Match background Only this chapter

RB Leipzig have recorded a draw and a defeat in their first two UEFA Champions League fixtures, and are now looking to get their first Group G victory on the board at the expense of FC Porto.

Match background

Leipzig
• This is only Leipzig's third European game. They drew 1-1 at home to 2016/17 semi-finalists AS Monaco FC on matchday one, Emil Forsberg scoring their debut goal, and were beaten 2-0 at Beşiktaş JK in their last fixture.

• Leipzig qualified for a first foray into European competition by finishing second in the 2016/17 Bundesliga – in what, remarkably, was their first season in the German top flight.

• Leipzig are the 12th club to represent Germany in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

• On matchday one, the German side became the first team from any country to make their European debut in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

Porto
• Having lost 3-1 at home to Beşiktaş in their first outing, Porto bounced back impressively thanks to a 3-0 victory at Monaco in what was a repeat of the 2004 UEFA Champions League final.

• Porto's last win in Germany was a 3-1 success at Hamburger SV in the 2006/07 UEFA Champions League group stage. Their record away to Bundesliga clubs since then is D1 L3.

• In 2015/16, Porto went down 2-0 away and 1-0 at home to Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Europa League round of 32. Their previous German exchange had brought a 6-1 reverse at FC Bayern München in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg, equalling their record European defeat.

• Porto's 31 matches against German teams have ended W12 D7 L12 (W3 D4 L8 in Germany). However, their most notable result against German opponents came on neutral territory, in Vienna, where they beat Bayern 2-1 in the 1987 European Champion Clubs' Cup final

• The Portuguese club also claimed the 2004 UEFA Champions League on German soil, beating Monaco 3-0 in the Gelsenkirchen final.

• This is Porto's seventh successive group stage campaign and their record-equalling 22nd in total. In 2016/17, they reached the round of 16, bowing out against eventual runners-up Juventus (0-2 home, 0-1 away).

• Porto had lost their previous three UEFA Champions League fixtures, home and away, before winning at Monaco, their second victory in their last six games in the competition.

• Porto took four points away from home in last year's group stage.

• Last season was the third time in the last six campaigns that Porto have progressed from their group.

Coach and player links
• Timo Werner scored twice in Germany's 3-1 defeat of Cameroon in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup group stage; Vincent Aboubakar got the Cameroon goal.

• Werner also scored, and provided an assist, in Germany's 4-1 semi-final win against a Mexico side including Miguel Layún and Héctor Herrera at this summer's Confederations Cup.

• Bruma was in Sporting Clube de Portugal's senior side in 2012/13, featuring in a 0-0 league draw against Porto.

• Have played together:
Bruma & Alex Telles (Galatasaray AS, 2014/15)
Bruma & Diego Reyes (Real Sociedad de Fútbol, 2015/16)
Bruma & Ricardo, José Sá, Sérgio Oliveira (Portugal Under-21s)

Match facts

Leipzig
• Both teams scored a penalty and had a player sent off as Leipzig won 3-2 at Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

• Lukas Klostermann scored his first top-flight goal as Leipzig won 2-1 at 1. FC Köln on 1 October.

• Leipzig have lost just one of their last nine home games, 5-4 against FC Bayern München on 13 May.

• Werner, who has nine goals in 11 appearances for club and country this season, missed the Köln game and Germany's European Qualifiers due to a cervical spine and jaw problem; he was an unused substitute against Dortmund.

• Stefan Ilsanker played in Austria's 3-2 win at home to Serbia on 6 October but missed the trip to Moldova three days later because of a toe injury. Marcel Sabitzer did not link up with Austria because of a dental operation.

• On 7 October, Naby Keïta scored and was later sent off as Guinea lost 4-1 at home to Tunisia in World Cup qualifying.

Porto
• Seeking their first league title since 2013, Porto won their opening seven Liga fixtures of the season before a goalless draw away to second-placed Sporting Clube de Portugal on 1 October.

• Porto have conceded just six goals in 11 outings this season, keeping seven clean sheets.

• Vincent Aboubakar this month signed a contract tying him to the club until summer 2021.

• Miguel Layún's goal at Monaco on matchday two was his first in nearly seven months for the club. Surprise starter Sérgio Oliveira had not featured for Porto since August 2016; he played 90 minutes at Sporting CP five days later.

Head coach Only this chapter

Ralph Hasenhüttl

Date of birth: 9 August 1967
Nationality: Austrian
Playing career: Grazer AK, FK Austria Wien, SV Austria Salzburg, KV Mechelen, Lierse SK, 1. FC Köln, SpVgg Greuther Fürth, FC Bayern München B
Coaching career: SpVgg Unterhaching (youth), SpVgg Unterhaching, VfR Aalen, FC Ingolstadt 04, RB Leipzig

• A four-time Austrian champion with Austria Wien and Salzburg, Hasenhüttl – who also won the Austrian Cup three times – was a striker who spent two years of his playing career in Belgium and six more in Germany.

• He hung up his boots in 2004 after two years in Bayern's second team and took his first coaching job in southern Munich, working for Unterhaching's youth department. He later got promoted to assistant coach and eventually head coach there. 

• Hasenhüttl pulled off a major coup by taking Ingolstadt into Germany's top division in 2014/15; likened to Jürgen Klopp for his style of relentless and instant pressing after losing possession, he conjured another surprise by escaping relegation the next season with the outsiders.

• Appointed by Leipzig in summer 2016, he proved an instant hit, beginning with a 13-match unbeaten run – their first loss came against Hasenhüttl's former club Ingolstadt.

• The coach, who has a reputation for being very ambitious and persistent, went on to guide the club to the runners-up spot in their first-ever Bundesliga season, earning a place in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage.

2017-10-16T02:05:07:773

Sérgio Conceição

Date of birth: 15 November 1974
Nationality: Portuguese
Playing career: FC Penafiel (loan), Leça FC (loan), FC Felgueiras (loan), FC Porto (twice), SS Lazio (twice), Parma FC, FC Internazionale Milano, R. Standard de Liège, Koweit Qadsia SC, PAOK FC
Coaching career: R. Standard de Liège (assistant), SC Olhanense, A. Académica de Coimbra, SC Braga, Vitória SC, FC Nantes, FC Porto

• A right winger with an eye for goal, Sérgio Conceição was plucked from the youth ranks at hometown side Académica de Coimbra by Porto, where he won two league titles and a Portuguese Cup before leaving for Lazio in 1998. In Rome, he won the 1998/99 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and the UEFA Super Cup the same summer, as well as a Serie A title and a Coppa Italia

• He rejoined Lazio after spells at Parma and Inter. Returned to Porto in 2003/04, winning another Portuguese league title under José Mourinho, before finishing his career with spells in Belgium, Kuwait and Greece. Scored 12 goals in 56 Portugal games, including a celebrated hat-trick in a 3-0 win against defending champions Germany at UEFA EURO 2000.

• After retiring, worked as PAOK's sporting director and Standard's assistant coach before taking charge of Olhanense back in Portugal midway through 2011/12, guiding the relegation-threatened side to a comfortable eighth-placed finish.

• Returned to his home town Coimbra – where a stadium has been named in his honour – to lead Académica in 2013, and then took Braga to the 2014/15 Portuguese Cup final, where they lost to Sporting CP on penalties.

• Led Vitória Guimarães in 2015/16, and then pulled Nantes out of a relegation nosedive in France the following season, a respectable seventh-placed finish prompting Porto to hire him on a two-year contract in summer 2017.

Competition facts Only this chapter

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

• In 2012/13, Chelsea became the first defending champions to fail to get through a group stage since the UEFA Champions League began. (This record, like the others, includes the seasons between 1999/2000 and 2002/03 that featured a second group stage). In 1992/93, Barcelona were the reigning European Champion Clubs' Cup holders and lost 4-3 on aggregate in the second round to CSKA Moskva.

• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defended the UEFA Champions League trophy, with Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete in the UEFA Champions League having featured against Real Madrid on matchday six in 2007/08 aged 43 years and 252 days. Alessandro Costacurta is the oldest outfield player; the Milan defender was 40 years and 211 days when he played against AEK Athens in 2006/07.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years and 59 days, in Roma's 1-1 draw at CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Celestine Babayaro is the youngest player to have appeared; he was 16 years and 87 days when he started for Anderlecht against Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994. He was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Peter Ofori-Quaye is the youngest player to have scored in the UEFA Champions League, aged 17 years and 195 days. He found the net in Olympiacos's 5-1 defeat at Rosenborg on 1 October 1997.

• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in Barcelona's 7-1 win against Bayer Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat matched by Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Eleven more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, most recently Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid CF on matchday six in 2015/16.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, eclipsing his own mark of nine goals in 2013/14, which Luiz Adriano matched in 2014/15. Lionel Messi got ten goals in 2016/17; Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi and Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03) managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick on matchday three of the 2016/17 competition was his seventh in the competition, a record Ronaldo matched against Club Atlético de Madrid in the 2016/17 semi-finals.

• Barcelona have finished as group winners on 18 occasions, three more than Real Madrid and four more than Manchester United and FC Bayern München.

• Bayern München (2 April 2013 to 27 November 2013) and Real Madrid (23 April 2014 to 18 February 2015) jointly hold the record for successive wins in the UEFA Champions League proper with ten. Bayern surpassed the previous mark of nine, set by Barcelona between 18 September 2002 and 18 February 2003.

• Six teams have recorded six successive victories in a UEFA Champions League group stage: Milan (1992/93), Paris Saint-Germain (1994/95), Spartak Moskva (1995/96), Barcelona (2002/03, first group stage) and Real Madrid (2011/12 and 2014/15).

• Nineteen teams have gone through a UEFA Champions League group stage without picking up a single point, most recently Club Brugge KV and GNK Dinamo Zagreb in 2016/17.

• Borussia Dortmund set a new group stage record by scoring 21 goals in 2016/17, eclipsing the old mark of 20 by Manchester United (1998/99), Barcelona (2011/12, 2016/17) and Real Madrid (2013/14).

• Only Deportivo La Coruña (2004/05), Maccabi Haifa (2009/10) and Dinamo Zagreb (2016/17) have failed to score in a group stage.

• BATE Borisov conceded 24 goals in 2014/15, a new record which was matched by Legia Warszawa in 2016/17. The previous mark, 22, was held by Dinamo Zagreb (2011/12) and Nordsjælland (2012/13); Malmö FF shipped 21 in 2015/16.

• No team has ever gone through a UEFA Champions League group stage without conceding a goal. Milan (1992/93), Ajax (1995/96), Juventus (1996/97 and 2004/05), Chelsea (2005/06), Liverpool (2005/06), Villarreal (2005/06), Manchester United (2010/11), Monaco (2014/15) and Paris Saint-Germain (2015/16) all let in just one.

• Before their 3-1 win against Sporting Clube de Portugal on matchday six of the 2006/07 campaign, Spartak Moskva went 22 games without a victory in the competition, a mark Steaua Bucureşti surpassed on matchday six in 2013/14.

• RSC Anderlecht hold the unwanted record for successive defeats in the competition, group stage to final, having lost 12 in a row between December 2003 and November 2005. GNK Dinamo Zagreb are next with 11 consecutive losses on two occasions, from September 2011 to December 2012 and again from 29 September 2015 onwards.

• The lowest total for a team qualifying from the group stage is six points: Zenit in 2013/14 and AS Roma in 2015/16. Since three points for a win was introduced in 1995/96, eight teams have made it through with seven points: Legia Warszawa (1995/96), Dynamo Kyiv (1999/2000), Liverpool (2001/02), Lokomotiv Moskva and eventual finalists Juventus (both 2002/03), Rangers and Werder Bremen (2005/06) and Basel 1893 (2014/15).

• Napoli failed to qualify from their group with 12 points in 2013/14, the highest total of any team not to reach the next stage when the top two in each section progressed. Dynamo Kyiv (1999/2000), Borussia Dortmund (2002/03 – both second group stage), PSV Eindhoven (2003/04), Olympiacos and Dynamo Kyiv (both 2004/05), Werder Bremen (2006/07), Manchester City (2011/12), Chelsea and CFR 1907 Cluj (both 2012/13), Benfica (2013/14) and FC Porto (2015/16) all missed out with ten points.

• Only two teams have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Borussia Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome), while Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.
