Match background Only this chapter

PSV Eindhoven and Tottenham have both been unable to get off the mark so far in Group B, and a third failure to get points on the board would leave their UEFA Champions League hopes hanging by a thread.

• Both teams have been beaten by Barcelona and Internazionale, who each have six points in the standings – six more than PSV and Tottenham.

Previous meetings
• The sides have met in only one previous tie, in the last 16 of the 2007/08 UEFA Cup. Each won 1-0 away, PSV emerging triumphant in London before Spurs turned the tables in Eindhoven – but it was the Dutch club who had the last laugh, going through 6-5 on penalties.

Form guide
• The Eredivisie champions were beaten 2-1 at home by Inter on matchday two, having gone down 4-0 at Barcelona in their opening Group B fixture – their joint heaviest UEFA Champions League defeat.

• The Eindhoven club claimed their 24th Dutch league title in 2017/18 – the third time in four seasons they have lifted the Eredivisie crown.

• This is PSV's 16th season in the group stage – more than any other Dutch side. They qualified by beating Belarusian champions BATE Borisov 6-2 on aggregate in the play-offs (3-2 away, 3-0 home).

Highlights: PSV 1-2 Internazionale

• The Eindhoven club failed to win a game in their last group appearance, in 2016/17 (D2 L4), and have not won in their last ten UEFA Champions League fixtures, group stage to final (D4 L6).

• PSV's last home win in the competition proper was a 2-1 defeat of CSKA Moskva in December 2015. They won all three home games in that 2015/16 group stage; their record since then is D2 L3 with just two goals scored.

• PSV's 2017/18 European campaign lasted only one tie – they lost 1-0 home and away to Croatian club Osijek in the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round.

•  European Cup winners in 1988, PSV have reached the UEFA Champions League knockout stage only four times – most recently in 2015/16, when they got to the last 16.

• PSV were victorious the last time an English club visited, beating Manchester United 2-1 in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League group stage. However, they have won only two of their last ten fixtures against Premier League visitors in Eindhoven (D4 L4).

• Spurs followed their opening 2-1 defeat at Inter – when they had led until the 86th minute – with a 4-2 loss at home to Barça on matchday two, their heaviest home defeat in the UEFA Champions League and joint heaviest in Europe.

• Third in last season's Premier League, Tottenham are in the group stage for the fourth time – and the third season in a row.

• Spurs got to the round of 16 in 2017/18, losing to Juventus. Tottenham drew the away first leg 2-2 – having been 2-0 down – but went out after a 2-1 reverse at Wembley. Defeats in their first two games this season mean they are without a win in four European fixtures, losing the last three.

Watch Tottenham's home defeat by Barcelona

• Mauricio Pochettino's side picked up seven points on their travels in last season's group stage, finishing top of their section ahead of eventual champions Real Madrid.

• The London club are unbeaten in their last three trips to the Netherlands, most recently drawing 3-3 at Twente in the 2010/11 group stage.

• Overall, Spurs' record away to Dutch clubs is W5 D1 L2. One of those defeats came against Feyenoord in the 1973/74 UEFA Cup final, the Rotterdam outfit winning 2-0 in the home second leg and 4-2 on aggregate.

• Tottenham's most successful UEFA Champions League campaign came in 2010/11, when they reached the quarter-finals.

Links and trivia
• PSV coach Mark van Bommel and Spurs boss Pochettino were both Barcelona-based in 2005/06, playing for Barcelona and Espanyol respectively.

• Van Bommel scored the Netherlands' opening goal in a 2-0 friendly win against England at Spurs' old White Hart Lane ground on 15 August 2001.

• Have played in England:
Angeliño (Manchester City youth teams 2013–18)
Donyell Malen (Arsenal youth teams 2015–17)
Luuk de Jong (Newcastle 2013/14)

• Jeroen Zoet was in goal as the Netherlands beat England 2-1 in a Wembley friendly in March 2016; Danny Rose and substitutes Harry Kane, Eric Dier and Dele Alli featured for the home side.

• Denzel Dumfries, Steven Bergwijn, Luuk De Jong and substitute Pablo Rosario – the latter making his international debut – were in the Netherlands side that drew 1-1 with Toby Alderweireld's Belgium in a Brussels friendly on 16 October.

Head coach Only this chapter

Mark van Bommel

Date of birth: 22 April 1977
Nationality: Dutch
Playing career: Fortuna Sittard, PSV Eindhoven (twice), Barcelona, Bayern München, AC Milan
Coaching career: Netherlands Under-17s (assistant), Saudi Arabia (assistant), PSV Eindhoven (youth), Australia (assistant), PSV Eindhoven

• Born in the province of Limburg in south-east Netherlands, Van Bommel spent seven seasons with local club Fortuna Sittard, making his debut at 16, before joining PSV in 1999, when he was named Dutch talent of the year.

• The tough-tackling midfielder won the Eredivisie title in his first two seasons, skippering PSV to the second of those triumphs and two further titles, the second of which, in 2004/05, was accompanied by victory in the Dutch Cup, a run to the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League and his election as Dutch footballer of the year for the second time.

• In 2005 joined Frank Rijkaard's Barcelona and helped the Catalan club win the Liga and UEFA Champions League in his only season before leaving for Bayern. Won German league and cup doubles in 2007/08 and 2009/10, Bayern reaching the UEFA Champions League final in the latter campaign, before he moved to AC Milan, where he was a Serie A champion in 2011, claiming his eighth league title in 12 years.

• Ended his playing career in 2013 following a season back at PSV – he was sent off in his final appearance – having won 79 caps for the Netherlands, appearing at the FIFA World Cup in 2006 and 2010, the latter under Bert van Marwijk – Van Bommel's father-in-law – when the Dutch reached the final. Retired from international football after captaining the side at UEFA EURO 2012.

• Started his coaching career in January 2014 as assistant to Maarten Stekelenburg with the Netherlands' Under-17 side, before two years working alongside Van Marwijk with the Saudi Arabia national side. Took charge of PSV's U19 side in April 2017 and, after acting as Van Marwijk's assistant with Australia at the 2018 World Cup, succeeded Phillip Cocu as PSV head coach that June.


Mauricio Pochettino

Date of birth: 2 March 1972
Nationality: Argentinian
Playing career: Newell's Old Boys, Espanyol (three times), Paris Saint-Germain, Bordeaux
Coaching career: Espanyol, Southampton, Tottenham

• A tough-tackling central defender, Pochettino was a product of Newell's Old Boys in Argentina where he briefly played with the legendary Diego Maradona during his five years in the senior squad.

• He moved to Europe in 1994 to join Spanish side Espanyol and won the Copa del Rey in 2000, before joining Paris in January 2001. After a stint at Bordeaux, returned to Espanyol, initially on loan, before hanging up his boots in 2006 having won another Copa del Rey. Capped 20 times by Argentina, appearing in the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

• Switched to coaching with Espanyol in January 2009, with the club lying third from bottom in the Spanish Liga; guided them to a tenth-placed finish. Under Pochettino, three further mid-table finishes followed before a slow start to 2012/13 prompted his departure.

• Surprisingly resurfaced in England at Southampton in January 2013, succeeding Nigel Adkins; introduced a high-pressing, attacking style which helped the club keep clear of relegation trouble. In his first full season in charge, took Saints to eighth position with 56 points – a new club record.

• Appointed Tottenham manager on a five-year contract in May 2014, and led the side to the English League Cup final in his debut campaign, only to lose out to Chelsea. The following season, 2015/16, Pochettino's side were in contention to win the club's first league title since 1961 until a draw at Chelsea with two games to go; nevertheless finished third to book a UEFA Champions League return, and finished a place higher, as Premier League runners-up, in 2016/17, before claiming third spot again the following season.

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.
