Match background Only this chapter

UEFA Champions League semi-finalists in 2016/17, AS Monaco FC have work to do having collected just one point from their first two Group G outings – five points fewer than their matchday three opponents Beşiktaş JK.

• Leonardo Jardim's team were beaten 3-0 at home by FC Porto last time out, having drawn 1-1 away to debutants RB Leipzig on matchday one. Beşiktaş are three points clear at the top of the table after winning 3-1 at Porto on the opening night and then overcoming Leipzig 2-0 in Istanbul.

• This is a first meeting between these two clubs, but each played opponents from the other's country in 2016/17.

Match background

• The French side faced Fenerbahçe SK in last season's third qualifying round, losing 2-1 in Turkey but winning 3-1 at home to start their memorable run to the semi-finals. Radamel Falcao scored in both legs.

• That was a third straight home victory over Turkish visitors for Monaco, who have failed to win only one such game – the first, against Galatasaray AŞ in the 1988/89 European Champion Clubs' Cup quarter-finals (0-1).

• Monaco's overall record against Turkish teams is W4 D1 L3.

• Having been unbeaten in seven European home matches (W6 D1), Monaco have lost the last two. They picked up seven points at home in the 2016/17 group stage.

• Monaco have nevertheless lost only three of their last 15 European home games (W9 D3).

• Monaco are in their eighth group stage campaign. Finalists in 2004, they got to the semis in 1994, 1998 and 2017.

• The principality outfit had another memorable European season in 2016/17, knocking out Manchester City FC and Borussia Dortmund en route to the last four. There they succumbed 4-1 on aggregate to Juventus (0-2 home, 1-2 away).

• Beşiktaş's interest in European competition last term was ended when French opponents Olympique Lyonnais – whose team included Rachid Ghezzal, now of Monaco – won their UEFA Europa League quarter-final 7-6 on penalties after a 2-1 first-leg home victory for the French club was replicated by their rivals in the Istanbul return.

• All but one of Beşiktaş's eight matches against Ligue 1 sides have produced a home win. The sole exception was their 2-2 home draw with AJ Auxerre in the 1994/95 UEFA European Cup Winners' Cup second round first leg (2-4 on aggregate).

• The Turkish team have therefore lost on all four visits to France, scoring two goals and conceding eight. They have let in two goals in each of their away games.

• Victory at Porto was Beşiktaş's fourth in their last ten European away matches (D3 L3).

• In 2016/17, Beşiktaş finished third in their group and moved into the UEFA Europa League, where they got as far as the quarter-finals before losing to Lyon.

• The Istanbul club collected four points on their travels in last year's group stage, the highlight a 3-2 triumph at Napoli.

Coach and player links
• Jardim was in charge of SC Braga for their 2011/12 UEFA Europa League round of 32 elimination at the hands of Beşiktaş (0-2 home, 1-0 away).

• Talisca scored the only goal of SL Benfica's UEFA Champions League group stage win against Monaco in 2014/15.

• Álvaro Negredo netted Valencia CF's goal in a 2-1 defeat at Monaco in the 2015/16 play-offs, completing a 4-3 aggregate victory for the Spanish side.

• Arda Turan struck Turkey's last-minute winner past Switzerland goalkeeper Diego Benaglio in the UEFA EURO 2008 group stage.

• Falcao scored away (3-1) and home (1-1) against Beşiktaş in Porto's victorious 2010/11 UEFA Europa League campaign, João Moutinho also playing both group games. Falcao was on target too in Club Atlético de Madrid's 3-0 win at Beşiktaş in the 2011/12 round of 16 second leg, his side again going on to lift the trophy.

• International team-mates:
João Moutinho & Pepe, Ricardo Quaresma (Portugal)
Diego Benaglio & Gökhan Inler (Switzerland)
Danijel Subašić & Matej Mitrović (Croatia)
Terence Kongolo & Jeremain Lens (Netherlands)

• Adriano was an unused substitute against Gençlerbirliği having not featured since 18 September due to a calf injury.

Head coach Only this chapter

Leonardo Jardim

Date of birth: 1 August 1974
Nationality: Portuguese 
Coaching career:
 AD Camacha, GD Chaves, SC Beira-Mar, SC Braga, Olympiacos FC, Sporting Clube de Portugal, AS Monaco FC

• Played football at an amateur level during his youth and despite a passing interest in handball, it was always Jardim's intention to become a coach. Studied physical education at the University of Madeira, and at 24 became the youngest Portuguese coach to obtain a UEFA A licence. 

• Three years later, in 2001, appointed assistant coach at Madeiran club Camacha, where he impressed sufficiently to take charge of first-team duties two years later. Left to join Chaves midway through 2007/08, masterminding rise to the second division 18 months later. Also won promotion at Beira-Mar after taking charge in summer 2009 and preserved their top-flight status the following season before stepping down. 

• Signed a three-year contract when he succeeded Domingos Paciência at Braga in 2011 but left after only one having guided the club to a third-placed finish, helped by a record-breaking 13 successive league wins at the turn of the year, and into the UEFA Europa League round of 16.

• Confirmed as the new coach of Olympiacos in June 2012, putting pen to paper on a two-year contract, but dismissed the following January despite a ten-point lead in the league. Resurfaced at Sporting, leading the club to second place in the 2013/14 Portuguese Liga.

• Subsequently succeeded Claudio Ranieri at Monaco, guiding the club to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals in 2014/15, when they finished third in Ligue 1. Jardim and Monaco were third again the following season; that set up a remarkable run to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals in 2016/17, an attack-minded young side also winning Ligue 1 ahead of Paris Saint-Germain.


Şenol Güneş

Date of birth: 1 June 1952
Nationality: Turkish
Playing career:
Sebat Gençlik, Trabzonspor AŞ
Coaching career: Trabzonspor AŞ (four times), Boluspor, İstanbulspor, Antalyaspor, Sakaryaspor, Turkey, FC Seoul, Bursaspor, Beşiktaş JK

• Born in the Black Sea port of Trabzon, Günes became a legendary figure at his local club, keeping goal in the Trabzonspor side that won the Turkish league title six times – and the Turkish Cup three times – during his 15-year spell from 1972-87; also won 31 caps for Turkey, captaining the team on five occasions.

• Made the natural transition from player to coach at Trabzonspor after hanging up his gloves, moving up swiftly from assistant to head coach; rejoined the club after spells with Boluspor and İstanbulspor, leading the team from 1993 to 1997, claiming the Turkish Cup in 1995 and a league runners-up spot in 1996.

• After brief spells with Antalyaspor and Sakaryaspor he was appointed Turkish national team coach in 2000 and proved an immediate hit, leading the country not only to their first FIFA World Cup finals in 48 years but all the way to the semi-finals, and third place, of the 2002 tournament in Korea/Japan.

• Left Turkey job after failure to qualify for UEFA EURO 2004 and returned to Trabzonspor but reign was brief and he later resurfaced in South Korea – the scene of his greatest triumph – with FC Seoul.

• Returned to Trabzonspor for the fourth time in December 2009 and led club to Turkish Cup and Super Cup triumph the following year, Trabzonspor then finishing second in the 2010/11 Süper Lig. Spent 2014/15 at Bursaspor, guiding them to the Turkish Cup final, before taking charge at Beşiktaş in June 2015. Went on to win the league title in his debut season – his first championship as a coach; made it two in a row in 2016/17.

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.
