Mohamed Salah could achieve rare scoring feat against Real Madrid

Mohamed Salah could join an exclusive Liverpool club if he scores against Real Madrid in Tuesday night's Champions League clash.

Just four players have scored in four consecutive European appearances for Liverpool, with Steven Gerrard the last one to achieve this during the 2007/8 season. 

The former captain achieved this twice, while Roger Hunt, Robbie Fowler, and Djibril Cisse are the other three. 

The Egyptian has so far scored 25 goals in 43 Champions League matches for the Reds, and is enjoying an impressive scoring campaign with 26 so far in all competitions. 

Salah will be eager to face the Spanish giants, whom the Reds faced during the 2018 finals only for his night to be cut short by an injury from Sergio Ramos, which earned condemnation from various quarters. 

Here are quick facts ahead of the clash; 

  • Liverpool have met Real six times previously, winning three and losing three
  • In their European history, the Reds have progressed on 19 of the 25 occasions they have reached the quarter-finals
  • Jürgen Klopp has faced Los Blancos seven times during his managerial career - winning three, drawing one, and losing three
