Match facts: Dinamo Zagreb v PSG

Dinamo Zagreb

UEFA Champions League statistics
• Ivan Kelava, Tonel and Domagoj Vida have played all 720 minutes of Dinamo's UEFA Champions League campaign, qualifying included.

• Dinamo have committed just 16 fouls, fewer than any other team in the group stage.

• Dinamo's 2-0 loss to FC Porto on matchday one was their first defeat in 34 games since Ante Čačić took the reins on 23 December 2011, winning 24.

• The matchday two reverse at FC Dynamo Kyiv took Dinamo's losing streak in the UEFA Champions League proper to eight matches. RSC Anderlecht have suffered the most successive defeats in the competition's history with 12, with SK Rapid Wien in second place on nine.

International duty
• Four Dinamo players were on senior duty during the international break: Josip Šimunić, Vida, Sammir (Croatia) and Fatos Beqiraj (Montenegro).

• Brazilian-born midfielder Sammir made his debut for Croatia in their 2-1 FIFA World Cup qualifying victory against the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia on 12 October.

Miscellaneous
• Ante Puljić scored his first goal for Dinamo in Saturday's 2-0 win against NK Inter Zaprešić.

• Alen Halilović became the youngest scorer in Prva Liga history, aged 16 years and 111 days, when he capped a late cameo with the final goal in his side's 4-1 win at NK Slaven Koprivnica on 7 October. Eight days earlier the midfielder had broken the equivalent appearance record with a substitute outing against HNK Hajduk Split.

• Four days after losing to Porto, Dinamo suffered a 3-0 reverse at HNK Rijeka – their first top-flight defeat since 14 October last year. They had not been beaten by three goals in the league since a 5-2 loss to Slaven Koprivnica on 8 December 2007.

• Dinamo were held by Inter Zaprešić on the opening day of the First League season, the first time they failed to win their top-flight curtain-raiser since 2002.

• Jallet scored his first international goal on his competitive debut as France overcame Belarus 3-1 on 11 September.

Miscellaneous
