Max Woltman's clinical finish early in the first half was the difference in an entertaining encounter at the Kirkby Academy.
Harvey Davies made sure of the three points with a terrific performance in the young Reds' goal as they'll now look to build on the victory when they travel to FC Porto later this month in Group B.
The Reds survived late attempts from substitutes Leonardo Rossi and Alesi to ensure it was a successful afternoon in matchday one.
Unused substitutes: Mrozek, Norris, Frauendorf, Clark.
