Match background Only this chapter

Having suffered a first defeat against Lyon, Juventus have work to do on home soil for the second season in succession to turn round their UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie.

• Lucas Tousart's first-half goal at the OL Stadium on 26 February earned Lyon their first UEFA Champions League knockout victory in eight years, and left Juve once again needing a Turin comeback at this stage.

• The French club have lost their three most recent last-16 ties – and six of their last seven contests at this stage – and have not reached the quarter-finals since 2009/10. Juve have not been eliminated in the last 16 since 2015/16, their only reverse in their last six appearances at this juncture, and produced a fine second-leg comeback to progress 12 months ago.

Previous meetings
• This is the sides' sixth match, all in the last six years. Juve won three of the first four fixtures, with the first leg of this tie OL's sole success against the Bianconeri.

• The teams first met in the 2013/14 UEFA Europa League quarter-finals, Leonardo Bonucci scoring the only goal of the first leg at Lyon's former home, the Stade de Gerland, five minutes from time. Andrea Pirlo increased Juve's aggregate advantage four minutes into the Turin return and, although Jimmy Briand's 18th-minute strike gave OL hope, a Samuel Umtiti own goal midway through the second half sealed Juventus's place in the semi-finals.

• In the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League group stage Juventus again secured a narrow victory in France, Juan Cuadrado getting the only goal with 14 minutes left at the OL Stadium on Matchday 3. The Bianconeri looked set for another narrow victory at the Juventus Stadium thanks to Gonzalo Higuaín's 13th-minute penalty, but Corentin Tolisso earned Lyon a point with five minutes left.

• Juve went on to finish first in Group H, third-placed Lyon moving into the UEFA Europa League, where they reached the semi-finals.

Form guide

• The Bianconeri won five of their six Group D games to finish six points clear at the top. They dropped points only in their first fixture, Maurizio Sarri's first European game as Juventus coach, being pegged back by two late Atlético Madrid goals in a 2-2 draw in Spain, but went on to beat Bayer Leverkusen 3-0 in Italy and Lokomotiv Moskva 2-1 home and away. A 1-0 home win against Atlético and a 2-0 success at Leverkusen completed the section.

• The loss at Lyon made it four defeats in Juve's last 12 UEFA Champions League matches (W6 D2).

• Gianluigi Buffon's appearance in Leverkusen made him the second oldest player to feature in the UEFA Champions League, aged 41 years 317 days. The only older participant is another Italian goalkeeper, Marco Ballotta, who played for Lazio against Real Madrid in December 2007 aged 43 years 252 days.

• This is Juventus's 11th UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie (W7 L3); they have won the last three, producing a memorable comeback against Atlético 12 months ago (0-2 a, 3-0 h) thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's second-leg hat-trick.

• In 2018/19, under Massimiliano Allegri, Juve finished first in their group and, after turning round their last-16 tie against Atlético, drew 1-1 at Ajax in the first leg of their quarter-final only to bow out following a 2-1 home defeat. That was the Bianconeri's second defeat in Turin in last season's competition having lost by the same scoreline against Manchester United on Matchday 4 – the only time Juventus have ever lost more than one home game in a European campaign.

• Last season's win against Atlético is Juve's only success in their last four home UEFA Champions League knockout matches (D1 L2).

• Before losing to Real Madrid in the 2017/18 quarter-final first leg (0-3), Juve were unbeaten in 27 home matches in UEFA competition (W16 D11), dating back to a 2-0 reverse against Bayern München in April 2013. They have still lost only four of their 41 European matches at the Juventus Stadium (W25 D12), although three of those defeats have come in their last nine matches.

• This is Juve's first two-legged tie against a French club since they defeated Monaco in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League semi-finals (2-0 a, 2-1 h) to make it 12 aggregate wins out of 12 against Ligue 1 opponents.

• The first leg ended Juve's eight-match unbeaten run (W6 D2) against French sides, home and away, stretching back to a 2-0 loss at Bordeaux in the 2009/10 group stage.

• The Turin team have never lost at home to French visitors, winning 11 of their 14 matches.

• Champions of Italy for a record eighth season in a row in 2018/19, this is Juve's 20th UEFA Champions League campaign.

• Winners in 1985 and 1996, Juventus have played in nine European Cup finals – losing a record seven, including all of their last five.

• Juve have won 15 of the 33 UEFA ties in which they lost the away first leg, most recently against Atlético in last season's round of 16 (0-2 a, 3-0 h). On the 15 occasions the Bianconeri have lost the away game 1-0, they have won eight ties on aggregate, although they lost the most recent, against Chelsea in the 2008/09 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (2-2 h) – one of seven defeats in the last ten ties when they were beaten 1-0 away in the first leg.

Juventus's record in six UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W3 L3:
3-0 v Ajax, 1977/78 European Champion Clubs' Cup quarter-final
1-4 v Widzew Łódź, 1980/81 UEFA Cup second round
4-2 v Argentinos Juniors, 1985 European/South American Cup final
1-3 v Real Madrid, 1986/87 European Champion Clubs' Cup second round
4-2 v Ajax, 1995/96 UEFA Champions League final
2-3 v AC Milan, 2002/03 UEFA Champions League final

• Lyon squeezed into the last 16 as Group G runners-up having picked up eight points from their six games, one more than both Benfica and Zenit. Away from home, OL won 2-0 at eventual section winners Leipzig before losing at Benfica (1-2) and Zenit (0-2).

• Lyon have nevertheless lost only four of their last 19 European matches (W7 D8). Away from home, it is four defeats in 12 matches (W5 D3).

• When Lyon's Rayan Cherki came on as a substitute at Zenit on Matchday 5, he became, at 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 campaign – four more than any other French club – and fourth in five seasons.

• This is Lyon's 11th round of 16 appearance, where their aggregate record is W4 L6. Having won their first four ties, they have lost six of the last seven, the most recent win against Real Madrid in 2009/10 (1-0 h, 1-1 a).

• Les Gones were eliminated by Barcelona in last season's round of 16 (0-0 h, 1-5 a).

• Lyon have lost five of their last six away games in the round of 16, where their away record overall is W3 D2 L5. Their last away win at this stage, 1-0 at PSV Eindhoven in 2005/06, was their third in a row.

• The first leg was Lyon's first win in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds since a 1-0 first-leg victory against APOEL in February 2012; Les Gones went on to lose that last-16 tie on penalties.

• The French club's record in two-legged knockout ties against Italian clubs is W2 L5. They had suffered five straight eliminations before winning the most recent contest, against Roma in the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League round of 16 (4-2 h, 1-2 a).

• Lyon's last games against a Serie A side before this tie came against Atalanta in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League group stage (1-1 h, 0-1 a). That 2017 home win against Roma and the first-leg defeat of Juve are their only successes in their last ten matches with Italian sides, home and away (D2 L6).

• OL are without a win in their last five games in Italy (D1 L4).

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

• Lyon's record in three UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L2:
2-4 v PSV Eindhoven, 2004/05 UEFA Champions League quarter-final
3-4 v APOEL, 2011/12 UEFA Champions League round of 16
7-6 v Beşiktaş, 2016/17 UEFA Europa League quarter-final

• Lyon have won 18 of the 21 UEFA competition ties in which they have led after the first leg at home, most recently against Villarreal in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League round of 32 (3-1 h, 1-0 a). They have won six of the seven ties in which the scoreline was 1-0, their only defeat coming on penalties against APOEL at this stage of the 2011/12 UEFA Champions League (0-1 a).

Head coach Only this chapter

Maurizio Sarri

Date of birth: 10 January 1959
Nationality: Italian
Coaching career: Sangiovannese, Pescara, Arezzo, Avellino, Verona, Perugia, Grosseto, Alessandria, Sorrento, Empoli, Napoli, Chelsea, Juventus

• Sarri was born in Naples, when his father was working in a local factory. The family moved back to Tuscany when he was three, but young Maurizio was always a Napoli fan. After a short career as an amateur footballer, he started coaching in the lower divisions in Tuscany while studying economics and working in a bank. In 2000/01 he accepted a job at Sansovino in Serie Eccellenza, the fifth tier, promising he would quit coaching for good if he did not win the league; they duly triumphed.

• After a Serie C1 promotion with Sangiovannese and 11th place in Serie B with Pescara, in 2006/07 Sarri replaced the sacked Antonio Conte at the helm of Arezzo. His side were relegated but Sarri did oversee a 2-2 away draw against Juventus and a home victory against AC Milan in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals, although the Rossoneri won on aggregate.

• In 2012 he took the Empoli job and, despite picking up only four points in the first nine games, his side reached the Serie B play-off final, losing to Livorno. The following season he guided Empoli to promotion and Sarri made his Serie A debut in 2014/15, leading the Azzurri to a 15th-place finish with his side earning plaudits for their organised and entertaining football.

• A 4-2 victory against Napoli helped the Partenopei decide to appoint him to replace Rafael Benítez. Sarri was an immediate success, leading Napoli to second place in 2015/16, his team scoring five goals more than eventual champions Juventus. Sarri's side also reached the UEFA Europa League round of 32, scoring a record 22 goals in the group stage.

• Napoli finished third in Serie A in 2016/17 and second 12 months later, after which Sarri departed for Chelsea. His sole season in England brought his first major trophy in the form of the UEFA Europa League, Chelsea also reaching the League Cup final and ending the Premier League campaign third before Sarri decided to return home, succeeding Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus.


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.

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 49 times, including six in 2018/19 – a competition record for a single season – and Paris Saint-Germain in this season's round of 16..

• 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 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, 30 ties have required extra time. Fourteen have been settled by extra time alone: six round of 16 encounters including Atlético-Liverpool in 2019/20, 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. Fourteen 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, plus Atalanta's Josip Iličić at Valencia in the round of 16 second leg.

• 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.
