Red Star Belgrade blew Champions League Group C wide open and loosened Liverpool's grip on top spot after Milan Pavkov scored a first-half brace in a 2-0 win.

The English club has now lost both of its away games in the group stage, having been beaten 1-0 at Napoli last month, and its fearsome attacking unit again lacked a cutting edge in Belgrade against an opponent Liverpool thrashed 4-0 two weeks ago at Anfield.

"I don't know how many chances, very good chances, we had tonight, but it felt like a lot".

Back then, eastern European teams were genuine contenders for club football's biggest prize - Steaua Bucharest of Romania were European champions in 1986 - and Red Star had some of the world's best players like Robert Prosinecki and Dejan Savicevic.

"Napoli came here and found it tough as well, so it's a tough place to come, but we expected that". However, defeat means they can not really afford to lose either of their two final round-robin matches against PSG and Napoli, who are both impressive sides.

A loss to French champions PSG would leave them facing a nail-biting shoot-out with Napoli and Liverpool midfielder Lallana knows his team have no excuses for their predicament.

Liverpool fans were left angered with Lazar Markovic after he appeared to like the fact that they were stunned by Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday, claims he later denied. Four points from their last two games would be enough to guarantee the Reds' progress to the last 16.

Things turned from bad to worse for the Reds when Pavkov doubled Red Star's lead with a stunning long range strike in the 29th minute.

"Of course, we have to", he said.

After a frustrating opening 15 minutes, Liverpool should have been ahead when Daniel Sturridge found himself free at the back post following a unsafe pass across the box, but the striker could only blaze the ball over the bar from just six yards out. "We believe we can win every game, that's always been the case with us".

The Reds are now third, level on points with second placed Chelsea and just two points behind leaders Manchester City, with all three sides still unbeaten. "It was a slow start all round really, and we gave them far too many opportunities - especially from set-pieces", the No.20 told Liverpoolfc.com. Then more or less straight away they score the second one and then the atmosphere was completely different, you could feel it.

"We have to make sure in Paris we do better".

"If we do, it will be hard as the next game is an away game".

Red Star scored on 50 percent of its shots on frame, finishing with four shots on goal.
