Liverpool rocked by Red Star Belgrade in damaging defeat
Red Star Belgrade 2 Liverpool 0Liverpool have played 200 matches in the European Cup and Champions League but surely few in an atmosphere as wild as this or as meekly. There was also a warm ovation for members of the Red Star team who beat Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield on this day in 1973 when they paraded around the pitch before kick off. Savic was another of those who missed the Anfield meeting and brought a marked improvement to the Red Star team. The home fans were in uproar, Liverpool deflated, and worse followed within minutes for the visitors when the Red Star centre-forward doubled his tally for the evening in stunning fashion. Within minutes of the restart Firmino created a good chance for ManĂŠ that two Red Star defenders managed to scramble clear.
