Red Star Belgrade secured their first-ever Champions League group stage win after two goals from towering striker Milan Pavkov helped the Serbian side to a memorable 2-0 home victory over a subdued Liverpool in Group C.

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.

So they could score that one and, out of the blue more or less, they scored the second one.

Napoli and PSG play each other this evening which makes this group even more interesting but there is no doubt that the fans in Belgrade are going to make the game as tough as possible for their English visitors.

Liverpool had a lucky escape at the start of the second period - the referee failing to award Red Star a penalty when a shot struck the arm of James Milner.

"We have to cool the situation down because [we] can not clarify that situation tonight - and it's not our job".

The Reds let their lead slip at Arsenal on Saturday in the Premier League as they drew 1-1 in north London.

He added that there was unrest among local farmers and tribals after she had reportedly killed 13 people in the past two years. The tigress was the mother of two 10-month old cubs and was known to hunters as T1 but Avni to wildlife lovers.

He leapt highest at a corner to head in a right-wing delivery from Marko Marin and put Red Star ahead. They last played in the European Cup in 1991 as holders, when beating the likes of Liverpool would not have been regarded as such a surprise.

"We have had enough chances to get back into the game and we didn't take them".

We didn't start and when you don't start in the Champions League you get punished.

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

The Liverpool boss and his side travel to Belgrade, Serbia to take on Red Star in the competition's group stage. Andrew Robertson's deflected ball in came off the crossbar before Mohamed Salah's effort struck the post.

The tensions date back to the Balkan War, where Serbian forces initiated a conflict against ethnic minorities across Yugoslavia; Shaqiri himself was born in Kosovo. Shaqiri is our player, we love him, and he will play for us a lot of times, but not on Tuesday.
