Substitute Roberto Firmino scores last-gasp Champions League winner for Liverpool in the 3-2 win over Paris Siant-Germain at Anfield on Tuesday night in the Group C opener. 

Daniel Sturridge gives the Reds the lead in the hour mark of the encounter in the first start of the season as nod past Alphonse Areola with a thumping header from Andy Robertson's cross.

Six Minutes later Liverpool extend their lead after Georginio Wijnaldum was tripped down by former Bayern Munich star Juan Bernat as James Milner fired home a penalty to make 2-0.

But the gloss was taken off their first-half display as right back Thomas Meunier pulled a goal back for PSG before the break.

England international Sturridge had chances to get his second of the game part two of the match Kylian Mbappe appeared to have salvaged a draw for PSG after levelling the scores in the 83rd minute, but the World Cup winner then gave away possession 25 yards out from his own goal.

Firmino, who started on the bench due to an eye injury suffered against Tottenham on Saturday, rifled across Alphonse Areola to ensure last season's beaten finalists got off to a victorious start in Group C on Tuesday.
