Being ready for that should include Shaqiri, who has the skill to make sure Liverpool come away from the game with three points.

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino believes Roberto Firmino should be dropped by Liverpool. Joel Matip gets the nod in central defence and Adam Lallana also starts.

The result left Liverpool on six points from four games and facing a tricky path to the knockout stages after the setback in the cauldron of Red Star's Rajko Mitic stadium. Can Jurgen Klopp's side maintain their grip at the top of Group C? 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.

This will be Liverpool's first away game against Red Star in European competition since October 1973, when they lost 2-1 in the first leg of a Last 16 tie in the European Cup/Champions League. As ever, you can watch all the action Live & Exclusive via beIN SPORTS CONNECT.

Jurgen Klopp's men certainly had their chances, with Daniel Sturridge firing over early on and Mohamed Salah striking the post deep into the second-half, and now face a much more hard task to finish top of their group.

The Reds now occupy top spot in their Champions League group and will want to replicate their 4-0 result in the last meeting between the two sides.

The Reds let their lead slip at Arsenal on Saturday in the Premier League as they drew 1-1 in north London.

The tensions date back to the Balkan War, where Serbian forces initiated a conflict against ethnic minorities across Yugoslavia; Shaqiri himself was born in Kosovo.

"I took a lot of times in my life a decision about a playing squad, a travel squad, and so far the player's always accepted it", he told a news conference.

Clyney is ill and will not be involved, but Dejan and Naby are back in the travelling squad.

The outstanding Borjan again denied Salah from close range in the 82nd minute as Liverpool piled on the pressure but the visitors could not find a way through Red Star's packed and well-organised defence.
