In Wednesday’s Champions League match against Atletico Madrid, Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah will try to equal a Reds goal-scoring record. And this pre-existing record is one that Steven Gerrard has set. So, after we our football prediction anticipated a 2-1 Reds victory, Salah may soon equal Gerrard’s goalscoring record for Liverpool.
The Egyptian and Liverpool superstar has scored five goals in three Champions League games this 2021-22 season. One of these goals came in Liverpool’s 3-2 triumph over AC Milan, as we showed in the football results.
Salah’s goal against the Rossoneri was his 13th in the Champions League for Liverpool. What’s more, this is a number he has accomplished in just 20 continental appearances.
Salah May Soon Equal Gerrard’s Goalscoring Record for Liverpool
If Salah scores against Atletico Madrid, he would tie Steven Gerrard’s Liverpool record of 14 home goals in Champions League.
Also, Milner would have been attempting to break Gerrard’s assist record in the Europe’s top league. Both men have 12 Champions League assits for Liverpool, but the veteran midfielder is unable to participate due to injury.
Liverpool is five points clear at the top of Group B. And a win would confirm their first-place finish if Porto fail to beat Milan.
