Before the last round of the Champions League group stage, Liverpool won the knockout ticket, with the first place in Group B. In the procedural match this morning, Liverpool defeated AC Milan with a score of 2-1. The two scorers for The Reds are Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi. Meanwhile, the Rossoneri had an honorable goal thanks to Tomori’s goal.

Overcoming AC Milan at the San Siro, coach Jurgen Klopp’s army won all 6 matches in Group B. Liverpool became the first English team in history to win all 6 group stage matches in 1 Champions League campaign.

In this series of matches, The Reds scored 17 goals and conceded only 6 times. Thanks to this extremely impressive performance, coach Jurgen Klopp’s teachers and students are considered as one of the leading candidates for the championship.

Personally, Mo Salah also hit a series of memorable milestones in the win over AC Milan. Specifically, with the tear against the Rossoneri, the Egyptian player scored 7 goals in the Champions League this season. Thus, Salah became the highest scorer in Liverpool history in the Champions League group stage in one campaign.

Up to this point, Salah has scored 20 goals in all competitions. In addition to 7 goals at UCL, the 29-year-old striker also scored 13 goals in the Premier League.

According to statistics, Salah also became the first player to score more than 20 goals per season for The Reds in 5 consecutive campaigns (in all fronts), after Ian Rush. The Liverpool legend has scored more than 20 goals per season for Liverpool in 6 consecutive campaigns, from the 1981-82 season to 1986-87.

Before this season, Salah had scored 44, 27, 23 and 31 goals in the 2017–18, 2018–19, 2019–20 and 2020–21 campaigns. With the current top form and if he is attached to the future with Liverpool, it is only a matter of time before Salah leveled and overthrew Ian Rush’s goalscoring record.
