In the Group A match on Wednesday, Liverpool thrashed Scottish team Rangers 7-1 at home thanks to a record-breaking hat-trick from Salah in the second half.
Liverpool has been having trouble since the start of the season, but they were on fire when they had a chance to go to the competition’s knockout round.
Rangers took an early lead thanks to a goal from Scott Arfield, but Roberto Firmino equalized seven minutes later as the first half ended 1-1.
Ten minutes into the second half, Roberto Firmino added a second goal to extend Liverpool’s lead as he maintained his remarkable goal-scoring run.
Darwin Nez scored the third goal for the visitors in the game before Salah, who replaced the other in the 68th minute, scored in the 75th, 80th, and 81st minutes in quick succession to complete a six-minute, 12-second hat-trick.
It is the earliest hat-trick in the history of the UEFA Champions League history.
Since joining Liverpool in the summer, Néez’s goal was his first for the club in a competition in Europe.
Liverpool is currently in second place in Group A, trailing Napoli (12 points), who defeated Ajax 4-2 earlier in the day to advance to the knockout round, by three points.
Ajax is now third in the group with three points; if Liverpool wins or draws their final two games, Ajax will be eliminated from the competition.
