Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said on the club's website on Monday: "It's a situation where we will go to the fantastic city of Belgrade as a football team to play football".
'Passing the ball wasn't good enough.
The defeat represents a major blow to Jurgen Klopp's side, as most defeats do in fairness, who may now require maximum points from their final two group games to get through to the Champions League knockout stages.

Left-back Andy Robertson, playing nearly as an out-and-out winger after the break, saw a cross deflected on to the top of the crossbar, while Salah finally forced a save out of Milan Borjan, hitting a post with his next effort.
Klopp recognised his initial error at half-time by throwing on Firmino and Joe Gomez at the break.
Last season's runners-up are now top of Group C and one point clear of Napoli at the midway point of the group stage.
Red Star had failed to get a single shot on target at Anfield as they wilted under the Merseyside lights, but tonight they produced a stunning performance that saw Pavkov propel his name on to the world stage.
"He is our player, we love him, and he will play for us a lot of times, but not on Tuesday".
Adam Lallana nearly got Liverpool back in the game moments later but his header was deflected just wide, and Sturridge then fired wide from just inside the box.
PSG are one point behind with Belgrade propping up the table on four points.
