Red Star Belgrade vs. Liverpool - Football Match Report

Red Star Belgrade earned its first win in the Champions League by beating Liverpool 2-0 to throw Group C wide open on Tuesday.

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.

The early signs suggest Klopp's investment has worked, with Liverpool making an impressive start in the Premier League. We never really came back into the situations. Away from home last season we were very good in the Champions League.

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.

Daniel Sturridge started in place of Roberto Firmino, but the former Chelsea forward blazed over a golden opportunity with the game still goalless. He covers all sport from football, formula one, cricket, rugby, tennis, athletics, mma and wrestling.

"We played well and managed to shut them out".

Red Star Belgrade produced one of the biggest upsets of this season's Champions League by beating Liverpool 2-0 on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT), reviving memories of their time as one of Europe's top football teams.

They conceded a goal from a corner and another from a loss of possession and quick counter-attack against Red Star, both uncharacteristic for the way the team have been performing.

Strong, powerful in the air and seemingly an able striker of the ball, Pavkov's repertoire was too wide-ranging for Liverpool to cope with as he inspired the win with two completely different types of goal.

"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. Maybe we are missing a bit of a spark in terms of not winning four- or five-nil in most games but if he (Klopp) thinks that then we need to try to get it back".

The Reds are now third, level on points with second placed Chelsea and just two points behind leaders Manchester City, with all three sides still unbeaten.

"We have to make sure in Paris that we do better". So they deserved the three points.

"Red Star wanted to strike back, which they did".
