What Trueform says for Red Star Belgrade vs Liverpool
We completed a trio of successful tips as Liverpool got their Champions League campaign back on track with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Red Star Belgrade at Anfield.
It meant our predictions of Liverpool -3 goals at 5/4, Liverpool to win 4-0, 5-0 or 6-0 at 12/5 and Liverpool to lead 2-0 at HT at 17/5 rewarded punters.
The Serbian champions simply had no answer to the relentless Reds, who can confirm their superiority by triumphing 3-0 in the return match, which is our first Red Star Belgrade vs Liverpool prediction at odds of 13/2.
A Look At Red Star Belgrade’s Betting Odds
After a creditable goalless draw at home to Napoli, Red Star have had their limitations well and truly exposed following heavy losses away to PSG and Liverpool.
Neymar netted a hat-trick as the French champions cruised to a 6-1 win in Paris, while Mohamed Salah bagged a brace in Liverpool’s thumping triumph at Anfield on Matchday 3.
Midfielder Branko Jovicic said: “We played against a very strong team; we played better than in Paris but managed to concede naive goals. Especially the second one, just before half-time.
“Nevertheless, we displayed our good side as well in this tough match. I hope we will play better in subsequent matches and that, with time, Red Star will have its own place in the Champions League.”
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Defeat by Napoli on Matchday 2 made the visit of Red Star to Anfield a must-win game for Liverpool in the battle with the Italians and PSG for the qualifying spots.
Liverpool’s class told as Salah made history by reaching 50 goals for the club in the least number of games.
The Egyptian hit his double to make the milestone in just 65 appearances, easily eclipsing the record held by Albert Stubbins (77 games).
Roberto Firmino continued his fine scoring record in the competition with the opener in the 20th minute before Salah netted his first just before half-time and then scored a penalty shortly after the break.
A second spot-kick was missed by Sadio Mane but the Senegal forward made amends moments later to net Liverpool’s fourth.
The result put Liverpool on top of Group C after the other game between PSG and Napoli ended in a 2-2 draw, but Jurgen Klopp will know two wins against Red Star are essential if the Reds are to advance.
He said: “This group obviously stays exciting until the end; that was, I thought, pretty clear immediately after the draw.
“But you cannot do more than win your own games, and then the situation changes in your favour.”
The return match may be a touch tighter early on, with the Reds being more cautious on the road, so 5/2 for them to lead just 1-0 at half-time is added to our Red Star Belgrade vs Liverpool betting tips.
