Match background Only this chapter

Internazionale welcome Borussia Dortmund to Milan knowing they need to kick-start their stuttering Group F campaign.

• The Italian side have picked up only one point from their first two fixtures and trail both Dortmund and Barcelona, who beat the Nerazzurri on Matchday 2, by three points.

• Inter, however, have struggled at home to German visitors in recent years and will hope to improve on that record in their first games against Dortmund in more than 25 years.

Previous meetings
• The teams last met in the 1993/94 UEFA Cup quarter-finals, Inter – who would go on to lift the trophy, beating Salzburg in the final – going through thanks to a 3-1 first-leg success in Germany in which Wim Jonk scored twice. They were left hanging on, however, after going two goals down back at San Siro – Antonio Manicone's 80th-minute goal ultimately making sure of progress.

• Inter had also come out on top when the teams met in the European Champion Clubs' Cup semi-finals in April 1964, following up a 2-2 draw at Dortmund's former Stadion Rote Erde home with a 2-0 victory at San Siro, Sandro Mazzola scoring in both legs. Once again the Milan club went on to take the trophy, beating Real Madrid 3-1 in the Vienna final to win their first European Cup.

Highlights: Barcelona 2-1 Inter

Form guide
• Having drawn 1-1 at home to Slavia Praha on Matchday 1, Inter went down 2-1 at Barcelona last time out to make it four European fixtures without a win (D2 L2), with only two goals scored in that sequence. They are without a victory in their last six UEFA Champions League matches (D3 L3), scoring just four goals.

• Fourth in Serie A in 2018/19, Inter are the last Italian team to win the UEFA Champions League, in 2010 – their third European Cup triumph, and first in 45 years.

• This is the 13th time Inter have been in the group stage – last season was their first appearance since 2011/12.

• In 2018/19 Inter won their first two fixtures, against Tottenham and PSV Eindhoven, but picked up only two more points to lose out to Spurs on head-to-head record and finished third in Group B, which was won by Barcelona. Moving into the UEFA Europa League, they knocked out Rapid Wien in the round of 32 (1-0 a, 4-0 h) but lost 1-0 in the home second leg, and on aggregate, against Eintracht Frankfurt in the last 16.

• Defeat by Eintracht ended Inter's six-match unbeaten home run in European matches (W4 D2).

Highlights: Inter 1-1 Slavia Praha

• However, the Eintracht result was also Inter's fourth successive home defeat against German visitors; a 4-0 UEFA Champions League group stage defeat of Werder Bremen in September 2010 was their only win in their last seven such fixtures (D1 L5).

• Indeed, home and away Inter are without a win in six games against Bundesliga opponents (D1 L5); a 3-2 victory at Bayern München in March 2011 is their only success in nine matches (D1 L7) although one of only three wins in their last 16 matches with German clubs (D4 L9) came against Bayern in the 2010 UEFA Champions League final (2-0).

• Last season was the first time in nine UEFA Champions League campaigns Inter had failed to progress from their group.

• Dortmund have won only two of their last seven UEFA Champions League matches (D2 L3), although one of those wins came last time out, 2-0 at Slavia. They were three games without a goal before their victory in Prague, drawing 0-0 at home to Barcelona on Matchday 1.

Highlights: Slavia Praha 0-2 Dortmund

• Second in the Bundesliga in 2018/19, this is Dortmund's 14th UEFA Champions League campaign; they were winners in 1997, and runners-up in 2013. BVB have reached the round of 16 in five of their last six participations.

• In last season's group stage, Lucien Favre's side won at Club Brugge (1-0) and Monaco (2-0) either side of a 2-0 loss at Atlético Madrid that featured the only goals scored against them in their six matches. Dortmund conceded the fewest goals in the group stage (two) and kept the most clean sheets (five), but got no further than the last 16, losing both legs against Tottenham (0-3 a, 0-1 h).

• Dortmund have managed only three victories in their last 13 European away matches (D4 L6), although all of those wins have come in their last five matches (L2) – and all in the UEFA Champions League.

• BVB last visited Italy in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League round of 32, drawing 1-1 in their second leg at Atalanta to go through 4-3 on aggregate. They lost their first seven away matches against Italian clubs, including those two at Inter, but have improved that record in their last nine contests (W3 D2 L4). Their one UEFA Champions League triumph came at the expense of Italian opposition in the 1997 final when they beat Juventus 3-1 in Munich.

Highlights: Dortmund 0-0 Barcelona

• Łukasz Piszczek suffered an adductors injury on 5 October in Freiburg, returning as an added-time substitute on Saturday.

FootballPeople weeks
The FootballPeople weeks take place from 10 to 24 October 2019 and are organised by UEFA's social responsibility partner Fare. The weeks are a global campaign aimed at tackling discrimination and celebrating diversity in football. The UEFA Champions League is offering its full support to the FootballPeople weeks; teams will line up for a mixed photo with the referees, while an #EqualGame hashtag will also be on display. Videos will be played on giant screens at stadiums across Europe, and child mascots will be wearing #FootballPeople t-shirts. UEFA's collaboration with the Fare network's FootballPeople weeks has been running since 2001. The aim of this initiative fits in perfectly with the goals of #EqualGame, which is looking to promote inclusion, diversity and accessibility.

Made Serie A debut with hometown club Lecce aged 16 in 1985/86 but was not a regular until 1988/89 when his side returned to the top flight after two seasons away. Joined Juventus in November 1991.

• Spent the next 13 seasons at Juve, later describing the famous black-and-white shirt as his "second skin". Won five league titles, the UEFA Champions League in 1995/96 and the UEFA Cup in 1992/93 in addition to triumphs in the UEFA Super Cup, Italian Cup and European/South American Cup, wearing the captain's armband from 1996. Capped 20 times by Italy, he was part of the squads that finished runners-up at the 1994 FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO 2000.

• Started coaching career as assistant at Siena in 2005, taking over Serie B side Arezzo the following season. After leading Bari and Siena to the top flight in 2009 and 2011 respectively, he signed a two-year contract with Juventus.

• Wasted no time in revamping the squad and enjoyed a debut season to remember as the Bianconeri claimed the Scudetto without losing a single game, suffering their sole defeat of the season against Napoli in the Coppa Italia final. Led Juventus to a second successive title in 2013 and made it three in a row the following year, before stepping down in July 2014.

• Appointed Italy coach on a two-year deal a month later, he guided the Azzurri undefeated to UEFA EURO 2016 and took them to the quarter-finals in France before opting for a new challenge at Chelsea. Proved an instant success in England, winning the Premier League title and reaching the FA Cup final in his first season, and won the FA Cup in his second campaign only to be relieved of his duties a month later; after a year's sabbatical he was appointed Inter coach on 31 May 2019.


Lucien Favre

Date of birth: 2 November 1957
Nationality: Swiss
Playing career: Oulens, Lausanne, Neuchâtel Xamax, Servette (twice), Toulouse
Coaching career: Echallens (youth), Echallens, Yverdon-Sport, Servette, Zürich, Hertha Berlin, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Nice, Borussia Dortmund

• Capped 24 times by Switzerland, Favre was a playmaker during his playing days, with his career blighted by a persistent knee injury. Nevertheless, he won the 1985 Swiss league with Servette, two years after being voted Footballer of the Year.

• During his first stint as a coach he guided Echallens into the second tier for the first time in their history, before winning promotion to the top flight at his new club Yverdon. In 2001 he won the Swiss Cup with Servette, also guiding the club to the UEFA Cup fourth round, and joined Zürich in spring 2003, winning the Swiss Cup (2005) as well as back-to-back league titles in 2006 and 2007 and being voted Swiss coach of the year two years running.

• In summer 2007, he left for Germany to join Hertha, unexpectedly guiding the capital side to fourth place in 2008/09. He was voted coach of the year in Germany after that term, but left his post in September.

• Took over at Gladbach in February 2011 and guided them to safety via the relegation play-offs before finishing fourth the next season to return the club to Europe after 16 years. In 2014/15, a third-placed finish in the Bundesliga earned Gladbach a UEFA Champions League group stage place and Favre Germany's coach of the year award for a second time.

• Resigned in September 2015 and took over at French side Nice the following May, overseeing a third-placed finish in 2016/17. Returned to Germany to take charge of Dortmund in May 2018, the club finishing as Bundesliga runners-up in his debut campaign.

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.
