Match background Only this chapter

PSV Eindhoven's hopes of progressing to the UEFA Champions League knockout stages are over, but they can still finish third in Group B as they welcome to Eindhoven already-qualified Barcelona, who are looking to win their section for a record 20th time.

• The Dutch side were beaten 4-0 at the Camp Nou on matchday one – Lionel Messi scoring a hat-trick and Ousmane Dembélé getting the other – and have picked up a single point from their four fixtures.

• The defeat of PSV was the first of three wins Barcelona managed, before their place in the round of 16 was assured by a 1-1 draw at Internazionale last time out.

• The Spanish side will clinch first place in the group with a win, or a draw if Inter do not beat Spurs in the other fixture. PSV can finish third but must reduce their gap to Spurs below three points on matchday five.

Highlights: Barcelona 4-0 PSV

Previous meetings
• Matchday one was Barcelona's third win in the teams' seven fixtures, with only one defeat.

• The sides traded 2-2 draws in Eindhoven and Barcelona in the 1997/98 UEFA Champions League group stage.

• There were also plenty of goals in the teams' 1995/96 UEFA Cup quarter-final, Barcelona eventually going through 5-4 on aggregate (2-2 home, 3-2 away).

• PSV won the first tie between the sides, in the 1977/78 UEFA Cup semi-finals, 4-3 on aggregate. The Dutch club won the home first leg 3-0 – the teams' first meeting – and survived a 3-1 loss in Spain to progress; they went on to win the trophy.

Watch PSV lose at Tottenham on matchday four

Form guide
• PSV have lost all but one of their Group B games, drawing 2-2 at home with Tottenham on matchday three. Aside from the 4-0 loss in Barcelona, they went down 2-1 at home to Inter and, last time out, at Spurs.

• 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).

• The first-leg win at BATE ended a ten-game run without a European away win for PSV (D4 L6).

•  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.

• 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 12 UEFA Champions League fixtures, group stage to final (D5 L7).

• 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 D3 L3 with just four 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.

• PSV are without a win in their last four home games against Spanish clubs (D2 L2), since a 3-2 defeat of Deportivo La Coruña in December 2003 – also their last success against Liga opposition overall. Their record since, home and away, is D3 L6.

• The Dutch champions have won only four of their 14 home games with Spanish clubs. They won three of the first four such matches, but the Deportivo success is their only victory in the last ten (D6 L3).

Barcelona's five European Cup wins

• Ernesto Valverde's side won 4-2 at Tottenham on matchday two having opened Group B with that 4-0 home victory against PSV. Inter were then beaten 2-0 at the Camp Nou on matchday three, before a 1-1 draw at San Siro that secured progress. Barcelona are the only team in all eight groups to have sealed their place in the round of 16 with two games to spare.

• Spanish champions for the 25th time – and third in four years – in 2017/18, Barcelona have been European champions on five occasions, most recently in 2015.

• Barcelona have finished first in their UEFA Champions League group on a record 19 occasions – four times more than Real Madrid and Manchester United.

• Barça have won their group in each of the past 11 seasons, and have reached at least the quarter-finals in all of those UEFA Champions League campaigns, both competition records. In 2017/18, they succumbed to a remarkable Roma fightback in the last eight, going out despite a 4-1 home first-leg victory after losing 3-0 in the Rome return.

• That defeat at Roma ended Barcelona's ten-match unbeaten run in the UEFA Champions League (W6 D4).

• Barcelona won only one of their three away games in last season's group stage, drawing the other two, although they kept three clean sheets. They have won six of their last 18 away matches in the competition, drawing six and losing the other six. They have lost four of their last 11 away games in the UEFA Champions League (W3 D4).

• Before this season, the Spanish side's last fixtures against Eredivisie opposition came in 2014/15, when they defeated Ajax twice in the group stage (3-1 home, 2-0 away). Matchday one made it three wins in a row against Dutch clubs.

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.


Ernesto Valverde

Date of birth: 9 February 1964
Nationality: Spanish
Playing career: Alavés, Sestao, Espanyol, Barcelona, Athletic Club, Mallorca
Coaching career: Athletic Club (twice), Espanyol, Olympiacos (twice), Villarreal, Valencia, Barcelona

• Known as 'Txingurri' – or worker ant – as a player, former striker Valverde scored 44 goals in 170 appearances over a six-year stay with Athletic, which included his only cap for Spain. Had previously helped Espanyol to a third-place Liga finish in 1987 and an appearance in the following season's UEFA Cup final, which they lost on penalties to Bayer Leverkusen, before spending two years at Barcelona between 1988 and 1990, making 22 appearances.

• Began coaching career in Athletic's youth ranks before stepping up to handle first-team affairs with the Basque club in 2003/04; guided the Leones to UEFA Cup qualification in his first term in charge. Valverde again found himself losing a UEFA Cup final on penalties in 2007 – this time as coach of Espanyol – with Liga rivals Sevilla emerging victorious in Glasgow.

• In his first season outside Spain, steered Olympiacos to a Greek league and cup double in 2008/09 before signing a one-year deal with Villarreal in June 2009. Was sacked the following January with the Yellow Submarine in tenth.

• Rejoined Olympiacos in August 2010, lifting another championship at the end of his first campaign. Added a second domestic double the next year but then stood down, taking the Valencia helm in December 2012. Reappointed by Athletic in June 2013 and took them to fourth in the Liga in his first term back, winning the 2015 Spanish Super Cup with a 5-1 defeat of Barcelona – where he succeeded Luis Enrique as head coach in May 2017.

• Marked his first season in charge at the Camp Nou with a league and cup double, Barcelona losing only one Liga fixture on the way to claiming the title.

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.
