Match background Only this chapter

Buoyed by causing one of the greatest shocks in UEFA Champions League history, surprise Group D leaders Sheriff now travel to winless, and goalless, Inter.

• Debutants Sheriff made it two wins from two on Matchday 2 thanks to Sébastien Thill's 90th-minute goal at Real Madrid that secured a remarkable 2-1 victory. The Moldovan champions had already beaten Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 at home, those results giving them a five-point advantage over Inter, who lost 1-0 at home to Madrid before a 0-0 draw at Shakhtar.

• This is the sides' first fixture, and a first meeting for both with a club from their opponents' country.

Form guide
Inter
• Inter are the last Italian team to win the UEFA Champions League, in 2010 – their third European Cup triumph, and first in 45 years.

• This is the 15th time Inter have been in the group stage and the fourth season in a row having missed out for six consecutive years between 2011/12 and 2018/19.

• Inter's last three UEFA Champions League campaigns have ended in the group stage. Last season, Antonio Conte's side won only one of their six games to finish fourth in Group B on six points.

• The Nerazzurri responded to that early European exit by finishing first in Serie A, 12 points above runners-up AC Milan; it was their first title in 11 years and their 19th overall.

• Conte left Inter in the summer to be replaced as coach by Simone Inzaghi, who moved to Milan after guiding Lazio to the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League round of 16.

• Inter have won only three of their last 18 UEFA Champions League matches (D7 L8).

• A 2-0 defeat of Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 3 in 2019/20 is Inter's sole success in their last nine home UEFA Champions League games (D5 L3). They have won none of the last five (D2 L3).

Sheriff
• Sheriff's success in coming through qualifying for the first time means Moldova are the 34th country to feature in the group stage and the first newcomers since Azerbaijan, with Qarabağ, in 2017/18.

• Sheriff are the 146th team to appear in the group stage, and the only debutants in 2021/22.

• Domestic champions for the 19th time – and sixth in succession – in 2020/21, Sheriff are also the only Moldovan side to reach the UEFA Europa League group stage having appeared in 2009/10, 2010/11, 2013/14 and 2017/18.

• The Tiraspol club were unbeaten in their eight UEFA Champions League qualifying matches this season, winning both legs against both Teuta of Albania in the first qualifying round (4-0 a, 1-0 h) and Alashkert of Armenia in the second (1-0 a, 3-1 h). They were held 1-1 at Serbian side Crvena zvezda – the 1991 European champions – in the first leg of their third qualifying round tie, but Danilo Arboleda's goal at the end of the first half at the Sheriff Stadion proved enough to send the home side through.

• Sheriff then saw off group stage regulars Dinamo Zagreb in the play-offs, a 3-0 home win preceding a goalless draw in Croatia.

• Sheriff were beaten 5-3 on penalties by Dundalk after a 1-1 home draw in last season's one-off UEFA Europa League third qualifying round tie. They had started the season in the UEFA Champions League, beating Fola Esch of Luxembourg 2-0 at home in the first qualifying round before a 2-1 loss at Qarabağ in the next stage.

• That defeat at Qarabağ is Sheriff's only reverse in their last nine away European games (W5 D3).

Links and trivia
• Boban Nikolov played 13 Serie B games on loan at Lecce in the second half of 2020/21.

• Sheriff's Brazilian-born defender Fernando Costanza has Italian citizenship.

• Sheriff's player-goalkeeper coach Serghei Pașcenco won his first cap for Moldova in a 2-1 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifying defeat against Italy in Lecce in 2005, former Inter striker Christian Vieri opening the scoring.

• Dimitris Kolovos scored his only goal for Greece against Edin Džeko's Bosnia and Herzegovina in a UEFA EURO 2020 qualifier on 26 March 2019, his late equaliser earning the visitors a 2-2 draw.

• Italian coach Roberto Bordin was in charge of Sheriff between 2016 and 2018, winning the league title twice and the Moldovan Cup in 2016/17 and taking the club into the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League group stage. He is currently the head coach of the Moldova national team.

• No Moldovan player has appeared in either of Sheriff's opening two Group D fixtures.

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 that they extended to 15 before being held at Atlético de Madrid on Matchday 5 in 2020/21. 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, four 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), Barcelona (2017/18) and Manchester City (2020/21) 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.

• Marseille hold the record for successive defeats in the competition, group stage to final, having lost 13 in a row between March 2012 and November 2020. The 2-0 loss at home to Porto on Matchday 4 of the 2020/21 competition surpassed Anderlecht's previous competition record of 12 losses 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), Lokomotiv Moskva (2002/03, first group stage) and eventual finalists Juventus (2002/03, 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. Fifteen more players, also including Messi and Robert Lewandowski twice, have scored four times in a game, most recently Sébastien Haller for Ajax at Sporting CP on Matchday 1 in 2021/22. That was the fifth quadruple in succession to be scored away from home after Bayern's Serge Gnabry and Lewandowski (group stage v Tottenham and Crvena zvezda respectively) and Josip Iličić (Atalanta v Valencia, round of 16 second leg) all achieved the feat in 2019/20 and Olivier Giroud did likewise for Chelsea at Sevilla in the 2020/21 group stage.

• Cristiano Ronaldo set a new record for a UEFA Champions League group stage with 11 goals in 2015/16, 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 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 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.

• Youssoufa Moukoko is the youngest player to have appeared, aged 16 years 18 days for Borussia Dortmund at Zenit on 8 December 2020. He replaced Celestine Babayaro, who was 16 years 87 days when he started for Anderlecht against Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994; Babayaro 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.
