Mohamed Salah Escapes Red Card For Shock Challenge On Porto's Danilo Pereira

Mohamed Salah has once again been placed at the centre of controversy after his shock challenge in Liverpool's Champions League clash against Porto.

The 26-year-old Reds star went in for a tackle that caught Danilo Pereira, which many have labelled a potential leg breaker.

Check it out below.


Shocker, right?


Unsurprisingly, football fans have flocked to Twitter and expressed their outrage at the incident.


Jürgen Klopp's men sealed a 2-0 first-leg quarter-final win at Anfield, with Naby Keïta and Roberto Firmino getting their names on the scoresheet.

In other Champions League news, Tottenham Hotspur clinched a 1-0 victory over Manchester City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after Son Heung-min scored the winner in the second half.


The match wasn't without its controversies, namely for a VR decision that led to the reigning Premier League champions being awarded a penalty and Sergio Agüero being denied the opener.

What did you make of Salah's challenge?

Let us know in the comments.
