Match background Only this chapter

Lokomotiv Moskva and Bayer Leverkusen are both battling to stay in Group D contention as they meet in Russia in the penultimate round of matches.

• The Russian club were 2-1 winners in Germany on Matchday 1 in the first UEFA encounter between the teams – thanks to first-half goals from Grzegorz Krychowiak and Dmitri Barinov either side of a Benedikt Höwedes own goal – but have not picked up a point since. Leverkusen joined their Russian opponents on three points with a 2-1 defeat of Atlético Madrid last time out, having lost their first three games.

• With already-qualified Juventus top of the section on ten points, three ahead of Atlético, Lokomotiv will be unable to finish in the top two if they lose to Leverkusen, or if they draw and Atlético avoid defeat against Juventus. Lokomotiv will be confirmed in third place if they and Atlético both win.

Highlights: Leverkusen 1-2 Lokomotiv Moskva

• Leverkusen will be unable to finish in the top two if they fail to beat Lokomotiv and will be confirmed in fourth place with defeat.

Form guide
• The 2-1 win at Leverkusen on Matchday 1 was Lokomotiv's first away victory in the UEFA Champions League since a 2-1 win at Galatasaray in the 2002/03 first group stage. Their record between those two victories, qualifying included, was D4 L9.

• The Russian club were beaten 2-0 at home by Atlético in their second fixture before losing 2-1 both away and at home to Juventus, scoring first in Turin and conceding an added-time winner in Moscow.

• Second in the Russian Premier League last season, when they won the Russian Cup for the third time in five years, Lokomotiv are in the group stage for the fifth time overall and the second in successive seasons. Their 2018/19 appearance was their first since 2003/04.

Highlights: Lokomotiv Moskva 1-2 Juventus

• Last season Loko finished bottom of a section involving Porto, Schalke and Galatasaray, losing five games and picking up their only points with a 2-0 home defeat of the Turkish club on Matchday 5.

• Loko lost at home to Schalke (0-1) and Porto (1-3) before beating Galatasaray in last season's group stage. However, they have still won four of their last eight home matches in the UEFA Champions League proper.

• Lokomotiv have won only five of their last 15 European fixtures in Moscow, losing eight including five of the last six.

• Lokomotiv's last visit from a German club was that defeat by Schalke last season; they have lost all four home matches against Bundesliga teams, scoring only one goal while conceding nine.

• The win at Leverkusen on Matchday 1 ended Loko's run of seven successive defeats against German clubs, home and away.

Highlights: Leverkusen 2-1 Atlético

• This is Leverkusen's 100th match in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final. They are the 22nd club to reach that landmark.

• Having lost at home to Lokomotiv, Leverkusen went down 3-0 at Juventus and 1-0 at Atlético, before beating the Spanish side at the BayArena last time out – just their third win in their last 17 UEFA Champions League matches (D8 L6).

• Fourth in last season's Bundesliga, 2002 runners-up Leverkusen are in the UEFA Champions League group stage for the 12th time, and the first since 2016/17. They have reached the last 16 or better in seven of their last eight campaigns, most recently getting to the 2016/17 round of 16 where they lost to Atlético (2-4 h, 0-0 a).

• Absent from Europe in 2017/18, for the first time in eight years, last season Leverkusen finished first in their UEFA Europa League section ahead of Zürich, AEK Larnaca and Ludogorets, but lost on away goals to Russian side Krasnodar in the round of 32 (0-0 a, 1-1 h).

Highlights: Atlético 1-0 Leverkusen

• Despite the defeats in Turin and Madrid, Die Werkself have lost only four of their last 13 European away games (W4 D5), and racked up ten goals on the road in last season's UEFA Europa League group stage.

• The loss at Juventus ended Leverkusen's five-match unbeaten run in away UEFA Champions League games (W1 D4), since a 3-2 group stage loss at Roma in November 2015.

• Leverkusen had drawn four games in succession against Russian clubs before losing to Loko this season; they lost their first two games in Russia, both in Moscow, but are unbeaten in the last four (W2 D2).

Head coach Only this chapter

Yuri Semin

Date of birth: 11 May 1947
Nationality: Russian
Playing career: Spartak Orel, Spartak Moskva, Dinamo Moskva, Kairat Almaty, Chkalovets Novosibirsk, Lokomotiv Moskva, Kuban Krasnodar
Coaching career: Pamir Dushanbe, Lokomotiv Moskva (four times), Russia, Dinamo Moskva, Dynamo Kyiv (twice), Gabala, Mordovia Saransk, Anji

• One of the most successful Russian coaches of recent times, Semin's playing career took off in 1965 when he was invited to join Spartak Moskva after starring for Russia's Under-21 team at a tournament between the Soviet republics.

• After leaving Spartak, Semin – a midfielder or striker – moved to rivals Dinamo where he won the 1970 USSR Cup. Retired due to injury in 1980 while captain of Kuban having played 280 Soviet League games, scoring 39 goals.

• After receiving his coaching licence he started work at Pamir in 1983 but made his name at Lokomotiv, where he spent 19 years until 2005, interrupted by a short break in 1990 when he was an adviser to New Zealand Under-21s.

• His Lokomotiv side won the 2002 and 2004 titles in addition to four Russian Cups, and reached the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup semi-finals in 1998 and 1999. Having twice served as assistant coach, Semin took over as Russia boss in April 2005, but quit six months later.

• Following a spell as Dinamo coach and a stint as Lokomotiv technical director, Semin won a Ukrainian league title as Dynamo Kyiv boss in 2008/09, but left that summer to rejoin Lokomotiv; he was dismissed late the following year, returning to Dynamo within a month. Moved to Azerbaijan, joining Gabala in 2013 and, after short spells at Mordovia and Anji, took charge at Lokomotiv again in August 2016; claimed his fifth Russian Cup with the club in 2016/17 and a third league title the following year. Lokomotiv finished second in 2018/19, and also won the Russian Cup for the third time in five years.


Peter Bosz

Date of birth: 21 November 1963
Nationality: Dutch
Playing career: Vitesse, AGOVV Apeldoorn, RKC Waalwijk, Toulon, Feyenoord, JEF United Chiba (twice), Hansa Rostock, NAC Breda
Coaching career: AGOVV Apeldoorn, De Graafschap, Heracles Almelo (twice), Vitesse, Maccabi Tel-Aviv, Ajax, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen

• After three-year spells at Vitesse, Waalwijk and in France with Toulon, the midfielder's playing career took off following a move to Feyenoord in 1991; he won the Eredivisie in 1992/93 and three Dutch Cups, also picking up eight caps for the Netherlands. Bosz left Rotterdam after five years, proceeding to enjoy two Japanese stints with JEF United and also appearing in the Bundesliga for Hansa.

• Having retired in 1999 aged 36, Bosz rejoined home-town club Apeldoorn as coach, winning the national amateur championship in 2002. Head-coach opportunities then came with De Graafschap and Heracles – whom he led to the top flight in 2005 – before an appointment as Feyenoord technical director in 2006.

• Returning to coaching and Heracles in 2010, he kept the club in Eredivisie mid-table safety, but eventually stood down in 2013 and took charge of Vitesse for three years. Israel and Maccabi Tel-Aviv later came calling in January 2016, with the chance to work under sporting director Jordi Cruyff.

• After six months in Israel, however, Bosz was back in the Netherlands, signing for Ajax. Moulding a young squad and sticking closely to the attacking, high-intensity principles laid down by Johan Cruyff, he guided the Amsterdammers to second place in the table and the UEFA Europa League final.

• Appointed Dortmund coach in June 2017, he lasted only six months in the post; resurfaced at Leverkusen 12 months later, guiding Die Werkself to fourth place in the Bundesliga at the end of 2018/19.

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.

• 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.
