Liverpool are through to the next round of the UEFA Champions League following their 1-0 win over Napoli at Anfield.

Egypt international Mohamed Salah's lone strike in the 34th minute ensured the Reds survived the scare of the Serie A giants in the game.

Jurgen Klopp's men were unsure of their chances before the meeting having gathered just six points after five matches.

With Napoli and Paris Saint Germain occupying the first and the second positions on the log after the same number of matches.

However, with their slim victory on the night, they finished second behind French League side PSG on Group C table.

The Parisians on the other hand thrashed FK Crvena Zvezda 4-1 at the Stadion Rajko Mitic on match day six to finish at the summit of the table with 11 points.

While Liverpool and Napoli were tied on points but the Premier League side progressed after scoring more goals in the process.
