Champions League: Red Star Belgrade upset Liverpool

  • Reports: Klopp Considering Dropping Shaqiri From Belgrade Visit

Two first half goals from a €300,000 signing Milan Pavkov, the 24-year-old scoring his first European goals in only his 11th appearance, were enough to beat the off-colour Reds. A deflected cross from Andrew Robertson also bounced onto the crossbar after the break.

Pakov and Red Star celebrate.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner told United Kingdom broadcaster BT Sport that Liverpool had problems "all over the field" in the first half and never properly recovered. In his stead, Daniel Sturridge fitted into Liverpool's attacking triumvirate alongside Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

With their final games against PSG and Napoli, Liverpool have to be on tip-top form in order to finish in one of the progression spots.

Liverpool might have dropped two points in the Premier League away to Arsenal but Klopp will be expecting his side to get back to winning ways in the next two fixtures as Red Star and Fulham prepare to face the Merseysiders.

Liverpool went into the game hoping to open up a four-point gap at the summit before Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain faced each other later on Tuesday, but the visitors fell well short of expectations.

Milan Pavkov scores a spectacular second goal. It's not the first time we've lost games and it's about how you react and how you bounce back but we are thoroughly disappointed to come away with nothing.

"It was a slow start all round really and we gave them far too many opportunities, especially from set-pieces", he added. I don't say it is already serious if we lose twice but we have to make sure it will not happen again otherwise it will be hard as the next game is already an away game [at Paris Saint-Germain].

Markovic is, of course, Serbian - and part of him obviously feels proud that a team from his country managed to pull off a memorable Champions League victory.

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

Monaco, a semifinalist in 2017, slumped to a 4-0 home loss to Club Brugge, who registered their first win in Group A.
