Liverpool FC Champions league progress in doubt after loss to Red Star

Liverpool FC suffered a huge setback in their Champions League ambitions after losing 2-0 in Serbia against Red Star Belgrade.

Victory would have taken Liverpool four points clear at the top of Group C but they will be knocked off that spot later on Tuesday, whatever the result between Napoli and Paris St-Germain, who kick off at 20:00 GMT.

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.
