Manchester United in Champions League action tonight

Soccer

Mo Salah's second half penalty saw Liverpool edge a Champions League thriller in Madrid last night.

Jurgen Klopp's side beat Atletico 3-2 in Spain.

Antoine Griezmann scored twice to level the game at 2-2, before being shown a red card for a high boot on Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool have maximum points from their first three Group B games, and the sides meet again at Anfield in a fortnight.

Klopp says Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone was probably angry with the "game and the world" after last night's game.

The Argentine stormed down the tunnel at full-time, without shaking hands.

The Reds boss had previously criticised Atletico's style of play.

But he doesn't think that was the problem:

Elsewhere, Lionel Messi's second half brace saw Paris Saint-Germain come from 2-1 down, to win 3-2 at home to RB Leipzig.

PSG are a point clear of Manchester City at the top of Group A.

City were 5-1 winners at Club Brugge.

Riyad Mahrez scored twice in the victory.

Pep Guardiola was full of admiration for his players:

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been defending his position ahead of one of his most important weeks as Manchester United manager.

They play host to Atalanta in the Champions League tonight, four days before Liverpool visit Old Trafford.

Elsewhere this evening, Chelsea entertain Malmo in Group H at Stamford Bridge.
