Match background Only this chapter

LOSC Lille and Chelsea will both look to kick-start their respective UEFA Champions League campaigns as they meet at the Stade Pierre Mauroy in the second round of games.

• While LOSC began Group H with a 3-0 loss at last year's semi-finalists Ajax, Chelsea – UEFA Europa League winners in 2018/19 – went down at home to Valencia, in the process surrendering an unbeaten European record at Stamford Bridge that had lasted for more than three years.

• This is the sides' first meeting, although both have recent experience against teams from their opponents' country.

Highlights: Ajax 3-0 LOSC

Form guide
• LOSC's first UEFA Champions League group game in seven seasons ended in disappointment on matchday one, Ajax inflicting a tenth loss in their 17 away games in the competition proper (W3 D4).

• 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.

• 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).

• The French club have not won a home European match since a 2-0 defeat of Copenhagen in the UEFA Champions League play-offs in August 2012; their record since is D4 L5.

• Les Dogues lost all three home games in their last group appearance, in 2012/13; their last home victory in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final, was a 3-1 defeat of AEK Athens on matchday three in 2006/07. Their subsequent record is D3 L5.

• This is LOSC's first home game against an English club since a goalless draw with Everton in the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League group stage; a 3-0 defeat in the return made it one win in their last six matches with Premier League sides, home and away (D1 L4).

• At home, LOSC have won two of their six games against English visitors (D3); the sole defeat was a 1-0 loss to Manchester United in the 2006/07 UEFA Champions League round of 16. That game was held in Lens; LOSC are unbeaten without conceding in their two games against English clubs in their new stadium (W1 D1).

Highlights: Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

• Ross Barkley missed a late penalty on matchday one as Chelsea returned to the UEFA Champions League after a year away with a 1-0 loss to Valencia – their first European reverse at Stamford Bridge in 11 matches (W7 D4), since a 2-1 loss against another French club, Paris Saint-Germain, in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg.

• Chelsea were also beaten 2-1 in the away leg of that tie with Paris four seasons ago, and have not won in their last four matches against Ligue 1 sides (D2 L2). Their sole success in eight away matches in France (D2 L5) is a 3-0 win at Paris in the 2004/05 group stage.

• Third in last season's Premier League, Chelsea also qualified for the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League group stage as the winners of the UEFA Europa League, and are taking part for the 16th time; only once, as holders in 2012/13, have they failed to reach the knockout stages.

• The Blues were UEFA Europa League winners under Maurizio Sarri in 2018/19, beating Arsenal 4-1 in the competition's first all-English final since Tottenham overcame Wolves in the 1972 UEFA Cup. Eden Hazard scored twice at the Baku Olympic Stadium, Olivier Giroud and Pedro Rodríguez also finding the net as Chelsea claimed their second UEFA Europa League title having also triumphed in 2013, their only other appearance in the competition.

• The London club have scored three goals or more in five of their last nine European matches. Their tally of 36 goals in last season's UEFA Europa League was one short of the competition record set by Porto in 2010/11.

• Chelsea were unbeaten in European competition last season, claiming the UEFA Europa League with a record of W12 D3 F36 A10. Before losing to Valencia on matchday one, their last continental defeat had come at Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg in March 2018 (0-3), although they did lose on penalties against Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup in August following a 2-2 draw after 120 minutes in Istanbul.

• Chelsea are undefeated in seven European away matches (W5 D2), and have won ten of their last 19 European away fixtures (D5 L4).

Head coach Only this chapter

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.


Frank Lampard

Date of birth: 20 June 1978
Playing career:
West Ham, Swansea (loan), Chelsea, Manchester City, New York City
Coaching career: Derby, Chelsea

• The son of former West Ham left-back Frank Lampard Sr, he started his career with the Hammers as an apprentice and had a short spell on loan at Swansea before making his debut for the east London outfit. Moved across London to join Chelsea in 2001.

• A key figure in Chelsea's back-to-back title wins in 2004/05 and 2005/06, he equalised in the 2008 UEFA Champions League final defeat against Manchester United and scored the winner in the 2009 FA Cup decider versus Everton.

• Played a key role in Chelsea's remarkable 2012 UEFA Champions League success by converting penalties in successive rounds against Napoli and Benfica and another in the final shoot-out win against Bayern München. Surpassed Bobby Tambling's club record of 202 goals with a second-half double against Aston Villa in May 2013 and captained Chelsea to UEFA Europa League glory at the expense of Benfica in Amsterdam four days later.

• First capped by England in 1999, he scored three times at UEFA EURO 2004, his first major tournament; also featured at the FIFA World Cup in 2006 and 2010, plus UEFA EURO 2012, before retiring from international football after the 2014 World Cup having scored 29 goals in 106 England appearances, including a record nine penalties.

• Ended a 13-year playing association with Chelsea in 2014, going on to spend a year with both Manchester City and New York City before announcing his retirement in February 2017. Appointed Derby manager in May 2018, he took the club to the Championship play-off final in his sole season in charge; returned to Stamford Bridge as manager in July 2019 to succeed Maurizio Sarri, his Chelsea side losing on penalties to Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup in Lampard's second match in charge.

Competition facts Only this chapter

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.

• 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.
