Liverpool’s 7-0 away win over Maribor on Tuesday night added to what is a storied history in European competition for the Reds.
Having won five Champions League/European Cup titles, the Merseysiders know a thing or two about overcoming top continental adversaries.
However, their wins over some of European football’s lesser-known sides have also placed them in the history books.
The Reds’ 8-0 win over Beşiktaş in 2007 is already the joint biggest victory in the Champions League era, but Jurgen Klopp’s side have now equalled Marseille and Shakhtar Donetsk’s 7-0 away wins over Zilina and BATE Borisov respectively meaning they hold the record of the biggest away win by an English club.
Liverpool's 7-0 win against Maribor is the biggest ever away win by an English side in Champions League history.

This also means the Reds have broken a long-standing joint record set in part by Leeds United in 1969 when they beat Lyn 6-0. What will matter more to the Anfield faithful, however, is that this win overrides Manchester United’s own 6-0 win over Shamrock Rovers in 1957.
