected, not many people are giving them a great opportunity, which is music to Pochettino's ears.

"It's a massive motivation," said the Tottenham boss. "When people say something is going to be difficult, for me it's like I'm so excited to try to prove that it's completely different and that it's possible."

"For me it is a massive motivation and for us it is a massive motivation.

"Of course we need to win both games, but let's try.

"We are sure that we will try to do our best to achieve it."

If Tottenham play like they did against Chelsea on Saturday, in which they defeated their London rivals, then they will get a share of the work.

Although Chelsea were poor, the Spurs were at their best and posted their most impressive result since beating Manchester United 3-0 in August.

However, Pochettino was happier with the reaction after the game.

"I was very happy after the game, it was a very good victory for us," he said. "But the most important thing is to maintain humility, I was very disappointed after the victory of Manchester United at Old Trafford.

"I remember that many players talked about winning the title and it was only at the beginning and three points like the others.

"I'm happy because learning to maintain humility is the most important thing, now we have to show that we are in good form and use Chelsea's performance as an example."

"The most important thing is to talk about the playing field and the attitude we show, talk outside the field, of course, but always be humble because you see things in a different way and think it's so good and you do not." I need to make an effort in the field. "

Jan Vertonghen will start his first game since September after a hamstring injury, while Danny Rose will also participate in the team after missing seven weeks with a groin problem.


PSG vs Liverpool

Some of the most noble acts of society are actually those that go unnoticed. And after being seen cleaning toilets in his local mosque, Liverpool forward Sadio Mane revealed that he would have preferred his act of kindness to remain private.

The 26-year-old is a devout Muslim and reportedly visits the Al-Rahma mosque in Liverpool regularly.

During a meeting in September, a few hours after Liverpool had triumphed over Leicester, Mane encountered a worship partner who was tasked with cleaning the mosque bathrooms.

So the Senegalese decided to offer to help him, apparently, he took pictures of him helping. When he realized, Mane revealed that he asked the unidentified person not to upload it to the Internet.

"I am a Muslim, I pray five times a day and, as soon as I can, I do it in the mosque," he told the French newspaper L & # 39; Equipe.
"Once I went there, and when I met a very good friend, a Ghanaian.

"I invited him to have some tea at home after the prayer and he said:" No, I have to work, I have to wash the mosque bathrooms. "
"I told him we were going to do it together." At that moment, someone filmed us and asked him not to put it online.

"He swore he would not do it and the next day he was on the internet, but it does not really matter."

Mane, who arrived from Southampton in 2016, recently signed a new five-year contract that will keep him in Anfield until 2023.


Good morning, and welcome again to the LIVE Champions League LIVE blog from Evening Standard as we move into the second round of matches on the fifth day.

Well, that's all for tonight's drama: we'll be back tomorrow for more action in the Champions League, with Liverpool, Tottenham and Barcelona in action.

Mourinho speaks to his & # 39; lovers & # 39;

The head of Man Utd has told BT Sport: "It's a very difficult group and qualifying with a game to spare is good." The performance had many good things and many disappointing things as well.

"We lost too many opportunities, crucial at crucial moments, this is the kind of game that if you win in the first minute you will usually get a different performance, you could pay with a draw and also with a loss, only David de Gea had a save but it seems a saved phenomenal, a save that the best goalkeeper in the world makes and gives his team the chance to win the game.

"The most important thing is to qualify and for some of my lovers, and for those who like statistics, I have 14 seasons in the Champions League and 14 times my teams were classified in the group stages." The season was not in the Champions League League, I won the Europa League. "

I said that José Mourinho took over a box of drinks after that goal. I was wrong. It was two o'clock.

The textbook kicks one envelope, launches a second technique. Glorious.

Manchester City defender Kyle Walker has been talking to BT Sport.

"There are still things that we have to work on, it's completely different from the Premier League, there are still things that we have to go through, but we're done and we hope we can get a good draw."

"They gave us a good game in Etihad, so we knew it would be a difficult game, they have good players in good areas and fast players, but we got a good draw."
