  • 2 Changes: Predicted Liverpool Lineup vs Red Star Belgrade

Liverpool have officially revealed their starting eleven and substitutes to take on Red Star Belgrade in an away Champions League group stage clash this evening.

Klopp opted to rest Roberto Firmino and give Sturridge a rare start, but he endured a hard game.

"We had chances and we came out at the start of the second half which was better, but we weren't ruthless enough and we weren't patient enough".

Red Star are expected to be without Vujadin Savic due to injury but Marko Marin is set to return to the squad. A win at Paris Saint-Germain this month combined with a positive result for Napoli at home to Red Star would secure a place in the knockout phase for last season's beaten finalists.

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.

And it has ultimately left Liverpool with real work to do in their final games away to PSG and at home to Napoli.

Liverpool will embark on a trip to Belgrade, as they gear up to take on Serbian outfit Crvena Zvezda in their Group C encounter of the 2018-19 UEFA Champions League at the Rajko Mitic Stadium on Tuesday night.

"We had chances but we weren't ruthless enough, weren't patient enough".

With the confidence flowing, Pavkov then doubled Red Star's advantage six minutes later, holding off the challenge of Georginio Wijnaldum before steadying himself and firing home from 25-yards out.

After a frustrating opening 15 minutes, Liverpool should have been ahead when Daniel Sturridge found himself free at the back post following a risky pass across the box, but the striker could only blaze the ball over the bar from just six yards out.

"The atmosphere noise wise was not a problem for us".

"The gaffer, win or lose, he always speaks more the day after the game because that's when he can clear his head and that's where he gets the best out of us, where he can talk from his thoughts", said defender Andy Robertson. The second half was really dominant, but we didn't score.

"They were on their bikes and we had to deal with the situation".

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

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.
