Records Ronaldo & Salah Have Broken This Season

African superstar Mohamed Salah and five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo will go head-to-head in tonight’s UEFA Champions League final. Here are the most impressive records the two protagonists have broken this season.

Click through the gallery to see records Salah and Ronaldo have broken this season.

Both players currently sit on 44 strikes in the 2017/18 campaign in all competitions, with only FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi having scored more – the Argentine sits on 45 goals.

However, Salah has taken the Premier League by storm, and he has not only written his name in the history books of the English top flight but also in the Champions League.

The Egyptian currently sits on 10 strikes in this year’s UCL, breaking the previous record for the best campaign of an African by Samuel Eto’o, who netted eight times for Inter in 2010/11.

Including Liverpool’s qualifying round against TSG Hoffenheim, Salah’s tally even stands at 11 UCL goals in 2017/18, which is a new record by a Liverpool player in European competitions. He shares this milestone previously held by Dean Saunders, who scored nine times in 1991/92, with his teammate Roberto Firmino.

Salah also broke the record for most goals in a 38-game Premier League campaign and you can find more milestones the African reached in 2017/18 in the gallery.

Ronaldo, meanwhile, has also continued his annual record hunt this season. He was once again particularly prolific in the Champions League, becoming the first player to score in all six group stage games.

His record run of scoring in successive games, which started in last season’s UCL final victory over Juventus, stretched to 11 games before he drew a blank against Bayern Munich in the semi-final.

The Portuguese struck three goals over the two quarter-final legs in Real’s 4-3 aggregate win over Juventus, becoming the player with most UCL goals against a single opponent.
