Champions League: Red Star Belgrade upset Liverpool

Champions League: Red Star Belgrade upset Liverpool

Pavkov scored a first-half brace as Red Star stunned Liverpool 2-0 in Belgrade to claim their first win - qualifiers excluded - in Europe's premier club competition since 1992.

However, it would be preferable to avoid a nail-biting Anfield finale which would require them to beat the Serie A side by two goals to overturn their head-to-head record against Carlo Ancelotti's team.

Alisson was also at fault for Alexandre Lacazette's equaliser against Arsenal on Saturday.

"I thought it was a pretty good reaction in the second half, and had an pretty good chance just after half-time and if that gone on it would have been a bit of a boost".

There were plenty of candidates for worst player, but Daniel Sturridge's terrible first half performance was noticeably awful. "We need to come together as a team and try to give what the gaffer wants, try to get the spark and try to win games more comfortably".

"It was a game we lost and that happened not 20 times so far". It could yet be a moment that they look back on and see as a turning point in terms of giving them the shock they need to rediscover their best form, but supporters are right to be slightly concerned after what they saw in Belgrade tonight. Their passing was sloppy, their midfield was ill-disciplined and they seemed to lack any sort of clear game plan.

"We're still to play the best team away and we need to go there and put in a much better performance than we have done". Before that, Liverpool had scored in 14 straight games.




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.

Red Star are expected to be without Vujadin Savic due to injury but Marko Marin is set to return to the squad. The boys are very disappointed, I'm disappointed and we have to do better.

The visitors began to mount some real pressure on the Red Star goal during the final exchanges, but they were unable to carve out anything of note in front of goal.

"We didn't start well enough and that showed with them getting the two goals", Milner added.

"In all areas, we didn't start and when you don't start well in the Champions League you can get punished".

"We knew [about the atmosphere]", he said. Of course, we need to make sure it will not happen again otherwise it will be hard because the next game is already an away game again and the last one is a very hard home game against Napoli.
