How has Mohamed Salah fared against his old clubs?
Liverpool have drawn AS Roma in the semis, after the Reds cruised past Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City with a 5-1 aggregate victory in the quarter-final.
Meanwhile, Serie A side AS Roma produced a historic comeback as they beat Barcelona 3-0 to qualify on away goals after they had lost the first leg 4-1 at Camp Nou.
The Egyptian spent two seasons at AS Roma, scoring 34 goals and providing 24 assists in 83 games across all competitions.
He was one of the main reasons behind Roma’s qualification for the Champions League this season after guiding them to the second place in the Serie A last season.
Salah has got a good record when it comes to facing former clubs, as the Egyptian faced each of ACF Fiorentina and Chelsea four times after leaving them.
His first game against an old club came in the Serie A 2015/2016 season, when Salah found the net and received his only red card in professional football against Fiorentina, where the Egyptian spent a six-month loan in 2015.
Salah faced Fiorentina again in the same season, guiding Roma to a big 4-1 win, with the Egyptian scoring twice as well as assisting Stephan El Shaarawy’s opener.
His last game against the Florence-based club came last season, however, Salah couldn’t continue his unbeaten record against them, falling to a 2-0 defeat, with Salah playing 68 minutes.
The most recent game was against Chelsea this season, when Mohamed Salah netted Liverpool’s opener when lining up against the Blues for the first time since departing them, however, the Egyptian’s goal was cancelled out by Willian’s late equaliser.
Overall, he faced his former clubs in four encounters, won two, drew once, and lost once. He managed to score four goals, assisted once, and received one red card.
The first leg will be held at Anfield on either April 24 or 25 before the Premier League side travel to play the second leg at Stadio Olimpico on May 1 or 2.
