Andy Robertson confident Liverpool can win away to Paris Saint-Germain

  • Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge Play – Liverpool Team vs Red Star Belgrade Confirmed

So we have to admit, congratulations Red Star, well deserved.

But It was Red Star marksmen Pavkov who would catch the eye in the Rajko Mitic Stadium.

Almost three decades on, Red Star don't have a household name in their squad and needed to qualify for the group stage through the playoffs.

Liverpool are second in their group behind Napoli although the sides have the same number of points.

Nenad Krsticicuels tussles for the ball with Mohamed Salah.

Red Star made it 2-0 just seven minutes later when Pavkov fired home from 25 yards out. And from the resulting corner, the home side were in front. In Liverpool we controlled the game and tonight we didn't.

"In the second half we were better, we had enough chances to get back into the game and we didn't take them and you get punished".

The visitors almost got lucky 10 minutes after half-time when Andrew Robertson's deflected cross bounced back off the top of the crossbar.

It was Liverpool's third successive Champions League away defeat - the club's worst run in 39 years - and Klopp's side will travel to Paris Saint-Germain later this month before hosting Napoli at Anfield on December 11 in the final round of group matches.


The first real scare for Napoli came on 23 minutes.

Jurgen Klopp's side now sit top of Group C on six points after thrashing Red Star Belgrade 4-0 in the reverse fixture at Anfield last month but the Reds boss knows it will be a much tougher task this evening in front of the hostile Marakana crowd.

This season Jurgen Klopp's side's priority is the Premier League, where they've started brilliantly, but they still have designs on trying to better their surprising run from last season.

That leaves six teams who were dumped out of the Champions League group stages and went on to finish the Premier League in a lower position than the previous year, a rate of 60%.

The Reds must travel to Paris next up to take on PSG, but as we saw in the game at Anfield they are more than capable of beating the French champions and ruffling a few feathers.

"We lost our mojo in the game, not in general".

Meanwhile, Monaco were handed a humiliating defeat that all but ended their Champions League campaign as Thierry Henry once again failed to secure a maiden win as coach.

Milan Pavkov scored both goals as the Group C's basement club picked up their first win of the competition to give themselves hope of continuing in Europe.
