Liverpool can end Red Star Belgrade’s hopes of qualification when the two sides meet in the Champions League.
The home side are yet to find a victory so far in this season’s competition and should they fail again here, coupled with Napoli gaining victory, that would leave them too far behind the two pace setters in the group.
Liverpool currently top the group on 6 points as their sole defeat in three matches came against second placed Napoli who are just a point behind, while Red Star are yet to achieve 3 points.
Liverpool convincingly won the reverse fixture, 4-0. Liverpool’s other victory came against PSG while Red Star’s sole point was in a draw with Napoli.
Red Star have a full squad available.
Jurgen Klopp has revealed Xherdan Shaqiri will not travel.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Rhian Brewster remain unavailable due to injuries.
Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson both missed Liverpool’s last match against Arsenal and therefore remain doubtful for this fixture.
Potential Red Star Starting XI: Borjan, Gobeljic, Babic, Degenek, Stojkovic, Krsticic, Jovicic, El Fardou Ben, Ebecilio, Srnic, Boakye
Potential Liverpool Starting XI: Allison, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van-Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Shaqiri, Salah, Mane
Head To Head
- Liverpool won the reverse fixture between these two sides in the group, and only fixture in history, 4-0.
Key Stats & Facts
- Liverpool won the reverse fixture, 4-0.
- Red Star Belgrade have scored just a single goal in three group matches so far in this competition.
- Red Star 16/1
- Draw 13/2
- Liverpool 2/9
Liverpool’s front three have scored more than three goals against this opposition already as well as putting three past PSG. I expect a dominant performance by the home side in this one.
Liverpool can make a big claim to the knockout stages by winning this one so I wouldn’t expect any lethargic performance from the Reds. Two of their three matches so far in this competition have resulted in over 3.5 goals including the reverse fixture of this one, and I expect much of the same here.
Sports include football, boxing and cricket. As a 5-year-old supporting Doncaster Rovers, my Saturdays consisted of leaning up against a cold brick wall away at teams like Forest Green Rovers. I never expected then to be sat three tiers high at Wembley watching James Hayter score the only goal in the League One play-off final against Leeds to put pub team Donny into the second tier of English football. Journalism is just my plan to get to the good seats.
