Match background Only this chapter

It is all to play for at Anfield on matchday six when Liverpool FC and FC Spartak Moskva meet with a place in the round of 16 on the line.

• Liverpool lead the way in Group E with nine points, one more than Sevilla FC – who conclude their campaign away to bottom side NK Maribor – and three ahead of Spartak, who drew 1-1 with the Reds in Russia on matchday two.

A draw would therefore be enough for the home team, who will finish first in the section with a win or with a draw if Sevilla fail to win. If Liverpool lose they are out unless Sevilla are also defeated as Liverpool, who let slip a 3-0 half-time lead to draw 3-3 in Spain last time out, would be below Spartak in a two-way head-to-head or would be third in a three-way head-to-head on nine points.

• Spartak will be through with a win or third with any other result. If Spartak win they will finish top unless Sevilla also win.

Previous meetings
• Liverpool had the upper hand when these clubs were paired together in the 2002/03 first group stage, winning 5-0 at home thanks to two goals from Emile Heskey and one each for Bruno Cheyrou, Sami Hyypiä and substitute Salif Diao.

• The line-ups at Anfield on 2 October 2002 were:
Liverpool: Dudek, Henchoz (Traoré 67), Carragher, Hyypiä, Riise, Hamann, Murphy, Gerrard (Diao 76), Cheyrou (Diouf 82), Heskey, Owen.
Spartak: Cherchesov, Kovtun (Abramidze 63), Kebe, Beschastnykh, Kalynychenko, Koudriashov (Marcello Silva 50), Danishevski, Pavlenko, Mitreski, Khlestov (Bezrodny 26), Moisés.

• The English side also prevailed 3-1 in Moscow, recovering from Aleksandr Danishevski's opener to take the points courtesy of a Michael Owen hat-trick. That matchday four result confirmed Spartak's elimination – they would lose all six games – while Liverpool also failed to progress after coming third in Group B.

• That was in contrast to the teams' meeting in the 1992/93 European Cup Winners' Cup second round, when Spartak advanced 6-2 on aggregate. Valery Karpin struck twice in a 4-2 first-leg home win, before unanswered goals in the last half-hour at Anfield from Dmitri Radchenko and Andrei Piatnitsky sealed Spartak's progress.

Match background

• That defeat by Spartak – in what was their first encounter with Russian opponents – is Liverpool's only home loss against a club from that country; their record is W3 D2 L1. Most recently they drew 1-1 at home to FC Rubin in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League group stage (also winning 1-0 away). 

• Jürgen Klopp's side have picked up four points at home in this season's competition, drawing 2-2 with Sevilla before a 3-0 scalp of Maribor

• Before being held by Sevilla, Liverpool's previous six European games at Anfield had produced a home win. They are unbeaten in their last 12 European home matches (W8 D4), since a 3-0 loss to Real Madrid CF on 22 October 2014.

• Five-time European champions Liverpool did not take part in UEFA competition in 2016/17, when they finished fourth in the Premier League. They are bidding to reach the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds for the first time since 2008/09.

• The Reds earned their place in the group stage – for the tenth time overall – with a 6-3 play-off aggregate victory over TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, winning 2-1 away and 4-2 at home.

• Spartak have not won away in Europe since a 1-0 success at AFC Ajax in their 2010/11 UEFA Europa League round of 16 first leg. Their record since reads D5 L5.

• Including that 1992 victory at Anfield, Spartak have won on four of their nine trips to England (D1 L4), most recently a 1-0 triumph at Blackburn Rovers FC in the 1995/96 group stage. Their away record since then is D1 L4; their last trip brought a 4-1 defeat at Chelsea FC in the 2010/11 group stage. 

• The Russian club are yet to win away in Group E, however, opening with a 1-1 draw at Maribor before a 2-1 reverse at Sevilla on matchday four.

• A 5-1 home win against Sevilla on matchday three halted Spartak's nine-game run without a victory in European fixtures, home and away, since a 2-1 success over SL Benfica on 23 October 2012. Their record since then was D4 L5.

• This is Spartak's 12th group stage campaign, and first since 2012/13 when they came fourth in a section also including FC Barcelona, Benfica and Celtic FC. They have not graced the last 16 since 2000/01, when they got to the second group stage.

• The Moscow club qualified automatically for the group stage by lifting their 22nd league title in 2016/17. Last term, their European campaign ended at the first hurdle, with defeat by AEK Larnaca FC in the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round.

Coach and player links
• Klopp was in charge of the Borussia Dortmund team that beat FC Zenit 5-4 on aggregate in the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (4-2 away, 1-2 home).

• James Milner's goal helped Manchester City FC to a 2-2 draw at PFC CSKA Moskva in the 2014/15 group stage.

• Simon Mignolet was in goal for Belgium in a 3-3 friendly draw away to Russia in March 2017. Dmitri Kombarov, Denis Glushakov, Aleksandr Samedov and Roman Zobnin played for the hosts in Sochi.

• Emre Can was part of Germany's victorious 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup squad in Russia.

• International team-mates:
Georginio Wijnaldum & Quincy Promes (Netherlands)
Dejan Lovren & Mario Pašalić (Croatia)
Marko Grujić & Marko Petković (Serbia)
Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino & Fernando, Luiz Adriano (Brazil)

Head coach Only this chapter

Jürgen Klopp

Date of birth: 16 June 1967
Nationality: German
Playing career: SV Glatten, TuS Ergenzingen, 1. FC Pforzheim, Eintracht Frankfurt, Viktoria Sindlingen, Rot-Weiss Frankfurt, 1. FSV Mainz 05
Coaching career: 1. FSV Mainz 05, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool FC

• Having spent his early career in the lower leagues and failed to break into Eintracht's first team, Klopp turned professional with Mainz, starting off as a striker before becoming a no-nonsense defender. Never played in the top flight but made 325 second-division appearances from 1990 to 2001, setting a club record by scoring 52 goals.

• 'Kloppo', as he is known in Germany, was appointed Mainz's caretaker coach on 28 February 2001, helping the club avoid relegation to the third tier. Duly won a permanent contract and built Mainz into one of the strongest clubs in the 2. Bundesliga; narrowly missed out on promotion in 2002 and 2003 before finally taking Mainz into the top flight for the first time in 2004 and kept them in the Bundesliga until 2007, taking them into the 2005/06 UEFA Cup via the UEFA Fair Play ranking.

• After another promotion near-miss in 2007/08 Klopp – whose enthusiasm and passion, plus work as a TV pundit, have made him popular all over Germany – left for Dortmund. Took them to sixth in his first season, led them into the UEFA Europa League the next year and then, with a squad full of exciting young talent, oversaw league title wins in 2010/11 and 2011/12, adding the German Cup in the latter campaign.

• Earned even greater admiration in 2012/13 as he steered Dortmund all the way to the UEFA Champions League final at Wembley, where they lost to FC Bayern München. Dortmund reached another domestic cup final in 2014, but again came up short against Bayern.

• Announced in April 2015 he was leaving Dortmund after that season, which ended with a cup final defeat against VfL Wolfsburg. Succeeded Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager in October 2015 and took the team to the finals of the English League Cup and UEFA Europa League – helped by a quarter-final defeat of Dortmund – in his first season. Lost both, but earned a place in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League by finishing fourth in the Premier League in May 2017.


Massimo Carrera

Date of birth: 22 April 1964
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: AC Pro Sesto, US Russi, US Alessandria, Pescara Calcio, AS Bari, Juventus, Atalanta BC, SSC Napoli, FC Treviso, FC Pro Vercelli
Coaching career: Juventus (youth, assistant), Italy (assistant), FC Spartak Moskva

• A defender in the Italian lower divisions, he made his Serie A debut in 1989/90 after helping Bari to win promotion. Giovanni Trapattoni brought him to Juventus in 1991 and an impressive first season at right-back for the Bianconeri earned him his only cap for Italy, in a friendly against San Marino.

• Lifted the UEFA Cup in 1993 before becoming a libero when Marcello Lippi was appointed Juve coach in 1994, claiming a league and cup double that season. In 1995/96 he added a UEFA Champions League medal to his collection, although he did not play in the final against AFC Ajax.

• Spent seven seasons at Atalanta and continued to play until he was 44, hanging up his boots after three years in Serie C2 with Pro Vercelli. Appointed Juventus youth-team coordinator in 2009, three years later he stepped up to the first team to stand in for the suspended Antonio Conte, lifting the Italian Super Cup after his first match in charge.

• Left Juve in 2014, and assisted his former Juventus team-mate Conte during his time as Italy coach; helped the Azzurri to the UEFA EURO 2016 quarter-finals before parting ways with Conte, and going to Spartak.

• Initially assistant to Dmitri Alenichev, within three weeks he was stand-in coach, quickly earning a permanent contract. Spartak went on to win their first Russian title since 2001, with Carrera named as the league's best coach.

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.
