Match background Only this chapter

Salzburg are still top of Group G despite a Matchday 4 defeat as they visit a LOSC Lille side whose own win last time out has brought them back into contention.

• While Salzburg went down 2-1 at Wolfsburg in their most recent fixture, LOSC were 2-1 winners at Sevilla to move on to five points, level with Wolfsburg and two behind Salzburg.

• The Austrian champions were 2-1 winners at home to their French counterparts on Matchday 2, thanks to two penalties from Karim Adeyemi (35, 53), a 62nd-minute Burak Yılmaz reply not enough for the visitors. That was the teams' first contest, and LOSC's first game against an Austrian club.

• Salzburg were unbeaten in their first three Group G games, opening with a 1-1 draw at Sevilla in which they were awarded three penalties but converted only one; they were 3-1 winners at home against Wolfsburg before their defeat in Germany. LOSC, meanwhile, have drawn both home games 0-0, against Wolfsburg and Sevilla on Matchdays 1 and 3 respectively.

• Salzburg will go through with a win and will top the group with a victory if Wolfsburg do not also win at home to Sevilla. LOSC can neither go through nor be eliminated on Matchday 5. 

Form guide
• This is LOSC's seventh UEFA Champions League group stage campaign, but just their second in the past nine seasons.

• Les Dogues' last appearance came in 2019/20, when they finished bottom of a section that also included Valencia, Chelsea and Ajax. LOSC lost five of their six games, the exception a 1-1 draw at home to Valencia on Matchday 3.

• Only one of those previous six campaigns has extended into the knockout phase, in 2006/07 when they lost 1-0 home and away against Manchester United in the round of 16.

• In 2020/21, LOSC's European campaign began in the UEFA Europa League group stage, where they finished second in their section behind AC Milan on 11 points, recording a notable 3-0 away win against the Rossoneri to help them finish above Sparta Praha and Celtic.

• LOSC's campaign was ended by Ajax in the round of 32, the Amsterdam club winning 2-1 in both France and the Netherlands.

• The win in Seville last time out ended LOSC's ten-match run without a UEFA Champions League group stage victory (D3 L7).

• LOSC have lost five of their last eight home games in the UEFA Champions League group stage (D3) and are without a win at their own ground at this stage since a 3-1 defeat of AEK Athens on Matchday 3 in 2006/07. Their record since is D6 L6.

• A 2-1 defeat of Sparta on Matchday 5 of last season's UEFA Europa League is LOSC's sole win in their last 18 home European matches (D9 L8).

• LOSC claimed their fourth Ligue 1 title, and first since 2010/11, last season, finishing a point clear of Paris Saint-Germain. Their tally of 83 points was the highest in the club's history; LOSC suffered only three league defeats all season.

• Salzburg are taking part in a third successive group stage campaign. They were third in their section behind Liverpool and Napoli in 2019/20, having qualified automatically to make their first group appearance since 1994.

• In 2020/21, Salzburg beat Maccabi Tel-Aviv in the play-offs before again finishing third in their group, picking up four points in Group A. They lost both games against Bayern München and Atlético de Madrid, but won 3-1 at Lokomotiv Moskva after a 2-2 home draw to finish ahead of the Russian club.

• A side coached by Jesse Marsch therefore moved into the UEFA Europa League, where they lost 2-0 at home and 2-1 away against eventual winners Villarreal in the round of 32. It was the second successive European campaign in which Salzburg had been eliminated at that stage following their 2019/20 loss against Eintracht Frankfurt (1-4 a, 2-2 h).

• Having suffered 13 successive defeats in UEFA Champions League qualifying before 2019/20, Salzburg won 5-2 on aggregate against Maccabi in last season's play-offs (2-1 a, 3-1 h) and were also victorious at the same stage this season, seeing off Brøndby (2-1 h, 2-1 a).

• This is Salzburg's fourth group stage appearance, a new Austrian record; they had previously been level with Sturm Graz on three.

• Salzburg won one of their three away games on each of their three previous UEFA Champions League appearances. They have won two of their last five away European matches (D1 L2) having managed two victories in the previous nine (D1 L6).

• Marsch left Salzburg to join RB Leipzig in the summer after two years in the post; he has been succeeded by German-born Matthias Jaissle, who returned to Salzburg after six months in charge of Liefering having been Salzburg's Under-18 coach between 2019 and January 2021.

• The Austrian club won an eighth successive Bundesliga title in 2020/21 – their 15th overall – adding the Austrian Cup to complete a hat-trick of domestic doubles and an eighth in total, all in the last ten seasons.

• Adeyemi has won four of Salzburg's five penalties in this season's group stage, missing one at Sevilla but scoring both against LOSC. Luka Sučić took two penalties in Seville, scoring the first but missing the second.

• Prior to Matchday 2 Salzburg had not faced French opposition since losing to Marseille in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League semi-finals (0-2 a, 2-1 h aet). That first-leg loss was their second in their four games in France, their sole victory 2-0 at Nice in the 2016/17 UEFA Europa League group stage.

• That loss in Marseille is Salzburg's only reverse in their last six games against French clubs, home and away (W4 D1). Overall their record is W5 D1 L3.

Latest news

• The French champions have managed only six victories in their 19 games in all competitions in 2021/22 (D7 L6); they were held 2-2 at Monaco on Friday having been two goals up.

• Monaco's equaliser on Friday came in the 83rd minute; LOSC have dropped eight points in the final 15 minutes of Ligue 1 games this season, the most in the division.

• LOSC are without a Ligue 1 win since a 2-0 home defeat of Marseille on 3 October; their record since is D3 L2.

• That win against Marseille – LOSC's third successive league victory – was their only one in six games in all competitions (D2 L3), before they prevailed on Matchday 4.

• Tiago Djaló scored his first goal for LOSC in a 1-1 home draw against Angers on 6 November, a match in which Amadou Onana was sent off in added time.

• Jonathan David scored LOSC's goal in a 1-1 home draw against Brest on 23 October, another in a 2-1 loss at Paris Saint-Germain on 29 October and one at Sevilla; his double at Monaco means he has provided seven of their last nine goals and ten of the last 14.

• The draw at Brest was the first Ligue 1 game in which David scored that LOSC had failed to win, after victories in the first 15; Paris was therefore the first defeat.

• David has scored ten of LOSC's 18 league goals in 2021/22.

• Before Djaló's strike, David had also scored LOSC's previous six league goals, the third player to achieve that feat for the club after Fernand Devlaminck in 1957 and Bernard Bureau in 1986.

• David's double on Friday took him on to 22 Ligue 1 goals in 2021, the joint most alongside Kylian Mbappé.

• LOSC's total of 17 points after 14 games is 12 less than at the same stage of last season.

• LOSC have conceded 21 league goals so far; after 14 games in 2020/21, they had let in ten.

• LOSC ended Paris's run of eight successive French Super Cup wins on 1 August, Xeka scoring the only goal to give his side their first victory in the competition. LOSC were runners-up in 1955 and 2011.

• Sven Botman has not played since suffering a groin injury in the Netherlands' 5-0 home win against Wales in 2023 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying on 12 October.

• A hamstring injury prevented Djaló joining up with Portugal's Under-21 side for their recent fixtures, although he played 90 minutes for LOSC at Monaco.

• Renato Sanches put Portugal in front in the second minute of their final 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier at home to Serbia on 14 November, but the visitors came back to win 2-1 and consign Portugal to the play-offs. José Fonte also featured for Portugal, with both players having been late substitutes in the goalless draw away to the Republic of Ireland on 11 November.

• Burak Yılmaz provided two assists as Turkey defeated Gibraltar 6-0 on 13 November; his side finished in a World Cup play-off spot.

• Goalkeeper Ivo Grbić made his Croatia debut in a 7-1 win in Malta on 11 November and also started the 1-0 win at home to Russia three days later that clinched his country's World Cup qualification.

• David scored the only goal as Canada defeated Costa Rica 1-0 on 12 November.

• Timothy Weah scored the United States' goal in their 1-1 draw in World Cup qualification in Jamaica on on 16 November.

• Gabriel Gudmundsson, Renato Sanches (both muscular pains) and Jonathan Bamba (ankle) were left out of LOSC's squad at the weekend.

• Salzburg have won 19 of their 24 games in all competitions this season; the Matchday 4 loss at Wolfsburg is their sole defeat. They were held 0-0 at home by Admira on Saturday.

• That ended Salzburg's run of scoring in 43 successive home league games, a new Austrian Bundesliga record. They had last drawn a blank with another 0-0 draw, against Sturm Graz on 10 March 2019.

• The Austrian champions had also scored in 41 successive games in all competitions, since a 2-0 loss at home to Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 on 18 February. That was the only one of Salzburg's last 50 games in which they had failed to find the net before Saturday.

• The Austrian champions have scored 60 goals this season and conceded only 17.

• Salzburg had won their last eight home league games before drawing with Admira; that was only the second time they had dropped points in their last 17 Bundesliga fixtures in their own stadium.

• A 3-1 win at home to LASK on 3 October was Salzburg's 14th successive Austrian Bundesliga victory, matching Rapid Wien's league record set in 1987, before a 1-1 draw at Altach on 16 October ended the run.

• Salzburg had won eight successive away Austrian Bundesliga games, eclipsing the club record set in 2011, before being held at Altach. They drew their next away league game too, 2-2 at Ried on 30 October, before a 1-0 win at Austria Wien on 6 November.

• Defeat at Wolfsburg was Salzburg's first since a 3-2 league reverse at Tirol on 21 April; their record between those losses was W24 D4.

• Salzburg had not conceded more than once in a game this season before that 2-2 draw at Ried; they also shipped two in their next fixture, at Wolfsburg. They have managed nine clean sheets, although only three in their last ten games.

• Eighteen different players have scored for Salzburg this season.

• Karim Adeyemi is the Austrian Bundesliga's top scorer on 11 goals. He has seven in his last nine Salzburg matches in all competitions.

• Nicolas Seiwald and substitute Chikwubuike Adamu earned their first caps for Austria in a 4-2 home win against Israel in 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying on 12 November.

• Noah Okafor scored his first goal for Switzerland in a 4-0 home win against Bulgaria on 14 November that booked their place in next year's tournament.

• Philipp Köhn, who was included in the Swiss squad for the first time, was an unused substitute in that game.

• Bryan Okoh also received his first call-up for Switzerland, but tore his cruciate ligament in training and is expected to be sidelined for several months.

• Mohamed Camara helped Mali secure a place in the World Cup play-offs with a 3-0 win away to Rwanda on 11 November; five days later, Jérôme Onguéné played 90 minutes as Cameroon beat Ivory Coast 1-0 to reach the same stage.

• Benjamin Šeško (hamstring, out since 16 October) and Oumar Solet (knee, 19 September) returned as second-half substitutes on Matchday 4.

• On 4 October, Salzburg were named team of the season at Austria's annual Bruno Awards. Jesse Marsch and Patson Daka, who both departed in the summer, took the coach and player prizes respectively.

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.
