Liverpool will be preparing for a trip to Italy to meet AC Milan for the 4th time in the history of the UEFA Champions League. While Milan will be searching for their 1st victory over the Reds since Jurgen Klopp’s take over.
On the other hand, Liverpool and Mo Salah will be looking forward to register their names in the history books by breaking some records.
For the first time ever, Liverpool could register their name under the elite teams, who have won all the group games in the history of the competition.
Prior to this, the feat has only been achieved 7 times. Out of which, the English clubs have achieved it 6 times. Thus, Liverpool could join the group of Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal & Manchester City among the English clubs.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich and Ajax could also book their name under this list as they are also just one win away to do so.
Moreover, Liverpool have never won all 3 of their away games in any European competition under the group phase. Thus, winning today’s fixture would mean, it will be the 7th time an English club did so.
If Salah scores for Liverpool today, he will be up for grabbing another Champions League record
Mohamed Salah could become the first player in the history of Liverpool Football Club to score more than 6 goals in the group stage of the European Competition.
Currently, the Egyptian is in line with Roberto Firmino, who did score 6 goals in the 2017/18 campaign.
Moreover, Salah could also become the first Liverpool player to score in 5 group fixtures within the same European campaign.
Meanwhile, Steven Gerrard was the first to score 4, which was previously matched by Bobby and Salah in 2017/18.
The Liverpool winger could also become the 3rd fastest player to score 20 goals across all competition until the mid-season. This would mean that Salah will be just behind the Premier League legend Ian Rush (November 8, 1986) and Roger Hunt (November 25, 1961).
Thus, so far Salah has scored 32 goals for Liverpool in the European competition and he would like to add more to the telly to break Steven Gerrard’s record of 41.
