What Would Champions League Elimination Mean For Premier League Title Challengers?

What Would Champions League Elimination Mean For Premier League Title Challengers?

Liverpool's hopes of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League were dealt a significant blow as they slumped to a disappointing 2-0 defeat away to Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday evening. It was reported that a dispute between Buvač and Klopp was the reason behind his decision to leave, but it remains unclear.

It was only the third time this season they have conceded more than one goal, but the second occasion in the Champions League and the first time since October 2014 they had conceded more than once in the first half of a Champions League game.

Then Pavkov, Red Star's talented young striker, went off. Paris Saint-Germain have five points, and Red Star sit bottom of the group with four points.

As a result Firmino believes the Merseysiders are well placed to push City all the way as they seek a first league title since 1990.

And it has ultimately left Liverpool with real work to do in their final games away to PSG and at home to Napoli.

They are unbeaten in nine (W8 D1), but have struggled on both occasions that they've stepped up in class in the Champions League . Kuipers , 45, is an experienced UEFA referee and has been part of the organization's "Elite" group since 2009.

"It was a game we lost and that happened not 20 times so far". Napoli found it tough when they came here and we knew it was going to be a tough place to come. Four points from their last two games would be enough to guarantee the Reds' progress to the last 16.

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.

Adam Lallana nearly got Liverpool back in the game moments later but his header was deflected just wide, and Sturridge then fired wide from just inside the box.

The side was hamstrung by the inability of that threesome to win the ball - they also conspired to lose it on a number of occasions, notably Milner for the second Red Star goal.

The Serbian side scored twice in the first half to give Klopp plenty to talk about at the break but the Liverpool manager was unable to motivate his players to come back and cause any late drama at the Stadion Rajko Mitic. The Reds remain with their Champions League fate in their own hands, now in second place. It could yet be a moment that they look back on and see as a turning point in terms of giving them the shock they need to rediscover their best form, but supporters are right to be slightly concerned after what they saw in Belgrade tonight.
