Sadio Mane has been in terrific form this season. The Liverpool winger has scored an impressive 19 goals in all competitions this season. Mane inspired his country Senegal to their first ever title after helping them win the Africa Cup of Nations. Mane also helped his country qualify for the World Cup in a crunch World Cup Qualifier beating Egypt.
Mane’s insane form this season has made him as important as Liverpool’s star striker Mohammed Salah. The two have been extremely important for Liverpool this season and might well lead them to a historical Champions League and Premier League triumph.
Sadio Mane got the better of his club teammate Mohammed Salah on both occasions when the two met on International Duty. Mane’s Senegal beat Salah’s Egypt in the AFCON Final and then again beat them in the World Cup Qualifiers to qualify for the World Cup.
Mane’s incredible goal scoring form has also continued in the Champions League. Mane’s goal against Benfica has helped him equal an impressive record held by Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
The strike against Benfica makes Sadio Mane the player with most goals in the Champions League knockout stages in the last 5 years, leveled with Cristiano Ronaldo.
Sadio Mane has now scored an impressive 13 Champions League knockout goals since 2017, a record held by Cristiano Ronaldo. Mane just needs one more goal in the Semi Finals against Villarreal to break Ronaldo’s record of most knockout goals in the Champions League since 2017.
Scoring constantly in the knockouts shows the ability of Sadio Mane to consistently step up when his team needs him the most. Liverpool face Villarreal in the first leg of their Champions League Semi Final on Wednesday, and Sadio Mane would be looking to once again find the back of the net for Jurgen Klopp’s side and break Ronaldo’s record.
