Match background Only this chapter

Galatasaray will look for a repeat of their last dominant home performance as they welcome Schalke to Istanbul with the race to qualify from Group D starting to hot up.

• The Turkish team are on three points having won their first home match but lost away last time out, and trail Schalke – and Porto – by a point. The German club picked up an away win in their most recent fixture despite leaving it late.

Previous meetings
• Galatasaray came out on top when the teams met in the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League round of 16. A 1-1 draw in Istanbul left the tie in the balance, but the Turkish side – coached then, as now, by Fatih Terim – progressed to the last eight thanks to a 3-2 success in Gelsenkirchen, Umut Bulut scoring the winner deep into added time. Galatasaray went on to lose to Real Madrid in the quarter-finals.

• Selçuk İnan set up three of Galatasaray's four goals in that tie, including the one in the home first leg, while Fernando Muslera also played in both legs.

Highlights: Porto 1-0 Galatasaray

Form guide
• Having opened with an impressive 3-0 defeat of Lokomotiv Moskva, Galatasaray's momentum was checked by a 1-0 loss at Porto in their second fixture.

• The win against Loko ended a run of three successive home 1-1 draws in Europe for Galatasaray, who have nevertheless won only two of their last ten continental fixtures in Istanbul, drawing five.

• Turkish champions in 2017/18, Galatasaray last reached the UEFA Champions League round of 16 in 2013/14.

• Galatasaray are in the group stage for the 15th time – the same number as all other Turkish teams combined.

• The Istanbul club's 2017/18 European campaign lasted only one tie – they lost 3-1 on aggregate to Swedish club Östersund in the UEFA Europa League second qualifying round.

• Cimbom's last home game against Bundesliga visitors ended in a 4-0 UEFA Champions League group stage defeat by Borussia Dortmund in October 2014. The Turkish team have not won in their last seven home games against German clubs (D4 L3) – a run lasting 26 years.

• Galatasaray are the only team from Turkey to have reached a European Cup semi-final, in 1989.

Watch Schalke snatch three points on matchday two

• An 88th-minute goal from Weston McKennie earned Schalke a 1-0 win at Lokomotiv Moskva last time out, the German club' having been held 1-1 at home by Porto in their first Group D fixture.

• Schalke have won their last three away UEFA Champions League fixtures, including a remarkable 4-3 success at Real Madrid in the 2014/15 round of 16 second leg – although they were eliminated 5-4 on aggregate.

• Die Königsblauen have lost only two of their last 13 away European engagements (W8 D3).

• Bundesliga runners-up in 2017/18 – their highest league placing since 2009/10 – this is Schalke's first UEFA Champions League group campaign since 2014/15, their third successive appearance.

• The German club did not take part in European competition last season, having reached the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals in 2016/17, where they lost to eventual runners-up Ajax.

• Semi-finalists in 2011, Schalke's last three UEFA Champions League campaigns have all ended in the round of 16.

• Schalke have drawn all three of their away games against Turkish clubs, sharing 3-3 draws with both Trabzonspor and Fenerbahçe prior to the 2013 game at Galatasaray that ended 1-1.

Head coach Only this chapter

Fatih Terim

Date of birth: 4 September 1953
Nationality: Turkish
Playing career: Adana Demirspor, Galatasaray
Coaching career: Ankaragücü, Göztepe, Turkey Under-21s, Turkey (three times), Galatasaray (four times), Fiorentina, Milan

• A central defender, Terim represented Galatasaray for over a decade, winning three Turkish caps, and played 51 games for Turkey, 32 as captain. Began his coaching career with Ankaragücü and Göztepe, before being named assistant to national team boss Sepp Piontek and put in charge of the U21s in 1990.

• Appointed Turkey coach in 1993, Terim led them to EURO '96. They lost all their matches in England, but just getting to the final tournament, Turkey's first since the 1954 FIFA World Cup, was a major landmark.

• Returned to Galatasaray after the EURO, winning four league titles, two domestic cups and the 2000 UEFA Cup. Serie A came calling and Terim took the helm at Fiorentina and Milan before rejoining Galatasaray; however, a run of disappointing results brought about a temporary retirement in 2004.

• Reappointed Turkey coach in 2005, Terim – known as 'İmparator' (The Emperor) for his leadership skills – steered them to the UEFA EURO 2008 semi-finals but could not guide them to the World Cup in either 2006 or 2010, the latter prompting his departure.

• Back for a third spell as Galatasaray boss in July 2011, in his first season he inspired Cimbom to their first Süper Lig crown in four years. Repeated the feat in 2013 when also helping Galatasaray to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. Named head of the national team for a third time – on a part-time basis – in August 2013, he parted company with Galatasaray a month later to assume the role full time. Was unable to lead Turkey to the 2014 World Cup, but did take them to UEFA EURO 2016. Took over at Galatasaray once again in December 2017, ending that season with another league title – his seventh with the club as head coach.


Domenico Tedesco

Date of birth: 12 September 1985
Nationality: Italian
Coaching career: Stuttgart (youth), Hoffenheim (youth), Erzgebirge Aue, Schalke

• Tedesco, who moved to Germany with his family at the age of two after being born in the Italian town of Rossano, represented ASV Aichwald in the German lower leagues during an unheralded playing career.

• He joined Stuttgart in 2008, initially working in the club's youth section as assistant to Thomas Schneider while also studying for a bachelor's degree in business engineering; he also holds a master's in innovation management.

• Left Stuttgart at the end of 2014/15 to take up a post of coach of Hoffenheim's youth team, being promoted to the Under-19s two years later.

• On March 8 2017 Tedesco was hired by 2. Bundesliga side FC Erzgebirge Aue, then bottom of the league with only 11 matches remaining; unbeaten in his first five fixtures, winning four of them, he picked up 20 points of the 33 available to steer the club to safety.

• That earned Tedesco a two-year deal with Schalke in June 2017 to succeed Markus Weinzierl as coach, and he guided the club to second place in the Bundesliga in his first season to earn a place in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League.

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.
