Match background Only this chapter

While Ajax will look to wrap up first place in Group C, eliminated Beşiktaş need a win to have any hope of prolonging their European campaign into the spring.

• The Dutch club have already sealed progress with two games to spare thanks to four victories, including a 2-0 home win against Beşiktaş on Matchday 2 thanks to first-half goals from Steven Berghuis (17 ) and Sébastien Haller (43). It was Ajax's fifth win out of five against the Istanbul club.

• Ajax also won 5-1 at Sporting CP before beating Borussia Dortmund home (4-0) and away (3-1) to open up a six-point lead in the section. They will be confirmed in first place if they do not lose to Beşiktaş, or if Sporting do not beat Dortmund.

• The defeat by Ajax is one of four for Beşiktaş, who opened with a 2-1 home defeat against Dortmund and, after losing on Matchday 2, went down at home (1-4) and away (0-4) against Sporting. They cannot finish in the top two but will remain in contention for a third place and UEFA Europa League qualification if they beat Ajax and Dortmund lose to Sporting.

Previous meetings
• Before Matchday 2 the sides had not met since the 1993/94 European Cup Winners' Cup second round, a tie Ajax won 6-1 on aggregate. Frank Rijkaard and Ronald de Boer secured a 2-1 first-leg victory in Amsterdam before Jari Litmanen hit a hat-trick in a 4-0 win in Istanbul.

• Current Beşiktaş coach Sergen Yalçın played in both those games for the Black Eagles, providing the assist for Mehmet Özdilek's goal in Amsterdam.

• Ajax had also won both legs of their meeting with Beşiktaş in the 1966/67 European Cup first round, 2-0 at home and 2-1 away with Piet Keizer scoring in each game.

Form guide
Beşiktaş
• This is the eighth time Beşiktaş have appeared in the group stage; among Turkish clubs, only Galatasaray (16) have featured more frequently.

• Beşiktaş last appeared in 2017/18, when they won their section unbeaten ahead of Porto, Leipzig and Monaco to reach the round of 16 for the first time only for Bayern München to prove too strong in the first knockout round (0-5 a, 1-3 h).

• The Black Eagles were champions of Turkey for the 16th time in 2020/21, their third triumph in six years. They also lifted the Turkish Cup for the tenth time, completing the domestic double for the third time and the first since 2008/09.

• The Turkish side's 2020/21 UEFA Champions League campaign lasted a single match, a 3-1 loss at PAOK in the one-off second qualifying round tie. 

• Beşiktaş therefore moved into the UEFA Europa League but again fell at the first hurdle, Rio Ave winning 4-2 on penalties in Istanbul after a 1-1 draw in the third qualifying round.

• Beşiktaş's best European Cup campaign came in 1986/87 when they got to the quarter-finals before losing 7-0 on aggregate to Dynamo Kyiv.

• Beşiktaş have won only one of their last eight home European matches (D1 L6).

• The Turkish champions are one of only two sides still seeking their first point in the group stage, along with Swedish title holders Malmö in Group H.

• Beşiktaş have won only two of their nine fixtures against Dutch clubs, both coming in the last tie before this season, against Feyenoord in the 2014/15 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round (2-1 a, 3-1 h) with Demba Ba scoring a second-leg hat-trick in Istanbul.

• The Turkish team had failed to win any of their first three home games against Dutch visitors (D1 L2) before that second-leg success against Feyenoord.

Ajax
• Ajax are making their 17th appearance in the group stage, setting a new Dutch record – they were previously level with PSV Eindhoven on 16. It is their fourth straight appearance in the UEFA Champions League proper, and the second season running they have gained automatic qualification having not previously achieved it since 2014/15.

• Ajax were Dutch champions for the 35th time in 2020/21 – their second league championship in a row having also triumphed in 2018/19 with no title awarded in 2019/20 – and also lifted the Dutch Cup to claim their ninth domestic double.

• Ajax have qualified from their UEFA Champions League group for only the second time in their last nine appearances in the competition; they reached the semi-finals in 2018/19.

• The Amsterdam club were third in their section for the second year running in 2020/21, finishing behind Liverpool and Atalanta in Group D with six of their seven points coming from their two games against Danish side Midtjylland (2-1 a, 3-1 h). The other one came from a 2-2 draw at Atalanta on Matchday 2, a game in which they had led 2-0.

• Ajax subsequently moved into the UEFA Europa League, beating LOSC Lille 2-1 away and at home in the round of 32 before easing past Young Boys in the last 16 (3-0 h, 2-0 a) only to be eliminated in the quarter-finals by Roma (1-2 h, 1-1 a).

• A 1-0 loss at Liverpool on Matchday 5 last season is Ajax's only defeat in 14 away matches in the UEFA Champions League (W9 D4). Including the competition's qualifying phase, it is one loss in 20 matches on the road (W10 D9).

• Haller's four-goal haul at Sporting on Matchday 1 made him the first player to hit four on his UEFA Champions League debut since former Ajax striker Marco van Basten achieved the feat for AC Milan against IFK Göteborg in 1992. His seven goals in this season's competition is one behind top scorer Robert Lewandowski, with that pair and Cristiano Ronaldo the only players to have scored in all four group games.

• Ajax are one of four sides to have won their first four games, along with Liverpool (Group B), Bayern (E) and Juventus (H).

• Ajax have won nine of their 11 games against Turkish clubs, although they drew the last before this season, 0-0 at home to Fenerbahçe in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League group stage.

• A 1-0 loss at Fenerbahçe in the reverse fixture in 2015/16 is Ajax's sole defeat against Turkish opponents. They have won the other four away games, scoring ten goals and conceding only one.

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.
