Match background Only this chapter

With heavyweight contests lying ahead, Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moskva will both be keen to kick off Group A with a win as they meet in Austria on Matchday 1.

• This is the first meeting between the clubs and, with holders Bayern München and Atlético de Madrid also in the section, could go a long way towards determining both sides' fate in the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League.

• Lokomotiv have not reached the last 16 since 2003/04, while both of Salzburg's previous appearances in the competition ended in the group stage – including last season, when Loko also bowed out after Matchday 6.

Form guide
• Salzburg have secured consecutive group stage campaigns having come through the UEFA Champions League qualifying phase for the first time since 1994.

• In 2019/20 Salzburg qualified automatically for the group stage, where they finished third in their section behind Liverpool and Napoli; the Austrian club picked up seven points from their six matches to finish six ahead of Genk.

• Jesse Marsch's side therefore moved into the UEFA Europa League, losing 6-3 on aggregate to Eintracht Frankfurt in the round of 32 (1-4 a, 2-2 h).

• Salzburg ended a run of 13 successive eliminations in UEFA Champions League qualifying since their first group stage appearance in 1994/95 by beating Maccabi Tel-Aviv in this season's play-offs (2-1 a, 3-1 h), Dominik Szoboszlai converting a penalty in each game.

• The Austrian club won a seventh successive Bundesliga title in 2019/20 – their 14th overall – adding the Austrian Cup to complete a domestic double for the seventh time, all in the last nine seasons.

• Salzburg are matching Sturm Graz's Austrian record of three group stage appearances this season.

• The 6-2 defeat of Genk on Matchday 1 in 2019/20 was Salzburg's sixth successive home European win, and made it 19 European games without defeat in their own stadium (W15 D4). They have won one of the subsequent four (D1 L2).

• This is only Salzburg's third match against a Russian club, and they are still seeking their first victory having drawn away (1-1) and lost at home (0-1) against Krasnodar in the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League group stage.

• Second behind Zenit in the Russian Premier League for the second season running in 2019/20, Lokomotiv are in the group stage for the sixth time overall and the third in successive seasons. Their 2018/19 appearance was their first since 2003/04, which was also their third consecutive group campaign.

• In 2019/20 Loko opened with a 2-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen – their first away victory in the UEFA Champions League since a 2-1 win at Galatasaray in the 2002/03 first group stage; their record between those two victories, qualifying included, was D4 L9 – but lost their next five matches, conceding two goals in each of them. That left them bottom behind Juventus, Atlético and Leverkusen.

• Lokomotiv have finished bottom of their section in each of the last two seasons.

• The Moscow club have lost 11 of their last 13 UEFA Champions League group matches, winning the other two.

• Lokomotiv have also won only two of their last 14 European games, losing 12.

• Last season's win at Leverkusen on Matchday 1 is the only time Loko have avoided defeat in their last seven away European matches.

• Lokomotiv have played eight previous games against Austrian teams, winning four of them including the last two – away (2-1) and home (3-1) against Sturm Graz in the 2011/12 UEFA Europa League group stage. That victory in Graz made it two wins in Loko's four trips to Austria (D1 L1).

Links and trivia
• Fedor Smolov played twice against Salzburg in the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League group stage, scoring a late equaliser in Krasnodar's 1-1 home draw that November; Alexander Walke and Andreas Ulmer featured for the Austrian club.

• Szoboszlai received his first call-up to the Hungary national side for a 2017 friendly against Russia, although he did not play. He was in the side beaten 3-2 at home by Russia in the UEFA Nations League on 6 September, Anton Miranchuk appearing for the visitors.

• Salzburg assistant coach René Aufhauser scored Grazer AK's final goal in a 3-3 home draw against Lokomotiv in the 2002/03 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round second leg; the Russian club won 5-3 on aggregate.

• Vedran Ćorluka was in the Croatia side that beat Aufhauser's Austria 1-0 in the UEFA EURO 2008 group stage.

• Zlatko Junuzović set up the only goal in Austria's 1-0 UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying win against Russia in Moscow on 14 June 2015.

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• Chelsea in 2012/13 are the only 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) 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 München were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

• Bayern's victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2020 UEFA Champions League final was their 11th successive win in the competition (18 September 2019 to 23 August 2020), setting a new record. Bayern themselves (2 April 2013 to 27 November 2013) and Real Madrid (23 April 2014 to 18 February 2015) jointly held the previous best with ten, one more than Barcelona's winning run between 18 September 2002 and 18 February 2003.

Group stage
• Barcelona have finished as group winners on 21 occasions, five more than Real Madrid and Bayern München and six more than Manchester United. Barça also hold the record for the most unbeaten group stage campaigns with 13, five more than Real Madrid.

• Seven 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), Real Madrid (2011/12 and 2014/15) and Bayern (2019/20).

• 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, one more than Bayern München managed in 2019/20. Liverpool are next on the list having scored 23 in 2017/18 with Borussia Dortmund hitting 21 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).

• 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 6 of 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 September 2015 to December 2016.

• 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, ten 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), Basel (2014/15) and Atalanta (2019/20).

• 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), Porto (2015/16) and Ajax (2019/20) 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. Thirteen more players, also including Messi, have scored four times in a game, most recently Josip Iličić for Atalanta in the 2019/20 round of 16 second leg against Valencia. He was the third player to score four in a game that season, all away from home, after group stage quadruples from Bayern's Serge Gnabry (Matchday 2 at Tottenham) and Robert Lewandowski (Matchday 5 at Crvena zvezda).

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, Lionel Messi got ten goals in 2016/17, a figure matched by Robert Lewandowski in 2019/20; Ronaldo (2013/14, 2017/18) and Luiz Adriano (2014/15) scored nine while 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 de Madrid in that season's round of 16 second leg.
