Match background Only this chapter

One of European football's most enduring – and even – rivalries is renewed for a first time in more than 15 years as Manchester United welcome Juventus to Old Trafford.

• Perennial UEFA Champions League rivals around the turn of the century, Juventus travel to England with the upper hand in Group H having won both their games so far to collect six points, two more than their second-placed opponents.

Previous meetings
• The last of the sides' 12 past contests came in the 2002/03 second group stage, when United won both games – 2-1 in Manchester and 3-0 in Turin. Both sides would progress to the quarter-finals, but while that was where United's campaign ended, Juve went all the way to the final, losing on penalties to AC Milan back at Old Trafford.

• United have won the last three matches between the clubs – a run that started with a famous comeback in the semi-final second leg of their victorious 1998/99 campaign. After a 1-1 draw in England, Juve looked set to reach the final thanks to Filippo Inzaghi's early double in Turin, but United hit back to win 3-2 on the night and 4-3 on aggregate, going on to beat Bayern München in dramatic circumstances in the final.

• The teams met eight times between 1996 and 2003, all in the UEFA Champions League. Juventus won three of the first four in that sequence (L1) but none of the last four (D1 L3).

• Overall the sides have each won five matches, with two draws – each scoring 15 goals.

Highlights: Manchester United 0-0 Valencia

Form guide
Manchester United
• Having eased to a 3-0 victory at debutants Young Boys on matchday one, United were held to a goalless home draw by Valencia in their second fixture.

• Second in last season's Premier League, United are in the group stage for the second year running and the 22nd time overall – fewer only than the 23 participations of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Porto.

• José Mourinho's side finished top of their section in 2017/18 ahead of Basel, CSKA Moskva and Benfica, but then bowed out in the first knockout round, losing 2-1 on aggregate to Sevilla (0-0 away, 1-2 home) in the last 16.

• The Red Devils have lost only three of their last 22 European matches, home and away (W14 D5).

• United won all three home games in last season's group stage; the Sevilla loss ended a 21-match unbeaten run in Europe at Old Trafford (W17 D4), since a 2-1 reverse against Real Madrid in the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg.

• The English club have won all their last five home matches against Italian visitors – most recently a 4-0 defeat of AC Milan in the 2009/10 UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg – keeping clean sheets in the last four. United are unbeaten in their last eight matches with Serie A clubs, home and away (W6 D2).

Watch Dybala's hat-trick on matchday two

• The Bianconeri are still to concede in Group H having won both games; they overcame the first-half dismissal of former United forward Cristiano Ronaldo to win 2-0 at Valencia on matchday one, Miralem Pjanić scoring both goals from the penalty spot. A Paulo Dybala hat-trick sealed a 3-0 defeat of Young Boys in Turin last time out.

• Juventus claimed their seventh successive Serie A title in 2017/18, and are in the UEFA Champions League group stage for the 19th time overall. They last failed to reach the round of 16 in 2013/14.

• In last season's UEFA Champions League, Juve finished second to Barcelona in their section before ousting Tottenham in the round of 16 (2-2 home, 2-1 away). Their season looked to be over when they went down 3-0 at home to Real Madrid in the quarter-final first leg – a repeat of the 2017 final, won 4-1 by the Spanish side – only for Juve to score three times in the return. Ronaldo, however, had the last word against his current club, converting a penalty deep into added time to end Juve's campaign.

• Juventus kicked off their 2017/18 UEFA Champions League campaign with a 3-0 defeat at Barcelona but are unbeaten in five away games since, winning the last four.

• Juve are on an eight-match (W4 D4) unbeaten run against Premier League clubs, winning four of the last five. The victory at Tottenham last season extended their away run without defeat to four matches (W2 D2); Juve had lost their previous seven games in England.

• Winners in 1985 and 1996, Juventus have played in nine European Cup finals – losing a record seven, including all of their last five.

Links and trivia
• Cristiano Ronaldo was a Manchester United player between 2003 and 2009, scoring in the club's victory in the 2008 UEFA Champions League final – although he also had a penalty saved in the shoot-out. He won three Premier League titles, the FA Cup and two English League Cups, scoring 118 goals in 292 appearances for United.

• Paul Pogba left United for Juventus in 2012, returning to Manchester in 2016. He scored 28 goals in 124 Serie A games for Juve, winning the Scudetto in each of his four seasons and appearing in the 2015 UEFA Champions League final.

• José Mourinho was coach of Internazionale Milano between 2008 and 2010, winning two Serie A titles and the UEFA Champions League in 2009/10 to complete the treble. His record against Juve as Inter coach was W3 D1 L1.

The next year they retained their league title and claimed the UEFA Champions League with a 3-0 defeat of Monaco in Gelsenkirchen.

• Joined Chelsea in 2004 and led the club to the League Cup and their first league championship for 50 years in his first season. Followed up with the league title again in 2006, and both the League Cup and FA Cup in 2007 but left the club that September.

• Took over at Inter in June 2008 and in his first campaign retained the Scudetto, a feat the Nerazzurri repeated in 2009/10 when they also added the Coppa Italia and the UEFA Champions League title, their first European Cup since 1965.

• Victory at the Santiago Bernabéu was Mourinho's last act as Inter coach before he joined Real Madrid. His first season featured the club's first Copa del Rey victory in 18 years and his second brought the Liga title; also led Madrid to three successive UEFA Champions League semi-finals before returning to Chelsea at the start of June 2013.

• Won a third Premier League title with the London club in 2015, also adding the English League Cup. Left in December 2015 and appointed Manchester United manager the following summer, leading the club to the League Cup and the UEFA Europa League in his first season in charge.


Massimiliano Allegri

Date of birth: 11 August 1967
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: Cuoiopelli, Livorno (twice), Pisa, Pavia, Pescara (twice), Cagliari, Perugia, Padova, Napoli, Pistoiese, Aglianese
Coaching career:
Aglianese, SPAL, Grosseto, Sassuolo, Cagliari, AC Milan, Juventus

• A creative attacking midfielder, Allegri started out in his native Tuscany with Cuoiopelli and then Livorno, his hometown club. First appeared in Serie A for Pisa against Milan in 1988/89 but played only twice that season before heading back to Livorno.

• Returned to Serie A after helping Pescara win promotion in 1992. The following term he scored 12 goals under Giovanni Galeone, the coach Allegri still considers his mentor. After leaving Pescara in 1993, had spells at Cagliari, Perugia, Padova and Napoli before hanging up his boots back in Tuscany with fourth division Aglianese in 2003.

• Moved straight into coaching at Aglianese, prior to taking charge at SPAL and Grosseto. In November 2008 he won the Panchina d'Oro (golden bench) as the third division's best coach having led Sassuolo to promotion.

• Had earlier been appointed by Cagliari whom he led to ninth place in 2009, winning the Panchina d'Oro again, this time as Serie A's best coach. A bad run of results the following season prompted Allegri's dismissal on 13 April 2010 – although he had already done enough to earn a two-year contract at Milan.

• Allegri's first season at San Siro ended with his new club winning the Scudetto for the first time since 2004. Dismissed in January 2014 with Milan 11th in Serie A, that summer he was appointed to succeed Antonio Conte at Juventus. Allegri won the Scudetto and the Coppa Italia with Juventus in his first season, also taking his side to the final of the UEFA Champions League, and added further domestic doubles in 2015/16, 2016/17 – when they again reached the UEFA Champions League final – and 2017/18.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• 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 defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with AC 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.

• Real Madrid then made it three wins in a row in 2017/18, becoming the fourth club to win three or more successive titles in European Cup history, and the first to do it twice.

• 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.

Group stage
• Barcelona have finished as group winners on 19 occasions, four more than Real Madrid and Manchester United and five more than 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).

• Twenty teams have gone through a UEFA Champions League group stage without picking up a single point, most recently Benfica in 2017/18.

• In 2017/18, Paris Saint-Germain set a new group stage record by scoring 25 goals, with Liverpool (23) also eclipsing the old mark of 21 set by Borussia Dortmund in 2016/17. Manchester United (1998/99), Barcelona (2011/12, 2016/17) and Real Madrid (2013/14) all managed 20.

• 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 group stage 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 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), Paris Saint-Germain (2015/16) and Barcelona (2017/18) all let in just one.

• Before their 3-1 win against Sporting CP 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.

• 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. Dinamo Zagreb are next with 11 consecutive losses on two occasions, from September 2011 to November 2012 and ongoing since September 2015.

• The lowest total for a team qualifying from the group stage is six points: Zenit in 2013/14 and 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 (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 Cluj (both 2012/13), Benfica (2013/14) and Porto (2015/16) all missed out with ten points.

Goalscoring records
• 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 on matchday six in 2015/16.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, eclipsing his own mark of nine in 2013/14, which Luiz Adriano matched in 2014/15 and Ronaldo himself equalled in 2017/18. 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 against PSV Eindhoven on matchday one of the 2018/19 competition was his eighth in the competition, one more than Ronaldo.

Oldest and youngest players
• 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.
