    Marega on the brink

    Moussa Marega is on the brink of joining an elite group of Champions League players.

    The Mali international has been in sublime form in Europe’s premier club competition, having netted in his last six successive matches in this season’s UCL.

    Liverpool next?

    Galatasaray (twice), Lokomotiv Moscow (twice), Schalke and AS Roma have all been beaten by 27-year-old in recent months, and Liverpool are next in line.

    If Marega scores at Anfield on Tuesday, he’ll become only the fourth player to score in seven consecutive UCL games. Here are the other four…

    Ruud van Nistelrooy

    The Dutchman held the record for scoring in consecutive Premier League games for 13 years before being eclipsed by Jamie Vardy during Leicester City’s miraculous title-winning campaign in 2015-16.

    When he was hot, he was very hot, and also racked up the goals in the UCL too. He was the first player to score in six successive Champions League games, and also scored nine in a row between September 2002 and April 2003.

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    CR7 is another player—like van Nistlerooy—who’s racked up the goals in devastating fashion in the Champions League.

    The Real Madrid great scored in eight games in a row in the 2013-14 season—coming close to van Nistlerooy’s record—and currently tops the all-time UCL scoring charts with a whopping 124 goals for Manchester United, Los Blancos, and Juventus.

    Could he add another European title—his sixth—with the Old Lady this season?

    Edinson Cavani

    After becoming the fifth player to score in six consecutive matches in the UCL, Cavani made it seven in a row in October 2017.

    El Matador, with an assist from Kylian Mbappe, netted against Anderlecht to extend his fantastic goalscoring run after previously netting against Celtic, Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Ludogorets and Arsenal.

    The Uruguay international scored two in seven before PSG’s elimination at the hands of Manchester United this term.
