Champions League final: Mohamed Salah vs Cristiano Ronaldo for Europe's top prize and Ballon d'Or

That is to say, we’ll know that Liverpool and Real Madrid will be the finalists of the 2017/18 Champions League.

Besides, the last thing anyone wants is a Roma v Bayern Munich final…


So many questions from Liverpool’s epic win over Roma on Tuesday night.

Questions like: How is it possible to walk away after a 5-2 win in the first leg of a Champions League semi-final and feel a little, well, disappointed?

And how often have you ever said “I think they need a sixth here, just to make sure”.

And when did you ever, like ever, think that an injury to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain might actually scupper England’s World Cup chances?


So it’s Salah v Ronaldo in the battle for this year’s Ballon d’Or then?

Quite possibly.

It may well come down to who actually wins the Champion League this season but even if Liverpool don’t win it, Salah’s performances this year have certainly put him in the shop window for a move to one of Europe’s big clubs in the summer.


Those five goals Roma conceded made it 17 that they’ve shipped away from home in the Champions League this season.

But how many have they conceded at home?

Answer: 0


Yes, Mo Salah has garnered all the plaudits yet again as he took his tally to 43 goals this season but if you’re wearing a hat then take it off and doff it in the general direction of James Milner.

The former England man weighed in with another assist and now has a record eight in this season’s Champions League.

Yorkshire’s finest says he won’t come out of international retirement to take a place in Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad but who would you rather have, him or Jake Livermore?


Another Real Madrid game and another very dodgy game for goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

And another game where David de Gea’s value increases without him lifting so much as his little finger.
