Match background Only this chapter

Barcelona and Lyon remain unbeaten in this season's UEFA Champions League as they meet again at the Camp Nou with a place in the quarter-finals at stake.

• There were no goals in the first game at the OL Stadium on 19 February. The closest either side came to breaking the deadlock was when Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen brilliantly tipped Martin Terrier's first-half shot against the crossbar.

• While the French side are in the round of 16 for the first time since 2011/12, Barcelona have featured every year bar the first since its 2003/04 introduction – 15 years in a row – and have won 12 of their previous 14 ties.

• First in Group B this season, Barcelona have lost only one of their last 18 UEFA Champions League matches and are unbeaten this season, as are Lyon; Les Gones finished second behind Manchester City in Group F and have now drawn six games in a row in the competition, one short of AEK Athens' record. This is the only round of 16 tie between two clubs who went unbeaten through the group stage.

Highlights: Lyon 0-0 Barcelona

Previous meetings
• The most recent of the sides' six meetings before the first leg came in the 2008/09 round of 16, when Barcelona won 6-3 on aggregate en route to lifting the trophy. After a 1-1 draw in Lyon, the Spanish club were 5-2 victors at the Camp Nou, Lionel Messi scoring the third goal. Gerard Piqué also played in both games, with Sergio Busquets featuring at the Stade de Gerland.

• Those were the teams' only previous knockout fixtures before the first leg. They met in the 2001/02 first group stage and the 2007/08 group stage; Barcelona won each home game without conceding and earned a win and a draw in France, Messi scoring both home (3-0) and away (2-2) in the latter campaign.

Form guide
• Barcelona have been in the round of 16 every year from 2004/05 onwards, winning 12 of those 14 ties. The Blaugrana lost two of their first three ties, most recently against Liverpool in 2006/07, but have won their last 11. In 2017/18 they beat Chelsea 4-1 on aggregate (1-1 away, 3-0 home).

• Barça's home record in the round of 16 is W12 D1 L1 – they have won the last 11 matches.

Ter Stegen confident Barcelona can progress

• Barcelona's last home game with French opponents was a spectacular one as they produced the biggest comeback in UEFA Champions League history to win their 2016/17 last-16 tie against Paris Saint-Germain. Barça looked to be heading out when they lost the first leg 4-0 in Paris, only for a stunning 6-1 second-leg success to turn the tie on its head.

• That was also Barcelona's third successive win at home to French clubs; their record against Ligue 1 sides at the Camp Nou is W8 D2 L1.

• Barça's record in two-legged sides against Ligue 1 opponents is W4 L3; after losing the first three contests they have won the last four.

• Barcelona won both home games in last season's knockout rounds, and are unbeaten in 11 knockout games at the Camp Nou (W9 D2), since a 3-0 loss to Bayern München in the 2012/13 semi-final second leg.

• Ernesto Valverde's side won their first two home games in this season's group stage, beating PSV Eindhoven 4-0 and Internazionale 2-0 before a 1-1 draw with Tottenham.

• That helped Barcelona finish first in their UEFA Champions League group for the 12th season in a row and the 20th overall – both competition records. They have reached at least the quarter-finals in all their last 11 UEFA Champions League campaigns, another competition record, losing in the last eight in the last three seasons; in 2017/18, they succumbed to a remarkable Roma fightback, going out despite a 4-1 home first-leg victory after losing 3-0 in Italy.

• That defeat at Roma is Barcelona's sole loss in their last 18 UEFA Champions League fixtures (W10 D7).

The final whistle in Lyon

• Barcelona are unbeaten in 29 UEFA Champions League home matches, a run that started in September 2013 (W26 D3); the draw against Tottenham equalled the competition record of 29 set by Bayern München between March 1998 and April 2002.

• Spanish champions for the 25th time – and third in four years – in 2017/18, Barcelona have been European champions on five occasions, most recently in 2015.

• Barcelona have recorded 25 away first-leg draws in UEFA competition, winning 20 of those ties on aggregate, most recently against Chelsa in last season's round of 16 (1-1 away, 3-0 home). Their record is more mixed when the first game has finished 0-0 away, however, with four aggregate wins and two defeats; the most recent such contest came against AC Milan in the 2011/12 quarter-finals (3-1 home).

• Barcelona's record in six UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W5 L1:
5-4 v Lech Poznań, 1988/89 European Cup Winners' Cup second round
0-2 v Steaua, 1985/86 European Champion Clubs' Cup final
5-4 v IFK Göteborg, 1985/86 European Champion Clubs' Cup semi-final
4-1 v Anderlecht, 1978/79 European Cup Winners' Cup second round
3-1 v Ipswich Town, 1977/78 UEFA Cup third round
5-4 v AZ Alkmaar, 1977/78 UEFA Cup second round

Lyon's Denayer delighted with clean sheet

• This is Lyon's tenth UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie, and a first in seven seasons. They won the first three ties but have lost five of the last six, most recently being beaten on penalties by APOEL of Cyprus in 2011/12.

• Lyon's last victory in the round of 16 came at the expense of Barcelona's great rivals Real Madrid, who they beat 2-1 on aggregate in 2009/10 (1-0 home, 1-1 away).

• Lyon have lost four of their last five away games in the round of 16, where their away record overall is W3 D2 L4. Their last away win at this stage, 1-0 at PSV Eindhoven in 2005/06, was their third in a row.

• Lyon's record in two-legged knockout ties against Spanish clubs is W3 L3, most recently a 4-1 defeat of Villarreal in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League round of 32 (3-1 home, 1-0 away) – their last fixtures against Liga opposition.

• Les Gones won their first game in this season's UEFA Champions League, 2-1 at Manchester City, before drawing the next five. They qualified for the round of 16 with a 1-1 draw at Shakhtar Donetsk on matchday six.

• Coupled with the first leg, that makes it just one defeat in 11 European matches for Bruno Génésio's side, who had scored two or more goals in six continental fixtures in a row before drawing at Shakhtar.

• Les Gones have lost only one of their last eight European away fixtures (W4 D3) and none of their last five in the UEFA Champions League (W2 D3).

• Lyon were UEFA Champions League semi-finalists in 2010 and are in the competition for the 15th time – more than any other French club.

• OL have lost all eight UEFA competition ties in which they drew the initial leg at home, most recently against Real Madrid in the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (1-1 home, 0-3 away). That includes two ties where the initial match finished goalless, most recently in the 2005/06 quarter-finals against AC Milan (1-3 away).

• Lyon's record in three UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L2:
7-6 v Beşiktaş, 2016/17 UEFA Europa League quarter-final
3-4 v APOEL, 2011/12 UEFA Champions League round of 16
2-4 v PSV Eindhoven, 2004/05 UEFA Champions League quarter-final

Head coach Only this chapter

Ernesto Valverde

Date of birth: 9 February 1964
Nationality: Spanish
Playing career: Alavés, Sestao, Espanyol, Barcelona, Athletic Club, Mallorca
Coaching career: Athletic Club (twice), Espanyol, Olympiacos (twice), Villarreal, Valencia, Barcelona

• Known as 'Txingurri' – or worker ant – as a player, former striker Valverde scored 44 goals in 170 appearances over a six-year stay with Athletic, which included his only cap for Spain. Had previously helped Espanyol to a third-place Liga finish in 1987 and an appearance in the following season's UEFA Cup final, which they lost on penalties to Bayer Leverkusen, before spending two years at Barcelona between 1988 and 1990, making 22 appearances.

• Began coaching career in Athletic's youth ranks before stepping up to handle first-team affairs with the Basque club in 2003/04; guided the Leones to UEFA Cup qualification in his first term in charge. Valverde again found himself losing a UEFA Cup final on penalties in 2007 – this time as coach of Espanyol – with Liga rivals Sevilla emerging victorious in Glasgow.

• In his first season outside Spain, steered Olympiacos to a Greek league and cup double in 2008/09 before signing a one-year deal with Villarreal in June 2009. Was sacked the following January with the Yellow Submarine in tenth.

• Rejoined Olympiacos in August 2010, lifting another championship at the end of his first campaign. Added a second domestic double the next year but then stood down, taking the Valencia helm in December 2012. Reappointed by Athletic in June 2013 and took them to fourth in the Liga in his first term back, winning the 2015 Spanish Super Cup with a 5-1 defeat of Barcelona – where he succeeded Luis Enrique as head coach in May 2017.

• Marked his first season in charge at the Camp Nou with a league and cup double, Barcelona losing only one Liga fixture on the way to claiming the title.


Bruno Génésio

Date of birth: 1 September 1966
Nationality: French
Playing career: Lyon, Nice (loan), Martigues
Coaching career: Arbresle (youth), Villefranche, Besançon (assistant), Besançon, Lyon (assistant), Lyon

• Lyon-born, he spent the bulk of his playing career as a midfielder with his home-town club, enjoying ten years with Les Gones over two spells. Part of the side that won promotion to Ligue 1 in 1989, Génésio also secured the second division title during his one-year loan stint at Nice in 1993/94.

• Began coaching in 1997, taking charge of local youth team L'Arbresle, near Lyon, before assuming the helm at Villefranche two years later. Hired in 2001, initially as an assistant, Génésio inspired Besançon from the amateur ranks to Ligue 2, but as a head coach suffered relegation twice.

• Joined OL backroom staff in 2006 at the request of head coach Gérard Houllier. Génésio started as a scout, then accepted a position with the reserves and steered them to the French championship. A senior coaching staff role followed under Rémi Garde in 2011.

• Stayed at the Stade de Gerland to work alongside new manager Hubert Fournier when Garde left at the end of the 2014/15 season. He was then appointed head coach on 24 December 2015 following Fournier's departure.

• Guided Lyon from ninth to a second-placed finish following the winter break, clinching a UEFA Champions League group stage berth; although Lyon failed to clear that initial hurdle the following season, they went all the way to the UEFA Europa League semi-finals. Reached the last 16 of the same competition in 2017/18, missing the chance to play in the final at their own OL Stadium; consolation came via third place in Ligue 1, earning a UEFA Champions League return.

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 46 times, including Porto and Juventus in the 2018/19 round of 16. 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 again (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 2017/18 semi-final.

• Bayern and Manchester City jointly hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match. Bayern beat both Basel (2011/12) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg, while City beat Schalke by the same scoreline at the same stage of the 2018/19 competition.

• 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, a mark Ronaldo matched against Atlético Madrid in the round of 16 second leg.

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.
