Liverpool vs Red Star Belgrade | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Liverpool has an opportunity to rest some players in this match and grab an easy win. However, the Reds have to improve their goal difference, since they lost in Naples. Red Star is the worst team in this competition, and don’t be fooled with that draw against Napoli in Belgrade; it was mostly because the Italians underestimated the Serbian champion.
Liverpool had a tough game in Huddersfield which they won, 0:1. Red Star defeated their opponents in the Serbian league, Rad with 3:1. Coming into this event, the hosts are tying the second place in Group C with three points, same as PSG. But the Parisians have a much better goal difference, as they humiliated Red Star at home. The Serbs are last in the group with only one point.
Jurgen Klopp decided to spare some players from efforts against the Terriers, who showed one hell of resistance this Saturday. But eventually, the Reds won that clash with Mo Salah scoring the only goal. The Egyptian superstar revealed that he didn’t forget how to put the ball into the net, and that he still has magic in his legs. His goalscoring comeback was equally important for Klopp as three points won away from home. Now, Liverpool played four straight games with under 2.5 goals, but that doesn’t mean anything in this case, because they have an opponent whose qualities are not enough to compete at this level. We expect a lot of changes in Liverpool’s lineup, but the tactics will stay the same, since the home team needs to improve the goal-difference.
Red Star Belgrade
Things couldn’t be worse for the Serbian champion. They are under the investigation that one of their high officials wanted to fix bet on their loss against PSG with five or more goals difference. At the moment, the French authorities and UEFA opened investigations, which could lead to some catastrophic consequences for them if the allegations come up to be true. Meanwhile, Red Star got beaten in Paris, 6:1, and that was yet the best scenario for them. PSG could score at least the same number of goals, if it weren’t for the excellent goalkeeper Borjan. The statistic you see regarding their domestic championship is not legit and you mustn’t rely upon it. Red Star is said to be very favorized back home, and that their rivals often have unfair treatment from the referees.
Latest Team News
Klopp said that Sadio Mane is ready to play, but we do not believe that the Senegalese will show up for this match. Also, the same situation is with Jordan Henderson. Naby Keita is ruled out, as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, whose absence is old news. We do not have any pieces of information about the injuries or suspensions among the Red Star players.
Red Star is a club of rich history. You have to know that. They were once a European and world champions, and during their glory days, they managed to defeat Liverpool twice. Those matches are, in fact, the only two who were ever played between the two sides. Back in 1974, the Serbs won both at Anfield and in Belgrade with the same results, 2:1. They were one of the first teams who managed to defeat the Reds at home in the European competitions.
Odds and Predictions
There isn’t too much to be said about the odds. Liverpool’s win is 1.04. A draw is 13, while Red Star’s victory is 34.
