Match background Only this chapter

An intriguing Matchday 6 is in store in Group C as Shakhtar Donetsk meet Atalanta in Ukraine with both hoping to claim second place in the section – although Dinamo Zagreb could also progress to the last 16.

• Manchester City have won the group with 11 points, with Shakhtar second on six and Atalanta fourth on four. A home win in Kharkiv therefore means Shakhtar will go through if they beat Atalanta, or if they draw and Dinamo fail to win at home to City. Atalanta will go through if they beat Shakhtar and Dinamo do not beat City; Dinamo will go through if they win and Shakhtar do not beat Atalanta.

• On Matchday 2, in the sides' first meeting and Atalanta's first match against Ukrainian opposition, the Italian club looked set to pick up their first UEFA Champions League point even after Duván Zapata's first-half opener was cancelled out by Júnior Moraes before the break, only for Shakhtar substitute Manor Solomon to give the visitors the points five minutes into added time.

Highlights: Atalanta 1-2 Shakhtar Donetsk

Form guide
Shakhtar
• Shakhtar have drawn their last three games, home (2-2) and away (3-3) against Dinamo Zagreb and, last time out, 1-1 at Manchester City. They had opened with a 3-0 loss at home against the English club before the comeback win at Atalanta.

• Shakhtar have won only two of their last 12 UEFA Champions League matches (D6 L4).

• The Donetsk club have been defeated in only three of their last 20 home matches in Europe (W11 D6), although they have not won any of the last six. They have not kept a clean sheet in any of the last 11.

• 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 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).

Highlights: Manchester City 1-1 Shakhtar Donetsk

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

• The Pitmen's record at home to Italian clubs is W5 L6. They have won the last two matches 2-1, most recently against Roma in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg, a tie they lost on away goals after a 1-0 away defeat.

• 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.

Highlights: Atalanta 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb

Atalanta
• Atalanta have suffered their two heaviest European defeats this season, losing 4-0 away to Dinamo on Matchday 1 before a 5-1 loss at Manchester City in their second away game. All four of their points have come in their home fixtures, played at San Siro in Milan; after being denied a point by those two late Shakhtar goals on Matchday 2, they held City to a 1-1 draw to get off the mark in the UEFA Champions League, then picked up their first win in the competition last time out with a 2-0 defeat of Dinamo.

• The win against Dinamo ended Atalanta's six-match winless run in Europe (D3 L3).

• Before Matchday 1, the Italian club were unbeaten in seven matches in continental competition; they have still lost only four of their last 19 European games (W8 D7).

• This is Atalanta's 41st European match, and their seventh campaign in continental competition. They reached the European Cup Winners' Cup semi-finals in 1987/88 and the UEFA Cup quarter-finals three years later.

Highlights: Atalanta 1-1 Manchester City

• Third in Serie A in 2018/19, their highest ever finish, and Coppa Italia runners-up, this is Atalanta's third successive European campaign. They came through the UEFA Europa League group stage in 2017/18, losing to Borussia Dortmund in the round of 32 (2-3 a, 1-1 h), and were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Copenhagen in the play-offs of the same competition in 2018/19 after the tie had finished goalless; Atalanta had earlier eliminated Sarajevo (10-2 aggregate) and Hapoel Haifa (6-1).

• Atalanta lost five of their first six away European matches (D1) but have suffered only four defeats in the 13 since (W4 D5) and only three in the last nine (W3 D3).

• Atalanta are the only team to be making their group stage debut in 2019/20 – they are the tenth Italian club to feature and the 141st overall.

Highlights: Shakhtar Donetsk 2-2 Dinamo Zagreb

Links and trivia
• Atalanta's Ukrainian international midfielder Ruslan Malinovskyi started his career with Shakhtar, coming through the youth ranks before breaking into the first team in 2011. He was a Shakhtar player until 2017 but never played for the first team, having loan spells at a number of other clubs including Sevastopol and Zorya Luhansk, before leaving for Genk in 2015, initially on loan; he made the move to the Belgian club permanent in May 2017.

• Malinovskyi played 44 games and scored seven goals in the Ukrainian Premier League for Zorya Luhansk, where he was a team-mate of Shakhtar's Andrii Totovytskyi.

• Atalanta captain Alejandro Gómez played in Ukraine with Metalist in 2013/14 alongside Marlos, now at Shakhtar. His two games against Shakthar ended in a 1-1 draw and a 4-2 defeat.

Highlights: Manchester City 5-1 Atalanta

• Josip Iličić was part of the Slovenia side that lost 3-1 on aggregate to Ukraine in the UEFA EURO 2016 play-offs; Andriy Pyatov, Taras Stepanenko and Yevhen Konoplyanka featured for the Zhovto-Syni.

• Atalanta's Guilherme Arana and Shakhtar's Dodô played together for Brazil U20s in 2016/17.

• International team-mates:
Andriy Pyatov, Serhiy Kryvtsov, Taras Stepanenko, Viktor Kovalenko, Marlos, Bohdan Butko, Mykola Matviyenko, Yevhen Konoplyanka, Serhiy Bolbat, Júnior Moraes & Ruslan Malinovskyi (Ukraine)

Head coach Only this chapter

Gian Piero Gasperini

Date of birth: 26 January 1958
Nationality: Italian
Playing career: Juventus, Reggiana, Palermo, Cavese, Pistoiese, Pescara, Salernitana, Vis Pesaro
Coaching career: Juventus (youth), Crotone, Genoa, Internazionale, Palermo (twice), Genoa, Atalanta

• Gasperini came up through Juventus youth ranks alongside Italy legend Paolo Rossi but never played in Serie A for the Bianconeri, only appearing in the Coppa Italia. Loaned to Reggiana in 1977/78, he joined Palermo for the following campaign.

• After spells at Cavese and Pistoiese, the midfielder moved to Pescara in 1985 and captained the team to promotion to Serie A two years later; scored on his top-flight debut in September 1987 and stayed at the club until 1990, ending his career in the lower divisions with Salernitana and Vis Pesaro.

• After seven successful years as coach in Juventus's youth system, Gasperini took over at Crotone in 2003, leading the southern side into Serie B during his first season before joining Genoa in 2006; again gained promotion in his debut campaign, taking his new club up to the highest division and winning the Panchina d'Argento (Silver Bench) as Serie B's coach of the season.

• Famous for his attacking football and tactical knowledge, in 2008/09 Gasperini led Genoa to fifth place in Serie A, losing out on a place in the UEFA Champions League to Fiorentina only on the head-to-head rule. The first Genoa coach to win three Serie A derbies against city rivals Sampdoria, he was sacked after only ten games of the 2010/11 season. 

• Had three months as Inter coach in 2011 before two short spells at Palermo and three years back in charge at Genoa.

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.
