Mane expecting Liverpool to maintain scoring form

Champions League

Liverpool star Sadio Mane believes his side can continue to deliver in front of goal as they try to progress in the Champions League.

The Reds are the second highest scorers in the competition after scoring 16 goals in five games. Only Paris Saint-Germain have a better record than Jurgen Klopp’s men but the pressure is on them on Wednesday.

Liverpool must avoid defeat against Spartak Moscow at Anfield if they are to progress to the last 16 but Mane is not worried by their chances.

A point will see them qualify for the knockout stages for the first time since 2009 and Mane is confident they will continue to shine in front of goal for the rest of the tournament.

He said: “I think we have scored more goals than many big teams.

“It is important to score goals and win the games. It doesn’t matter to us [who scores], we just want to win the games.

“We are working hard every single day to be difficult for the defenders. We going to try to do our best and cause as many problems as we can for the defenders.

“Liverpool is a big and great club; we want to play a big part in the Champions League. We want to go as far as we can.”
