Match background Only this chapter

RB Leipzig could extend their debut European campaign into the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds as they conclude their Group G programme at home to section winners Beşiktaş JK.

• The German club, beaten 2-0 in Istanbul on matchday two, have seven points, level with FC Porto and four behind Beşiktaş. With Porto facing eliminated AS Monaco FC on matchday six, Leipzig must pick up more points than the Portuguese outfit to finish second.

• Beşiktaş will finish as group winners.

Match background

Leipzig
• This is the German side's first home game against Turkish opponents, and just their sixth European fixture overall.

• At home, Leipzig's group record is W1 D1. They opened with a 1-1 draw against Monaco before beating Porto 3-2.

• Leipzig qualified for a first foray into European competition by finishing second in the 2016/17 Bundesliga – in what, remarkably, was their first season in the German top flight.

• Leipzig are the 12th club to represent Germany in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

• On matchday one, the German side became the first team from any country to make their European debut in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

Beşiktaş
• This is the first time Beşiktaş have reached the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds. Their best European Cup campaign came in 1986/87 when they got to the quarter-finals before losing 7-0 on aggregate to FC Dynamo Kyiv.

• The Turkish outfit have won both away games so far in this season's competition, running out 3-1 winners at Porto on matchday one and 2-1 at Monaco.

• Beşiktaş have never won in Germany, where their record is D1 L3, scoring twice on their four visits while conceding six. Their most recent trip brought a 0-0 draw at VfL Wolfsburg in the 2009/10 group stage. 

• Victory at Monaco was Beşiktaş's fifth in their last 11 European away matches (D3 L3).

• In 2016/17, Beşiktaş came third in their group and moved into the UEFA Europa League, where they advanced as far as the quarter-finals before losing on penalties to Olympique Lyonnais.

• 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
• Beşiktaş coach Şenol Güneş encountered West Germany in three UEFA European Championship qualifiers during his time as a goalkeeper. He kept a clean sheet in Turkey's goalless draw in Izmir on 1 April 1979, and suffered a 2-0 away defeat that December. The nations met again in the preliminaries for the 1984 UEFA European Championship, Turkey losing 3-0 in April 1983.

• There are three Germany-born players in the Beşiktaş squad: Cenk Tosun (born in Wetzlar), Tolgay Arslan (Paderborn) and Orkan Çınar (Dortmund).

• Atınç Nukan, who is not in Beşiktaş's UEFA Champions League squad, is on loan from Leipzig.

• Have played in Germany:

• International team-mates:
Bruma & Ricardo Quaresma, Pepe (Portugal)

• Bruma scored Real Sociedad de Fútbol's goal in a 3-1 Liga loss to Pepe's Real Madrid CF in December 2015.

• Álvaro Negredo netted twice in Sevilla FC's 5-1 Spanish Liga victory over Fabio Coltorti's Real Racing Club Santander in May 2010; Adriano was also in the Sevilla team.

• Quaresma and Pepe have twice got the better of Gulásci's Hungary in qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Portugal winning 3-0 at home in March 2017 and 1-0 away on 3 September.

• Stefan Ilsanker and Marcel Sabitzer were in the Austria side that drew 0-0 with Portugal, who included Quaresma and Pepe, in the UEFA EURO 2016 group stage.

Head coach Only this chapter

Ralph Hasenhüttl

Date of birth: 9 August 1967
Nationality: Austrian
Playing career: Grazer AK, FK Austria Wien, SV Austria Salzburg, KV Mechelen, Lierse SK, 1. FC Köln, SpVgg Greuther Fürth, FC Bayern München B
Coaching career: SpVgg Unterhaching (youth), SpVgg Unterhaching, VfR Aalen, FC Ingolstadt 04, RB Leipzig

• A four-time Austrian champion with Austria Wien and Salzburg, Hasenhüttl – who also won the Austrian Cup three times – was a striker who spent two years of his playing career in Belgium and six more in Germany.

• He hung up his boots in 2004 after two years in Bayern's second team and took his first coaching job in southern Munich, working for Unterhaching's youth department. He later got promoted to assistant coach and eventually head coach there. 

• Hasenhüttl pulled off a major coup by taking Ingolstadt into Germany's top division in 2014/15; likened to Jürgen Klopp for his style of relentless and instant pressing after losing possession, he conjured another surprise by escaping relegation the next season with the outsiders.

• Appointed by Leipzig in summer 2016, he proved an instant hit, beginning with a 13-match unbeaten run – their first loss came against Hasenhüttl's former club Ingolstadt.

• The coach, who has a reputation for being very ambitious and persistent, went on to guide the club to the runners-up spot in their first-ever Bundesliga season, earning a place in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage.

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 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.
