Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah matches bizarre Peter Crouch record during Inter Milan clash


Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah matches bizarre Peter Crouch record during Inter Milan clash

Liverpool edge past Inter Milan

Liverpool ran out 2-0 winners in a rowdy San Siro over Inter Milan in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16, despite being second best for much of the encounter.

The home side looked the more likely to score in both halves, and Liverpool weathered sustained pressure in the first 15 minutes of the second 45 minutes as the Serie A champions created plenty of seemingly good opportunities only for the final ball to let them down.

Then, half-time substitute Roberto Firmino opened the scoring, nodding in a header from a corner. From in front of the near post, the Brazilian managed to flick the ball past Samir Handanovic and into the far corner with a delightful finish.

Then, minutes later, Mohamed Salah added his customary goal, and Liverpool’s second, to ensure that Jurgen Klopp’s side head into the second leg at Anfield with a relatively comfortable lead over Inter in a fortnight’s time.

Salah sets new record

In scoring against Inter, Mohamed Salah matched Peter Crouch’s odd Champions League record.

This comes as the Egyptian becomes only the second man to net against both AC and Inter in the same Champions League campaign, following in the footsteps of the Englishman from when he was at Tottenham.

Managing to net against the top two sides in Italy is no mean feat, but given Salah’s form this season, you would back him against just about any defence in world Football.
