Match background Only this chapter

With Porto already through as Group D winners, the matchday six attention in Istanbul will focus on whether Galatasaray, on a run of four games without a goal, can rescue their European campaign by claiming a place in the UEFA Europa League.

• The Portuguese side have 13 points – three of them coming from a 1-0 home win against Gala on matchday two, Moussa Marega scoring the only goal – five clear of second-placed Schalke, who are also through. Galatasaray are third on four points, one ahead Lokomotiv Moskva

• Galatasaray will finish third if they win or if Lokomotiv do not gain victory at Schalke.

Highlights: Porto 1-0 Galatasaray

Form guide
• After opening with an impressive 3-0 home win against Lokomotiv, the Turkish side have picked up only one point from their last four games – from their other home game, a 0-0 draw with Schalke on matchday three. Gala have lost all three away games, failing to score at Porto, Schalke (0-2) and, last time out, Lokomotiv (0-2).

• 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 11 continental fixtures in Istanbul, drawing six.

• 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.

• Galatasaray have won three and lost three of their six games against Portuguese clubs. At home, they were 2-1 winners against Benfica in the most recent fixture, in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League group stage, but lost the other such game 2-0 to Braga at the same stage of the 2012/13 competition.

Five great Galatasaray goals

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

• After being held 1-1 at Schalke on matchday one, Porto have won their last four fixtures, following the win against Galatasaray by beating Lokomotiv in Russia (3-1) and Portugal (4-1). They wrapped up first place with a 3-1 win against Schalke on matchday five, Marega finding the net for the fourth successive UEFA Champions League match.

• The Dragons' run of four straight wins is the longest current sequence in the competition and equals the club's previous best, set in the 1996/97 group stage.

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

• Porto have now reached the round of 16 for three years in a row, and have qualified from the group four times in the last five 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 picked up six points at home in last season's group stage, although their first home game was a 3-1 loss against Galatasaray's local rivals Beşiktaş. That was Porto's first defeat against a Turkish club; their record in 11 such fixtures is now W7 D3 L1, the away game against Beşiktaş having finished 1-1.

• Porto have won only two of their last eight European away games (D4 L2). They had drawn three in a row before winning at Lokomotiv.

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.


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
• This season's success means Barcelona have finished as group winners on 20 occasions, four more than Real Madrid and five more than Bayern München and Manchester United.

• 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.
