Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane & Roberto Firmino Break BBC’s UEFA Champions League Record
Liverpool’s in-form trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino continued their goal spree and have broken a UEFA Champions League record set by Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Click through the mini-gallery above to see the most dangerous trios in UCL history.
The Red’s attacking line opened the scoring against AS Roma on Wednesday thanks to an early goal by Mane – his ninth in the competition this season.
In doing so, Liverpool’s trio scored their 29th goal between them in the Champions League this campaign, one more than Real’s BBC netted in 2013/14.
In addition to Mane’s nine strikes, Salah and Firmino both have scored 10 times each.
Back in 2013/14, Ronaldo was Los Blancos’ leading scorer with 17 strikes – still a competition record, while Benzema scored six and Bale netted five.
The two trios will meet each other face-to-face in the 2017/18 Champions League final in Kyiv after Liverpool advanced 7-6 on aggregate despite losing 4-2 to Roma in the return leg.
It will be Real’s fourth final in five years and their third in a row, while Liverpool booked their first final ticket since 2007.
