Match background Only this chapter

A Matchday 3 draw in Ukraine kept Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk level on points in Group C and they now resume their rivalry in Zagreb for a potentially pivotal encounter.

• Both sides might have taken three points at the OSK Metalist Stadion in Kharkiv on 22 October, Yevhen Konoplyanka giving the home side an early lead before goals from Dani Olmo and Mislav Oršić, a penalty, turned the match in Dinamo's favour; Dodô's 75th-minute equaliser earned Shakhtar a draw and ensured the teams go into this game in Croatia level on four points, five behind section leaders Manchester City and four above Atalanta.

Highlights: Shakhtar Donetsk 2-2 Dinamo Zagreb

Previous meetings
• The sides' only past fixtures before Matchday 3 came in the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round, Shakhtar winning both matches. The Ukrainian side triumphed 2-0 in the Donetsk first leg, before a 3-1 success in Zagreb.

• Darijo Srna, now Shakhtar's assistant coach, scored the club's opening goal of that tie, with goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov playing all 180 minutes.

Form guide
• An Oršić hat-trick helped Dinamo to a 4-0 defeat of Atalanta in Zagreb in their first Group C game, making the 26-year-old the first player to hit three goals for a Croatian club in a UEFA Champions League group encounter. They then lost 2-0 at Manchester City.

• Dinamo have won only five of their 39 matches in the UEFA Champions League group stage (D6 L28); they suffered six defeats in their most recent participation, in 2016/17. They had lost 11 successive matches, and won only one of 27 (D2 L24) – a 2-1 defeat of Arsenal in Zagreb in September 2015 that ended a 16-year wait for a victory in the competition proper – before beating Atalanta.

Matchday 1: : Dinamo Zagreb 4-0 Atalanta

• The 2-0 loss at City on Matchday 2 was Dinamo's 13th successive away defeat in the UEFA Champions League group stage, since a 2-2 draw at Marseille on 2 November 1999 – a run of defeats that was ended at Shakhtar.

• Dinamo are unbeaten in nine home European fixtures (W7 D2). A second-leg loss to Young Boys in last season's UEFA Champions League play-offs (1-2) is their only defeat in the last 14 such matches (W10 D3).

• Dinamo claimed their 13th Croatian league title in 14 seasons in 2018/19 – and 20th in all – but their UEFA Champions League campaign came to an early end with a play-off defeat against Young Boys. Moving into the UEFA Europa League, the Zagreb club finished first in their section before getting the better of Viktoria Plzeň in the round of 32, then bowing out after extra time against Benfica in the last 16 (1-0 h, 0-3 a).

• Nenad Bjelica's side started this season's UEFA Champions League in the second qualifying round, easing past Georgia's Saburtalo 5-0 on aggregate (2-0 a, 3-0 h) before a 5-1 victory over two games against Ferencváros of Hungary (1-1 h, 4-0 a). They then overcame Rosenborg in the play-offs, winning 2-0 at home before a 1-1 draw in Norway.

• The Zagreb club have never beaten Ukrainian opposition in UEFA competition, home or away (D3 L8); they have been defeated in four of the five home games, the exception a 1-1 draw against Dynamo Kyiv in the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League group stage secured by an Ivan Krstanović penalty five minutes into added time that ended Dinamo's 11-match losing streak in the competition proper.

• This is Dinamo's seventh UEFA Champions League group campaign overall, and fifth in nine seasons. They have failed to qualify from the group stage in all six previous attempts. In fact, 2018/19 marked the first time in 14 UEFA club competition group stage campaigns – including eight in the UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League – that the Croatian club had made it through to the next phase.

Matchday 2 highlights: Atalanta 1-2 Shakhtar Donetsk

• Beaten 3-0 by Manchester City in Kharkiv on Matchday 1, Shakhtar came from behind to win 2-1 at Atalanta in their first away fixture, substitute Manor Solomon scoring the winning goal five minutes into added time.

• Shakhtar have won only two of their last ten UEFA Champions League matches (D4 L4).

• The Donetsk club picked up four points away from home in last season's group stage; the win at Atalanta was only their third in their last 13 away UEFA Champions League matches, group stage to final (D2 L8).

• Quarter-finalists in 2010/11, Shakhtar won only one of their six matches in last season's group stage, collecting six points to finish behind Manchester City and Lyon in Group F. They then went down 6-3 on aggregate to Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 (2-2 h, 1-4 a).

• Shakhtar have got out of their UEFA Champions League group in three of their last six participations.

Watch: Five great Shakhtar wins

• The Pitmen's 2008 games against Dinamo were their only contests against a Croatian club before this season.

• Shakhtar qualified as winners of the Ukrainian league, claiming the title for the 12th time in 2018/19, when they completed a domestic double for the third season in succession.

Links and trivia
• Shakhtar assistant coach Srna won a record 134 caps for Croatia, scoring 22 goals. As a player with Hajduk Split, he won the Croatian league title in 2001 and the domestic cup in 2000 and 2003.

• Current Shakhtar coach Luís Castro worked with Dinamo's Ivo Pinto in Porto's youth teams between 2008 and 2011.

Latest news

• Petar Stojanović's next appearance in UEFA club competition will be his 50th.

Head coach Only this chapter

Nenad Bjelica

Date of birth: 20 August 1971

Playing career:
Osijek (twice), Albacete, Real Betis, Las Palmas, Kaiserslautern, Admira, Kärnten

Coaching career:
Kärnten, Lustenau, Wolfsberg, Austria Wien, Spezia, Lech Poznań, Dinamo Zagreb

• Aged 19, Bjelica made his professional debut for home-town club Osijek, scoring seven goals in 23 games in his first full season. In 1992 the Croatian joined Spanish club Albacete where he spent four successful years before spells at Betis and Las Palmas. In summer 1999 he rejoined Osijek for a year, prior to closing out his career in Germany and Austria.

• The playmaker, voted Croatia's player of the year in 2000, was awarded his international debut against Austria in 2001 and was capped nine times by his country. He made two appearances at UEFA EURO 2004 in Portugal.

• Bjelica started life in the dugout in autumn 2007 as player-coach at Kärnten – registering 29 Austrian second division outings that season. Then hung up his boots but remained in charge until early 2009, subsequently taking over at Lustenau and Wolfsberg, whom he guided from the third tier to the Austrian Bundesliga.

• During his final campaign with Wolfsberg, in 2012/13, Bjelica's side missed out on UEFA Europa League qualification by a solitary point. Bjelica left his post to replace Peter Stöger at Austria Wien and soon led his new employers to the UEFA Champions League group stage, overcoming Dinamo Zagreb in the play-offs, but nevertheless only lasted in the post until February 2014.

• Took charge of Italian Serie B side Spezia between June 2014 and November 2015, before two seasons in Poland with Lech. Appointed Dinamo coach on 15 May 2018, within days the club had won both the Croatian league and cup; retained the league title in 2018/19, Bjelica also taking the club to the UEFA Europa League round of 16.


Luís Castro

Date of birth: 3 September 1961
Nationality: Portuguese
Playing career: Leiria (twice), Vieirense, Vitória SC, Elvas, Fafe, Águeda
Coaching career: Águeda, Mealhada, Estarreja, Sanjoanense, Penafiel, Porto (youth), Porto B (twice), Porto, Rio Ave, Chaves, Vitória SC, Shakhtar Donetsk

• A right-back, most of Luís Castro's 17-year playing career was spent in the lower leagues, although he did feature for Vitória SC and Elvas in the top flight.

• His seven years at Águeda, which started in 1990, marked Castro's longest stay at a club and was only ended by his retirement in 1997; moved into coaching with the same team the following year, leaving his post in 2000.

• Went on to have short spells with lower-league Mealhada, Estarreja and Sanjoanense before taking charge of top-flight Penafiel in 2004; remained in charge for two years, guiding them to 11th place in his first campaign – which included a 1-0 home win against Benfica – but leaving at the end of the following campaign after relegation.

• Moved into Porto's youth system, going on to spend ten years at the Dragons, including a short stint as caretaker coach to the first team at the end of the 2013/14 campaign; guided the club to third place in the league – and past Napoli in the UEFA Europa League – having stepped up following Paulo Fonseca's departure.

• After returning to Porto's B team, winning the second division title in 2015/16, Castro moved on to become head coach of Rio Ave; spent a season there, then one at both Chaves and Vitória SC; in June 2019 he replaced Fonseca again, taking over at Shakhtar following his compatriot's departure for Roma.

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.
