Liverpool star Sadio Mane has broken a record set by Rangers manager Steven Gerrard after scoring twice in the Champions League win over Bayern Munich to become the Anfield side’s highest away goal-scorer in the competition.
Mane’s second goal against the Germans was his seventh away from home in the Champions League and took him past the previous high of six, shared by Gerrard and Robert Firminho.
The Senegalese striker’s double also drew him level with Mo Salah in second-place in the list of all-time Champions League scorers for the Reds with 13 – Gerrard heads that list with a fantastic return of 21.
Jurgen Klopp’s side done fantastically well to get past the German giants in the Allianz Arena and book their place in the quarter-finals.
Mane opened the scoring before Joel Matip’s own goal levelled things.
Former Celtic defender Virgil Van Dijk also got on the scoresheet before Mane rounded it off with a diving header in the final five minutes of the impressive win
Nine of Mane’s thirteen goals in the Champions League have come in the knockout phase.
With a list of names like Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Ian Rush behind him in the goalscoring records, it just shows how impressive an achievement Mane’s is.
