Liverpool winger, Mohamed Salah, has equalled a Champions League mark achieved by Ex-Barcelona striker, Samuel Eto’o, by scoring against Real Madrid on Tuesday.
The Reds were already two goals down, thanks to Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio, when Salah pulled one back in the 51st minute.
Although VAR checked for a possible offside, the goal was allowed to stand, giving Jurgen Klopp’s men an important away goal.
It also ensured that Salah continued a remarkable run of finding the net on 27 occasions for Jurgen Klopp’s side in all competitions in the 2020-21 campaign.
The 28-year-old has now scored 10 goals in the Champions League knockout phase, just like Eto’o during his playing days with Barcelona and Inter Milan.
Salah is two goals shy away from Senegal’s Sadio Mane, while he is closing in on Didier Drogba’s record as the highest-scoring African in the Champions League’s knock-out stages.
Ex-Chelsea striker, Drogba boasts of 14 goals.
