Match background Only this chapter

Marseille are hoping to avoid making an unwanted piece of UEFA Champions League history as they welcome coach André Villas-Boas's former club Porto to the Stade Vélodrome.

• The French side have lost their first three games in Group C to stretch their run of successive UEFA Champions League defeats to 12, matching the competition record.

• OM's latest defeat was a 3-0 reverse at Porto on Matchday 3, first-half goals from Moussa Marega and Sérgio Oliveira, the latter a penalty, added to after the break by Luis Díaz to give Porto six points in the section – three behind group leaders Manchester City but three ahead of Olympiacos.

Previous meetings
• Porto have now won four of their five contests against Marseille, the exception a 1-1 draw at the Stade Vélodrome in the 2007/08 UEFA Champions League group stage thanks to Lucho González's late penalty equaliser. The Portuguese side won 2-1 at the Estádio do Dragão.

• José Mourinho's side took six points off OM in the group stage of their victorious UEFA Champions League campaign in 2003/04 with a 3-2 success in France and a 1-0 home win, Dmitri Alenichev scoring the decisive goal in both matches.

Form guide
• Marseille are the only side still to score in this season's group stage, going down 1-0 at Olympiacos on Matchday 1 before 3-0 losses at home to Manchester City and at Porto.

• The French side are making their tenth appearance in the UEFA Champions League group stage, but their first since 2013/14. Three of those previous nine campaigns have extended into the knockout rounds, including the inaugural edition in 1992/93 when OM became the first, and so far only, French side to win the European Cup.

• Marseille most recently made the knockout stages in 2011/12, when they reached the quarter-finals.

• Seven years ago, OM finished bottom of their group behind Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli, losing all six games.

• This season's results have extended Marseille's losing run in the UEFA Champions League to 12 matches, level with Anderlecht's record. Their last success in the competition was a 1-0 home victory against Internazionale in the 2011/12 round of 16 first leg.

• Second in Ligue 1 in 2019/20, Marseille are taking part in UEFA competition for the first time since 2018/19. Then they finished bottom of a UEFA Europa League section also including Eintracht Frankfurt, Lazio and Apollon Limassol with one point having lost five of their six matches.

• Marseille are without a win in 11 European matches, losing ten, since a 2-0 victory at home to Salzburg in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League semi-final first leg. They went on to lose the second leg 2-1 but still progressed to the final, where they were beaten 3-0 by Atlético de Madrid in Lyon.

• Marseille have lost their last four home European matches having won the previous four and eight of the previous nine (D1).

• OM have won their last three games at home to Portuguese clubs, most recently beating Braga 3-0 in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League round of 32 (3-1 aggregate). All four of their wins against Portuguese sides overall have come in their seven fixtures at the Vélodrome (D1 L2).

• Marseille have finished outside the top two in their UEFA Champions League group in five of their last seven participations.

• Beaten 3-1 at City in their first Group C game, successive home wins against Olympiacos (2-0) and Marseille have lifted Porto into second place in the standings.

• This is Porto's 24th UEFA Champions League group campaign, fewer only than Real Madrid and Barcelona (both 25).

• The Portuguese side have qualified for the last 16 on each of their last three appearances in the group stage.

• Porto's 2019/20 UEFA Champions League campaign lasted a single tie, however, Krasnodar beating them on away goals in the third qualifying round (1-0 a, 2-3 h). They went on to finish first in a UEFA Europa League section including Rangers, Young Boys and Feyenoord, but were beaten by Bayer Leverkusen in the round of 32 (1-2 a, 1-3 h).

• Porto have lost four of their last seven matches in the UEFA Champions League proper (W3) but have been beaten only once in 12 games in the competition's group stage (W9 D2), winning four in a row before defeat on Matchday 1 this season.

• Sérgio Conceição's side won the club's eighth domestic double in 2019/20, claiming Porto's 29th league title and a 17th Portuguese Cup.

• The Dragons have now won their last five games against French clubs, home and away, including their last two in France; most recently they were 3-0 victors at Monaco in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage.

• Porto have lost just one of their last eight games against French opposition, home and away (W6 D1).

• The Dragons have lost only five of their 26 matches against French sides, winning 15 – most notably a 3-0 win against Monaco for Mourinho's side in the 2004 UEFA Champions League final in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

Links and trivia
• Villas-Boas made a memorable impression during his only season in charge of Porto in 2010/11, steering the Dragons to the Portuguese Liga title unbeaten and adding the domestic cup and the UEFA Europa League before taking over at Chelsea. He had been appointed by Porto in June 2010 after his first season in management, when he led Académica de Coimbra to 11th place in the final standings having taken charge in October 2009 with the club bottom of the table.

• Sérgio Conceição was Nantes coach between December 2016 and June 2017, taking the club from 19th place in Ligue 1 to seventh before departing for Porto. He oversaw a 3-2 home win against Marseille in February 2017, with Valentin Rongier – now of OM – playing 86 minutes.

• Conceição scored in Lazio's 2-0 win at Marseille in the 1999/2000 UEFA Champions League second group stage; he also played 90 minutes in the Italian side's 5-1 home win the following March.

• Have played together:
Valentin Rongier & Sérgio Oliveira (Nantes 2016/17)
Florian Thauvin & Chancel Mbemba (Newcastle 2015/16)
Boubacar Kamara, Mickaël Cuisance & Malang Sarr (France Under-17s, U19)

• Have played in France:
Malang Sarr (Nice 2016–20)
Sérgio Oliveira (Nantes 2016/17)
Moussa Marega (Évry 2011/12, Le Poiré-sur-Vie 2012/13, Amiens 2013/14)

• When Sarr was coming through Nice's youth set-up, Jordan Amavi (2013–15) and Valère Germain (2015/16) were in the senior side.

• International team-mates:
Hiroki Sakai, Yuto Nagatomo & Shoya Nakajima (Japan)
Nemanja Radonjić & Marko Grujić (Serbia)
Darío Benedetto & Agustín Marchesín (Argentina)

• Benedetto scored both goals past Marchesín in Club América's 2-0 away win at Santos Laguna in the Mexican league on 14 August 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.

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.
