Divock Origi Has Scored More Champions League Semi-Final And Final Goals Than Thierry Henry

Divock Origi has scored three Champions League semi-final and final goals. Thierry Henry has scored just one.

The Liverpool favourite produced heroics in Europe this past campaign. He scored a stunning brace against Barcelona in the semi-final second leg to secure his side's spot in the final.

And, in Madrid, he came off the bench to double Liverpool's advantage.

Origi has three Champions League semi-final and final goals to his name while Henry has just one goal in the same stages throughout his glittering career.

The legendary Frenchman enjoyed spells at Arsenal and Barcelona, though his only Champions League semi-final and final goal happened during his time at AS Monaco.

He scored in AS Monaco's semi-final aggregate defeat to Juventus in the 1997/98 campaign.

Henry moved to Arsenal in 1999 and he failed to score a Champions League semi-final and final goal with European silverware eluding him until his transfer to Barcelona.

He was unable to score in the latter stages for the Catalan giants, but he did secure the 'Big Ears' trophy in the 2008/09 season.

Origi, meanwhile, is entering the final 12 months of his Liverpool contract and the 24-year-old is hoping to extend his stay at Anfield.

"The next few weeks we'll have to sit down and see what the future holds," he said prior to Belgium's Euro 2020 qualifier against Scotland.

"For now, I just want to focus on these last few games (with Belgium) and then see after that.

"I want to speak to the club and my people internally before going public but hopefully the talks between me, the club and my people will be positive."

Liverpool's cult-hero, who also scored a dramatic winner against Everton last term, is gunning for the Premier League following last season's incredible title challenge.

"It's a big goal which we want to make steps towards. This years' experience and the Champions League win will help us, and it would be nice to win it," he added.

"But also, let's just enjoy what we have done (winning the Champions League) and then reset some goals ready for next season."
