Match background Only this chapter

Manchester City have made a strong recovery from matchday one's unexpected home defeat by Lyon and travel to France for the rematch top of Group F – although Lyon are also well placed to progress to the round of 16.

• Goals from Maxwel Cornet (26) and Nabil Fekir (43) earned Lyon victory at the City of Manchester Stadium despite Bernardo Silva's second-half goal for the home side, a winning start to the French side's bid to reach the round of 16 for the first time since 2011/12.

• City have won all three games since then and sit three points clear of Lyon in the standings, with Hoffenheim on three, one more than Shakhtar Donetsk. City – who have reached the round of 16 for the last five seasons – will be through with a draw and will clinch first place with a win. Lyon will be through with a win and a draw will be enough if Hoffenheim-Shakhtar is also drawn due to their better head-to-head record against the German club.

Highlights: Manchester City 1-2 Lyon

Form guide
• After the City win, Lyon recovered from 0-2 down at home to Shakhtar on matchday two to salvage a point. They then drew 3-3 at Hoffenheim before another draw (2-2) at home, the German club scoring an added-time equaliser in both games.

• Those results make it four wins – and only one defeat – in the last eight European matches for Bruno Génésio's side, who have scored two or more goals in each of their last five European fixtures.

• Lyon are in the group stage for the third time in four seasons – their 2015/16 and 2016/17 campaigns both ended at that hurdle.

• In 2017/18, Lyon made it as far as the UEFA Europa League round of 16, but were denied the chance to appear in the final at their own ground as they lost to CSKA Moskva at that stage.

• The 3-2 defeat at home to CSKA ended Lyon's three-game winning run in their own stadium in Europe, and is their only home reverse in 12 European contests (W7 D4), since a 1-0 UEFA Champions League group loss to Juventus in October 2016.

• Les Gones beat Everton twice, including 3-0 at home, in last season's UEFA Europa League group stage, matchday one making it three wins in a row against English clubs. They have lost only one of their last seven matches against Premier League opponents, home and away (W4 D2).

• Lyon were UEFA Champions League semi-finalists in 2010 and are in the group stage for the 15th time – more than any other French club.

Sterling lauds City's strength in depth

Manchester City
• City responded to the Lyon reverse with a 2-1 win at Hoffenheim before Shakhtar were beaten 3-0 away and 6-0 at home – the latter result the Manchester club's biggest win in UEFA club competition.

• Josep Guardiola's side finished 19 points clear in the English Premier League last season, picking up a record 100 points – although there was frustration as their European campaign ended against familiar opponents, domestic rivals Liverpool running out 5-1 aggregate winners in the quarter-final.

• City have won three of their last five European away games, losing the other two.

• The Manchester club picked up six points away from home in last season's group stage, winning at Feyenoord (4-0) and Napoli (4-2) before being beaten at Shakhtar.

• Despite their current run of three successive victories, City have won only four of their last nine European matches, home and away – losing the other five.

• City's best UEFA Champions League performance was reaching the 2015/16 semi-finals; this is their eighth consecutive appearance in the group stage.

• The Citizens have visited France only twice before, drawing 2-2 at Paris Saint-Germain in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals – Kevin De Bruyne and Fernandinho getting the goals – and winning through 3-2 on aggregate. Their last visit brought a 3-1 reverse at Monaco in the 2016/17 round of 16, Leroy Sané on target, and an away-goals defeat after a 6-6 aggregate draw.

Head coach Only this chapter

Bruno Génésio

Date of birth: 1 September 1966
Nationality: French
Playing career: Lyon, Nice (loan), Martigues
Coaching career: Arbresle (youth), Villefranche, Besançon (assistant), Besançon, Lyon (assistant), Lyon

• Lyon-born, he spent the bulk of his playing career as a midfielder with his home-town club, enjoying ten years with Les Gones over two spells. Part of the side that won promotion to Ligue 1 in 1989, Génésio also secured the second division title during his one-year loan stint at Nice in 1993/94.

• Began coaching in 1997, taking charge of local youth team L'Arbresle, near Lyon, before assuming the helm at Villefranche two years later. Hired in 2001, initially as an assistant, Génésio inspired Besançon from the amateur ranks to Ligue 2, but as a head coach suffered relegation twice.

• Joined OL backroom staff in 2006 at the request of head coach Gérard Houllier. Génésio started as a scout, then accepted a position with the reserves and steered them to the French championship. A senior coaching staff role followed under Rémi Garde in 2011.

• Stayed at the Stade de Gerland to work alongside new manager Hubert Fournier when Garde left at the end of the 2014/15 season. He was then appointed head coach on 24 December 2015 following Fournier's departure.

• Guided Lyon from ninth to a second-placed finish following the winter break, clinching a UEFA Champions League group stage berth; although Lyon failed to clear that initial hurdle the following season, they went all the way to the UEFA Europa League semi-finals. Reached the last 16 of the same competition in 2017/18, missing the chance to play in the final at their own OL Stadium; consolation came via third place in Ligue 1, earning a UEFA Champions League return.


Josep Guardiola

Date of birth: 18 January 1971
Nationality: Spanish
Playing career:
Barcelona, Brescia (twice), Roma, Al-Ahly Club, Dorados de Sinola
Coaching career:
Barcelona B, Barcelona, Bayern München, Manchester City

• Known as 'Pep', he came up through Barcelona's youth ranks to win six Spanish Liga titles, one European Champion Clubs' Cup, a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and two Copa del Rey trophies from 1990 to 2001. Also had spells with Brescia, Roma, al-Ahly in Doha and Mexico's Dorados de Sinola before ending his playing career in 2006. Won 47 caps and Olympic footballing gold with Spain in 1992, but missed the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups through injury.

• Having coached Barcelona's B team, he took charge of the senior side in 2008 and won the UEFA Champions League, Spanish Liga and Copa del Rey in his first season. That was just the beginning of a glorious four-season spell which yielded 14 trophies. In his second campaign, Guardiola steered Barcelona to a second Liga title as well as the Spanish and UEFA Super Cups and the FIFA Club World Cup. Even more sucess followed in 2010/11 as Barcelona completed a hat-trick of Spanish titles and, for the second time under Guardiola, got the better of Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League final.

• In his final season, 2011/12, Guardiola's team won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup once more before he signed off his reign with a second Copa del Rey triumph. After a year's break, Guardiola took charge of Bayern in June 2013, replacing Jupp Heynckes.

• Collected the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, German Cup and, with a record seven games to spare, the Bundesliga title in his first season in Germany. Secured his second successive Bundesliga title the following season, and Bayern again dominated domestically in 2015/16, but all three of Guardiola's UEFA Champions League campaigns in Bavaria ended in the semi-finals.

• Opted for a new challenge at Manchester City in summer 2016 and, though the first year in charge produced Guardiola's first trophy-less campaign as a coach, he and City delivered in style in 2017/18, racking up 100 points in winning the Premier League and adding the English League 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.
