It has conceded six goals combined in those matches, which were a draw to Inter Milan in the Champions League, a loss against Real Betis in La Liga and a draw at Ateltico Madrid on Saturday.

In Group A Atletico and Dortmund are through but have yet to settle who is first and who is second.

Klopp's men must now count on winning their last game against Napoli, who maintained their one-point advantage at the top of the group with a 3-1 win over Red Star Belgrade.

Barcelona had a lot of the ball in the first 15 minutes, but it was PSV that were having the better moments in the final third, with Hirving Lozano and Steven Bergwijn both causing problems in wide positions. They will undoubtedly field a very good team and want to win this game as well.

De Jong grabbed a consolation goal for the home fans with an 83rd-minute header to set up a frenetic late assault, but despite pouring forward in the closing minutes PSV could not find an equalizer. But the more the game progressed the more chances we were able to create'.


Here's how to watch PSV versus Barcelona online.

PSV are off to a ideal start in the Eredivisie and are gaining consideration as one of the great Eredivisie teams in history.

Barcelona has won its Champions League group a record 20 times, and only a dramatic reversal of form will keep the Blaugrana from adding to its prestigious mark. With Suarez out, Ousame Dembele will likely move into the starting XI.

The victory in the Netherlands was Barcelona's fourth successive against Dutch opposition and ensured that it ended their streak of three winless matches. This goal is not even a surprise to see anymore from the Argentine but we should not play down just how hard and spectacular this goal is.

Here's a detailed look at every player's performance on the night.
