Match background Only this chapter

Sporting CP and Borussia Dortmund are level on six points apiece as they meet in Lisbon with Group C's second qualification spot on the line.

• Dortmund's Donyell Malen scored the only goal of the sides' Matchday 2 meeting in Germany, giving his team maximum points after two games following their 2-1 opening win at Beşiktaş, but two defeats by Ajax (0-4 a, 1-3 h) have checked the German side's early momentum.

• In contrast Sporting lost their first two matches, a 5-1 home reverse at the hands of Ajax preceding their defeat in Dortmund. Since then, a 4-1 triumph at Beşiktaş on Matchday 3 – their biggest away UEFA Champions League victory – and a 4-0 home defeat of the Turkish champions – their biggest win in the competition – have revived their chances of joining Ajax in the round of 16.

• With Ajax on 12 points and Beşiktaş zero, Dortmund will go through if they beat Sporting. The Portuguese champions will progress if they win by two goals or more and will be confirmed in third place and qualify for the UEFA Europa League if they lose.

Previous meetings
• The sides had met in only two previous fixtures before Matchday 2, in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League group stage. Dortmund won both, first-half goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (9) and Julian Weigl (43) securing a 2-1 win in Lisbon on Matchday 3 despite Bruno César's 67th-minute reply.

• A 12th-minute Adrián Ramos strike proved to be the only goal when the teams reconvened in Dortmund on Matchday 4.

• Roman Bürki played 90 minutes in both games for Dortmund, as did Sebastián Coates for Sporting; Raphaël Guerreiro did likewise in Dortmund's home win with Felix Passlack starting BVB's victory in Lisbon.

Form guide
• This is Sporting's ninth UEFA Champions League group campaign, and a first since 2017/18.

• Sporting's most recent campaign ended with a third-placed finish in their section behind Barcelona and Juventus; they went on to reach the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals.

• The Lisbon club's last three European campaigns have all been in the UEFA Europa League. In 2020/21, they beat Aberdeen 1-0 at home in the one-off third qualifying round before a 4-1 play-off defeat against LASK, also in Lisbon.

• The Lions have progressed from the group stage only once before, in 2008/09; then they lost 12-1 on aggregate to Bayern (0-5 h, 1-7 a) – the heaviest aggregate defeat in the UEFA Champions League knockout phase.

• Sporting have won six of their last eight home European games, although they had conceded nine goals in the two prior to beating Beşiktaş on Matchday 4. The Matchday 1 loss to Ajax is one of four in their last seven UEFA Champions League group matches in Lisbon (W2 D1).

• Sporting claimed their 19th Portuguese Liga title in 2020/21, and a first since 2001/02. The Lisbon side also won the Portuguese League Cup, their third victory in the competition – all in the last four seasons.

• Sporting's defeat in Dortmund on Matchday 2 made it five successive losses against Bundesliga clubs.

• The Lisbon club have won only two of their previous 13 home meetings with German teams (D5 L6). A 4-2 home victory against Schalke in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League group stage is their only win in ten matches, home and away (D1 L8).

• Dortmund boasted the top scorer in the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League, Erling Haaland scoring ten goals in his eight appearances, all in his first six games. The Norwegian was also on target in this season's opening win at Beşiktaş but sat out Matchdays 2 and 4 through injury.

• In 2020/21 BVB finished first in Group F ahead of Lazio, Club Brugge and Zenit with four wins and 13 points. They then edged out Sevilla in the round of 16 (3-2 a, 2-2 h), Haaland scoring four of their five goals, but lost 2-1 away and at home against eventual runners-up Manchester City in the quarter-finals.

• Third in the Bundesliga behind Bayern München and Leipzig in 2020/21, and winners of the German Cup for the fifth time with a 4-1 defeat of Leipzig in the final, this is Dortmund's 16th UEFA Champions League campaign; they were winners in 1997, and runners-up in 2013. BVB have reached the round of 16 or better in seven of their last eight participations.

• Having parted company with Lucien Favre in December 2020, Dortmund's knockout games last season were overseen by Edin Terzić; Marco Rose joined as coach from Borussia Mönchengladbach in July.

• The win at Beşiktaş on Matchday 1 was only Dortmund's seventh victory in their last 23 European away matches (D4 L12), although all of those wins have come in their last 15 (L8).

• Dortmund's last games against a Portuguese club before this season came in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League round of 16, when they beat Benfica 4-1 on aggregate (0-1 a, 4-0 h). That first-leg loss in Lisbon made their record in Portugal W2 L4, although the two victories had come in the two visits preceding that defeat.

Links and trivia
• Axel Witsel played for Sporting's Lisbon rivals Benfica between 2011 and 2012; his only two appearances in the city derby, both in 2011/12, each ended in a 1-0 home win.

• Malen opened the scoring as PSV Eindhoven won 3-2 at home to Sporting in the UEFA Europa League group stage on 19 September 2019. He also played 90 minutes of the 4-0 loss in Lisbon on 28 November.

• Sarabia was a late substitute in Paris's 2-1 loss at Dortmund in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg, and played 63 minutes as the French side won the return 2-0 to progress.

• Neto featured in both legs as Zenit lost to Dortmund in the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League round of 16 (2-4 h, 2-1 a), Marco Reus scoring one goal and setting up another in the German club's first-leg win in Russia.

• Julian Brandt started both legs as Bayer Leverkusen beat Sporting in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League round of 32 (1-0 a, 3-1 h).

• Meunier set up Thorgan Hazard's goal in Belgium's 1-0 win against holders Portugal in the UEFA EURO 2020 round of 16. Witsel also featured for Belgium, with Palhinha playing for Portugal and Gonçalves an unused substitute.

Latest news

• Sporting have kept three successive clean sheets in the league.

• The four goals Sporting have conceded in their 11 Liga matches to date is their best defensive record at this stage in 31 years. They have been breached only once in their last six league outings.

• On 15 November Switzerland qualified for the World Cup with a 4-0 win against Bulgaria, although the suspended Manuel Akanji and Gregor Kobel, who missed out due to a hip injury, did not feature; both played 90 minutes for Dortmund on Saturday.

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.
