Match background Only this chapter

Paris Saint-Germain know their margin for error is getting smaller as they welcome Leipzig to the Parc des Princes with ground to make up in Group H.

• The French club eased past their German rivals in last season's semi-final but got a taste of their own medicine on Matchday 3 of the current campaign, goals either side of half-time from former Paris winger Christopher Nkunku (42) and Emil Forsberg (57 pen) securing a comeback victory after Ángel Di María had put the visitors into a sixth-minute lead.

• That left Leipzig level with Manchester United on six points at the top of Group H, with Paris and İstanbul Başakşehir three points behind.

Previous meetings
• Thomas Tuchel's side were comfortable winners against Leipzig at the Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica on 18 August. An early Marquinhos goal (13) was added to by Di María three minutes before the break, Juan Bernat ending any lingering hopes for Julian Nagelsmann's Leipzig with a third goal 12 minutes into the second half.

• While that was the teams' first competitive fixture, Leipzig defeated Paris 4-2 in a July 2014 friendly when they were in the German second tier. Paris defender Marquinhos scored an own goal with Yussuf Poulsen also on target for Leipzig.

Form guide
• Tuchel's team have lost two of their three games in this season's competition 2-1, going down at home to Manchester United on Matchday 1 and at Leipzig either side of a 2-0 victory away to İstanbul Başakşehir.

• Ligue 1 champions for the seventh time in eight years in 2019/20, and ninth time overall, Paris also won both domestic cups last season. This is the French side's ninth successive UEFA Champions League campaign and 13th in total.

• Paris reached their first European Cup final last season, only to lose 1-0 to Bayern München in Lisbon. They had beaten Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16 (1-2 a, 2-0 h), Atalanta in the one-off quarter-final (2-1) and Leipzig in the semi-final en route to the decider.

• The Parisians have reached the knockout stages on their last eight UEFA Champions League appearances, although 2019/20 marked their first semi-final appearance since 1995. They suffered three successive last-16 defeats prior to last season.

• Tuchel's side finished first in a section also including Real Madrid, Club Brugge and Galatasaray in 2019/20. They won five of their six games, drawing the other, and conceded only two goals to finish five points above Madrid.

• Paris had scored in 34 successive UEFA Champions League games, matching the competition record set by Madrid between 2011 and 2014, before drawing a blank in last season's final.

• Paris have won 13 of their last 21 UEFA Champions League matches (D3 L5). The Matchday 1 defeat by United was only their fourth in their last 56 European home games (W36 D16).

• That loss to United also ended Paris's 24-match unbeaten run in the UEFA Champions League group stage at the Parc des Princes (W19 D5), since a December 2004 reversal against CSKA Moskva (1-3). Their home group record since the start of the 2017/18 campaign is now W8 D1 L1.

• Paris faced three German clubs in 2019/20. The 2-0 win against Dortmund in the last 16 second leg extended the French side's record of never having lost at home to German visitors (W7 D1).

• A 3-1 defeat at Bayern on Matchday 6 of the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League ended Paris's seven-match unbeaten run against German clubs, home and away (W5 D2). Their overall record since then is W2 L3.

• Leipzig have won both home games in the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League, defeating İstanbul Başakşehir 2-0 before beating Paris. In between, however, they went down 5-0 at Manchester United – their heaviest European defeat.

• This is Leipzig's third UEFA Champions League group campaign, all in the last four seasons, and their fourth foray into European football overall.

• The 2019/20 campaign proved to be the most successful in Leipzig's brief European history, Nagelsmann's side going all the way to the semi-finals. Leipzig picked up 11 points to finish first in their section – they had come third in their two previous group stage campaigns in UEFA competition – ahead of Lyon, Benfica and Zenit.

• Leipzig then beat 2018/19 runners-up Tottenham in their first UEFA Champions League knockout tie (1-0 a, 3-0 h) before a 2-1 defeat of Atlético de Madrid in their one-off quarter-final in Lisbon prior to that defeat by Paris.

• Leipzig have won ten of their 19 UEFA Champions League fixtures (D3 L6).

• Third in the Bundesliga for the second season in a row in 2019/20, this is Leipzig's fourth European campaign and only their 38th match. In 2017/18 they became the first team to make their European debut in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

• Leipzig won three of their four away games in last season's UEFA Champions League, drawing the other. Their away record in Europe is now W6 D5 L6.

• Leipzig's first ever European game was a 1-1 draw against Monaco in September 2017, on Matchday 1 of that season's UEFA Champions League. A 4-1 success in the return was the German club's first away European victory.

• Leipzig's last trip to France brought a 2-2 draw at Lyon in last season's UEFA Champions League group stage. The Matchday 3 defeat of Paris was their first win in five games against Ligue 1 opponents (D1 L3), Leipzig having been unbeaten in their first three matches against French clubs (W2 D1).

Links and trivia
• Leipzig coach Nagelsmann's career was ended by a knee injury in 2008 when he was a player in Augsburg's second team, then coached by Tuchel. Following his retirement, Nagelsmann was appointed by Tuchel to the club's scouting team to study future opponents, his first step towards becoming a coach.

• Tuchel and Nagelsmann met twice in Germany as opposing coaches, Tuchel's Dortmund drawing 2-2 away at Nagelsmann's Hoffenheim and beating them 2-1 at home in the 2016/17 Bundesliga.

• Nagelsmann finished ahead of Tuchel to take third place in the vote for the best coach in Europe at the 2019/20 UEFA Awards, with the two ranked behind fellow Germans Hansi Flick and Jürgen Klopp.

• Born in the Paris suburb of Lagny-sur-Marne, Nkunku joined Leipzig from Paris in summer 2019. He had signed for the French club in 2010 and made his first-team debut against Shakhtar Donetsk on Matchday 6 of the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League.

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.

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.
