Match background Only this chapter

Club Atlético de Madrid are up against it as they stake a claim for a top-two finish in Group C, needing victory at Chelsea FC – who booked their round of 16 place in the penultimate fixture – and for the other result to go their way.

Atlético lost 2-1 to Chelsea on matchday two in the first European game played at their new Estadio Metropolitano home, and had to wait until their fifth fixture, a 2-0 home victory against AS Roma, to get their first win on the board in this season's UEFA Champions League.

• Diego Simeone's Atlético therefore have six points, two behind Roma and four adrift of Chelsea. The Spanish side need to win and hope Roma fail to do so at home to bottom side Qarabağ FK to finish second; if both finish on nine points, Atlético have the superior head-to-head.

• Chelsea made sure of progress with a 4-0 victory at Qarabağ last time out. They will take first place if they win, or if Roma fail to win.

Previous meetings
• The teams' last encounters before this season came in the 2013/14 semi-finals, when the first game in Spain finished goalless.

The following week at Stamford Bridge, José Mourinho's Chelsea looked on course for the final when former – and now current – Atlético striker Fernando Torres gave them a 36th-minute lead. However, Adrián López levelled a minute before half-time, then Diego Costa (60pen), who joined Chelsea three months later, and Arda Turan (72) gave the visitors victory.

• The line-ups at Stamford Bridge on 30 April 2014 were:
Chelsea: Schwarzer, Ivanović, Cahill, Terry, Cole (Eto'o 54), Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Ramires, Willian (Schürrle 77), Hazard, Torres (Ba 67).
Atlético: Courtois, Juanfran, Godín, Miranda, Filipe Luís, Mario Suárez (Sosa 79), Koke, Gabi, Raúl García (Villa 86), Diego (Arda Turan 60), Costa.

• These sides also met in the 2012 UEFA Super Cup when Radamel Falcao's first-half hat-trick gave Atlético a 4-1 success in Monaco and their second triumph in the competition in three years. Gary Cahill got Chelsea's consolation after Miranda had made it 4-0 on the hour.

• The line-ups at the Stade Louis II on 31 August 2012 were:
Atlético: Courtois, Juanfran, Godín, Miranda, Filipe Luís, Mario Suárez, Gabi, Koke (García 81), Adrián López (Rodríguez 56), Arda Turan, Falcao (Emre Belözoğlu 87).
Chelsea: Čech, Ivanović, David Luiz, Cahill, Cole (Bertrand 69), Ramires (Oscar 46), Lampard, Mikel, Mata (Sturridge 81), Hazard, Torres.

• That defeat ended Chelsea's 15-match unbeaten run against Spanish opponents (W6 D9).

• The teams' only other meetings came in the 2009/10 UEFA Champions League group stage when Chelsea collected four points from their Spanish rivals to finish top of Group D. Atlético came third and transferred to the maiden edition of the UEFA Europa League, which they eventually won.

Carlo Ancelotti's Chelsea prevailed 4-0 at Stamford Bridge, Salomon Kalou scoring twice (41, 52) before Frank Lampard (69) added another and Luis Perea (90+1) headed a Florent Malouda free-kick into his own net. The defeat prompted the departure of Atlético coach Abel Resino, Quique Sánchez Flores taking over.

• The game in Spain two weeks later ended 2-2, confirming Chelsea's knockout place and ending Atlético's hopes. Substitute Sergio Agüero (66, 90+1) earned a point despite Didier Drogba's double (82, 88).

Match background

• Antonio Conte's side have collected four points at home in Group C, opening with a 6-0 defeat of Qarabağ before being held to a 3-3 draw by Roma on matchday three.

• The Blues have the record of W9 D4 L2 at home to Spanish visitors. The sole defeats were that Atlético reverse in 2014 and a 2-1 loss against FC Barcelona in the 2005/06 round of 16 first leg (2-3 aggregate).

• Champions of England for a sixth time in 2016/17, Chelsea were not involved in European competition last term for the first time since 1996/97. They had appeared in every UEFA Champions League group stage going back to 2003/04.

• European champions in 2012, Chelsea got to the round of 16 on their last UEFA Champions League appearance in 2015/16, losing to Paris Saint-Germain at that stage for the second year running.

The Stamford Bridge side lost 2-1 at home to Paris in the 2016 round of 16, their sole defeat in their last ten matches in west London (W6 D3).

• The Londoners have won their UEFA Champions League group on their last three appearances, and 11 times overall. The only time they have failed to progress to the last 16 was 2012/13, when they became the first holders to go out in the group phase; they went on to win the UEFA Europa League.

• The Spanish outfit are still to win, or score, on their travels in this season's UEFA Champions League, drawing 0-0 at both Roma and Qarabağ.

• Atlético have managed just three victories in their last 11 UEFA Champions League away matches (D4 L4).

• Simeone's charges had a six-game unbeaten streak against Premier League clubs (W4 D2), home and away, ended by Chelsea on matchday two.

• Atlético got the better of English opposition last term, beating Leicester City FC 1-0 at home and 2-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals. The 1-1 draw in that second leg gave the Rojiblancos the record W2 D5 L4 in England, that 2014 Chelsea triumph coming after a run of four defeats in five visits.

• The Madrid club have reached the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals or better in each of the last four seasons.

Coach and player links
• Simeone faced England four times during his international playing career with Argentina (W1 D2 L1).

• Matchday two was Simeone's first loss to English opposition as coach (W3 D2).

• The Atlético boss was in the FC Internazionale Milano side that lost to Manchester United FC in the 1998/99 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, going down 2-0 away before a 1-1 home draw. His overall record as a player against English clubs was W2 D3 L2.

• Thibaut Courtois was loaned to Atlético by Chelsea between 2011 and 2014, making 111 league outings. He was part of the Atleti team that won the UEFA Europa League in 2012, the Copa del Rey the following season and the Spanish Liga in 2013/14, when Atlético also reached the UEFA Champions League final.

• Fernando Torres scored 20 goals in 110 Premier League games for Chelsea between 2011 and 2014, winning the UEFA Champions League in 2011/12 – when he netted in the semi-final second leg at Barcelona.

• Filipe Luís made 15 outings for Chelsea in 2014/15.

• Stefan Savić made 11 appearances during his time in England with Manchester City, but never faced Chelsea.

• Pedro notched 58 goals in 204 league matches for Barcelona between 2008 and 2015, with a record of W10 D4 L2 against Atlético.

• Cesc Fàbregas faced Atlético nine times during his Barcelona career (W3 D5 L1), and got 28 goals in 96 Liga games for Barça between 2012 and 2014.

• Álvaro Morata never scored against Atlético for Real Madrid (W3 L3) but managed 25 goals in 63 league fixtures for the Merengues from 2010 to 2014 and in 2016/17.

• César Azpilicueta took on Atlético five times with CA Osasuna (W3 D1 L1), making 99 league appearances in Spain.

• Willy Caballero mustered one win in six attempts against Atlético with Málaga CF (D3 L2), making 117 Liga appearances for the club in all.

Head coach Only this chapter

Antonio Conte

Date of birth: 31 July 1969
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: US Lecce, Juventus
Coaching career: AC Siena (assistant), USD Arezzo, AS Bari, Atalanta BC, AC Siena, Juventus, Italy, Chelsea FC

• A combative and versatile midfielder, Conte also weighed in with his share of goals – usually spectacular. Made Serie A debut with hometown club Lecce aged 16 in 1985/86 but was not a regular until 1988/89 when his side returned to the top flight after two seasons away. Joined Juventus in November 1991.

• Spent the next 13 seasons at Juve, later describing the famous black-and-white shirt as his "second skin". Won five league titles, the UEFA Champions League in 1995/96 and the UEFA Cup in 1992/93 in addition to triumphs in the UEFA Super Cup, Italian Cup and a European/South American Cup, wearing the captain's armband from 1996. Capped 20 times by Italy, he was part of the squads that finished runners-up at the 1994 FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO 2000.

• Started coaching career as assistant at Siena in 2005, taking over Serie B side Arezzo the following season. After leading Bari and Siena to the top flight in 2009 and 2011 respectively, he signed a two-year contract with Juventus.

• Wasted no time in revamping the squad and enjoyed a debut season to remember as the Bianconeri claimed the Scudetto without losing a single game, suffering their sole defeat of the season against SSC Napoli in the Coppa Italia final. Led Juventus to a second successive title in 2013 and made it three in a row the following year, before stepping down in July 2014.

• Appointed Italy coach on a two-year deal a month later, he guided the Azzurri undefeated to UEFA EURO 2016 and took them to the quarter-finals in France before opting for a new challenge at Chelsea. Proved an instant success in England, winning the Premier League title and reaching the FA Cup final in his first season.

• Joined Atlético in 1994 and won the Spanish domestic double in his second season, his first major club honours to add to two Copa América titles (1991 and 1993) plus the 1992 FIFA Confederations Cup with Argentina.

• Enjoyed further success after returning to Italy, winning the UEFA Cup with Inter, plus a Serie A and Coppa Italia double in his debut campaign with Lazio (1999/2000). After four years in Rome, he returned to Madrid for a second spell with Atlético before ending his playing career in Argentina with Racing Club.

• Led Atletico to victory in the 2012 UEFA Europa League final against Athletic Club and to a Copa del Rey final triumph over Real Madrid CF in 2013. A year later, Atlético held off FC Barcelona and Madrid to win their first league title since 1996, although they lost to Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final. Took Atlético to another UEFA Champions League final in 2016, although again they lost to Madrid.

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 FCSB 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.
