Match background Only this chapter

A late turnaround in a dramatic first leg has left Manchester City within sight of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals for the third time in four years while Schalke face a fourth successive last-16 elimination.

• Sergio Agüero gave City an 18th-minute lead in an eventful first game in Gelsenkirchen, before two Nabil Bentaleb penalties late in the first half turned the match in Schalke's favour – those were the only three first-half goals scored across the eight round of 16 first legs. The visitors' problems intensified when Nicolás Otamendi was dismissed midway through the second period, but a fine free-kick from former Schalke favourite Leroy Sané (85) restored parity once more before Raheem Sterling's 90th-minute winner.

• The winners of Group F in the autumn, Manchester City are in the knockout stages for the sixth year in a row, and have won two of their last three round of 16 ties. In 2017/18 they went on to the quarter-finals, where they lost to fellow English side Liverpool.

• The German club reached the semi-finals in 2010/11, but have not been past the round of 16 in three attempts since. Schalke qualified for this season's knockout stages by finishing second to Porto in Group D.

Highlights: Schalke 2-3 Manchester City

Previous meetings
• City have won three of the teams' four previous fixtures, recording a 2-0 success in Gelsenkirchen in the 2008/09 UEFA Cup group stage thanks to goals from Benjani and Stephen Ireland. Vincent Kompany played 90 minutes for City, the only player from either side who is still with their club.

• The English club also came out on top against Schalke in the semi-final of their victorious European Cup Winners' Cup campaign in 1969/70, overturning a 1-0 first-leg loss in Germany with a 5-1 victory in Manchester.

Form guide
Manchester City
• City have been in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 every year since 2013/14, although they have won only two of those five previous ties. Twelve months ago a 4-0 away first-leg success at Basel effectively booked their place in the quarter-finals, Josep Guardiola's side going through despite a subsequent 1-2 home reverse. They had won seven of their previous eight home European matches, including four in a row, before losing to Basel.

• The defeat by Basel meant City have won only one of their five home matches in the round of 16 (D1 L3) – and even that sole victory, a 5-3 defeat of Monaco in the 2016/17 first leg, was the precursor to an aggregate defeat on away goals.

Sané: We never give up

• This is City's third game in a row against Bundesliga opponents; they beat Hoffenheim 2-1 in Manchester on matchday six, having won by the same scoreline in Germany. The first leg made it seven wins from their last eight matches against German clubs (D1), stretching back to a 1-0 loss at Bayern München in September 2014.

• The Citizens have won their last four home games against Bundesliga visitors; a 3-1 defeat by Bayern München in 2014 is their sole loss to German opposition in Manchester (W7 D2).

• City have lost both two-legged contests against German clubs, UEFA Cup quarter-finals against Borussia Mönchengladbach in 1978/79 and Hamburg 30 years later.

• City's best UEFA Champions League performance was reaching the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• The English champions opened this season with an unexpected 2-1 loss at home to Lyon – their third successive European defeat in Manchester – but won four of their next five fixtures, including a 6-0 home victory against Shakhtar Donetsk on matchday four that was their biggest win in UEFA club competition.

• Josep Guardiola's side have won six of their last 12 European matches, home and away – losing five.

Manchester City celebrate their victory at Schalke

• City have never failed to win a European tie after winning the away first leg. There have been nine such contests, most recently against Basel in last season's round of 16 (4-0 away, 1-2 home).

• City's record in two UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W2 L0:
4-3 v Aalborg, 2008/09 UEFA Cup round of 16
4-2 v Midtjylland, 2008/09 UEFA Cup second qualifying round

• Schalke are in the last 16 for the first time since 2014/15, when they lost 5-4 on aggregate to Real Madrid, going down 2-0 in the home first leg and bowing out despite a 4-3 success in Spain. That is their sole away victory in the round of 16 (D2 L2).

• That made it three successive last-16 eliminations for Schalke, who were also beaten 9-2 on aggregate by Madrid in 2013/14 and 4-3 by Galatasaray the previous season.

• Overall, Schalke have won only two of their five round of 16 ties in the UEFA Champions League, against Porto in 2007/08 and Valencia in 2010/11.

• Schalke picked up 11 points in this season's group stage, but only four away.

• Despite going down 3-1 at Porto on matchday five, Die Königsblauen have lost only three of their last 15 away European engagements (W8 D4).

Schalke's Nabil Bentaleb celebrates one of his two first-leg penalties

• The German club are without a win in their last six games against English sides (D2 L4), since a 2-0 victory at Arsenal in October 2012 which is their sole victory in England (D2 L5).

• Schalke's last visit to England brought a 1-1 draw at Chelsea in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League group stage; they lost the home game 5-0.

• Schalke's record in two-legged knockout ties against English clubs is W1 L1. Their most successful UEFA Champions League campaign, in 2010/11, was emphatically ended by City's neighbours Manchester United in the semi-finals (0-2 home, 1-4 away).

• Schalke have lost all five UEFA ties in which they succumbed at home in the first leg, most recently that 2015 aggregate loss to Real Madrid.

• Schalke's record in four UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W2 D2:
4-1 v Porto, 2007/08 UEFA Champions League round of 16
1-3 v Brøndby, 2003/04 UEFA Cup second round
4-5 v Slavia Praha, 1998/99 UEFA Cup first round
4-1 v Internazionale, 1996/97 UEFA Cup final

Head coach Only this chapter

Josep Guardiola

Date of birth: 18 January 1971
Nationality: Spanish
Playing career:
Barcelona, Brescia (twice), Roma, Al-Ahly Club, Dorados de Sinola
Coaching career:
Barcelona B, Barcelona, Bayern München, Manchester City

• Known as 'Pep', he came up through Barcelona's youth ranks to win six Spanish Liga titles, one European Champion Clubs' Cup, a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and two Copa del Rey trophies from 1990 to 2001. Also had spells with Brescia, Roma, al-Ahly in Doha and Mexico's Dorados de Sinola before ending his playing career in 2006. Won 47 caps and Olympic footballing gold with Spain in 1992, but missed the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups through injury.

• Having coached Barcelona's B team, he took charge of the senior side in 2008 and won the UEFA Champions League, Spanish Liga and Copa del Rey in his first season. That was just the beginning of a glorious four-season spell which yielded 14 trophies. In his second campaign, Guardiola steered Barcelona to a second Liga title as well as the Spanish and UEFA Super Cups and the FIFA Club World Cup. Even more sucess followed in 2010/11 as Barcelona completed a hat-trick of Spanish titles and, for the second time under Guardiola, got the better of Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League final.

• In his final season, 2011/12, Guardiola's team won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup once more before he signed off his reign with a second Copa del Rey triumph. After a year's break, Guardiola took charge of Bayern in June 2013, replacing Jupp Heynckes.

• Collected the UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, German Cup and, with a record seven games to spare, the Bundesliga title in his first season in Germany. Secured his second successive Bundesliga title the following season, and Bayern again dominated domestically in 2015/16, but all three of Guardiola's UEFA Champions League campaigns in Bavaria ended in the semi-finals.

• Opted for a new challenge at Manchester City in summer 2016 and, though the first year in charge produced Guardiola's first trophy-less campaign as a coach, he and City delivered in style in 2017/18, racking up 100 points in winning the Premier League and adding the English League Cup.


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.

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 45 times. Before this season, only twice – Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos in the 1995/96 semi-finals and Internazionale's victory against Bayern in the 2010/11 round of 16 – had a side progressed after a home first-leg loss only for Ajax (against Real Madrid) and Manchester United (against Paris Saint-Germain) to both do it in the 2018/19 round of 16.

• 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-one ties have been decided on away goals, including 12 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, 29 ties have required extra time. Thirteen have been settled by extra time alone: six round of 16 encounters including Porto-Roma this season, 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.
