Champions League: Salah equals Gerrard’s record as Bellingham surpasses Mbappe’s

2 months ago 28

Liverpool ace, Mohamed Salah, on Wednesday night equaled a club legend, Steven Gerrard’s record for most Champions League/European Cup goals at Anfield with his strike against AC Milan.

The Egyptian international netted in the 48th minute of the Champions League encounter, leveling the match at 2-2 following an assist from Divock Origi as the Premier League giants eventually won the game 3-2.

The goal was Salah’s 14th in the Champions League at Anfield, going level with Gerrard.

Salah had scored just three Champions League goals in his career before joining Liverpool from AS Roma in 2017.

The 29-year-old now has 26 Champions League goals for Liverpool, with more than half of those coming at Anfield.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund midfielder, Jude Bellingham, surpassed a record held by Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe after scoring in his side’s Champions League 2-1 win over Besiktas on Wednesday.

The 18-year-old opened the scoring for Dortmund before providing an assist for Erling Haaland just before half-time as the Bundesliga side defeated the host.

By scoring against Besiktas, Bellingham, at 18 years, 78 days, broke Mbappe’s record set in March 2017 with Monaco when he was 18 years, 85 days.

Bellingham’s most recent Champions League appearance before Wednesday came in last season’s quarter-final second leg against Manchester City.

He opened the scoring for Dortmund in the first half, before City stormed back with two goals in an eventual 4-2 aggregate win.
