Red Star Belgrade 2-0 Liverpool: Reds Stunned In Champions League Defeat In Serbia

Liverpool suffered a shock in Serbia as two goals from Milan Pavkov gave Red Star Belgrade victory in their Champions League group-stage encounter.Victory would have taken Liverpool three points clear at the top of Group C but they drop to second following Napoli’s draw with Paris Saint-Germain in Italy. Forward Pavkov headed his side into the lead after 21 minutes and fired a powerful effort into the bottom corner to make it 2-0 shortly afterwards.The hosts dominated the first half and came close through Vujadin Savic and El Fardou Ben Nabouhane before Pavkov’s opening goal. Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge squandered a great chance from six yards out in the 17th minute. The Reds had more than 80% of the possession and hit the woodwork twice in the second half but could not score as Red Star recorded their 10th clean sheet in their last 15 home games in Europe.Photo Credit: Getty
