Match background Only this chapter

Valencia were surprise winners at Chelsea on Matchday 1 and are in a three-way tie with their English opponents – and Ajax – ahead of the reverse fixture at Mestalla, where the English side have never lost.

• Valencia spoiled Frank Lampard's European debut as Chelsea manager with a first victory against the Blues at the seventh attempt on Matchday 1. Rodrigo scored what proved to be the only goal of the game at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea's Ross Barkley missing a late chance to equalise from the penalty spot.

• With Valencia, Chelsea and Ajax all on seven points in Group H, either Valencia or Chelsea will be through if they win due to their favourable head-to-head record in a potential three-way tie also involving the Dutch club.

Highlights: Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

Previous meetings
• All of the sides' encounters before this season came in the space of four and a half years, four alone taking place in 2007. The English club were 3-2 aggregate winners against Valencia in the 2006/07 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, winning 2-1 at Mestalla after a 1-1 draw in west London; Chelsea went on to lose to Liverpool on penalties in the last four.

• Chelsea also won 2-1 at Valencia in the following season's group stage before a goalless draw in London. They went on to finish first in the section with Valencia fourth, and progressed all the way to that season's final, losing to Manchester United – also in a shoot-out – in Moscow.

• Chelsea's run to glory in the 2011/12 UEFA Champions League featured two games against Valencia in the group stage, Lampard scoring in a 1-1 draw at Mestalla on Matchday 2 before the English club won 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Matchday 6, their sole home success against Valencia.

Highlights: Valencia 4-1 LOSC

Form guide
• Valencia went down 3-0 at home to Ajax on Matchday 2, a second successive European defeat at Mestalla, and conceded a late equaliser to draw 1-1 at LOSC Lille in their third fixture before overturning a half-time deficit to beat the French side 4-1 last time out.

• 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 6 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 Chelsea's local rivals Arsenal, losing 3-1 in London and 4-2 at home.

Highlights: Valencia 0-3 Ajax

• Valencia had won five successive home European matches before losing to Arsenal last season. They have won 13 of their last 18 continental fixtures at Mestalla, losing the other five. They last drew a European home game in the 2013/14 UEFA Europa League round of 32, 0-0 against Dynamo Kyiv.

• Valencia have won nine of their 19 matches against clubs representing England, losing five, although all of those defeats have come in the last eight such fixtures.

• Lampard's side responded to their opening loss against Valencia with a 2-1 victory at LOSC Lille before a 1-0 win at Ajax and a remarkable 4-4 draw at home to the Dutch club last time out in which Chelsea recovered from being 4-1 down.

Highlights: Chelsea 4-4 Ajax

• The Matchday 3 win at Ajax extended Chelsea's unbeaten run in European away matches to nine (W7 D2).

• Third in last season's Premier League, Chelsea also qualified for the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League group stage as the winners of the UEFA Europa League, and are taking part for the 16th time; only once, as holders in 2012/13, have they failed to reach the knockout stages.

• The Blues were UEFA Europa League winners under Maurizio Sarri in 2018/19, beating Arsenal 4-1 in the competition's first all-English final since Tottenham overcame Wolves in the 1972 UEFA Cup. Eden Hazard scored twice at the Baku Olympic Stadium, Olivier Giroud and Pedro Rodríguez also finding the net as Chelsea claimed their second UEFA Europa League title having also triumphed in 2013, their only other appearance in the competition.

• The London club have scored three goals or more in six of their last 12 European matches. Their tally of 36 goals in last season's UEFA Europa League was one short of the competition record set by Porto in 2010/11.

Highlights: Ajax 0-1 Chelsea

• Chelsea were unbeaten in European competition last season, claiming the UEFA Europa League with a record of W12 D3 F36 A10. Before losing to Valencia on Matchday 1, their last continental defeat had come at Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg in March 2018 (0-3), although they did lose on penalties against Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup this August following a 2-2 draw after 120 minutes in Istanbul.

• That defeat at Barcelona's was Chelsea's most recent trip to Spain, and ended a ten-match unbeaten run away to Liga clubs (W3 D7).

• A 2-1 victory at Atlético Madrid on Matchday 2 in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League is Chelsea's only success in their last nine fixtures against Liga clubs (D4 L4).

Head coach Only this chapter

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.


Frank Lampard

Date of birth: 20 June 1978
Playing career:
West Ham, Swansea (loan), Chelsea, Manchester City, New York City
Coaching career: Derby, Chelsea

• The son of former West Ham left-back Frank Lampard Sr, he started his career with the Hammers as an apprentice and had a short spell on loan at Swansea before making his debut for the east London outfit. Moved across London to join Chelsea in 2001.

• A key figure in Chelsea's back-to-back title wins in 2004/05 and 2005/06, he equalised in the 2008 UEFA Champions League final defeat against Manchester United and scored the winner in the 2009 FA Cup decider versus Everton.

• Played a key role in Chelsea's remarkable 2012 UEFA Champions League success by converting penalties in successive rounds against Napoli and Benfica and another in the final shoot-out win against Bayern München. Surpassed Bobby Tambling's club record of 202 goals with a second-half double against Aston Villa in May 2013 and captained Chelsea to UEFA Europa League glory at the expense of Benfica in Amsterdam four days later.

• First capped by England in 1999, he scored three times at UEFA EURO 2004, his first major tournament; also featured at the FIFA World Cup in 2006 and 2010, plus UEFA EURO 2012, before retiring from international football after the 2014 World Cup having scored 29 goals in 106 England appearances, including a record nine penalties.

• Ended a 13-year playing association with Chelsea in 2014, going on to spend a year with both Manchester City and New York City before announcing his retirement in February 2017. Appointed Derby manager in May 2018, he took the club to the Championship play-off final in his sole season in charge; returned to Stamford Bridge as manager in July 2019 to succeed Maurizio Sarri, his Chelsea side losing on penalties to Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup in Lampard's second match in charge.

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
