Match background Only this chapter

Borussia Dortmund have it all to do as they welcome Tottenham to Germany facing a three-goal deficit in the second leg of their round of 16 tie.

• The English club took a stranglehold on the tie at Wembley on 13 February, second-half goals from Heung-Min Son, Jan Vertonghen and substitute Fernando Llorente inflicting Dortmund's joint biggest UEFA Champions League defeat and leaving Spurs on the verge of only what would be only a second quarter-final appearance.

Previous meetings
• All four of the sides' past contests have come in the past three years.

• In the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League round of 16, Dortmund were 3-0 winners in the home first leg – Marco Reus scoring twice – before a 2-1 success at White Hart Lane despite Son's goal for the home side.

Highlights: Tottenham 3-0 Dortmund

• Tottenham turned the tables in last season's UEFA Champions League group stage, winning 3-1 at Wembley – Son opening the scoring with Harry Kane adding two more – and 2-1 in Germany, the same two Spurs players again on the scoresheet.

• While Tottenham finished first in their section ahead of holders – and eventual champions – Real Madrid, Dortmund had to settle for third place.

Form guide
• The most recent of Dortmund's four UEFA Champions League round of 16 ties came in 2016/17, when they lost the first leg 1-0 at Benfica but went through with a 4-0 home success. That gave the Bundesliga club a record of W3 L1 at this stage of the competition.

• Dortmund are in the round of 16 for the fifth time in seven seasons.

• The German club have won only one of their last seven knockout phase matches in UEFA competition (D2 L4), 3-2 against Atalanta in last season's UEFA Europa League round of 32 first leg.

• Dortmund's record in two-legged knockout ties against English clubs is W3 L2; they lost the most recent, against Liverpool in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League quarter-finals (1-1 home, 3-4 away).

#UCL player focus: Jadon Sancho

• Dortmund's record at home to English clubs is W6 D4 L2; the two defeats came against Tottenham last season and north London neighbours Arsenal, who were 1-0 winners in the 2013/14 group stage.

• In this season's group stage, Lucien Favre's side kept three clean sheets at home in beating Monaco 3-0 and Atlético Madrid 4-0 before drawing 0-0 with Club Brugge. Dortmund conceded the fewest goals in the group stage (two) and kept the most clean sheets (five).

• The 3-2 home win against Atalanta in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 first leg was Dortmund's only European victory in ten games last season; they have now won three of their last nine European home matches (D2 L4).

• Before this season, Dortmund had won only one of their last 11 UEFA Champions League fixtures (D3 L7).

• This is Dortmund's seventh UEFA Champions League campaign in eight years, and 13th overall; they were winners in 1997, and runners-up in 2013.

• Dortmund have won eight of the 16 UEFA competition ties in which they lost the first leg away from home, most recently against Benfica in the 201617 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (0-1, 4-0). The biggest margin they have overturned is a 2-0 setback, which they have managed once in three attempts, defeating Rangers on penalties in the 1999/2000 UEFA Cup third round; their sole 3-0 first-leg away reverse came against Real Madrid in the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals (2-0 home).

• Dortmund's record in UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W2 L2:
6-5 v Auxerre, 1992/93 UEFA Cup semi-final
3-1 v Rangers, 1999/2000 UEFA Cup third round
2-4 v Club Brugge, 2003/04 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round
3-4 v Udinese, 2008/09 UEFA Cup first round

• This is only Spurs' third UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie, with their record standing at W1 L1. In 2010/11 they won 1-0 away to AC Milan and on aggregate; 12 months ago they drew 2-2 at Juventus in the first leg but bowed out after a 2-1 home defeat.

• Tottenham are therefore unbeaten in away matches in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 (W1 D1).

Son: Tottenham showed winning mentality

• Tottenham's most successful UEFA Champions League campaign came in 2010/11, when they reached the quarter-finals. This is their fourth campaign overall, and their third in a row.

• Tottenham's record in Germany is W4 D2 L6; that 2016 defeat at Dortmund is their sole loss in the last five visits (W2 D2).

• Their heaviest European defeat came in Germany – an 8-0 loss at Köln in the 1995 UEFA Intertoto Cup.

• Spurs' record in two-legged knockout ties against German clubs is W4 L3, although they have lost the last two.

• This season, Mauricio Pochettino's side picked up only two points on their travels in Group B, losing 2-1 at Inter before draws at PSV Eindhoven (2-2) and Barcelona (1-1). The latter result, on matchday six, helped them overtake Inter to snatch second place behind Barça; Spurs had one point after three matches.

• The Lilywhites have won just four of their last 18 European away matches (D7 L7).

• Tottenham have won 16 of the 18 ties in UEFA competition in which they won the home first leg, most recently against Internazionale in the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League round of 16 (3-0 home, 1-4aet away). That is one of three ties in which Spurs won 3-0 at home in the first match; they also won all three on aggregate.

• Spurs' last aggregate defeat when winning in the home first leg came in Germany, however, against Kaiserslautern in the 1999/2000 UEFA Cup second round (1-0 home, 0-2 away).

• Tottenham's record in three UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L2:
1-4 v Basel, 2012/13 UEFA Europa League quarter-final
5-6 v PSV Eindhoven, 2007/08 UEFA Cup round of 16
4-3 v Anderlecht, 1983/84 UEFA Cup final

Head coach Only this chapter

Lucien Favre

Date of birth: 2 November 1957
Nationality: Swiss
Playing career: Oulens, Lausanne, Neuchâtel Xamax, Servette (twice), Toulouse
Coaching career: Echallens (youth), Echallens, Yverdon-Sport, Servette, Zürich, Hertha Berlin, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Nice, Borussia Dortmund

• Capped 24 times by Switzerland, Favre was a playmaker during his playing days, with his career blighted by a persistent knee injury. Nevertheless, he won the 1985 Swiss league with Servette, two years after being voted Footballer of the Year.

• During his first stint as a coach he guided Echallens into the second tier for the first time in their history, before winning promotion to the top flight at his new club Yverdon. In 2001 he won the Swiss Cup with Servette, also guiding the club to the UEFA Cup fourth round, and joined Zürich in spring 2003, winning the Swiss Cup (2005) as well as back-to-back league titles in 2006 and 2007, being voted Swiss coach of the year two years running.

• In summer 2007, he left for Germany to join Hertha, unexpectedly guiding the capital side to fourth place in 2008/09. He was voted coach of the year in Germany after that term, but left his post in September.

• Took over at Gladbach in February 2011 and guided them to safety via the relegation play-offs before finishing fourth the next season to return the club to Europe after 16 years. In 2014/15, a third-placed finish in the Bundesliga earned Gladbach a UEFA Champions League group stage place and Favre Germany's coach of the year award for a second time.

• Resigned in September 2015 and took over at French side Nice the following May, overseeing a third-placed finish in 2016/17. Returned to Germany to take charge of Dortmund in May 2018.


Mauricio Pochettino

Date of birth: 2 March 1972
Nationality: Argentinian
Playing career: Newell's Old Boys, Espanyol (three times), Paris Saint-Germain, Bordeaux
Coaching career: Espanyol, Southampton, Tottenham

• A tough-tackling central defender, Pochettino was a product of Newell's Old Boys in Argentina where he briefly played with the legendary Diego Maradona during his five years in the senior squad.

• He moved to Europe in 1994 to join Spanish side Espanyol and won the Copa del Rey in 2000, before joining Paris in January 2001. After a stint at Bordeaux, returned to Espanyol, initially on loan, before hanging up his boots in 2006 having won another Copa del Rey. Capped 20 times by Argentina, appearing in the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

• Switched to coaching with Espanyol in January 2009, with the club lying third from bottom in the Spanish Liga; guided them to a tenth-placed finish. Under Pochettino, three further mid-table finishes followed before a slow start to 2012/13 prompted his departure.

• Surprisingly resurfaced in England at Southampton in January 2013, succeeding Nigel Adkins; introduced a high-pressing, attacking style which helped the club keep clear of relegation trouble. In his first full season in charge, took Saints to eighth position with 56 points – a new club record.

• Appointed Tottenham manager on a five-year contract in May 2014, and led the side to the English League Cup final in his debut campaign, only to lose out to Chelsea. The following season, 2015/16, Pochettino's side were in contention to win the club's first league title since 1961 until a draw at Chelsea with two games to go; nevertheless finished third to book a UEFA Champions League return, and finished a place higher, as Premier League runners-up, in 2016/17, before claiming third spot again the following season.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• 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.

Knockout stage
• Real Madrid have qualified for the UEFA Champions League knockout phase a record 23 times, including 22 in succession.

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 43 times. Only three times – Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos in the 1995/96 semi-finals and Real Madrid in this season's round of 16, and Internazionale's victory against Bayern in the 2010/11 round of 16 – has a side progressed after a home first-leg loss.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home; Roma equalled that margin in last season's quarter-finals, turning round a 4-1 first-leg loss at Barcelona with a 3-0 home success.

• Thirty ties have been decided on away goals, including 11 where the triumphant team lost the first leg. Bayern and Monaco have benefited from the away goals rule five times – more than any other club – whereas Internazionale have been eliminated by that method a record four times.

• In all, 28 ties have required extra time. Twelve have been settled by extra time alone: five round of 16 encounters, five quarter-finals, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool, and the 2013/14 final between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Lyon on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties. Bayern, Chelsea and Atlético Madrid have all appeared in three shoot-outs, sharing the competition record, with Bayern, Atlético and Liverpool having won the most (two apiece).

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Atlético Madrid and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid's defeat of Manchester City in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool (versus Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at Schalke in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting CP in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16.

• Bayern eventually beat Sporting by a record aggregate margin of 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie until it was equalled by Liverpool's 7-6 aggregate win against Roma in the 2007/08 semi-final.

• Bayern hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match having beaten both Basel (2011/12) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg.

• A record five clubs from England participated in the 2017/18 knockout phase. England has also provided four clubs on seven other occasions – as has Spain four times and Germany twice.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to lift the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) and Zinédine Zidane (2016, 2017, 2018) have replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburg 1983), José Mourinho (Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

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, Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03) and Robert Lewandowski (2018/19) 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.
