Paris – Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah has the opportunity to equal Ruud van Nistelrooy and Thierry Henry’s record when spearheading his team against Real Madrid in the 2021/2022 Champions League final, Sunday (30/5/2022) early morning WIB.

Mohamed Salah has yet again enjoyed a stunning campaign with Liverpool this season. The Egyptian scored 31 goals in 50 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions in the 2021/2022 season.

Eight of the 31 goals scored by Mohamed Salah in the Champions League this season. This means that Salah has scored a total of 33 goals in the Champions League while in Jurgen Klopp’s team.

Currently, there are three players who have scored more goals than Mohamed Salah in the Champions League while playing under the same coach. Who are they?

As reported by Sportmole, Friday (27/5/2022), the three players in question are Lionel Messi, who is in the top position with 43 goals in the Pep Guardiola era. As for Ruud van Nistelrooy and Thierry Hendry both collected 35 goals.

Nistelrooy’s collection of 35 goals was recorded at Manchester United during the Sir Alex Ferguson era. As for Henry, he did it at Arsenal in the era of Arsene Wenger.

Mohamed Salah’s two additional goals in the Champions League final at the Stade de France would see him match Nistelrooy and Henry’s goals. In fact, if he scores three goals, he will immediately jump to second place on the list.

Besides Fede Valverde, Dani Carvajal also made scathing comments. He warned Salah not to be sad when Liverpool ran aground again.

“I don’t know if Salah or Liverpool can get revenge. I understand losing the Champions League final is very painful, so there will be swearing for revenge,” Carvajal told the ABC.

“Hopefully Salah will not be sad if he loses for the second time in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.”
