Match background Only this chapter

Last season's surprise semi-finalists Ajax kick off their latest UEFA Champions League group campaign at home to a LOSC Lille side who are making their first appearance in seven seasons.

• The Dutch champions had to negotiate two tight qualifying ties to reach the group stage for a second season running, 2018/19 having marked their first appearance in four years. LOSC, who have never before played Ajax, are looking for a first win against Dutch opponents.

Form guide
• Ajax went all the way from the UEFA Champions League second qualifying round to the semi-finals in 2018/19, losing on away goals to Tottenham in the last four after conceding six minutes into added time to go down 3-2 at home and bow out after a 3-3 aggregate draw.

• Erik ten Hag's team lost only two of their 18 European matches in 2018/19 (W10 D6), when they became the first side in European Cup history to reach the semi-finals having come through three qualifying rounds and the first Dutch club to get to the UEFA Champions League last four since PSV Eindhoven in 2004/05.

Ajax's 1995 Champions League road to glory

• Champions of the Netherlands for the 34th time in 2018/19 – their first league title since 2014 – Ajax also lifted the Dutch Cup to claim their eighth domestic double, and a first since 2002.

• They kicked off this season's UEFA Champions League in the third qualifying round, seeing off Greek side PAOK 5-4 on aggregate after a 2-2 away draw and a 3-2 home win secured by an 85th-minute Dušan Tadić penalty. The second-leg victory in Amsterdam ended a run of four home European matches without a win (D2 L2).

• A goalless draw at APOEL in the first leg of the play-offs ended Ajax's run of scoring in 14 successive European matches. Their scoring run at home was extended to 11 games in a row, however, thanks to a 2-0 second-leg defeat of APOEL in Amsterdam, Tadić again on target to make it three goals in two European appearances at the Johan Cruijff Arena this season.

• Ajax last faced French opposition in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round, drawing 2-2 with Nice to bow out on away goals (3-3 aggregate). They nevertheless extended their unbeaten home sequence against Ligue 1 visitors to eight fixtures (W4 D4), since a 2-1 loss against Auxerre in the 1996/97 UEFA Champions League group stage.

LOSC Lille
• Second in Ligue 1 last term, this is LOSC's sixth appearance in the UEFA Champions League group stage and their first since 2012/13. Only one of those previous five campaigns has extended into the knockout rounds, in 2006/07; seven years ago they finished bottom of a section including Bayern München, Valencia and BATE Borisov.

The top ten goals of the 2018/19 Champions League season

• The French club won their last away group game, 2-0 at BATE in November 2012; indeed, they have triumphed in two of their last four away games in the UEFA Champions League proper but overall have won only three of their 16 away games in the competition (D4 L9).

• LOSC's most recent foray into continental competition came in 2016/17 and lasted only one tie, Gabala of Azerbaijan running out 2-1 aggregate winners in the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round (1-1 h, 0-1 a).

• That extended Les Dogues' run without a European away win to five matches (D2 L3), since a 2-0 success at Grasshoppers in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round.

Play-off highlights: Ajax 2-0 APOEL

• This is only LOSC's second trip to the Netherlands – they lost 3-1 at PSV Eindhoven in the 2010/11 UEFA Europa League round of 32 second leg – and a third fixture against a Dutch club overall; they had drawn 2-2 at home to PSV in the first leg of that tie.

• David Neres and Gabriel were team-mates in Brazil's Under-20 side in 2017.

• Dušan Tadić and José Fonte were Southampton team-mates between July 2014 and January 2017.

Head coach Only this chapter

Erik ten Hag

Date of birth: 2 February 1970
Nationality: Dutch
Playing career: Twente (three times), De Graafschap, RKC Waalwijk, Utrecht
Coaching career: Twente (youth, assistant), PSV Eindhoven (assistant), Go Ahead Eagles, Bayern München II, Utrecht, Ajax

• Born in Haaksbergen in the east Netherlands close to Enschede, Ten Hag's early days were spent with local club Bon Boys before a move to the youth department of Twente, where he made his professional debut aged 19 in December 1989.

• A defensive midfielder and defender, he then spent two seasons with De Graafschap, winning promotion to Eredivisie in his first, before returning to Twente for two years. Ten Hag moved on to single-season stays at both RKC Waalwijk and Utrecht, and then returned to Twente again in 1996, this time for good.

• Reached the last 16 of the 1997/98 UEFA Cup, losing to Auxerre, and in 2001 he won his only silverware with the club, Fred Rutten's team beating PSV Eindhoven on penalties in the Dutch Cup final with Ten Hag as captain. After ending his playing career in 2002 he became head of Twente's youth department, also working as assistant coach for several years, alongside Rutten from 2006/07. Followed the head coach to PSV in 2009, serving as his assistant for three seasons.

• Took his first post as head coach at Go Ahead Eagles, winning promotion to the Dutch top flight in his 2012/13 debut season, before moving on to Bayern München's second team, winning the Regionalliga title in 2014 and working with Josep Guardiola. Took over at Utrecht in summer 2015, winning the Rinus Michels award as the Netherlands' coach of the year 12 months later.

• Succeeded Marcel Keizer at Ajax in December 2017, leading the club to second place in the Eredivisie at the end of that campaign. In 2018/19, guided Ajax into the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time in four years and took them all the way to a first semi-final since 1997, knocking out holders Real Madrid and Juventus before a last-gasp defeat by Tottenham; consolation came in the form of a domestic league and cup double.


Christophe Galtier

Date of birth: 23 August 1966
Nationality: French
Playing career: Marseille (twice), LOSC Lille, Toulouse, Angers, Nîmes, Monza, Liaoning Yuandong
Coaching career: Marseille (assistant, caretaker), Aris Thessaloniki (assistant), Bastia (assistant, caretaker), Al-Ain (assistant), Portsmouth (assistant), Sochaux (assistant), Lyon (assistant), St-Étienne (assistant), St-Étienne, LOSC Lille

• Primarily a defender who could also play in midfield, Galtier was a UEFA European Under-21 Championship winner with France in 1988 alongside Laurent Blanc and Eric Cantona; at club level he started out at his native Marseille, reaching successive Coupe de France finals, before departing for LOSC Lille in 1987.

• Spent three years with Les Dogues before a similar stint at Toulouse; after a season at both Angers and Nîmes and a return to Marseille between 1995 and 1997, tried his luck in Italy with Monza, hanging up his boots in 1999 after a year at Chinese club Liaonin Yuandong.

• Joined Marseille again, this time as an assistant coach to Bernard Casoni, Rolland Courbis and Abel Braga, before linking up with Alain Perrin in 2004; the pair won the French Cup with Sochaux in 2007, beating Marseille in the final, and claimed a domestic double with Lyon the following season – the first in the club's history.

• Perrin and Galtier nevertheless left Lyon at the end of that 2007/08 campaign, resurfacing at local rivals St-Étienne in November; 13 months later the assistant replaced Perrin as head coach and during an eight-year spell in charge helped to develop players including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Blaise Matuidi, Dimitri Payet and Kurt Zouma. Galtier also took Les Verts to French League Cup success in 2012/13, when he was named joint coach of the season alongside Paris Saint-Germain's Carlo Ancelotti.

• Left St-Étienne in May 2017, returning to the game seven months later at LOSC Lille, where he succeeded Marcelo Bielsa; following a challenging first campaign, Galtier guided an exciting young side to second place in the league in 2018/19, being rewarded with a place in the UEFA Champions League group stage and his second coach of the season award.
