Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool face Red Star Belgrade in Group C of the Champions League at Anfield this evening.
Liverpool look to get back to winning ways after a late goal downed them in Napoli.
The only past contests between these sides – and Liverpool’s only experience of Serbian opposition – came in the second round of the 1973/74 European Cup, Red Star winning both legs 2-1 to reach the quarter-finals, where they would lose to Atletico Madrid.
The Anfield result was Liverpool’s first home loss in UEFA competition; the second did not follow for another 18 years.
The first leg of the Red Star-Liverpool tie, in Belgrade, was played on 24 October 1973 – 45 years to the day before this game.
Match coverage begins at 7.00pm on BT Sport 2 with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
BT Sport will also air Tottenham’s clash with PSV from 5.15pm on BT Sport 3.
