Charlie Nicholas states his prediction for Red Star Belgrade v Liverpool FC

Republic of Ireland underage global Caoimhin Kelleher has been called up to the Liverpool squad to travel to Serbia to face Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday.

Crvena Zvezda fans had a choice greeting for Liverpool when the two sides met in Belgrade for their UEFA Champions League Group C clash on Tuesday - with a pre-match choregraphed rendition of "F*ck you Liverpool".

In the opening 45 minutes, Red Star looked a class apart from the team which lost 4-0 at Anfield two weeks ago, as Pavkov netted twice in seven minutes to leave Jurgen Klopp's side trailing by two at half-time.

Much is being made of the intimidating atmosphere that awaits Liverpool's players inside the Rajko Mitic Stadium but defender Andy Robertson has urged his team-mates to lean on their experiences away from home a year ago. Andrew Robertson's deflected ball in came off the crossbar before Mohamed Salah's effort struck the post.

Klopp may not want to give the expected sell-out crowd any more fuel in what should already be a heated contest with Red Star needing to get a result.

So they could score that one and, out of the blue more or less, they scored the second one.

"We just didn't start, and when you don't start in the Champions League, you get punished".

Last season's runners-up are now top of Group C and one point clear of Napoli at the midway point of the group stage.

"They've really put themselves in a bad position in the group".

Red Star moved onto four points, two behind Liverpool, and their home form means they still has a chance of a top-two finish.

And after the latest frustration for Liverpool, Milner told BT Sport: "We didn't start well enough".

Meanwhile, Monaco were handed a humiliating defeat that all but ended their Champions League campaign as Thierry Henry once again failed to secure a maiden win as coach.

"And I said it, he's our player, he will play a lot of games for us but not [on Tuesday], that's all".

A trip to Red Star Belgrade was always going to be a daunting one for the Liverpool squad but even they might have been surprised by the welcome they got prior to kick-off this evening.
