Sadio Mane did what neither Cristiano Ronaldo nor Lionel Messi could achieve with Liverpool winning the Champions League

Sadio Mane scored for Liverpool against Villarreal in the Champions League knockout stage, while Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi couldn’t keep up.

For three whole seasons, the trio Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah confirmed that they would start in one way or another in every match they were ready to participate in.

But then Diogo Jota joined the squad at the start of 2020/21 and with Luis Diaz adding to Jurgen Klopp’s options three months ago the top three in the squad are under threat like never before and their need to consistently perform well is paramount.

With a realistic chance for the Reds to win an unprecedented quad with one trophy already guaranteed and three more in sight, every match can be categorized as a big game at the moment, most recently with their 2-0 win over Villarreal in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals.

While there was a bit of hilarity in the opening goal and the second goal was beautiful despite being surrounded by defenders and already in the penalty area, Salah was able to play a pass across the defense line to Mane and put the ball past Jeronimo Rulli past Villarreal Zakan away from the first goal The important player scored by the number 10 for Liverpool in 2021/22.

The Senegal international broke the tie in a 2-2 draw with Manchester City at Anfield and fired the ball in a 4-0 home win over Arsenal before taking advantage of a defensive blunder by Trevoh Chalobah at Stamford Bridge.

Mane also bagged what could be an invaluable goal in the league second leg for City and scored against Manchester United to put down their bright start.
