The Egypt sharp-shooter has smashed a mark previously set in the post-war period as he recorded a half century in record time for the Reds.
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has reached 50 goals for the Anfield club with his second of the evening against Red Star Belgrade.
The Egypt international struggled to find his best form at the start of the season after a wonderful debut campaign for the Reds.
But after breaking a goalless spell with the only strike of the game at the weekend against Huddersfield, he now seems to be back to his prolific best.
Salah was on top form on Wednesday to break down the resistance of Liverpool’s latest Champions League opponents.
After Roberto Firmino had opened the scoring at Anfield early on, he moved within one goal of the milestone with an effort on the stroke of half-time.
And a second half penalty took him up to the half-century, a mark reached in just 65 games in the Liverpool shirt.
It is also a record for the Reds, as he becomes the fastest man ever to score 50 goals.

Albert Stubbins, who starred for Liverpool in the post-war period and helped the Reds to the 1946-47 First Division title, was the previously record holder, reaching the mark in 77 games in the late 1940s.
Salah made an instant impact on English football after being signed by Liverpool from Roma in the summer of 2017.
In his first season under the eye of Jurgen Klopp, the striker helped himself to an incredible 44 goals in 56 games, including a Premier League haul of 32 strikes which earned him the Golden Boot.
So far in 2018-19 he has not fared as well, scoring six goals in 13 games.
But on the evidence of his last two outings, Salah is gearing up to put in another fine season even if he does not quite hit the heights of 2018-19.
