Match background Only this chapter

FC Bayern München are looking to regroup after a notable setback in their second Group B fixture, and will aim to get back on track against a Celtic FC side buoyed by a rare away victory last time out.

• Bayern were beaten 3-0 at Paris Saint-Germain on matchday two, a defeat that prompted the departure of coach Carlo Ancelotti the following day. Celtic, meanwhile, won by the same scoreline at RSC Anderlecht last time out, their biggest away win in the UEFA Champions League. 

Previous meetings
• The sides' only past fixtures came in the 2003/04 group stage, when Bayern picked up four points from their two games against Celtic.

• Bayern, then coached by Ottmar Hitzfeld, came from behind to win 2-1 in Munich on matchday one, Roy Makaay scoring two late goals (73, 86) after Alan Thompson had given Martin O'Neill's Celtic a 57th-minute lead.

• The line-ups at the Olympiastadion on 17 September 2003 were:
Bayern: Kahn, Sagnol, Kovač, Linke, Lizarazu (Rau 73), Hargreaves, Salihamidžić (Santa Cruz 73), Ballack, Zé Roberto, Pizarro, Makaay.
Celtic: Hedman, Agathe, Varga, Baldé, McNamara, Petrov, Lennon, Thompson, Sutton, Hartson (Miller 66), Larsson.

• The game at Celtic Park on 25 November 2003 ended goalless. Hasan Salihamidžić, now Bayern's sporting director, featured in both matches.

Match background

• This is Bayern's first game against a Scottish club since a 5-1 win at home to Aberdeen FC in the 2007/08 UEFA Cup round of 32 second leg (7-3 aggregate).

• Bayern have won their last four matches against Scottish visitors in Munich, and are unbeaten at home against clubs from Scotland (W5 D3).

• Bayern qualified for the group stage after winning their fifth straight Bundesliga title in 2016/17. The German side are aiming to reach the knockout rounds for the tenth season in a row.

• The Munich club, 3-0 victors at home to Anderlecht in their first Group B game, won all 16 of their European home matches between 17 September 2014 and 15 February this year, a competition record; the 2-1 loss to Real Madrid CF in the quarter-finals was their first reverse in Munich since a 4-0 defeat by the same opponents in their 2013/14 semi-final second leg.

• Under Ancelotti, Bayern came second in their group behind Club Atlético de Madrid in 2016/17 – the first time they had failed to win their section since 2009/10. They beat Arsenal FC 10-2 on aggregate in the round of 16, only to lose 6-3 over two legs to Madrid.

• Bayern have won all ten group home games since a 3-2 reverse at the hands of Manchester City FC on matchday six in 2013/14.

Beaten 5-0 by Paris in Glasgow in their Group B opener, their biggest home European defeat, Celtic ended a ten-game (D3 L7), four-year winless run in the UEFA Champions League group stage by overcoming Anderlecht. Their previous win was a 2-1 home success against AFC Ajax on 22 October 2013.

• The Anderlecht win was the Hoops' first for 17 European group stage fixtures in the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League (D7 L9).

• In 2016/17 Celtic came fourth in their section, taking three points from six games. They suffered a record 7-0 loss at FC Barcelona but drew 1-1 at both VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach and Manchester City FC.

• The Mönchengladbach draw, their second in succession in Germany, left Celtic with the record W0 D3 L7 away to Bundesliga clubs.

• The Scottish champions are on a seven-game winless run, home and away, against German clubs (D3 L4). Paul Lambert, Shaun Maloney and Stiliyan Petrov scored when Celtic last overcame German opposition – 3-1 at home against VfB Stuttgart in the 2002/03 UEFA Cup fourth round.

• Celtic started this season in the second qualifying round, beating Linfield FC (2-0 away, 4-0 home) and then Rosenborg BK in the third qualifying round (0-0 home, 1-0 away). They posted a fifth straight clean sheet with a 5-0 win against FC Astana in the home first leg of their play-off, advancing despite a 4-3 loss in Kazakhstan which ended a four-game (W2 D2) unbeaten away run in Europe.

• The victory at Linfield broke Celtic's 11-match sequence without an away win in Europe (D6 L5).

• Scottish champions for a sixth consecutive campaign in 2016/17 – when they went through their domestic season unbeaten – Celtic are in the group stage for the tenth time.

Coach and player links
• Arturo Vidal helped Juventus beat Celtic away (3-0) and home (2-0) in the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League round of 16.

• Manuel Neuer, Jérôme Boateng and Thomas Müller, who scored both goals, all started for Germany in their 2-1 UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying victory over Scotland on 7 September 2014.

• Neuer, Boateng, Müller and Mats Hummels started Germany's 3-2 defeat of Scotland at Hampden Park in the return fixture a year later, Müller again scoring twice. Scott Brown and James Forrest started for Scotland.

• Robert Lewandowski scored twice at Hampden Park in Poland's 2-2 draw in October 2015; Brown and Forrest started for Scotland with Craig Gordon on the bench.

• Franck Ribéry and Brown both started Scotland's 1-0 win away to France in UEFA EURO 2008 qualifying on 12 September 2009.

• A Tom Rogic goal was not enough to prevent Australia losing 3-2 to Germany, for whom Joshua Kimmich provided an assist, in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.

• On 10 October Arjen Robben scored both Netherlands goals in a 2-0 home win against Mikael Lustig's Sweden, although it was the Scandinavian side who qualified for the World Cup play-offs.

• Rafinha won his first Brazil cap for more than three years in a 4-0 friendly win against Rogic's Australia on 13 June 2017.

• International team-mates:
Kingsley Coman & Moussa Dembélé, Olivier Ntcham (France Under-21s)

Match facts

• Jupp Heynckes returned to Bayern for a fourth spell as coach, succeeding Ancelotti, on 6 October. On Saturday, his team won 5-0 against Freiburg in his first game in charge.

• Under caretaker Willy Sagnol, Bayern drew 2-2 at Hertha BSC Berlin on 1 October, squandering a two-goal lead – just as they did in the 2-2 home draw against VfL Wolfsburg nine days earlier.

• Lewandowski – who has 18 goals in 16 appearances for club and country this season – hit a hat-trick in Poland's 6-1 victory over Armenia on 5 October and then scored once in the FIFA World Cup qualification-clinching 4-2 defeat of Montenegro three days later. He now has 51 goals for his country, overtaking Włodzimierz Lubański (48) as Poland's all-time top scorer.

• Lewandowski finished Group E with 16 goals – the most ever in a European qualifying campaign for a World Cup or UEFA European Championship.

• Robben, who scored three times in the Netherlands' wins against Belarus (3-1) and Sweden (2-0), retired from international football after the Oranje's failure to qualify for Russia.

• Sebastian Rudy, with his first goal for his country, and Joshua Kimmich were on target for Germany as they confirmed their place at the finals next summer by defeating Northern Ireland 3-1 on 5 October. Kimmich provided nine assists overall, the most in the European Qualifiers.

• Thiago Alcántara got his name on the scoresheet in Spain's 3-0 home win against Albania, his first international goal and a result that rubber-stamped La Roja's ticket to Russia, before leaving the squad with an ankle injury and missing the trip to Israel. He played and scored against Freiburg, however.

• James Rodríguez scored in Colombia's qualification-sealing 1-1 draw in Peru on 10 October.

• David Alaba, who played in Bayern's two matches before the international break, withdrew from the Austria squad because of ongoing problems relating to the ankle injury he sustained on 5 September. He too returned against Freiburg.

• Ribéry suffered a knee injury against Hertha and will be out for the rest of the year – as is Manuel Neuer, who fractured a metatarsal bone in his left foot while training on 18 September.

• Bernat, who has not played this season owing to an ankle injury sustained in July, resumed light training on 6 October.

• Mats Hummels and Lewandowski are on the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d'Or. The winner will be announced in December.

• Celtic are unbeaten in 59 domestic matches – the Hoops' last league defeat coming against Saint Johnstone FC in their penultimate fixture of 2015/16.

• Cristian Gamboa played in Costa Rica's 1-1 home draw against Honduras on 7 October, a result that secured the Ticos' place at the World Cup.

• Rogic appeared in both games as Australia defeated Syria after extra time in an AFC play-off. The Socceroos take on Honduras over two legs next month for a berth in Russia.

• Lustig also faces a play-off with Sweden, who finished second behind France in their European Qualifiers group. Lustig scored in the Blågult's 8-0 home win against Luxembourg and played the entirety of their 2-0 defeat in the Netherlands three days later.

• Leigh Griffiths' fourth goal in his last five internationals gave Scotland the lead against Slovenia on 8 October. However, the 2-2 draw in Ljubljana was not enough for a place in the play-offs.

• Craig Gordon earned his 50th cap in Scotland's 1-0 win against Slovakia on 5 October.

• Jozo Šimunović (hamstring), Brown (hamstring) and Stuart Armstrong (calf) missed the international fixtures and Saturday's 1-0 win against Dundee FC, in which Kouassi Eboué made his first appearance since 8 August after recovering from an ankle operation. Tony Ralston has not played since 20 September due to a knee problem.

• Kristoffer Ajer dislocated a shoulder in Norway Under-21s' 3-1 success against Germany on 10 October.

• Kolo Touré has returned to Celtic after retiring as a player to take up the post of technical assistant.

Head coach Only this chapter

Jupp Heynckes

Date of birth: 9 May 1945
Nationality: German
Playing career: VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach (twice), Hannover 96
Coaching career:
VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach (twice), FC Bayern München (four times), Athletic Club (twice), Eintracht Frankfurt, CD Tenerife, Real Madrid CF, SL Benfica, FC Schalke 04, Bayer 04 Leverkusen

• One of the best strikers in Bundesliga history, Heynckes hit 220 goals in 369 games for Mönchengladbach and Hannover between 1964 and 1978; won four titles and a German Cup with Mönchengladbach and was the league's top scorer in 1974 (30 goals) and 1975 (27).

• Aged 34, replaced Udo Lattek as Mönchengladbach coach in 1979; mentored Lothar Matthäus but failed to win any trophies, losing to Bayern in the 1983/84 German Cup final and reaching the 1986/87 UEFA Cup semi-finals. Replaced Lattek again in 1987, this time at Bayern, winning 1989 and 1990 titles; club general manager Uli Hoeness called his decision to sack Heynckes in October 1991 "the biggest mistake of my career".

• Moved to Spain, first with Athletic then led Tenerife to the 1996/97 UEFA Cup semi-finals, earning a season at Madrid, whom he led to glory in the 1997/98 UEFA Champions League but left that summer. Stepped in as caretaker manager at Bayern in April 2009 following Jürgen Klinsmann's dismissal; replaced Bruno Labbadia as Leverkusen coach that summer and began season with a German record run of 24 Bundesliga games unbeaten.

• His Leverkusen side finished second to Borussia Dortmund in 2010/11 before Heynckes left to take charge of Bayern for a third time; they lost 4-3 to Chelsea FC on penalties in the 2012 UEFA Champions League final at their Fußball Arena München but rallied to win a domestic double and the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League, beating Dortmund in the final.

• Stepped down and retired that summer but returned to the club in October 2017 following Carlo Ancelotti's departure, charged with leading Bayern until the end of the season.


Brendan Rodgers

Date of birth: 26 January 1973
Nationality: Northern Irish
Playing career:
Ballymena United FC, Reading FC
Coaching career: Watford FC, Reading FC, Swansea City AFC, Liverpool FC, Celtic FC

• Began his career as a defender with Ballymena in his native Northern Ireland before moving to English club Reading at the age of 18. Troubled by persistent injuries, he was forced to give up playing aged 20 having never made a senior appearance for the Royals.

• Became academy boss at Reading in 1995, spending nine years in the role. His talents were spotted by José Mourinho and Rodgers was given a leading role in the Chelsea FC youth system in 2004, stepping up to reserve team manager in 2006.

• Left Chelsea for his first managerial post at second-tier Watford in November 2008 and guided the Hornets to a 13th-place finish. Returned to Reading in the summer of 2009 but only remained until December despite a promising start to the season.

• Stayed in the second division when appointed Swansea manager in July 2010 and guided the club into the Premier League via the end-of-season play-offs. Enhanced his repuation as he led the Welsh outfit to an 11th-place finish in their first top-flight campaign since 1982/83. 

• Left Swansea for Liverpool in June 2012, steering the Reds to seventh in the Premier League in his first term and into the UEFA Europa League round of 32. Oversaw an 11-game winning streak in the second half of the 2013/14 season that almost brought Liverpool's first league title since 1990, but lost out to Manchester City FC. Rodgers was dismissed in October 2015, resurfacing at Celtic the following summer, and proved an instant hit in Scotland, winning the treble in his first season which ended with Celtic going through the entire domestic campaign undefeated.

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.
