Historical: Salah hat-trick in six minutes, the fastest in the Champions League | VIDEO

Liverpool was a steamroller this Wednesday and ruthlessly prevailed 7-1 at rangers in Scotland for the fourth day of group A of the Champions League. The great figure of the ‘Reds’ win was Mohammed Salahwho silenced critics with a hat-trick in six minutes and set a new record: the fastest hat-trick in the history of the European competition.

Despite having dominance and better chances, Liverpool started behind on the scoreboard, as usual this season, with a powerful shot from the edge of the area low to the left post.

Firmino took advantage of a corner at the near post to tie the game with which it went to rest. The Brazilian then took advantage of a good pass from Joe Gomez into the area to get ahead of the defense and turn the score around. And with a magnificent backheel, he assisted Núñez to take distance on the scoreboard.

The Uruguayan was substituted just after his goal, giving entrance to Salahwho scored the fastest hat-trick in Champions League history in exactly 6 minutes and 12 seconds.

Liverpool, who suffer from irregular results, a fragile defense and a lack of goals from their stars, shook off those problems against a weaker opposition, but morale should be high before Sunday’s difficult championship game against Manchester City, at Anfield.

Although they are not yet mathematically classified for the round of 16, the six point difference with Ajax with two games to go leave the ‘Reds’ in a very good position, who will visit the Dutch at the end of October and will host Napoli in the last day.
