Mohamed Salah - Liverpool

Liverpool booked their place in the Champions League last 16 after earning a hard-fought 2-0 win at RB Salzburg on Tuesday night.

Jurgen Klopp’s men just had to avoid defeat in Austria to progress and after a tough opening period they cruised through after two goals in as many minutes from Naby Keita and Mo Salah.

Keita headed home a teasing Sadio Mane cross in the 57th minute and just a minute later Salah curled home a lovely strike from 20 yards to seal the win.

The Reds qualify top of the group, with Napoli also through after they thrashed Genk 4-0.

Cristiano Ronaldo Is Now The 5th Highest Goalscorer In Football History

Published

on

Cristiano Ronaldo is now the fifth highest goal scorer in the history of football.

The Juventus star has overtaken Gerd Muller on the top goalscorers in football history list, with the Portuguese beating the Germany legend to fifth position after his goal scoring run for Juventus.

On Sunday night, the Portuguese superstar scored twice to secure a 2-1 win against Parma in Serie A. He’s now netted 18 times already this season – not bad for a 34-year-old.

The Portuguese grabbed a cool brace, scoring in each half of the game to open a four-point gap with close league challengers Inter.

Ronaldo also increased his tally to 16 goals in Serie A, becoming the only player in the top five European leagues to score at least 15 goals in each of the last 14 campaigns.

The feat means the former Man United talisman has now reached another significant landmark of his glistering trophy-laden career.

At 34, Ronaldo with a goal per game ratio of 0.72 has now scored staggering 736 goals in 1028 games at the top level.

Hungarian icon Ferenc Puskas has 747 goals behind Selecao legend Pele who has 767. It seems Ronaldo may overtake both legends should his goal-scoring form continue this season.

Romario is the second highest goalscorer in history with 772, while Czech-Austrian legend Josef Bican is the most prolific goal-scorer with 805 goals.

Here are top goalscorers in history according to Rec.Sport.Soccer Statistics Foundation (RSSSF)

1. Josef Bica: 805 goals

2. Romario: 772 goals

3. Pele: 767 goals

4. Ferenc Puskas: 747 goals

5: Cristiano Ronaldo: 736 goals

Crystal Palace Hit Back To Deny Man City After Late Aguero Double

Published

on

A late own goal by Fernandinho denied Manchester City a comeback win over Crystal Palace after a 2-2 draw at The Etihad.

Cenk Tosun marked his full debut with a goal as Palace took a shock lead with their first attempt on goal in the 39th minute.

City saw a penalty decision rightly overturned by VAR after an accidental handball by Jairo Riedewald, but the home side drew level with eight minutes to go when Gabriel Jesus’ cross was well tucked away by Sergio Aguero.

And the match was turned on its head five minutes later when Bernard Mendy’s superb centre was met by a fine header from Aguero.

The drama was not over there though and Palace grabbed a leveller in the 90th minute when Wilfried Zaha powered past John Stones and his cross was turned into his own net by Fernandinho.
