Liverpool has crashed out of the UEFA Champions League in yet another unconvincing performance from the Reds.
The Egyptian had a night to forget at Anfield. He was caught napping in possession and also failed to score from 4 big chances created for him inside the box.
First, in the opening three minutes of the encounter, Mane set up Salah in a blistering counter-attacking move by Liverpool, only for Courtois to pull off an easy save from his tame effort.
Had Salah scored, it'd have been game on for Liverpool.
Another chance fell for Salah in the 41st minutes. Gini Wijnaldum picked out Mane on the left flank who then set up Salah yet again inside the box.
The Egyptian could only sky his effort from about five yards out.
A third chance was created for Salah in the 68th by Trent Arnold.
The English fullback rolled the ball into Salah's path right inside the box. Rather than shooting, Salah took a lot of touches, buying enough time for Madrid to cover and make a block.
The last chance fell for Salah in the additional minutes of normal time.
Rather than lob the onrushing goalkeeper, Salah struck his effort straight at Courtois.
Yes, Liverpool's attack was poor, but Mo Salah failed to take key chances that could have opened up the tie.
The Egyptian wasted the most chances created on the night in an uncharacteristic display for Liverpool.
There you have it.
