Champions League victor Real Madrid earned 88.6 million euros ($101.2 million) in prize money from UEFA last season, while beaten finalist Liverpool pocketed 81.2 million euros ($92.7 million).

Liverpool doubled the lead right before half-time when Salah scored his first on the night with a strike to the near post, set up once again by Shaqiri on a quick tap from just outside of the box.

Albert Stubbins, who starred for Liverpool in the post-war period and helped the Reds to the 1946-47 First Division title, was the previous record holder, reaching the mark in 77 games in the late 1940s.

Liverpool travel to Belgrade for the return with Red Star in two weeks, knowing that another three points in the Serbian capital will go a long way to helping them seal qualification for the knockout phase of the competition.

As for Red Star Belgrade, they will be looking to keep it tight following a comprehensive 6-1 defeat to PSG last time out. That would mean Dejan Lovren drops out of the starting XI, while Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson will be retained for the game. In the United States the game can be watched live on television on NBC Sports, kick off 10am ET.

He made only his second start in the 4-0 win at Anfield on Wednesday, a day after turning 25, and thrived alongside Georginio Wijnaldum at the base of the midfield. They have achieved those results while adapting their pressing game, both to draw out defensive opponents and to make themselves more solid, resulting in only three goals being conceded in nine league games so far this season.

His impressive milestones were matched, and even bettered by Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah whose brace took him to 50 goals for Liverpool in just 65 appearances - the fastest by any player in the club's history.
