The Serbian football champions - who in 1991 won the European Champions Cup, rebranded a year later to the Champions League - opened their group stage campaign this season with a draw (0-0) against Italy's vice-champions Napoli in Belgrade, but then suffered two crushing defeats abroad: 6-1 against PSG in Paris, and 4-0 in Liverpool, last season's CL finalist.

Red Star currently have 4 points at the bottom of Group C, which is led by Liverpool and Napoli with 6, and PSG with 5 points.
