Milan Pavkov was the star of the evening, he scored two goals, he made the most expensive defensive player in the world Virgil van Dijk look like an amateur.
Red Star, after four games in the group, in the competition against Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, and Napoli, has fantastic four points, no goals in their net in front of their magical fans, they have a magical power of "Marakana" which "swallowed" the six-time finalist of the Champions League.
The incredible victory of Red and Whites, for the club almanacs, for history.
Pavkov was brilliant, he will remember this night for as long as he lives. Red Star gave 300.000 euros for him to bring him from Radnicki, and he gave blood, sweat, and tears to be the starter, he gave two goals to the most expensive goalkeeper in the history of football, he tied the most expensive defensive player in history into a knot.
Champions League, 4th round
Red Star - Liverpool 2:0
RED STAR: Borjan - Stojkovic (Goveljic from 59th min), Savic, Degenek, Rodic - Jovancic, Krsticic (Jovicic from 73rd minute) - Srnic, Ben, Marin - Pavkov.
Liverpool: Alisson - Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Lallana, Wijnaldum, Salah, Sturridge, Mane.
Take a look at the goals:
Red Star looked like that they learned the lesson from the defeats from Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool. The players rushed with all force at the guests, as if they are playing in the Premier League, and not Liverpool.
Red and Whites confused the Liverpool players with pressing, and it lasted for good 20 minutes.
Then there was Pavkov!
The inspired attacker broke the Liverpool defense, he "bowed down" for 1:0, Alisson didn't have the time to react.
The noise didn't end after the goal, the euphoria could be cut with a knife, Red Star was leading against Liverpool which is an incredible result on its own, and how to describe the second goal, that burst of energy which erupted when the player put the ball in the back of the goal from 20 meters.
Everything was perfect, the night which will be remembered ended with the song from Delije (Red Star supporters).
Well done, Red Star!
