Red Star Belgrade vs. Liverpool - Football Match Report

Red Star Belgrade vs. Liverpool - Football Match Report”

Red Star Belgrade secured their first-ever Uefa Champions League group stage win after two goals from towering striker Milan Pavkov helped the Serbian side to a memorable 2-0 home victory over a subdued Liverpool in Group C on Tuesday.

Jurgen Klopp will have made it crystal clear to his players that performances like the one produced against Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday night are simply unacceptable.

"We had the first big chance with Daniel, a very big one".

It was no more than Red Star deserved after the opening 20 minutes. Paris Saint-Germain have five points, and Red Star sit bottom of the group with four points.

Milan Pavkov (Red Star Belgrade): Any number of Red Star's defensive shield could lay claim to the award, but it has to go to the man whose two first-half strikes have clinched a famous result.

With Shaqiri not being part of the travelling party, no changes are likely in the attacking trident for the Reds, with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, both of whom scored in the last game against Crvena Zvezda, expected to slot in on the flanks, while Roberto Firmino spearheads the attack.

Liverpool ideally need to get a result with a tricky tie away in the French capital to come next before a potential qualification decider at home against Napoli at the end of the group. They are now huge games for the rest of Liverpool's season.

"That's the thing, not taking the chances when we're creating them".

"We were not surprised by Red Star's tactics".

Adam Lallana nearly got Liverpool back in the game moments later but his header was deflected just wide, and Sturridge then fired wide from just inside the box.

Last term, when the front three weren't busy scoring so many goals, the rest of the team were getting praise for their aggressive pressing and tackling, especially in midfield. Three other English teams have failed in Europe during this period yet managed to finish the season in a higher league position than the previous year, with Spurs in 2016/17 being the only one of those who could be said to have made progress that season, finishing with 86 points in second place. The Reds remain with their Champions League fate in their own hands, now in second place.

The fan said: "It would even be understandable if it was Marko Grujić because he used to play for red star but it seems like Markovic is doing it as a dig at the club. we should just cut our losses and terminate his contract".
