Red Star upsets Liverpool in Champions League

2 Changes: Predicted Liverpool Lineup vs Red Star Belgrade

Salah missed two good chances within a minute for Liverpool midway through the second half, forcing a good save from Red Star keeper Milan Borjan before he shaved the outside of the post with a shot from the edge of the penalty box.

Liverpool's hopes of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League were dealt a significant blow as they slumped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat away to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday evening.

Milan Pavkov scored in the 22nd and 29th minutes as the Serbian champions earned a first win in their debut appearance in the Champions League group stage.

In the event that Liverpool win their next two games against PSG and Napoli, they will qualify as winners of group C.

Red Star, who are playing in the competition's present format for the first time since they won the European Cup in 1991, also have four points after a spirited performance.

The Reds had more than 80% of the possession and hit the woodwork twice in the second half but could not score as Red Star recorded their 10th clean sheet in their last 15 home games in Europe.

'We didn't start well enough, ' Milner said.

Speaking about Tuesday's loss, Klopp continued: "For us it was not clicking, it was not easy". You always try to sort the problem you have on the pitch; you don't find solutions, you sort problems on the pitch - and that's a completely different situation.

Red Star moved onto four points, two behind Liverpool, and their home form means they still has a chance of a top-two finish. Each goal in a game like this leads the game in a specific direction.

We know he changed the game at Salzburg when he came on, that was impressive that day.

"It's one of those periods we need to get through", he said.

"I think Liverpool underestimated us and consequently paid for that mistake".

But Red Star were worthy of the victory - the first they have claimed in the Champions League for 26 years - in front of a noisy and passionate home crowd in the Rajko Mitic Stadium.

The pool is now wide open and with a hard trip to PSG followed by the visit of Napoli, the Reds need to up their level quickly if they are to navigate a path into the knockout stage. "We have to make sure it doesn't happen again".
