The night of the Champions League match against Midtjylland had a very special meaning for Liverpool. This Tuesday, the club reached 10,000 goals in all competitions against Midtjylland, as reported by the club.
The scorer of the historic goal was Portugal's Diogo Jota, with a 1-0 win in a match that ended 2-0 after Salah extended the lead with a penalty in extra time.
