LIVERPOOL FC VS RED STAR BELGRADE
| Wednesday, October 24th |
Champions League | Anfield
8PM BST/3PM EDT
After a stumble on the road against Napoli last time out, Liverpool look to take advantage against the relative minnow of the group (albeit one with a European Cup to their name), Red Star Belgrade. The Reds will be looking to take maximum points in the back-to-back matches against the Serbian outfit, which should put them in good stead for advancement out of the “Group of Death.” Hopefully Napoli and PSG can help out with a couple of draws. Regardless of action in the other match, or the daunting remaining fixtures in the group, Liverpool need to take maximum points tonight. A “coming out party” for our struggling attacking trio, similar to the 7-0 defenestration of Maribor in the same fixture last year, would certainly be welcomed.
