What Trueform says for Liverpool vs Red Star Belgrade
Liverpool will be determined to get their Champions League campaign back on track when hosting Red Star Belgrade and should prove a class apart at Anfield.
The Reds slipped up when losing 1-0 at Napoli on Matchday 2, but this is a golden opportunity to return to winning ways in Group C.
Their opponents were thrashed 6-1 at PSG last time out in this competition and 23/20 for Jurgen Klopp’s side to romp home by more than three clear goals is our first Liverpool vs Red Star Belgrade prediction.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool got off to a flying start when beating PSG 3-2 on Merseyside, with Daniel Sturridge, James Milner and Roberto Firmino on target in a more convincing victory than the final scoreline suggests.
The Reds then had the misfortune to face Napoli away in between titanic Premier League tussles with Chelsea and Manchester City, so can be excused for being below par in Italy.
Lorenzo Insigne eventually ended Liverpool’s resistance in Naples, but it was a deserved triumph, as Dries Mertens had earlier hit the bar, with Napoli posting 16 goal attempts, compared to four from the Reds.
“The second half was not good enough,” admitted Klopp. “It’s always a bad sign when you have to say your goalkeeper was your best player.”
Liverpool can be ruthless when it comes to overpowering lesser European teams, though, as they showed when thrashing both Maribor and Spartak Moscow 7-0 during last season’s pool stage.
This group could well come down to goal difference, so another clinical display is on the cards here.
A Look At Red Star Belgrade’s Betting Odds
Red Star did incredibly well to come through four qualifying rounds and carried that momentum into an opening 0-0 draw with Napoli in Russia.
However, they had their limitations cruelly exposed when hit for six by PSG, with Neymar bagging a hat-trick at Parc des Princes.
Vladan Milojevic’s side got plenty of men behind the ball in Paris but simply failed to cope with any late runs into the box.
Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Firmino will have taken note of that and also possess the pace and movement to open up Red Star’s static defence.
Let’s add 17/5 for the hosts to be 2-0 up at half-time to our Liverpool vs Red Star Belgrade betting tips.
