Red Star vs Liverpool | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Liverpool travels to Belgrade in search of a win, a convincing one, which might be crucial for the Reds in the end. From now on, goal-difference will be a very important part of every calculation, which is why guests here have to be 100% focused on this event. Sorry Red Star hasn’t got the quality to stand up, and their goal is probably to score at least once.
Red Star is the last in Group C, with only one point. They won in the domestic championship, against a team called Proleter with 0:2 away from home. Liverpool played a derby, against Arsenal, in which the Reds took only one point, despite having fantastic chances throughout the match, and that especially applies for Virgil Van Dijk. If the Dutch center-back had a little bit more concentration, Klopp and his boys would win this one.
There really isn’t much to say about this team. They are the weakest squad in the whole Champions League, and they don’t have any chances to win this match. Despite being dominant in the domestic championship where they have almost 100% record, Red Star is way below any decent standard when it comes to the Champions League game. What will be their biggest strength in this one, are the fans, because just a few stadiums in the world have this kind of atmosphere. Sometimes they give the players extra motivation, and push them to play above the real limits, but in this case, we believe that they don’t have the chance. A draw against Napoli was just a lucky day for them, and also a consequence of Napoli’s underestimating approach.
The Reds are doing their part of the job for now. They are still undefeated in the Premiership, though, they can’t be entirely happy after the game with Arsenal. We could say without any doubts that Liverpool lost two points in that event, and Jurgen Klopp’s statements after the match were going into that direction. What is extremely strange for this team, who is one of the most potent in the attacking aspect of the play, is that four latest games they played away from home ended with under 2.5 goals. This is the perfect opportunity for them to change that, and believe us when we say that no matter the lineup, Liverpool will be efficient in this clash.
Latest Team News
Red star doesn’t have any specific problems with players coming into this match. On the other side, Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will not play for sure, while Nabi Keita is under a question mark.
Liverpool won 4:0 two weeks ago, and that was pretty routinely. If Sadio Mane used a couple of his chances, the final outcome could have been much higher. Still, Red Star has a positive head-to-head record with two wins, which are dating back in 1974, when they managed to become the first team in the European competitions who defeated the Reds at Anfield.
Odds and Predictions
We really don’t have to tell you who is the favorite here. Liverpool’s win is at 1.16, while Red Star’s triumph is going to multiply your stakes 13 times. Meanwhile, a draw is 7.5.
Red Star vs Liverpool | Top Betting Tip: Liverpool (0-4)
As we said for the first match between the two sides, any lineup of the Reds is much better than the Red Star’s best 11. Also, do have in mind that the fans might motivate the hosts, but be sure that Liverpool likes to play in conditions like this one and that they too might be inspired with the fantastic atmosphere in Belgrade. Goal-difference is something they have to improve, since it might decide the order in the standings at the end. So, our first prediction is Liverpool to win with by two-goal margin. Next, you can try Liverpool over 1.5 HT. The overall efficiency will be high, over 3.5 goals. Final word, Red Star – Liverpool 0:4.
