Match background Only this chapter

Having ended a six-game losing European run on matchday five, Lokomotiv Moskva will attempt to earn a place in the UEFA Europa League when they conclude their Group D campaign with an away game against a Schalke side who are already certain to finish second.

• Weston McKennie's 88th-minute goal gave Schalke a 1-0 win in Moscow on matchday two, helping Schalke pick up eight points from their first five fixtures – with progress to the round of 16 secured on matchday five despite a 3-1 defeat at Porto.

• Lokomotiv have three points having beaten Galatasaray 2-0 at home last time out to close to within one point of the Turkish club. The Russian side will finish third if they win and Galatasaray do not do the same at home to Porto as Galatasaray have a superior head-to-head goal difference.

Highlights: Lokomotiv Moskva 0-1 Schalke

Form guide
• After being held 1-1 at home by Porto and winning at Lokomotiv, the German club picked up four points from their two games against Galatasaray (0-0 away, 2-0 home) before that run of three successive clean sheets was ended by a 3-1 loss at Porto on matchday five.

• Schalke have won only two of their last seven UEFA Champions League games in Gelsenkirchen (D2 L3), conceding 18 goals in that run.

• Schalke are, however, unbeaten in eight home European fixtures (W5 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.

Tedesco on the secret of Schalke's success

• Schalke's only previous home game against Russian visitors was a 2-0 defeat of Krasnodar in the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League group stage. Having won 1-0 in Russia and beaten Lokomotiv on matchday two, the German club have kept three clean sheets in winning all three of their previous fixtures with Russian opposition.

• Lokomotiv lost their first four games, 0-3 at Galatasaray and that 1-0 home defeat by Schalke preceding home (1-3) and away (1-4) reverses against section leaders Porto. However, a 2-0 defeat of Galatasaray in Moscow last time out kept alive their hopes of finishing third.

• The win against Galatasaray ended Loko's run of six consecutive European defeats – they had won the previous four. That run was the worst losing sequence in Lokomotiv's European history, eclipsing their five successive losses in 2003.

• 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 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.

• The 3-0 first-leg loss at Atlético was Lokomotiv's only away defeat in Europe last season (W2 D2). Despite that defeat, and the subsequent losses at Galatasaray and Porto, they have lost only four of their last 12 European away matches (W4 D4).

See Lokomotiv revive hopes by beating Galatasaray

• Loko are without an away victory in the UEFA Champions League since a 2-1 win at Galatasaray in the 2002/03 first group stage. Their subsequent record, qualifying included, is D4 L8.

• Lokomotiv won their first fixture against German opponents, a 1-0 success at Bayern München in the 1995/96 UEFA Cup first round first leg, but lost the home return 5-0 to the eventual winners, and have been beaten in all five subsequent games against Bundesliga outfits.

Links and trivia

Head coach Only this chapter

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.


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.

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.
