Match background Only this chapter

Liverpool return to the scene of last season's UEFA Champions League triumph as they visit Atlético Madrid in the first leg of their round of 16 tie.

• The contest brings together two sides with formidable recent knockout records in European football. Liverpool have reached the last two UEFA Champions League finals and are unbeaten in two-legged knockout ties under Jürgen Klopp; Atlético were UEFA Champions League runners-up in 2014 and 2016 and won the UEFA Europa League two seasons ago.

• The first leg will hold happy memories for Liverpool, who defeated Tottenham Hotspur in last season's final at Atlético's Estadio Metropolitano home.

• Both sides were made to wait until Matchday 6 before securing their last-16 places with 2-0 wins; Liverpool were victors at Salzburg to win Group E, while a home defeat of Lokomotiv Moskva meant Atlético finished second in Group D.

Watch: Atlético edge Liverpool in 2010 Europa League

Previous meetings
• The teams have not met since the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League semi-finals, a tie Atlético won on away goals after a 2-2 aggregate draw. Diego Forlán got the only goal of the first game in Spain, Alberto Aquilani levelling the tie a minute before half-time in Liverpool. With no further goals the match went to extra time, Yossi Benayoun putting Liverpool in front on aggregate in the 95th minute only for Forlán to supply the decisive moment seven minutes later.

• Atlético went on to beat another English club, Fulham, in the final in Hamburg, Forlán getting both goals in a 2-1 win.

• The sides met for the first time in the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League group stage with both games ending 1-1, Simão scoring in the 83rd minute at the Vicente Calderón after Robbie Keane had given Liverpool a 14th-minute lead. At Anfield, a Steven Gerrard penalty five minutes into added time earned the home side a point, Maxi Rodríguez having put Atlético in front in the 37th minute.

• Liverpool went on to top Group D with 14 points and Atlético finished as runners-up on 12. Los Rojiblancos were knocked out by Porto on away goals in the last 16, while the Reds lost to Chelsea in the quarter-finals.

Matchday 6 highlights: Atletico 2-0 Lokomotiv Moskva

Form guide
Atlético

• Atlético finished with ten points in this season's group stage, six behind Juventus. Having fought back from two goals down to draw with Juve on Matchday 1, Atlético then won 2-0 at Lokomotiv Moskva and 1-0 at home to Bayer Leverkusen only to lose 2-1 in Germany and 1-0 at Juve; a 2-0 defeat of Lokomotiv in Madrid on Matchday 6 nevertheless earned second place.

• Second in Spain in 2018/19, this is Atlético's tenth UEFA Champions League campaign and their eighth appearance in the knockout stages.

• Atleti also finished second in their section in 2018/19 and bowed out in the round of 16 after succumbing to a Juventus fightback (2-0 h, 0-3 a).

• The Spanish side have still won four of their six round of 16 ties, losing only the first – on away goals against Porto in 2008/09 – and the last. Their most recent win was a 4-2 aggregate defeat of Leverkusen in 2016/17 (4-2 a, 0-0 h).

• Last season's 2-0 first-leg win against Juventus extended Atlético's unbeaten run in home UEFA Champions League knockout matches to 13 (W8 D5), since a 3-2 loss to Ajax in the 1996/97 quarter-final second leg that sealed a 4-3 aggregate defeat.

Highlights: Atlético 1-0 Leverkusen

• A 2-1 loss to Chelsea on Matchday 2 in 2017/18 is Atlético's only defeat in the last 25 European games in their own stadium (W20 D4).

• Despite defeats on Matchdays 4 and 5 this season, Atlético have lost only five of their last 28 matches in continental competition (W17 D6).

• Atlético's last meetings with an English club came in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League semi-final, when they beat Arsenal 2-1 on aggregate (1-1 a, 1-0 h). They have been victorious in eight of their ten two-legged knockout contests against English teams, including the last four; only Derby County (1974/75 UEFA Cup) and Bolton Wanderers (2007/08 UEFA Cup) have eliminated them.

• At home Atlético have lost just once in 12 visits from English clubs (W7 D4) – that 2017 defeat against Chelsea in their first European game at the Estadio Metropolitano.

• The Rojiblancos have reached two UEFA Champions League and three UEFA Europa League finals in the last ten seasons.

Matchday 6 highlights: Salzburg 0-2 Liverpool

Liverpool
• Liverpool won Group E with 13 points, one ahead of Napoli who were 2-0 winners against the holders on Matchday 1. The Reds won their next three matches, at home against Salzburg (4-3) and away (4-1) and home (2-1) against Genk, before being held 1-1 by Napoli at Anfield on Matchday 5. A 2-0 success at Salzburg proved enough to secure progress in first place.

• Last season, Jürgen Klopp's team beat Bayern München 3-1 away in the second leg of their round of 16 tie, going through by the same aggregate score, before ousting Porto 6-1 over two legs in the quarter-finals (2-0 h, 4-1 a). The journey looked to be over when the Reds went down 3-0 at Barcelona in the semi-final first leg, but two goals apiece from Georginio Wijnaldum and Divock Origi sealed a rousing second-leg turnaround, before Mohamed Salah and Origi secured the club's sixth European Cup with a 2-0 final defeat of Tottenham in Madrid.

• Those results mean Liverpool have won their last 11 two-legged European ties, qualifying included. Their last defeat was on penalties in the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League round of 32 against Beşiktaş (1-0 home, 0-1 away). They have not lost a knockout phase tie in the UEFA Champions League since Chelsea beat them 7-5 on aggregate in the 2008/09 quarter-finals.

• The remarkable comeback win against Barcelona in 2018/19 made it four wins out of four against Spanish clubs in two-legged European Cup knockout ties for Liverpool, whose overall aggregate record in knockout ties with Liga sides is W9 L2.

Highlights: Genk 1-4 Liverpool

• That second-leg win against Barcelona was only Liverpool's second success in their last ten fixtures against Spanish clubs (D2 L6) – a sequence that also includes 3-1 losses under Klopp in the 2016 UEFA Europa League final to Sevilla and the 2018 UEFA Champions League final to Real Madrid.

• The 3-0 loss at Barcelona last season made it five games without a win away to Spanish sides (D1 L4), since Liverpool's 1-0 victory at Real Madrid in the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League round of 16, although their overall record in Spain is W7 D5 L6.

• Liverpool have won nine of their last 12 European fixtures (D2 L1) but have lost seven of their last 13 UEFA competition matches outside England.

• Premier League runners-up in 2018/19, this is Liverpool's third successive appearance in the round of 16 and eighth overall; their record is W6 L1. The sole defeat came against Benfica as holders in 2005/06.

• The Reds are unbeaten in eight UEFA Champions League round of 16 matches (W6 D2) and had kept seven consecutive clean sheets before conceding at Bayern last season. Their last defeat was a 1-0 loss at home to Barcelona in the 2006/07 second leg; they won that tie on away goals having triumphed 2-1 in Spain.

• Liverpool have already claimed European silverware this term, beating Chelsea 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in the UEFA Super Cup in Istanbul. They also won the FIFA Club World Cup in December, overcoming Flamengo 1-0 after extra time in the final.

Out: Sergio Camello, Mikel Carro (Castellón, loan), Iván Montoro, Alberto Salido (Arenas Getxo, loan), Óscar Castro

• Saúl Ñíguez made his 50th appearance in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final, on Matchday 6. Álvaro Morata will reach the same mark when he next features.

• Stefan Savić has played 49 games in UEFA club competition.

• Atlético's victory on Matchday 6 started a five-game winning streak in which they scored at least twice in every game, and included a 3-2 victory against champions Barcelona in the Spanish Super Cup semi-finals on 9 January.

• Three days later, Atlético's winning streak ended as they drew 0-0 with local rivals Real Madrid in the Super Cup final, losing the subsequent penalty shoot-out 4-1.

• Diego Simeone's side have won only one game since, a 1-0 home victory against Granada on 8 February ending a five-match sequence without a victory (D2 L3). On Friday they drew 2-2 at Valencia, a game in which they led twice.

• The draw at Valencia extended Atlético's winless run before UEFA Champions League matches this season (D6 L1); they have drawn their last six Liga games before a European fixture.

• Atlético suffered a 2-1 extra-time elimination at third division side Cultural Leonesa in the last 32 of the Copa del Rey on 23 January.

• Héctor Herrera (unspecified) and João Félix (muscle) have not played since the goalless draw at home to Leganés on 26 January.

UEFA Champions League squad changes
In: Takumi Minamino (Salzburg)
Out: Sepp van den Berg

• James Milner has played 49 times in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final.

• Jordan Henderson made his 50th appearance in UEFA club competition on Matchday 6.

• Liverpool were 1-0 winners at Norwich on Saturday thanks to Sadio Mané's late goal.

• That means the Reds have won 25 of their 26 Premier League matches this season, the exception a 1-1 draw at Manchester United on 20 October. That ended the Merseyside club's run of 17 successive Premier League victories, one short of Manchester City's top-flight record; they have won all 17 league matches since.

• The draw at United is therefore the only one of the Reds' last 35 league matches they have failed to win. They have scored two or more goals in 30 of those 35 games.

• Liverpool have scored in 35 successive Premier Legue games, fewer only than Arsenal (55 games, May 2001–November 2002) and Manchester United (36 games, December 2007–November 2008).

• The Reds have kept ten clean sheets in their last 11 league fixtures, the exception the 2-1 victory at Wolves on 23 January.

• Liverpool are unbeaten in 43 league fixtures (W38 D5), since a 2-1 loss at Manchester City on 3 January 2019. A 5-2 home win against Everton in the Merseyside derby on 4 December set a new record for the longest top-flight unbeaten run in the club's history.

• Liverpool have won their last 20 Premier League matches at Anfield; only once in English top-flight history has a team had a longer winning home streak, Liverpool themselves putting together 21 home victories between January and December 1972.

• The Reds are 25 points clear of second-placed Manchester City, the largest lead at the top in the history of the English top flight.

• The win at Norwich was Naby Keïta's 33rd Premier League match (W28 D5); no player has made more appearances in the competition without suffering a defeat.

• On 7 February Jürgen Klopp was named Premier League manager of the month for January, the third time in a row he has picked up the award and the fifth this season – a new competition record.

• Klopp signed a new Liverpool deal running to 2024 on 13 December, the same day James Milner also agreed a contract extension.

• On 17 December, a Liverpool team comprised of players from the club's Under-23 squad lost 5-0 at Aston Villa in the English League Cup quarter-finals.

• Liverpool's starting line-up for the replay against Shrewsbury in the last 32 of the FA Cup on 4 February had an average age of 19 years 102 days, the youngest in the club's history. An own goal gave them a 1-0 win; they will visit Chelsea in the next round on 3 March.

• Summer signing Harvey Elliott made his Liverpool debut in a 2-0 victory at MK Dons in the League Cup third round on 25 September; aged 16 years 174 days, he was the youngest player to start a game for Liverpool.

• Klopp's side claimed the FIFA Club World Cup for the first time in December, Roberto Firmino scoring an extra-time winner in a 1-0 final defeat of Brazilian side Flamengo on 21 December. Firmino had also scored the decisive goal as Mexican side Monterrey were beaten 2-1 in the semi-final three days earlier.

• Mané returned on Saturday having not played since limping off with a calf injury in the first half at Wolves on 23 January.

• Milner came on as a late substitute at Norwich, his first game since 5 January due to a thigh problem; Xherdan Shaqiri (out since 11 January, calf) has also been sidelined.

• Fabinho was out between 27 November and 19 January as a result of an injury to his left ankle sustained against Napoli on Matchday 5.

• Joël Matip made his first appearance since 20 October in the 2-2 FA Cup draw at Shrewsbury on 26 January after recovering from a knee injury.

• On 7 January, Mané was named CAF African Player of the Year, succeeding Mohamed Salah who won the prize in both 2017 and 2018.

• Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Mané were all voted into the UEFA.com Fans' Team of the Year for 2019.

• Van Dijk was named UEFA Men's Player of the Year for 2018/19 in Monaco on 29 August; the Dutchman also collected the Defender of the Season award, with Alisson taking the Goalkeeper's prize.

Head coach Only this chapter

Diego Simeone

Date of birth: 28 April 1970
Nationality: Argentinian
Playing career: Vélez Sarsfield, Pisa, Sevilla, Atlético Madrid (twice), Internazionale Milano, Lazio, Racing Club
Coaching career: Racing Club (twice), Estudiantes, River Plate, San Lorenzo, Catania, Atlético Madrid

• Launched career as a combative midfielder with Vélez Sarsfield and was a full Argentinian international at 18, making debut in a July 1988 friendly against Australia; went on to play in three FIFA World Cups and retired as Argentina's most-capped player (106 appearances, 11 goals). Moved to Italy in 1990 to join Pisa; two years later he left for Sevilla, where he played under Argentina's 1986 World Cup-winning coach Carlos Bilardo and – for one season – alongside Diego Maradona.

• Joined Atlético in 1994 and won the Spanish domestic double in his second season, his first major club honours to add to two Copa América titles (1991 and 1993) plus the 1992 FIFA Confederations Cup with Argentina.

• Enjoyed further success after returning to Italy, winning the UEFA Cup with Inter, plus a Serie A and Coppa Italia double in his debut campaign with Lazio (1999/2000). After four years in Rome, he returned to Madrid for a second spell with Atlético before ending his playing career in Argentina with Racing Club.

• Started coaching career with Racing Club and won Argentinian titles with Estudiantes (2006 Apertura) and River Plate (2008 Clausura); brief spells at San Lorenzo, Italian club Catania and Racing (again) preceded his appointment in December 2011 at Atlético.

• Led Atlético to victory in the 2012 UEFA Europa League final against Athletic Club and to a Copa del Rey final triumph over Real Madrid in 2013. A year later, Atlético held off Barcelona and Madrid to win their first league title since 1996, although they lost to Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final. Took Atlético to another UEFA Champions League final in 2016, which they again lost to Madrid, but collected more silverware two years later with another UEFA Europa League triumph and followed up by finally getting the better of Madrid in Europe with victory in the UEFA Super Cup.

Jürgen Klopp

Date of birth: 16 June 1967
Nationality: German
Playing career: Glatten, Ergenzingen, Pforzheim, Eintracht Frankfurt, Viktoria Sindlingen, Rot-Weiss Frankfurt, Mainz
Coaching career: Mainz, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool

• Having spent his early career in the lower leagues and failed to break into Eintracht's first team, Klopp turned professional with Mainz, starting off as a striker before becoming a no-nonsense defender. Never played in the top flight but made 325 second-division appearances from 1990 to 2001, setting a club record by scoring 52 goals.

• 'Kloppo' was appointed Mainz's caretaker coach on 28 February 2001, helping the club avoid relegation to the third tier. Duly won a permanent contract and built Mainz into one of the strongest clubs in the 2. Bundesliga; narrowly missed out on promotion in 2002 and 2003 before taking Mainz into the top flight for the first time in 2004 and kept them there until 2007, taking them into the 2005/06 UEFA Cup via the UEFA Fair Play ranking.

• After another promotion near-miss in 2007/08 Klopp left for Dortmund. Took them to sixth in his first season, led them into the UEFA Europa League the next year and then, with a squad full of exciting young talent, oversaw league title wins in 2010/11 and 2011/12, adding the German Cup in the latter campaign with a 5-2 final victory against Bayern München.

• Earned even greater admiration in 2012/13 as he steered Dortmund all the way to the UEFA Champions League final at Wembley, where they lost to Bayern. Dortmund reached more domestic cup finals in 2014 and 2015, losing to Bayern and Wolfsburg respectively, Klopp departing after the latter defeat.

• Succeeded Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager in October 2015 and reached the finals of the English League Cup and UEFA Europa League – helped by a quarter-final defeat of Dortmund – in his first season. Lost both, and there was more final disappointment in 2017/18, which ended in UEFA Champions League defeat by Real Madrid in Kyiv. Although Liverpool lost out to Manchester City in the 2018/19 Premier League, finishing second despite collecting 97 points and losing only once, solace came with victory against Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League final in Madrid. The Reds kicked off the following season by claiming the UEFA Super Cup on penalties at Chelsea's expense.

Competition facts Only this chapter

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• 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.

Knockout stage
• Real Madrid have qualified for the UEFA Champions League knockout phase a record 24 times, including 23 in succession. They have also played a competition-high 97 knockout phase matches – ahead of Bayern München (92) and Barcelona (91).

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 48 times, including six in 2018/19 – a competition record for a single season.

• Before last season, only twice – Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos in the 1995/96 semi-finals and Internazionale's victory against Bayern in the 2010/11 round of 16 – had a side progressed after a home first-leg loss. However, Ajax again (against Real Madrid) and Manchester United (against Paris Saint-Germain) both achieved the feat in the 2018/19 round of 16 before Tottenham (against Ajax) did likewise in the semi-finals.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by Barcelona against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home; Roma equalled that margin in the 2017/18 quarter-finals, turning round a 4-1 first-leg loss at Barcelona with a 3-0 home success, while in the 2018/19 semi-finals Liverpool lost 3-0 in the first leg at Barcelona but went through after a 4-0 home victory.

• Thirty-three ties have been decided on away goals, including 13 where the triumphant team lost the first leg. Bayern and Monaco have benefited from the away goals rule five times – more than any other club – whereas Internazionale have been eliminated by that method a record four times.

• In all, 29 ties have required extra time. Thirteen have been settled by extra time alone: six round of 16 encounters including Porto-Roma in 2018/19, five quarter-finals, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool, and the 2013/14 final between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Lyon on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties. Bayern, Chelsea and Atlético Madrid have all appeared in three shoot-outs, sharing the competition record, with Bayern, Atlético and Liverpool having won the most (two apiece).

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Atlético Madrid and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid's defeat of Manchester City in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool (versus Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at Schalke in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting CP in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16.

• Bayern eventually beat Sporting by a record aggregate margin of 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie until it was equalled by Liverpool's 7-6 aggregate win against Roma in the 2017/18 semi-final.

• Bayern and Manchester City jointly hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match. Bayern beat both Basel (2011/12) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg, while City beat Schalke by the same scoreline at the same stage of the 2018/19 competition.

• A record five clubs from England participated in the 2017/18 knockout phase. Including 2019/20, England has also provided four clubs on eight other occasions – as has Spain five times and Germany twice. England is the only nation to have provided four quarter-finalists in a season, 2018/19 being the third occasion after 2007/08 and 2008/09.

• There are four clubs from two nations in the round of 16 for only the third time in 2019/20. England and Spain both had four apiece in 2008/09, and there were four each from England and Germany in 2013/14.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to have lifted the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win it three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) and Zinédine Zidane (2016, 2017, 2018) have replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburg 1983), José Mourinho (Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

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. Thirteen more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, including two Bayern players, Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski, in this season's group fixtures at Tottenham Hotspur and Crvena zvezda respectively.

• 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. Messi got ten goals in 2016/17, as did Lewandowski this season; Zlatan Ibrahimović (2013/14), Ruud van Nistelrooy (2004/05), Filippo Inzaghi, Hernán Crespo (both 2002/03), Lewandowski (2018/19) and Erling Braut Haaland (2019/20) all managed eight.

• Messi's hat-trick against PSV Eindhoven on Matchday 1 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 6 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.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years and 59 days, in Roma's 1-1 draw at CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• 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.

• Ansu Fati's winner for Barcelona at Inter on Matchday 6 in 2019/20 made him the youngest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history, at the age of 17 years 40 days. He eclipsed the previous record of Olympiacos's Peter Ofori-Quaye (17 years 195 days) that had lasted since 1 October 1997.
