Liverpool fans left fuming with Lazar Markovic actions following Champions League loss

08 November 2018

Liverpool's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stage were dealt a blow as Red Star Belgrade claimed a shock 2-0 win at the Rajko Mitic Stadium. "He needs two proper sessions for his fitness, which he will get at Melwood", Klopp said.

"I don't know how many chances, very good chances, we had tonight, but it felt like a lot".

Red Star drew 0-0 with Napoli in its previous home game.

They got a hard group stage draw when PSG and Napoli came out of the hat with them but they continued their excellent European form with an opening round win against the Ligue 1 champions to put themselves in pole position.

Red Star, who are playing in the competition's present format for the first time since they won the European Cup in 1991, also have four points after a spirited performance.

A loss to French champions PSG would leave them facing a nail-biting shoot-out with Napoli and Liverpool midfielder Lallana knows his team have no excuses for their predicament. We had moments, we had kind of nearly-chances, the biggest in the last two three minutes and before that not enough.

Jurgen Klopp opted to play James Milner, Adam Lallana and Gini Wijnaldum as a midfield three for the game but between them the trio completed zero successful tackles according to the official UEFA website and stats website WhoScored. The second half was really dominant, but we didn't score.

In fact, not since Luis Carniglia in 1957 has a Madrid manager started with three straight clean sheets in three straight wins. Today we did very well, the players were fantastic. "We are facing up with Solari as coach of Madrid", Casemiro said.

Pavkov broke the deadlock with a header from a corner in the 22nd minute, before doubling the hosts' lead from long range seven minutes later.

"Everyone looks at Liverpool in a different way, always expecting great games and many goals".

But Liverpool should have been in front in the 17th minute when the ball ran kindly for Daniel Sturridge inside the six-yard box, but the England worldwide somehow managed to blaze over the bar when completely unmarked.

The side was hamstrung by the inability of that threesome to win the ball - they also conspired to lose it on a number of occasions, notably Milner for the second Red Star goal.

"We have to make sure it doesn't happen again".

The 24-year-old, whose career has stalled badly following his £20 million move to Anfield from Benfica in 2014, was caught liking a tweet celebrating Red Star's victory over Liverpool.
