Liverpool’s traveling to Red Star Belgrade for the UEFA Champions League group stage fixture tonight should have been a slam dunk for the visitors. After all, they were heavily favored over a side that they had just handled easily at home, only a couple weeks ago.

Maybe Liverpool would have been better had they been place into a group that included the Chicago Red Stars of the NWSL, over Red Star Belgrade. I kid, I kid. Anyway, the Merseyside club will now have to take care of business versus Inter Milan and PSG now if they are to move on to the next round.

Social media was of course social media, weighing in with some funny jokes and also some hot facts here and there. Let’s take a look at some of the better offerings.
