◼️ The trident formed by Salah, Firmino and Sadio Mané will face the explosive attack of Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Leroy Sané. Will the Reds have an advantage due to the absence of Agüero?
It’s difficult to predict the outcome of the first leg between Liverpool and Manchester City for the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Judging by his exploits in attack this season, the only certainty surrounding the monkey wrench is that the goals will be assured.
For starters, Mohamed Salah has scored 37 times in his debut campaign with Liverpool, quickly becoming the center of a line of attack that has made the team of Jürgen Klopp a fearsome opponent for any opponent.
However, the second season of Pep Guardiola in front of City has shown his dominance of the English league. Even without the injured Sergio Agüero for this Wednesday’s game, he has offensive weapons to get a place in the semifinals.
