Red Star Belgrade earned its first win in the Champions League by beating Liverpool 2-0 to throw Group C wide open on Tuesday.

Jurgen Klopp's side have made a solid start to the new season under the German manager and they are now third in the Premier League table and two points off top spot after 11 games.

Naby Keita has returned to training just in time to face Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League group stages this evening but is expected to start from the bench after being out with a hamstring injury for two weeks.

The visitors got off to a superb start as they raced into a three-goal inside 25 minutes, with Hans Vanaken netting a brace while Wesley netted the third. We come here as one of the biggest clubs in the world.

"That's what we have to be again tomorrow and then let's do what we are best in - playing football - and try to win the game".

The Champions League match between Liverpool and Red Star Belgrade will be broadcast live on TNT. 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.

The Reds soon took charge, though their luck in front of goal showed no sign of improving, as a deflected Robertson delivery hit the crossbar and Salah's 72nd-minute effort clipped the outside of the upright.

Jamal Khashoggi was strangled and dismembered, Turkish chief prosecutor says
A source close to the Saudi Royal Palace told CNN last week that the location of Khashoggi's body was not known to the Saudis. Mr Khashoggi's family vehemently denied that he was in any way unsafe or a member of the Muslim Brotherhood .

Gomez put in a solid shift at right back and the reds looked much more comfortable in possession on the right flank after he was introduced, even if they failed to create anything of note going forward.

The defeat heaps pressure on Jurgen Klopp's side to get results against Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli in their final group stage fixtures, if they want to reach the knockouts.

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

Former Arsenal star Nicholas seems to think that the Reds will take all three points with a 2-0 victory. Red Star drew 0-0 with Napoli in its previous home game.

"We won against a big club and this is a first win in the Champions League for any club in this country and this is why this generation can become equal to earlier generations and enter history".

"We gave the ball away and that's not cool in a game like this, an atmosphere like this, a situation like this".
