Neymar wants referee to be punished after 'disrespectful' comments during game

During stoppage time, Neymar received a yellow card for arguing with Kuipers before taking a free-kick and the Brazilian had to be pulled away from confronting the referee by Kylian Mbappe.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp says there is no reason to panic after his side lost their second Champions League game this season on Tuesday (Nov 6) but concedes another defeat could derail their chances of moving onto the knockout phase.

"I think it made sense to make a few changes, a few we had to make and a few we wanted to", said Klopp.

However, after consultation with VAR he overturned his decision as the superstar had thrown himself to the ground unnecessarily.

'He can not be as disrespectful as he was with me, ' Neymar added.

"But the way he has treated the players showed a lack of respect".

"We know we have to win this game and we hope to have a good match to get a great result".

The run-in is the latest between the pair, who also clashed at the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer when Brazil were taking on Costa Rica. The result pushes the Neopolitans into the top spot of Group C, whilst PSG remains in third place.

The point, and Liverpool's loss to Red Star Belgrade, was enough to keep PSG alive in group play as the French champions sit on five points from four games in Group C.

Buffon and PSG's chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifa both criticised the referee's performance, with Bernat also denied a second-half penalty when felled in the box.

"We'll have to battle until the very end, we're holding on tight", said Ancelotti. "With VAR, these errors are impossible".

DF Thiago Silva, 5 - Involved in the Napoli penalty incident, Callejon's offside or not, it was a soft way to surrender a point to the home side having held out so valiantly. He officiated the Champions League final between Real Madrid and city rivals Atletico in 2014.
