Match background Only this chapter

Porto must end a long winless run in the UEFA Champions League knockout phase to turn round their tie against a Roma team whose impressive home form has once again left them well placed to reach the quarter-finals.

• In the first leg, two goals from 19-year-old midfielder Nicolò Zaniolo made it four successive home wins in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages for Roma, although Adrián López scored what could be a crucial goal 11 minutes from time to set up an intriguing second leg at the Estádio do Dragão.

• That defeat ended Porto's five-game winning run in this season's competition, the Portuguese side having scored three goals or more in their four outings prior to the trip to Italy as they eased to first place in Group D. Roma, meanwhile, were second to holders Real Madrid in Group G, although their campaign has also included their biggest UEFA Champions League victory.

Highlights: Roma 2-1 Porto

Previous meetings
• Porto were unbeaten in their four matches with Roma before the first leg.

• They knocked out the Italian side in the second round of the 1981/82 European Cup Winners' Cup thanks to a 2-0 home first-leg victory that took them through by the same aggregate scoreline.

• Porto players also provided both goals when the sides met again in Portugal in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League play-offs, although this time it ended in a 1-1 draw; André Silva's 61st-minute penalty got the home side back on terms after a Felipe own goal had given Roma a first-half lead.

• The Portuguese side turned on the style in the Stadio Olimpico return, goals from Felipe (8), Miguel Layún (73) and Jesús Corona (75) earning an impressive victory and a place in the group stage.

• Aside from the goalscorers, Iker Casillas, Maxi Pereira, Alex Telles, Héctor Herrera, Danilo, Otávio, Sérgio Oliveira and Adrián López all featured for Porto in that tie with Iván Marcano, who swapped Porto for Roma last summer, playing all 180 minutes for the Portuguese side. Juan Jesus, Diego Perotti, Kosas Manolas, Daniele De Rossi, Edin Džeko and Federico Fazio appeared for Roma.

Form guide
Porto
• Porto suffered a heavy defeat in last season's round of 16, losing 5-0 at home to Liverpool and on aggregate. The first-leg loss to Roma means they are without a win in their last six UEFA Champions League knockout matches (D1 L5).

• Porto's record in the round of 16 is W3 L7, and they have won only one of their last five ties. They have reached this stage for the third year in a row but have not made it to the quarter-finals since 2014/15.

• Porto have won five of their nine two-legged ties against Italian clubs, although the most recent, against Juventus in the 2016/17 round of 16, ended in a 3-0 aggregate defeat (0-2 home, 0-1 away).

• The defeat by Juventus in Portugal ended Porto's seven-match unbeaten home run against Italian visitors (W3 D4).

• Porto won all three home games in this season's group stage, against Galatasaray (1-0), Lokomotiv Moskva (4-1) and Schalke (3-1). They have won seven – and lost five – of their last 14 home European matches.

• The Dragons' last European defeat before the first leg came in last season's round of 16 first leg to Liverpool; their record between the two losses was W5 D2. Their five victories in a row before their defeat in Rome set a new club record for successive wins, eclipsing their previous best set in the 1996/97 group stage.

• Porto's tally of 16 points was the highest of any club in this season's group stage.

• Porto have won only four of the 20 UEFA competition ties in which they lost the away first leg, most recently going down to Borussia Dortmund in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League round of 32 (0-2 away, 0-1 home). However, three of their four victories have come when the away first leg ended in a 2-1 defeat, although they lost on the last such occasion, against Real Madrid in the 1987/88 European Champion Clubs' Cup second round (1-2 home) – only their second aggregate defeat after a 1-2 away reverse.

• Porto's record in three UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L2:
1-4 v Schalke, 2007/08 UEFA Champions League round of 16
8-7 v Once Caldas, 2004 European/South American Cup
3-5 v Sampdoria, 1994/95 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup quarter-final

Zaniolo on dream Roma double

Roma
• Roma's round of 16 record is W3 L3. They beat Lyon (2006/07) and Real Madrid (2007/08) in their first two appearances, but then lost to Arsenal (2008/09), Shakhtar Donetsk (2010/11) and Madrid (2015/16) before beating Shakhtar on away goals last season (1-2 away, 1-0 home).

• Roma had lost five successive matches in the round of 16 before that second-leg win against Shakhtar last season.

• Roma, runners-up in the 1983/84 European Cup, reached the semi-finals last season, beating Shakhtar and Barcelona in the knockout rounds – when a 4-1 away defeat was followed by a 3-0 victory at the Stadio Olimpico – before succumbing to Liverpool.

• The Giallorossi lost all three away games in last season's knockout rounds, and two of their three away matches in Group G in the current campaign. The 2-1 victory at CSKA Moskva on matchday four is their only win in their last eight European away games (D1 L6), since a 2-1 success at Qarabağ on matchday two in 2017/18.

• Roma's record in two-legged knockout ties against Portuguese sides is W3 L3; the 2016/17 defeat by Porto ended a run of three successive victories.

• Roma have drawn on their last two trips to Portugal, where their overall record is W2 D3 L2.

• That 2016 loss to Porto was only Roma's second in their last 12 matches against Portuguese clubs (W6 D4).

• Roma have won 26 of the 30 UEFA competition ties in which they won the home first leg, most recently against Gent in the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League third qualifying round (3-1, 7-1). The most recent of their four defeats came at the hands of Manchester United in the 2006/07 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals (2-1, 1-7). That United tie is one of only two instances where the home first leg finished 2-1 in Roma's favour; the other came against Real Madrid in the last 16 of the 2007/08 competition (2-1 away).

• Roma's record in four UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L3:
6-7 v Arsenal, 2008/09 UEFA Champions League round of 16
3-4 v Real Zaragoza, 1986/87 European Cup Winners' Cup first round
3-4 v Liverpool, 1983/84 European Champion Clubs' Cup final
4-2 v Norrköping, 1982/83 UEFA Cup second round

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.

Eusebio Di Francesco

Date of birth: 8 September 1969
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: Empoli, Lucchese, Piacenza (twice), Roma, Ancona, Perugia
Coaching career: Virtus Lanciano, Pescara, Lecce, Sassuolo (twice), Roma

• A pacy winger known as 'Turbo', Di Francesco came through Empoli's youth system, making his Serie A debut in 1987/88. His career really took off at Piacenza between 1995 and 1997, when he earned himself a move to Roma. Transformed into a midfielder by Zdeněk Zeman, he spent four seasons at the Stadio Olimpico, winning the 2000/01 Scudetto although he played only five games that campaign.

• Having retired in 2005 after two more seasons at Piacenza and spells with Ancona and Perugia, Di Francesco – who won 12 caps for Italy – spent a year as a Roma director but the lure of coaching proved strong; that new venture began in his native Abruzzo, first with a brief stint at Lanciano before two campaigns with Pescara.

• Appointed Lecce coach ahead of 2011/12 for his first Serie A experience, though it proved brief as Di Francesco was sacked after just 13 matches with his side bottom of the table.

• Dropped back into Serie B the following season; a huge Zeman fan, Di Francesco – named after Portuguese legend Eusébio – had a brilliant start with Sassuolo using his mentor's 4-3-3 system and led the team from the Modena area into Serie A for the first time.

• Coached Sassuolo in Serie A for four consecutive campaigns, although the first featured a short interruption as he was replaced for five games by Alberto Malesani only to return and help the side avoid relegation. Known for his entertaining attacking football, he steered Sassuolo to a first UEFA Europa League qualification by finishing sixth in Serie A in 2015/16 before replacing Luciano Spalletti as Roma coach in June 2017. In his first season he took the side into the last four of the UEFA Champions League thanks to a remarkable quarter-final comeback against Barcelona.

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.
