We study the behavior of second-order degenerate elliptic systems in divergence form with random coefficients which are stationary and ergodic. Assuming moment bounds like Chiarini and Deuschel [Arxiv preprint 1410.4483, 2014] on the coefficient field a and its inverse, we prove an intrinsic large-scale C1-regularity estimate for a-harmonic functions and obtain a first-order Liouville theorem for subquadratic a-harmonic functions.
