Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool would have known that they were going to receive a hostile reception upon arriving at the Rajko Mitić Stadium.
However, the Premier League side wouldn’t have expected such a choreographed welcome.
Prior to kick off, the vocal Red Star fans song in unison “F*ck you, Liverpool”.

Red Star Belgrade vs Liverpool
While Liverpool are looking to briefly extend their advantage at the top of Group C, the Reds could not have got off to a worse start.
Two goals from Milan Pavkov before the 30-minute mark sees the host take a surprise lead against last years Champions League finalists.
Goal. The home side score a second.

With Napoli hosting PSG later this evening, Liverpool could be very easily dethroned at the top of Group C.
The Italian side sit just a single point behind Klopp’s side, while the defending Ligue 1 champions find themselves two points behind.
Looking to pick up their first win of the competition, the lively home support will undoubtedly be as vocal in the second half.
A hostile atmosphere
With the Serbian crowd known for their lively receptions, they’re certainly out doing themselves tonight.
