LIVERPOOL are in prime position to qualify from Group C and should be red stars at Red Star tonight.
Jurgen Klopp's men head to Belgrade with big guns Napoli and PSG breathing down their necks.
One or both of those sides will drop points in Italy so Liverpool must take advantage by winning away.
Bookies have completely written off Red Star by making Klopp's men no bigger than 1-5 at Ladbrokes.
It's a ridiculous price and makes value difficult to find especially as Liverpool may rest a couple of players and the Serbs have a decent home record.
However, in the Champions League Red Star look out of their depth in this group having scored just one goal and picked up one point (from a 0-0 draw against Napoli) so Liverpool to win to nil could be the best bet at 37-40 at McBookie.
Defensively Klopp has improved his men this season with just five conceded in the Premier League – and keeper Alisson has played his part – but goals have dried up a bit and they've netted 12 fewer than Man City.
I can see a 2-0 or 3-0 victory for the visitors so back Liverpool and under 3.5 goals at 23-20 with boylesports.
Don't pick a first scorer until the line-ups are revealed and Xherdan Shaqiri hasn't travelled for political reasons.
Napoli came within seconds of beating PSG in France with Angel di Maria earning a 2-2 draw with a last-gasp wonder goal.
Neither side can afford to lose tonight – especially if Liverpool triumph in the early kick-off – and that could lead to a thriller. It's a difficult match to call but goals look a no-brainer so back over 2.5 at 1-2 with McBookie or add both to score for a better price.
Group B looks more straightforward with Spurs facing an almost impossible task to catch Inter or Barcelona.
Spurs' blew their chances with a 2-2 draw at PSV but they still want third place and it should be sewn up by beating the Dutch at Wembley.
The Londoners are just 2-5 at McBookie to stake the slightly bigger over 2.5 match goals at 1-2 with Ladbrokes.
Harry Kane is back in top form and I fancy him at 5-2 with McBookie to score first.
Inter were hammered 4-0 in Spain but have been in good form generally and a know a point at home to Barcelona, still without Lionel Messi. would just about take them through. Best bet here could be both to score at 4-6 with William Hill.
In Group A the top two meet as Atletico Madrid aim to avenge a 4-0 thrashing by Borussia Dortmund in Germany. That was a real shocker as the Spaniards don't concede many.
But it will be another tough assignment as Dortmund are flying high at the top of the Bundesliga after six wins and three draws from nine and in the Champions League have scored eight and not conceded. Got to fancy them to notch so take both to score at 17-20 with William Hill.
The other game sees winless pair Monaco and Bruges meet after earlier drawing 1-1 in Belgium. Thierry Henry taking over at Monaco hasn't yet had the desired effect and they sit one off the bottom in Ligue 1 with one win in 11.
Bruges are in better shape and thrashed Oostende 4-0 at the weekend. Back them to win at 12-5 with Betway or draw no bet at 7-5 at Marathonbet.
In Group D Porto are short at 7-20 with Marathonbet to beat Lokomotiv Moscow at home after winning in Russia.
Schalke dominated against Galatasaray in Turkey but couldn't score so had to settle for a 0-0 draw. They've been better in the CL than the Bundesliga so back them to win at 4-7 with bet365.
