Match background Only this chapter

Lyon take on Leipzig looking to join their visitors in the UEFA Champions League round of 16, while the German club have their sights set on first place in Group G.

• Leipzig lost 2-0 at home to Lyon on Matchday 2 – Memphis Depay and Martin Terrier with the goals in what was the teams' first meeting – but that is their sole defeat in the group, with progress to the knockout rounds for the first time assured on Matchday 5. Julian Nagelsmann's side will secure first place with a draw or win in France.

• Lyon have seven points, level with Zenit and three ahead of Benfica. OL will go through if they beat Leipzig, in which case they would also clinch first place, or if they draw and Zenit lose at Benfica; a defeat would eliminate the French side from the competition – and from Europe altogether if Benfica defeat Zenit.

Highlights: Leipzig 0-2 Lyon

Form guide
• Held 1-1 at home by Zenit on Matchday 1, Lyon won their second home game 3-1 against Benfica on Matchday 4. After wining at Leipzig, they lost their next two away matches, 2-1 at Benfica and, most recently, 2-0 at Zenit on Matchday 5.

• Despite those defeats at Benfica and Zenit, Lyon have lost only four of their last 17 European matches (W6 D7).

• When Lyon's Rayan Cherki came on as a substitute at Zenit, he became, at the age of 16 years 102 days, the second youngest player to appear in the UEFA Champions League – after Celestine Babayaro, who was aged 16 years 87 days when he played for Anderlecht against Olympiacos in November 1994.

• Third in Ligue 1 last season, this is Lyon's 16th UEFA Champions League group campaign – four more than any other French club – and fourth in five seasons.

Highlights: Zenit 2-0 Lyon

• Les Gones won their first game in last season's UEFA Champions League, 2-1 at Manchester City, before drawing the next five and qualifying for the round of 16 with a 1-1 draw at Shakhtar Donetsk on Matchday 6. A 5-1 second-leg loss at Barcelona in the round of 16 ended their interest in last season's competition.

• All three of Lyon's home group games last season finished 2-2, against Shakhtar, Hoffenheim and Manchester City. Matchday 1 made it five successive home European draws before the defeat of Benfica.

• A 3-2 defeat by CSKA Moskva in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League round of 16 is Lyon's only home reverse in 16 European contests (W8 D7), since a 1-0 UEFA Champions League group loss to Juventus in October 2016.

• The French club have won only one of their last four home games against German clubs but have won seven of the 13 such contests overall (D2 L4).

• Lyon were UEFA Champions League semi-finalists in 2010.

Highlights: Leipzig 2-2 Benfica

• Leipzig have won both away games in this season's group stage, triumphing 2-1 at Benfica on Matchday 1 and 2-0 at Zenit on Matchday 4. At home, they bounced back from losing to Lyon by defeating Zenit 2-1 and last time out drew 2-2 with Benfica, Emil Forsberg scoring twice from the 90th minute onwards to rescue an unlikely point that secured progress.

• Leipzig have won five of their 11 UEFA Champions League fixtures (D2 L4).

• Third in the Bundesliga last season and German Cup finalists, this is Leipzig's third European campaign, and only their 30th match. In 2017/18 they became the first team to make their European debut in the UEFA Champions League group stage, when they picked up seven points to finish third in a section including Beşiktaş, Porto and Monaco. They went on to reach the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals before losing to Marseille.

Highlights: Zenit 0-2 Leipzig

• Two years ago Leipzig lost at Beşiktaş (0-2) and Porto (1-3), but did record a 4-1 success at Monaco to claim their first European away victory.

• Leipzig's only other trip to France after that victory at Monaco was a 5-2 defeat against Marseille in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League quarter-final second leg, completing a 5-3 aggregate loss.

• Before this season's successes, Leipzig had won only three of their 12 away European matches (D4 L5).

• In 2018/19 the German club came through three qualifying rounds to reach the UEFA Europa League group stage, but finished behind Salzburg and Celtic to drop out of the competition, collecting seven points from their six games.

Highlights: Lyon 3-1 Benfica

Head coach Only this chapter

Rudi Garcia

Date of birth: 20 February 1964
Playing career: LOSC Lille, Caen, Martigues
Coaching career: Corbeil-Essonnes (player-coach), St-Étienne, Dijon, Le Mans, LOSC Lille, Roma, Marseille, Lyon

• The son of former LOSC player José Garcia, Rudi grew up in the Paris suburbs but started his playing career as an attacking midfielder at his father's old club. Spent six years with Les Dogues, going on to Caen (1988-91) and Martigues (1991-92) before injury prompted a move into coaching.

• Having completed a sports science degree, started out as a player-coach at amateur side Corbeil-Essonnes, whom he had represented as a youngster; did well enough to be offered a job as assistant coach at St-Étienne in 1998. After a brief spell as head coach in tandem with Jean-Guy Wallemme, Garcia re-emerged at the helm of Dijon in 2002, winning promotion to Ligue 2 in 2003/04 and taking the club to the French Cup semi-finals. Returned to Ligue 1 in 2007 with Le Mans, who he led to ninth place in his only season.

• Brought to LOSC as Claude Puel's successor in 2008, he briefly left after a fifth-placed finish in his first season only to reconsider. He led his side to victory in the Coupe de France in May 2011, their first win in the competition since 1955, before completing a domestic double a week later, LOSC's first league title in 57 years.

• Appointed at Roma in June 2013 and oversaw wins in his first ten league matches, the best ever start to Serie A. Eventually finished second, earning a UEFA Champions League place for the first time since 2010, and Roma again finished second in 2015, before Garcia was dismissed the following January.

• Took over at Marseille in October 2016, taking the club to the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League final in Lyon, but Atlético Madrid proved too strong. Garcia left OM in May 2019 and, five months later, was appointed Lyon coach after Sylvinho's brief reign.


Julian Nagelsmann

Date of birth: 23 July 1987
Nationality: German
Playing career: 1860 München II, Augsburg II
Coaching career: Augsburg (youth), 1860 München (youth), Hoffenheim (youth), Hoffenheim, RB Leipzig

• Nagelsmann's playing career began at Issing before a move to Augsburg's youth academy. From 2002 he represented 1860 München for five seasons, starting off in the youth side before being promoted to the second team.

• Injury prevented him from making a single appearance in 2006/07, so he returned to Augsburg, where he picked up a serious knee injury and was forced to retire in 2007 aged just 20 having never played a competitive first-team game.

• Nagelsmann, who has a degree in sports and applied coaching, swiftly took up a post in Augsburg's youth coaching set-up under Thomas Tuchel before two years in charge of 1860's Under-17 side.

• His association with Hoffenheim began in 2010 and he led the club's Under-19s to the league title in 2013/14, his first season. Succeeded Huub Stevens as first-team coach in February 2016, aged just 28 – the youngest coach in Bundesliga history – and guided the club away from the Bundesliga relegation zone by the end of that campaign.

• Took Hoffenheim to a fourth-placed finish in 2016/17 although their subsequent UEFA Champions League adventure lasted only one tie, Liverpool eliminating them in the play-offs. Another strong Bundesliga season was rewarded with third place and on 21 June 2018 it was announced that Nagelsmann would leave Hoffenheim at the end of 2018/19 to take over as coach of RB Leipzig; before departing he oversaw Hoffenheim's debut UEFA Champions League group campaign and a ninth-placed Bundesliga finish.
