Match background Only this chapter

LOSC Lille have plenty of work to do to get up to speed in Group H, while Valencia are looking to bounce back from a dispiriting defeat as the teams meet in northern France.

• The Ligue 1 club have lost both of their two first fixtures on their UEFA Champions League return while Valencia kicked off with a notable win at Chelsea only to come up short at home to Ajax.

Previous meetings
• Valencia have dominated past games between the sides, winning three of the four matches. LOSC avoided defeat in the first match, earning a 1-1 home draw in the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League group stage, but went down 3-1 in the away fixture.

• When the sides reconvened in the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League group stage, Valencia won 2-0 at home and 1-0 in France, Jonas scoring all three of their goals.

Highlights: LOSC 1-2 Chelsea

Form guide
• LOSC's first UEFA Champions League group game in seven seasons ended in disappointment on Matchday 1, Ajax inflicting a tenth loss in their 17 away games in the competition proper (W3 D4) with a 3-0 victory in Amsterdam.

• The French club's home game against Chelsea last time out ended in a 2-1 defeat, extending their run without a home victory in the UEFA Champions League proper to nine matches.

• 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 3 in 2006/07. Their subsequent record is D3 L6.

• LOSC 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 L6.

Highlights: Ajax 3-0 LOSC

• 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).

• This is LOSC's seventh home game against a Spanish club; they were unbeaten in the first five matches (W2 D3) before losing to Valencia in December 2012. Home and away, they have won only two of their 11 matches (D4 L5) and none of the last five (D1 L4), and have yet to score more than one goal in any of those games.

Highlights: Valencia 0-3 Ajax

• Rodrigo's 74th-minute goal gave Valencia three points at Chelsea in their first fixture, although they needed a late penalty miss from Ross Barkley to preserve that advantage. They went down 3-0 at home to Ajax last time out.

• The Matchday 1 win at Chelsea ended Valencia's five-match run without an away victory in the UEFA Champions League (D2 L3), and was their fourth victory in their last 11 away games in the competition, group stage to final (D3 L4).

• Valencia have scored only twice in their last six away UEFA Champions League matches.

• Fourth in the Spanish Liga in 2018/19, this is Valencia's 12th UEFA Champions League group stage campaign. Finalists in both 1999/2000 and 2000/01, they have not reached the last 16 since 2012/13.

• Twelve months ago Los Blanquinegros were also in Group H, finishing third behind Juventus and Manchester United – who they beat 2-1 at Mestalla on matchday six having earlier held out for a goalless draw at Old Trafford – to move into the UEFA Europa League. There they overcame Celtic (3-0 on aggregate), Krasnodar (3-2) and Villarreal (5-1) to reach the semi-finals, where they came up short against Arsenal, losing 3-1 in London and 4-2 at home.

Highlights: Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

• Valencia's last trip to France brought a 1-0 win at Lyon in the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League group stage; they have lost just twice in 12 previous away matches against French clubs (W5 D5).

• Home and away, Valencia have lost only four of their 24 matches against French clubs (W15 D5), although three of those defeats have come in their last six matches.

LOSC Lille

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.

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.


Albert Celades

Date of birth: 29 September 1975
Nationality: Spanish
Playing career: Barcelona, Celta Vigo, Real Madrid, Bordeaux (loan), Zaragoza, New York Red Bulls
Coaching career: Spain U16, Spain U21, Spain U17, Spain (assistant), Real Madrid (assistant), Valencia

• A defensive midfielder, Celades came through Barcelona's youth ranks to win two Spanish Liga titles, two Copa del Rey trophies, the 1997 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup and the 1997 UEFA Super Cup during four years in the first team.

• After a year with Celta, Celades became one of a select bunch of players to have played for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, winning a further two league titles as well as picking up a UEFA Champions League winners' medal in 2002, though he was not involved in the final win against Bayer Leverkusen.

• He also had spells with Bordeaux and Zaragoza and spent a season in the United States with New York Red Bulls before retiring in 2009. Won four caps for Spain and was part of their 1998 FIFA World Cup squad.

• Celades took charge of Spain's Under-16 squad in 2013, before being promoted to U21 coach following Julen Lopetegui's departure for Porto a year later. He led La Rojita to the final of the 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship, which they lost to Germany.

• In August 2018 he was appointed as Lopetegui's assistant at Real Madrid, having previously served under him with the senior Spanish national team, but left the post at the end of October following Lopetegui's dismissal; took his first position as a club head coach in September 2019, succeeding Marcelino at Valencia.

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.
