Liverpool not only sit one point off their domestic league top spot, but will also be looking to take the next step after advancing all the way to last year’s Champions League final. There, they would fall to Real Madrid by a score of 3-1 after prolific goal scorer Mo Salah was forced to leave with an injury after only 31 minutes of play, as Sports Bible recounted.
“Mentally, it was very, very bad. Especially when I got substituted, I went to the dressing room and was just crying because I felt like the Champions League was over,” Salah recently told Bleacher Report. “I think it still hurts until now, because you didn’t win it.”
