Virgil van Dijk registered the fastest sprint of the entire season in the Champions League 2018/19, which his team eventually went on to win!
The Dutchman, a centre-back renowned for his strength rather than his speed, clocked 34.5km/h while desperately tracking back against Barcelona.
Liverpool lost that game 3-0, but turned it around in the second-leg at Anfield, winning 4-0 and qualifying for the final, which we won 2-0 in Madrid v Spurs.
Van Dijk is unarguably the best central defender on the planet and with him leading our backline, we have a chance against anybody.
Liverpool are one of the favourites for the Champions League this season, and considering Jurgen Klopp has never lost a two-legged European tie since taking charge in 2015, rightly so!
Watch him go! 🏃♂️💨
According to UEFA, Virgil van Dijk clocked the fastest sprint in the Champions League last season…
