It’s fair to say that Sadio’s picking up form at exactly the right time. He’s doing in the league and the Champions League (as he did last season).
His record in the Champions League last season was vital. Only one player in the history of the competition has scored a higher percentage of his goals in the knockout stages than Mané’s 69%: Ivica Olic, who scored seven of his 10 goals in the knockout stages. With Porto up next, where he scored a hat-trick last season, he’ll surely be looking to continue this impressive record in the competition.
We’ve made a compilation video of his goals so far this season. His pace, strength, movement & range of finishes is clear to see.
What’s astonishing is his chance conversion. Check out this comparison to Salah’s season so far:
All this from a man whom many have previously described as ‘wasteful’ in front of goal.
We bloody love Sadio & long may this hot streak continue.
