Champions League – 5 of the most shocking defeats for English clubs ▷ News Ghana


Following Liverpool's surprising defeat on Tuesday to the Red Star in Belgrade, we remember 5 of the most shocking losses for English clubs.

Spartak Moscow 4 – 1 Arsenal (November 2000)

Traveling to Russia or Ukraine at sub-zero temperatures often proves banana skin for any team.

This was exactly the case when the Gunners faced Spartak in November.

Sylvinho received the visitors to start a flight with a second minute goal but the Russian side fought back with the goals of Marcao (2), Robson and Titov.

Maccabi Haifa 3-0 Manchester United (October 2002)

United fans may say that almost did not count with Sir Alex Ferguson resting some key players.

With the expression of accreditation, the manager preferred the trip to Israel.

Still, the starting line up included Ola Solskjaer, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, Gary and Phil Neville.

The other choice goalkeeper, Ricardo, was most guilty after failing to deal with 2 long-term strikes and conceding a penalty.

Liverpool 0-1 AK Graz (August 2004)

Who can ever forget the famous night in Istanbul?

Most foot fans remember the great escape that night but there were a few others on the way.

The Reds' battles against Olympiacos were well documented but few would remember the loss to the AK Graz.

Liverpool entered the second leg against the Austrian side with goal 2 buffer and were guilty of complacency.

Mario Tokik scored the opener for Graz in the second half and another 1 goal was taking the game into extra time and nerve end for the reds.

Copenhagen 1-0 Manchester United – (November 2006)

It was the first time in Copenhagen qualifying for the Champions League group stages and few would have given them a chance against the Red Devils.

Before the game, they were goalless and winless but all that changed thanks to a second half strike by Marcus Albeck.

United will redeem itself by joining the team in the end.

Basel II – Basel II (September 2013)

The side of the M & N and Mourinho was supposed to take over the house in front of the Swiss team at Stamford Bridge.

Oskar opened the scoring for the hosts and everything seemed to be on track to a home win until Basel's equalizer – Mohammed Salah announced himself as he bent his shot past Peter.

Marco Streller gave Basel a shock advantage when he came home from Pina.
