Reds to Star in Belgrade

Liverpool can outclass Red Star Belgrade again in the Champions League on Tuesday, while Napoli look a value bet against PSG.

Liverpool to win both halves v Red Star Belgrade @ 13/10

Liverpool outclassed the Serbs at Anfield a fortnight ago and can do so again here.

Yes, Red Star did hold Napoli on home soil but the Italians dominated that game, failing to score despite having 20 shots and 74 per cent of possession. Liverpool are unlikely to be so profligate and backing them to win both halves looks decent business at odds-against.

They managed this easily at Anfield, winning both halves by two clear goals, while PSG also won this bet in this competition.

In such a tight group, Liverpool, who have Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson available again, need to be ruthless and should be.

Filip Stojkovic to be carded in Red Star v Liverpool @ 39/20

The Red Star right-back has been booked in five of his side’s 11 European matches so far this season, including in the reverse fixture at Anfield when the Serbs had five men carded.

With card-happy official Antonio Mateu Lahoz taking charge, Stojkovic looks a prime candidate to pick up another, especially given he’s likely to be up against the in-form Sadio Mane, who caused him all sorts of problems two weeks ago, not to mention full-back Andy Robertson.

For those after a bigger price, Stojkovic is 11/1 to be the first player carded – he had this ‘honour’ at Anfield and also away at PSG.

Napoli to beat Paris Saint-Germain @ 19/10

Under Carlo Ancelotti, Napoli have won six of their seven home games (drawing the other), keeping four clean sheets in the process. Those results include a 1-0 victory over Liverpool.

Two weeks ago, the Italians drew 2-2 in Paris, a result which really puts PSG under some pressure in what is a tightly-contested group. That’s not something they’ve dealt with particularly well in recent years in this competition.

Defender Marquinhos says PSG “have to win” and if they focus too much on attack, Napoli are more than capable of picking them off.

The hosts simply look too big and warrant support at the price.
