Match background Only this chapter

Juventus missed the chance to kick off the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League with a notable win and now take on Bayer Leverkusen, who are also playing catch-up in Group D.

• Maurizio Sarri's European debut as Juve coach looked set to get off to a victorious start as his new side established a 2-0 lead at Atlético Madrid on matchday one, but the home team hit back late on to earn a draw. Leverkusen must overcome their own disappointment having gone down 2-1 at home to Lokomotiv Moskva, although the German club have not found Italy a happy hunting ground over the years.

Previous meetings
• The sides' only past fixtures came in the second group stage of the 2001/02 UEFA Champions League, when David Trezeguet's two goals and one each from Alessandro Del Piero and Igor Tudor helped Juve to a 4-0 victory in Turin.

• Leverkusen turned the tables with a 3-1 home success thanks to a penalty from goalkeeper Hans-Jörg Butt, plus further goals from Thomas Brdarić and Marko Babić, and went on to finish first in the section – ultimately reaching the final. Juve were eliminated in fourth place.

Highlights: Atlético 2-2 Juventus

Form guide
• Second-half goals from Juan Cuadrado and Blaise Matuidi seemed to have given Juve three points at Atlético on matchday one, but two strikes in the final 20 minutes pulled the Spanish side level and made it one win in six UEFA Champions League matches for Juve (D2 L3).

• In 2018/19, under Massimiliano Allegri, Juve finished first in Group H ahead of Manchester United, Valencia and Young Boys, picking up 12 points. After turning round their tie against Atlético in the round of 16 (0-2 a, 3-0 h), they drew 1-1 at Ajax in the first leg of their quarter-final only to bow out following a 2-1 home defeat.

• Juventus won three of their five home games in last season's UEFA Champions League, beating Young Boys (3-0) and Valencia (1-0) in the group stage and Atlético in the last 16, but lost the other two matches, against Manchester United on matchday four and Ajax in the quarter-final second leg (both 1-2). It is the only time Juventus have ever lost more than one home game in a European campaign.

• Before losing to Real Madrid in the 2017/18 quarter-finals first leg (0-3), Juve were unbeaten in 27 home matches in UEFA competition (W16 D11), dating back to a 2-0 reverse against Bayern München in April 2013. They have still lost only four of their 38 European matches at the Juventus Stadium (W22 D12), although three of those defeats have come in their last six matches.

• Champions of Italy for a record eighth season in a row in 2018/19, this is Juve's 20th UEFA Champions League campaign; they have reached the last 16 or better in 16 of the previous 19.

• Juve are without a win in their last four matches against German clubs (D3 L1), since a 3-0 success at Borussia Dortmund in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg (5-1 aggregate).

• The Bianconeri have won only one of their last five matches against German visitors in Turin (D2 L2), most recently drawing 2-2 against Bayern München in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg; the second leg ended in a 4-2 extra-time defeat for the Italian side, who had led 2-0 in Munich.

• Winners in 1985 and 1996, Juventus have played in nine European Cup finals – losing a record seven, including all of their last five.

Highlights: Leverkusen 1-2 Lokomotiv Moskva

• The home loss against Lokomotiv on matchday one made it two wins in Leverkusen's last 14 UEFA Champions League matches (D8 L4).

• Fourth in last season's Bundesliga, 2002 runners-up Leverkusen are in the UEFA Champions League group stage for the 12th time, and the first since 2016/17. They have reached the last 16 or better in seven of their last eight campaigns, most recently reaching the 2016/17 round of 16 where they lost to Atlético Madrid (2-4 h, 0-0 a).

•  Absent from Europe in 2017/18, for the first time in eight years, last season Leverkusen finished first in their UEFA Europa League section ahead of Zürich, AEK Larnaca and Ludogorets, but lost on away goals to Krasnodar in the round of 32 (0-0 a, 1-1 h).

• The Werkself have lost only two of their last 11 European away games (W4 D5), racking up ten goals on the road in last season's UEFA Europa League group stage.

• In the UEFA Champions League, Leverkusen are unbeaten in five away games (W1 D4), since a 3-2 group stage loss at Roma in November 2015.

• That made it five games without a win in Italy for Leverkusen (D1 L4), since a 1-0 success at Udinese in the 1999/2000 UEFA Cup third round first leg – their sole success away to Serie A opposition.

Head coach Only this chapter

Maurizio Sarri

Date of birth: 10 January 1959
Nationality: Italian
Coaching career: Sangiovannese, Pescara, Arezzo, Avellino, Verona, Perugia, Grosseto, Alessandria, Sorrento, Empoli, Napoli, Chelsea, Juventus

• Sarri was born in Naples, when his father was working in a local factory. The family moved back to Tuscany when he was three, but young Maurizio was always a Napoli fan. After a short career as an amateur footballer, he started coaching in the lower divisions in Tuscany while studying economics and working in a bank. In 2000/01 he accepted a job at Sansovino in Serie Eccellenza, the fifth tier, promising he would quit coaching for good if he did not win the league; they duly triumphed.

• After a Serie C1 promotion with Sangiovannese and 11th place in Serie B with Pescara, in 2006/07 Sarri replaced the sacked Antonio Conte at the helm of Arezzo. His side were relegated but Sarri did oversee a 2-2 away draw against Juventus and a home victory against AC Milan in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals, although the Rossoneri won on aggregate.

• In 2012 he took the Empoli job and, despite picking up only four points in the first nine games, his side reached the Serie B play-off final, losing to Livorno. The following season he guided Empoli to promotion and Sarri made his Serie A debut in 2014/15, leading the Azzurri to a 15th-place finish with his side earning plaudits for their organised and entertaining football.

• A 4-2 victory against Napoli helped the Partenopei decide to appoint him to replace Rafael Benítez. Sarri was an immediate success, leading Napoli to second place in 2015/16, his team scoring five goals more than eventual champions Juventus. Sarri's side also reached the UEFA Europa League round of 32, scoring a record 22 goals in the group stage.

• Napoli finished third in Serie A in 2016/17 and second 12 months later, after which Sarri departed for Chelsea. His sole season in England brough his first major trophy in the form of the UEFA Europa League, Chelsea also reaching the League Cup final and ending the Premier League campaign third before Sarri decided to return home, succeeding Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus.


Peter Bosz

Date of birth: 21 November 1963
Nationality: Dutch
Playing career: Vitesse, AGOVV Apeldoorn, RKC Waalwijk, Toulon, Feyenoord, JEF United Chiba (twice), Hansa Rostock, NAC Breda
Coaching career: AGOVV Apeldoorn, De Graafschap, Heracles Almelo (twice), Vitesse, Maccabi Tel-Aviv, Ajax, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen

• After three-year spells at Vitesse, Waalwijk and in France with Toulon, the midfielder's playing career took off following a move to Feyenoord in 1991; he won the Eredivisie in 1992/93 and three Dutch Cups, also picking up eight caps for the Netherlands. Bosz left Rotterdam after five years, proceeding to enjoy two Japanese stints with JEF United and also appearing in the Bundesliga for Hansa.

• Having retired in 1999 aged 36, Bosz rejoined home-town club Apeldoorn as coach, winning the national amateur championship in 2002. Head-coach opportunities then came with De Graafschap and Heracles – whom he led to the top flight in 2005 – before an appointment as Feyenoord technical director in 2006.

• Returning to coaching and Heracles in 2010, he kept the club in Eredivisie mid-table safety, but eventually stood down in 2013 and took charge of Vitesse for three years. Israel and Maccabi Tel-Aviv later came calling in January 2016, with the chance to work under sporting director Jordi Cruyff.

• After six months in Israel, however, Bosz was back in the Netherlands, signing for Ajax. Moulding a young squad and sticking closely to the attacking, high-intensity principles laid down by Johan Cruyff, he guided the Amsterdammers to second place in the table and the UEFA Europa League final.

• Appointed Dortmund coach in June 2017, he lasted only six months in the post; resurfaced at Leverkusen 12 months later, guiding Die Werkself to fourth place in the Bundesliga at the end of 2018/19.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• In 2012/13, Chelsea became the first defending champions to fail to get through a group stage since the UEFA Champions League began. (This record, like the others, includes the seasons between 1999/2000 and 2002/03 that featured a second group stage). In 1992/93, Barcelona were the reigning European Champion Clubs' Cup holders and lost 4-3 on aggregate in the second round to CSKA Moskva.

• 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.

Group stage
• Barcelona have finished as group winners on 20 occasions, four more than Real Madrid and five more than Bayern München and Manchester United. Barça also hold the record for the most unbeaten group stage campaigns with 12, four more than Real Madrid.

• Bayern München (2 April 2013 to 27 November 2013) and Real Madrid (23 April 2014 to 18 February 2015) jointly hold the record for successive wins in the UEFA Champions League proper with ten. Bayern surpassed the previous mark of nine, set by Barcelona between 18 September 2002 and 18 February 2003.

• Six teams have recorded six successive victories in a UEFA Champions League group stage: Milan (1992/93), Paris Saint-Germain (1994/95), Spartak Moskva (1995/96), Barcelona (2002/03, first group stage) and Real Madrid (2011/12 and 2014/15).

• Twenty-one teams have gone through a UEFA Champions League group stage without picking up a single point, most recently AEK Athens in 2018/19.

• In 2017/18, Paris Saint-Germain set a new group stage record by scoring 25 goals, with Liverpool (23) also eclipsing the old mark of 21 set by Borussia Dortmund in 2016/17. Manchester United (1998/99), Barcelona (2011/12, 2016/17) and Real Madrid (2013/14) all managed 20.

• Only Deportivo La Coruña (2004/05), Maccabi Haifa (2009/10) and Dinamo Zagreb (2016/17) have failed to score in a group stage.

• BATE Borisov conceded 24 goals in 2014/15, a new group stage record which was matched by Legia Warszawa in 2016/17. The previous mark, 22, was held by Dinamo Zagreb (2011/12) and Nordsjælland (2012/13); Malmö shipped 21 in 2015/16.

• No team has ever gone through a UEFA Champions League group stage without conceding a goal. Milan (1992/93), Ajax (1995/96), Juventus (1996/97 and 2004/05), Chelsea (2005/06), Liverpool (2005/06), Villarreal (2005/06), Manchester United (2010/11), Monaco (2014/15), Paris Saint-Germain (2015/16) and Barcelona (2017/18) all let in just one.

• Matchday six of the 2013/14 marked FCSB's 23rd successive game in the competition without a victory, surpassing the previous record of 22 set by Spartak Moskva between December 2000 and November 2006.

• Anderlecht hold the unwanted record for successive defeats in the competition, group stage to final, having lost 12 in a row between December 2003 and November 2005. Dinamo Zagreb are next with 11 consecutive losses on two occasions, from September 2011 to November 2012 and ongoing since September 2015.

• The lowest total for a team qualifying from the group stage is six points: Zenit in 2013/14 and Roma in 2015/16. Since three points for a win was introduced in 1995/96, nine teams have made it through with seven points: Legia Warszawa (1995/96), Dynamo Kyiv (1999/2000), Liverpool (2001/02, second group stage), in 2002/03 Lokomotiv Moskva (first group stage) and eventual finalists Juventus (second group stage), Rangers and Werder Bremen (2005/06), Galatasaray (2013/14) and Basel (2014/15).

• Napoli failed to qualify from their group with 12 points in 2013/14, the highest total of any team not to reach the next stage when the top two in each section progressed. Dynamo Kyiv (1999/2000, second group stage), Borussia Dortmund (2002/03, second group stage), PSV Eindhoven (2003/04), Olympiacos and Dynamo Kyiv (both 2004/05), Werder Bremen (2006/07), Manchester City (2011/12), Chelsea and Cluj (both 2012/13), Benfica (2013/14) and Porto (2015/16) all missed out with ten points.

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 that season's 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.

• 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.
