FK Crvena zvezda - Liverpool
Liverpool need to complete the double over Red Star Belgrade before their crunch showdowns with Group C rivals Napoli and Paris St-Germain, and Jurgen Klopp’s men should deliver the goods in Serbia.Two weeks after thrashing the Serb champions 4-0 at Anfield, Liverpool can expect a warm reception at the Rajko Matic Stadium where a 50,000 crowd is expected.On the road in Europe last season Liverpool scored seven at Maribor, five in Porto and three in Sevilla. They’ve already chalked up 43 goal attempts in their three group games which, given that two of those fixtures were against PSG and miserly Napoli, shows that the appetite for goals in this team remains as strong as ever.They also know they can’t let up. Halfway through the group phase it is clear that goal difference could be a factor to separate the three big guns in this section.
Liverpool have a five-day break until they take on Fulham so Klopp should start with at least two members of his feared front three with Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi to fall back on if required. Since the start of last season Liverpool have scored at least two goals in 14 of 18 Champions League ties. I expect at least three goals from Liverpool.
