The Liverpool star's close-range finish against Manchester City eclipsed the Real Madrid man's overhead kick in the public vote

Mo Salah’s chipped finish for Liverpool against Manchester City has been named the UEFA Champions League Goal of the Week, presented by Nissan!

The Egypt star’s close-range finish edged Cristiano Ronaldo’s overhead-kick against Juventus in the public vote, taking the award for the pick of the strikes from the quarter-finals.

Salah’s goal earned Liverpool a 2-1 victory in Manchester to confirm their place in the final four, while Ronaldo’s arrived during a 3-0 first-leg win in Turin.

Salah’s team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was also up for the accolade after his ferocious strike in the first-leg against City, while Barcelona’s Luis Suarez was nominated for his neat finish versus Roma.

Juventus’s Mario Mandzukic rounded off the nominations with a fine header that very nearly inspired one of the greatest comebacks in UEFA Champions League history.
