Salah Backed To Match Rush’s Record In Champions League Final

Mohamed Salah has been supported into odds-on to bag his 45th goal of the season when Liverpool face Real Madrid in Saturday’s Champions League Final.

The Egyptian has already been backed into 20/21 from Even money to score in 90 minutes and is 9/2 to score two or more in normal time just as he did in the semi-final first leg.

This season’s PFA Player of the Year needs a hat-trick to match the record haul of 47 goals in a season for a Liverpool player, set by Kop legend Ian Rush in 1983/84 when the Reds finished the season by beating Roma in the European Cup Final.

He is 18/1 to grab the treble needed to match Rush’s tally, and 33/1 to go one better and bag himself another goalscoring record in his first season at the club.

Real Madrid are 4/6 favourites to get their hands on the trophy for the third consecutive year, with Liverpool 6/5 to secure their sixth success in the competition. Klopp’s men are 14/1 to emulate the last Liverpool side to beat Real Madrid in the final by winning 1-0.
