Match background Only this chapter

Lokomotiv Moskva know another Group D defeat would leave their UEFA Champions League hopes in the balance as they welcome Porto, who are looking to build on a solid start to the 2018/19 competition.

• The Portuguese side are joint top of the section on four points, level with Schalke and one ahead of Galatasaray. Loko are fourth, having lost both their first two games without scoring, and will be looking for rapid improvement in their first meeting with Porto.

Form guide
• A late goal gave Schalke a 1-0 win in Moscow on matchday two, inflicting a second successive loss on Lokomotiv, who had gone down 3-0 at Galatasaray in their first fixture.

• The Schalke defeat ended Lokomotiv's four-match unbeaten run at home in UEFA Champions League matches, group stage to final –since a 1-0 loss to Real Madrid in March 2003 – and a three-game home winning streak in the competition proper.

• Lokomotiv have won only four of their last 11 European fixtures in Moscow, losing five.

Highlights: Lokomotiv Moskva 0-1 Schalke

• Russian champions last season for the first time since 2004, Lokomotiv are in the group stage for the fourth time, having not featured since 2003/04 – their third successive appearance – when they reached the round of 16.

• The Moscow club have qualified from their group on their last two appearances.

• In 2017/18, Lokomotiv began in the UEFA Europa League group stage, beating Nice in the round of 32 before suffering an 8-1 aggregate loss against eventual champions Atlético Madrid in the last 16.

• Lokomotiv's last game against Portuguese opponents was a 4-2 loss to Sporting CP in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League group stage – giving them a record of W1 L2 at home to visitors from Portugal.

• Held 1-1 at Schalke in their opening fixture, Porto edged to a 1-0 win at home against Galatasaray last time out.

• Porto are in the UEFA Champions League for the 23rd season – the joint highest total ever alongside Real Madrid and Barcelona.

• Porto have reached the round of 16 in the last two years, and have qualified from the group three times in the last four seasons. In 2017/18 they lost 5-0 on aggregate to eventual runners-up Liverpool in the last 16 having been beaten at home by the same scoreline in the first leg.

• Porto have won only one of their last seven European away games (D4 L2), a 3-0 victory at Monaco in last season's group stage. They have drawn the last three.

Watch Porto's matchday two win

• Porto last visited Russia for a 1-1 draw at Zenit in the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League group stage. They won on each of their first four trips but the most recent, a 5-2 victory at Spartak Moskva in the 2010/11 UEFA Europa League quarter-finals, is their sole success in their last five matches against Russian clubs, home and away (D2 L2).

Head coach Only this chapter

Yuri Semin

Date of birth: 11 May 1947
Nationality: Russian
Playing career: Spartak Orel, Spartak Moskva, Dinamo Moskva, Kairat Almaty, Chkalovets Novosibirsk, Lokomotiv Moskva, Kuban Krasnodar
Coaching career: Pamir Dushanbe, Lokomotiv Moskva (four times), Russia, Dinamo Moskva, Dynamo Kyiv (twice), Gabala, Mordovia Saransk, Anzhi

• One of the most successful Russian coaches of recent times, Semin's playing career took off in 1965 when he was invited to join Spartak Moskva after starring for Russia's Under-21 team at a tournament between the Soviet republics.

• After leaving Spartak, Semin – a midfielder or striker – moved to rivals Dinamo where he won the 1970 USSR Cup. Retired due to injury in 1980 while captain of Kuban having played 280 Soviet League games, scoring 39 goals.

• After receiving his coaching licence he started work at Pamir in 1983 but made his name at Lokomotiv, where he spent 19 years until 2005, interrupted by a short break in 1990 when he was an adviser to New Zealand Under-21s.

• His Lokomotiv side won the 2002 and 2004 titles in addition to four Russian Cups, and reached the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup semi-finals in 1998 and 1999. Having twice served as assistant coach, Semin took over as Russia boss in April 2005, but quit six months later.

• Following a spell as Dinamo coach and a stint as Lokomotiv technical director, Semin won a Ukrainian league title as Dynamo Kyiv boss in 2008/09, but left that summer to rejoin Lokomotiv; he was dismissed late the following year, returning to Dynamo within a month. Moved to Azerbaijan at Gabala in 2013 and, after short spells at Mordovia and Anzhi, took charge at Lokomotiv again in August 2016; claimed his fifth Russian Cup with the club in 2016/17 and a third league title the following year.


Sérgio Conceição

Date of birth: 15 November 1974
Nationality: Portuguese
Playing career: Penafiel, Leça, Felgueiras, Porto (twice), Lazio (twice), Parma, Internazionale Milano, Standard Liège, Koweit Qadsia, PAOK
Coaching career: Standard Liège (assistant), Olhanense, Académica de Coimbra, Braga, Vitória SC, Nantes, Porto

• A right winger with an eye for goal, Sérgio Conceição started out in the youth ranks at hometown side Académica and in 1996 joined Porto, where he won two league titles and a Portuguese Cup before leaving for Lazio in 1998. In Rome, he won the 1998/99 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and the UEFA Super Cup the same summer, as well as a Serie A title and a Coppa Italia double in 1999/2000.

• He rejoined Lazio after spells at Parma and Inter. Returned to Porto in 2003/04, winning another Portuguese league title under José Mourinho, before finishing his career with spells in Belgium, Kuwait and Greece. Scored 12 goals in 56 Portugal games, including a celebrated hat-trick in a 3-0 win against defending champions Germany at UEFA EURO 2000.

• After retiring, worked as PAOK's sporting director and Standard's assistant coach before taking charge of Olhanense back in Portugal midway through 2011/12, guiding the relegation-threatened side to a comfortable eighth-placed finish.

• Returned to his home town Coimbra – where a stadium has been named in his honour – to lead Académica in 2013, and then took Braga to the 2014/15 Portuguese Cup final, where they lost to Sporting CP on penalties.

• Led Vitória Guimarães in 2015/16, and then pulled Nantes out of a relegation nosedive in France the following season, a respectable seventh-placed finish prompting Porto to hire him on a two-year contract in summer 2017. Rewarded them with a first league title in five years in 2017/18, when Porto also reached the UEFA Champions League last 16.

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.
