During Liverpool’s Champions League match against Real Madrid on Tuesday, Mohamed Salah needed only 14 minutes to break two Liverpool records.
Darwin Nunez’s outrageous flick and Thibaut Courtois’ gaffe, which allowed Salah to score a tap-in, gave Liverpool the lead in the 5-2 loss to Real Madrid.
Salah assisted Nunez’s goal, giving him 13 assists in the Champions League, more than any other player in the club’s illustrious history. Furthermore, the Egyptian’s goal was his 42nd of the season for Liverpool, breaking Steven Gerrard’s record.
Salah’s record does not end there. He now has 44 goals in the Champions League, which ties him with Didier Drogba for the most by an African player. Salah is confident of surpassing the Chelsea legend sooner rather than later.
Salah, 30, has now scored 19 goals this season, with eight of them coming in the Champions League. Nunez, 23, is also having a strong European season, scoring four goals.
