The Embarrassing Stats For Liverpool After They Lose To Red Star Belgrade

07 November, 2018, 09:30 | Author: Drew Briggs
  • Xherdan Shaqiri Sadio Mane Liverpool 2018-19

Jurgen Klopp said he only had 10 fingers when he was asked to explain what went wrong in Liverpool's shock 2-0 Champions League defeat to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.

Liverpool would have been four points clear at the top - for at least a few hours - had they won, but their inability to do so means Napoli or Paris Saint-Germain can overtake them.

In an attempts to "avoid any distractions" Xherdan Shaqiri's presence in Belgrade may inspire, Jurgen Klopp opted to leave the Swiss global out of his Liverpool squad for this week's Champions League tie against Red Star. 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.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has Alisson in goal, while in defence he opts for a centre-back pairing of Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk.

Milan Pavkov (Red Star Belgrade): Any number of Red Star's defensive shield could lay claim to the award, but it has to go to the man whose two first-half strikes have clinched a famous result.

"Shaqiri has looked threatening when he has come off the bench and maybe it is worth trying him on the wing and Salah up front, even if that is a little harsh on Firmino after all the good work he did last season", he added.

Diablo Immortal brings Diablo universe to mobile
It's clear that Blizzard has put a lot of work into making Diablo Immortal , and for a mobile game, it visually looks fantastic. Blizzard announced a new action-role playing Diablo game is coming to iOS and Android devices, titled Diablo: Immortal .

Speaking to Sky Sports, Nicholas said: "This is a volatile situation so not taking Xherdan Shaqiri they're trying to diffuse the situation".

Pakov and Red Star celebrate.

Shaqiri started Liverpool's 4-0 home win over Red Star on October 24.

"I don't think we should head into the game putting more pressure on to our shoulders and thinking that if we don't win we have no chance (of reaching the knockout stages)".

"In the second half I thought we did better, obviously, we had enough chances to get back into the game, but we didn't take them and you get punished".

Daniel Sturridge started in place of Roberto Firmino, but the former Chelsea forward blazed over a golden opportunity with the game still goalless. "There were a lot of moments when we could get in control of the game and we didn't do, we made the wrong decision". The last one is a very hard home game against Napoli. One thing that's for certain is that the Serbian Champions have an impressive home record and have not lost in their last 33 games in all competitions.
