Match background Only this chapter

Bayern München will be looking to continue their impressive UEFA Champions League form by wrapping up first place in Group B away to Crvena zvezda, who are still harbouring slim qualification hopes of their own.

• While Bayern have breezed through the section with maximum points, securing their place in the round of 16 on Matchday 4, Crvena zvezda's prospects suffered a serious setback with two heavy defeats against Tottenham. That has left the Serbian champions third on three points, four behind Spurs, meaning they will be unable to finish in the top two if they do not beat Bayern or if Spurs beat Olympiacos in the other Matchday 5 fixture. Crvena zvezda will be confirmed in third place if they win and Olympiacos do not beat Spurs.

• Bayern, meanwhile, are five points clear in the section, which they kicked off with a 3-0 home win against Crvena zvezda, Kingsley Coman opening the scoring before late goals from Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller clinched the points. They will make sure of top spot if they win in Belgrade, or if Spurs fail to beat Olympiacos.

Highlights: Bayern 3-0 Crvena zvezda

Previous meetings
• This is the teams' seventh meeting; their last before this season had come in the 2007/08 UEFA Cup group stage when Bayern won in Belgrade, the Munich club twice coming from behind before a Toni Kroos winner four minutes into added time.

• Their most famous fixtures came in the semi-finals of Crvena zvezda's 1990/91 European Cup triumph, the club from what was then Yugoslavia coming from behind to win 2-1 in the Munich first leg thanks to goals from Darko Pančev and Dejan Savićević and holding on in a pulsating second leg in Belgrade to snatch a 2-2 draw – and 4-3 aggregate victory – thanks to a 90th-minute own goal from Bayern's Klaus Augenthaler.

• The 1979/80 UEFA Cup third round tie between the teams had been equally closely fought, Bayern winning 2-0 in the Munich first leg and going through 4-3 overall after rallying from 3-0 down in Belgrade, two Dieter Hoeness goals in four second-half minutes proving crucial.

Highlights: Crvena zvezda 0-4 Tottenham

Form guide
Crvena zvezda
• After conceding twice late on at Bayern, Crvena zvezda were facing another defeat when Olympiacos led 1-0 at half-time in Belgrade on Matchday 2, but second-half strikes from Miloš Vulić, Nemanja Milunović and Richmond Boakye secured a 3-1 win. However, a reality check followed as Tottenham inflicted a 5-0 away defeat on the Serbian side on Matchday 3 to equal Crvena zvezda's biggest loss in Europe; a 4-0 reverse in the return fixture two weeks later represented their heaviest home defeat in UEFA competition.

• In 2018/19 the Belgrade club reached the group stage from the first qualifying round and went on to finish fourth in their group, although they did claim a first UEFA Champions League group stage win for Serbia with a 2-0 home defeat of eventual champions Liverpool on Matchday 4, Milan Pavkov scoring both goals. They also held Napoli 0-0 at home on their Matchday 1 debut, although their last home fixture in the section was a 4-1 loss against Paris.

Highlights: Crvena zvezda 3-1 Olympiacos

• This season, Vladan Milojević's side again started their European campaign in the first qualifying round, where they were 2-1 aggregate winners against Sūduva of Lithuania (0-0 a, 2-1 h). They subsequently came through tight ties against HJK Helsinki (2-0 h, 1-2 a) and Copenhagen (1-1 h, 1-1 a, 7-6 pens) before beating Young Boys on away goals in the play-offs (2-2 a, 1-1 h).

• Crvena zvezda have won only four of their last 20 European fixtures (D8 L8) although they have now lost ony two of their last 15 UEFA matches in Belgrade (W7 D6) and only three of the last 22 (W11 D8).

• Crvena zvezda's last home game against a German club was a 1-0 defeat of Köln in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League group stage; that 2007 defeat by Bayern is their only loss in their last 12 games against Bundesliga clubs in Belgrade (W8 D3).

• European champions in 1991, Crvena zvezda claimed their second successive Serbian league title in 2018/19 and a 30th national championship overall.

Highlights: Olympiacos 2-3 Bayern

• Bayern made it four wins from four, and secured progress to the knockout stages, with a 2-0 defeat of Olympiacos in Munich last time out; they had beaten the same opponents 3-2 in Greece.

• Bayern scored seven goals in a UEFA Champions League match for a record fifth time on Matchday 2, Serge Gnabry becoming the 14th player to score four times in a match in the competition in a 7-2 success at Tottenham, and the first to hit four in the second half. It was the 19th time Bayern had scored five or more goals in a UEFA Champions League match, level with Barcelona as a competition record.

• Bayern and Paris Saint-Germain (Group A) are the only sides with maximum points after four matches. The German champions are also the competition's top-scoring team with 15 goals, two more than group rivals Tottenham.

• This is Bayern's 23rd UEFA Champions League group campaign, fewer only than Barcelona and Real Madrid (both 24). They have won their section 15 times, although their first-place finish in 2018/19 was their first since 2015/16.

Watch Bayern hit seven at Tottenham

• Twelve months ago Bayern picked up seven points away, and 14 overall, to finish first in Group E ahead of Ajax, Benfica and AEK Athens. They drew 0-0 at Liverpool in the first leg of their round of 16 tie, but bowed out after going down 3-1 in the home return.

• Champions of Germany for a record 29th time last season – with a landmark seventh successive Bundesliga title – Bayern had reached the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals or better in seven successive campaigns before losing to Liverpool.

• Bayern are unbeaten in their last 11 European away games (W8 D3), scoring at least two goals in all but the goalless draw at Liverpool last season. Before winning at Benfica the Munich club had not kept a clean sheet on their UEFA Champions League travels in 14 matches; they have now managed three in the last six.

• That defeat at Crvena zvezda in December 1979 is Bayern's only loss away to a Serbian club (W2 D2), with their 2007 UEFA Cup success against the same opponents their most recent visit. Home and away, they have now won their last four games against Serbian sides, scoring three goals in each of them.

Head coach Only this chapter

Vladan Milojević

Date of birth: 09 March 1970
Nationality: Serbian
Playing career: Bečej, Radnički Beograd, PAS Giannina, Kalamata, Crvena zvezda, Apollon Athens, Panathinaikos, Iraklis, Akratitos
Coaching career: Iraklis (youth), Crvena zvezda (youth), Javor, Čukarički, Omonia, Panionios, Crvena zvezda

• Born in Arandelovac, Milojević began playing football in Crvena zvezda's youth sides before moving on to the first team of Yugoslav league clubs Bečej and Radnički Beograd.

• Milojević moved to Greece in 1993, initially joining second division side PAS Giannina, and later helping Kalamata to promotion to the top flight. He became the first foreign central defender to play for Panathinaikos when he joined in July 1997 and stayed for three years, going on to have spells at Iraklis and Akratitos before ending his playing career in 2004.

• Appointed to coach at Iraklis's academies in February 2008, Milojević spent 2011/12 in charge of Javor before guiding Čukarički to the club's first major trophy with a shock Serbian Cup final win over Partizan in 2014/15. Took charge at Cypriot club Omonia between November 2015 and May 2016.

• Returned to Greece in August 2016, taking over at Panionios, who were second to eventual champions Olympiacos for much of the campaign, aided by a notable away win in Piraeus. Eventually finished fifth in what proved Milojević's sole season in charge.

• Appointed Crvena zvezda coach on 5 June 2017, he won the Serbian Super League in his debut campaign and kicked off 2018/19 by taking the Belgrade outfit into the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time. Although they bowed out after matchday six, the Red-and-Whites had the consolation of a home victory against eventual champions Liverpool – Serbia's first ever group win – and ended the season by retaining the league title. They then came through four qualifying rounds to earn an immediate UEFA Champions League group stage return at the start of 2019/20.


Hans-Dieter Flick

Date of birth: 24 February 1965
Nationality: German
Playing career: Sandhausen, Bayern, Köln
Coaching career: Bammental, Hoffenheim, Salzburg (assistant), Germany (assistant), Bayern (assistant, caretaker)

• As a player, Flick's outstanding performances in the lower leagues earned him a Bayern contract at the age of 20. An industrious midfielder who was more valued as a team player rather than a goalscorer, he went on to make over 100 appearances in Munich before departing for Köln, where a series of injuries forced him to retire aged just 28.

• Flick's first coaching assignment led him to Hoffenheim when they were still in the fourth division, leading them to promotion in 2000/01. He then had a short spell as Giovanni Trapattoni's assistant at Salzburg, until Joachim Löw asked him to be his right-hand man for Germany's national team in summer 2006.

• His work for Die Mannschaft went well beyond the pitch, as Flick invested a considerable amount of time in setting up databases and technical information about players and their training development. This initiative led to a switch to the role of sporting director following the FIFA World Cup victory in 2014.

• Departed that role in January 2017, returning to Hoffenheim as CEO, but only stayed for a few months.

• At the beginning of 2019/20, Flick joined Niko Kovač's coaching team back at Bayern and, following the Croatian's departure on 3 November, took charge of the team on an interim basis.

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.
