Match background Only this chapter

Borussia Dortmund and Atlético Madrid have already assumed control of Group A, and a win for either on matchday three would put them within sight of a place in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds.

• Both teams have six points having beaten Club Brugge and Monaco. Dortmund hold the advantage with a goal difference of one better than their Spanish opponents.

Previous meetings
• The sides have met in four previous matches, most recently in the 1996/97 UEFA Champions League group stage when each recorded an away victory. Dortmund were 1-0 winners in Spain before a 2-1 Atlético success in Germany; the pair finished level on 13 points, Atlético winning the section ahead of Dortmund on head-to-head record. It was the German club, however, who would go on to lift the trophy that season, beating Juventus in the final; Atlético were eliminated by Ajax in the quarter-finals.

• Dortmund came out on top in the 1965/66 European Cup Winners' Cup quarter-final between the teams, following a 1-1 draw in Spain with a 1-0 home victory. Once again, the German side went on to win the trophy.

Highlights: Dortmund 1-0 Monaco

Form guide
• Lucian Favre's side were 3-0 victors against Monaco in their first home Group A game, on matchday two, having opened the section with a 1-0 win at Club Brugge.

• Fourth in last season's Bundesliga, the German club are in the group stage for the third season running, and the seventh time in eight years – in their 2017/18 campaign they picked up only two points from their six fixtures. They went on to reach the UEFA Europa League round of 16, losing to Salzburg.

• Despite the wins against Club Brugge and Monaco, Dortmund have won only three of their last 13 UEFA Champions League fixtures (D3 L7).

• The German club picked up only one point at home in last season's group stage, and were without a win in four UEFA Champions League matches in Dortmund (D1 L3) before beating Monaco.

• The 3-2 home win against Atalanta in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 first leg was Dortmund's only European victory last season; they have now won two of their last seven European home matches (D1 L4).

• Dortmund's record at home to Spanish clubs is W7 D4 L3 – one of those defeats coming in the most recent encounter, Real Madrid's 3-1 success in last season's UEFA Champions League group stage. That ended Dortmund's five-match unbeaten run (W4 D1) at home to Spanish clubs.

• BVB's last eight games against Spanish sides have all pitted them against Real Madrid; they won only two of those contests, and none of the last four (D2 L2).

See Atlético make it two wins from two

• Diego Simeone's side were 3-1 winners at home to Club Brugge on matchday two having won their opening fixture at Monaco 2-1.

• Those results mean Atlético have won their last five European games, and have lost only one of their last 16 matches in continental competition (W11 D4).

• Atlético have lost only one of their last eight European away games, winning three.

• A 4-2 win at Bayer Leverkusen in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg ended Atlético's three-match losing run in Germany.

• UEFA Champions League finalists in 2014 and 2016, and semi-finalists two seasons ago, Atlético won only one game in the 2017/18 competition, drawing four including all three away, to finish behind Roma and Chelsea in their section.

• However, Los Rojiblancos then moved into the UEFA Europa League, winning their first five matches. They lost only one of nine overall and defeated Marseille 3-0 in the Lyon final.

• Atlético have already lifted European silverware this season, beating Real Madrid 4-2 in August's UEFA Super Cup in Tallinn – making them the first team to win the competition on their first three appearances.

• The Rojiblancos have reached two UEFA Champions League and three UEFA Europa League finals in the last nine seasons.

Links and trivia
• Atlético's Thomas Lemar provided three assists in Monaco's 6-3 aggregate win against Dortmund in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. Shinji Kagawa and Marco Reus were among the German club's scorers.

• Have played in Spain:
Paco Alcácer (Valencia 2009–16, Getafe 2012/13 loan, Barcelona 2016–18)
Sergio Gómez (Barcelona 2017/18)
Achraf Hakimi (Real Madrid 2016–18)

• International team-mates:
Raphäel Guerreiro & Gelson Martins (Portugal)
Paco Alcácer & Saúl Ñíguez, Koke, Diego Costa, Rodri, Juanfran, Vitolo (Spain)

Latest news

• Dortmund have won all five games at home in 2018/19, scoring 21 goals and conceding five.

• Paco Alcácer, who hit a hat-trick in the 4-3 defeat of Augsburg on 6 October and was on target again in Stuttgart, has scored seven goals in his first four Bundesliga matches, in only 129 minutes of playing time – a competition record.

• Marco Reus has five goals in his last five games, including one on Saturday.

• Substitute Mario Götze scored in his first Bundesliga game this season against Augsburg – his first goal for BVB since February.

• On 26 September Dortmund earned their biggest Bundesliga win in 32 years, beating Nürnberg 7-0.

• Alcácer marked his first international appearances since March 2016 with two goals in Spain's 4-1 friendly win in Wales on 11 October and one in the UEFA Nations League defeat by England four days later.

• Jadon Sancho made his international debut in England's goalless UEFA Nations League draw away to Croatia on 12 October.

• Reus missed Germany's UEFA Nations League games away to the Netherlands and in France due to knee problems. Roman Bürki (groin) and Manuel Akanji (hip) sat out Switzerland's matches against Belgium and Iceland, although Reus and Bürki recovered to start the weekend; Akanji is expected to be out for three weeks.

• Marius Wolf and Raphaël Guerreiro (muscular injuries), Shinji Kagawa (ankle) and Marcel Schmelzer (knee) are all sidelined. Łukasz Piszczek and Christian Pulišić recovered from their own muscle problems to feature at Stuttgart, the latter as a substitute.

• Ömer Toprak has not played this season due to a thigh injury although he was an unused substitute at Stuttgart.

• Diego Costa scored twice in Atlético's 4-2 extra-time defeat of Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup in Tallinn on 15 August. Saúl Ñíguez and Koke were also on target.

• Costa has scored three goals in three UEFA club competition appearances this season, but he has not found the net in domestic football since striking against Sevilla on 25 February. He has since scored five goals in Europe.

• Five points from four matches this season represented Atlético's worst start to a Liga campaign under Diego Simeone. They have, however, won three of their last five league fixtures, although they were held 1-1 at Villarreal on Saturday.

• Filip Luís scored the Atlético goal at the weekend, his first since December 2017.

• Antoine Griezmann scored both goals in France's 2-1 comeback win against Germany in the UEFA Nations League on 16 October.

• Stefan Savić (calf) has been out since 10 September, while Vitolo sprained a knee in the 1-1 draw at Valencia on 20 August and has not played since, although the latter was an unused substitute at Villarreal.

• Diego Costa (hamstring) has been out since matchday two, as had José María Giménez with a similar problem before returning at the weekend.

Head coach Only this chapter

Lucien Favre

Date of birth: 2 November 1957
Nationality: Swiss
Playing career: Oulens, Lausanne, Neuchâtel Xamax, Servette (twice), Toulouse
Coaching career: Echallens (youth), Echallens, Yverdon-Sport, Servette, Zürich, Hertha Berlin, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Nice, Borussia Dortmund

• Capped 24 times by Switzerland, Favre was a playmaker during his playing days, with his career blighted by a persistent knee injury. Nevertheless, he won the 1985 Swiss league with Servette, two years after being voted Footballer of the Year.

• During his first stint as a coach he guided Echallens into the second tier for the first time in their history, before winning promotion to the top flight at his new club Yverdon. In 2001 he won the Swiss Cup with Servette, also guiding the club to the UEFA Cup fourth round, and joined Zürich in spring 2003, winning the Swiss Cup (2005) as well as back-to-back league titles in 2006 and 2007, being voted Swiss coach of the year two years running.

• In summer 2007, he left for Germany to join Hertha, unexpectedly guiding the capital side to fourth place in 2008/09. He was voted coach of the year in Germany after that term, but left his post in September.

• Took over at Gladbach in February 2011 and guided them to safety via the relegation play-offs before finishing fourth the next season to return the club to Europe after 16 years. In 2014/15, a third-placed finish in the Bundesliga earned Gladbach a UEFA Champions League group stage place and Favre Germany's coach of the year award for a second time.

• Resigned in September 2015 and took over at French side Nice the following May, overseeing a third-placed finish in 2016/17. Returned to Germany to take charge of Dortmund in May 2018.

Nationality: Argentinian
Playing career: Vélez Sarsfield, Pisa, Sevilla, Atlético Madrid (twice), Internazionale Milano, Lazio, Racing Club
Coaching career: Racing Club (twice), Estudiantes, River Plate, San Lorenzo, Catania, Atlético Madrid

• Launched career as a combative midfielder with Vélez Sarsfield and was a full Argentinian international at 18, making debut in a July 1988 friendly against Australia; went on to play in three FIFA World Cups and retired as Argentina's most-capped player (106 appearances, 11 goals). Moved to Italy in 1990 to join Pisa; two years later he left for Sevilla, where he played under Argentina's 1986 World Cup-winning coach Carlos Bilardo and – for one season – alongside Diego Maradona.

• 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.

• Started coaching career with Racing Club and won Argentinian titles with Estudiantes (2006 Apertura) and River Plate (2008 Clausura); brief spells at San Lorenzo, Italian club Catania and Racing (again) preceded his appointment in December 2011 at Atlético.

• Led Atlético to victory in the 2012 UEFA Europa League final against Athletic Club and to a Copa del Rey final triumph over Real Madrid in 2013. A year later, Atlético held off 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, which they again lost to Madrid, but collected more silverware two years later with another UEFA Europa League triumph and followed up by finally getting the better of Madrid in Europe with victory in the UEFA Super Cup.

Competition facts Only this chapter

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.
