While Cristiano Ronaldo will be vying to stretch his lead in the goalscoring charts, Maccabi Haifa FC hope to break their duck, as investigates in this look at the key facts and figures ahead of Matchday 6.

Maccabi Haifa FC are hoping to avoid becoming only the second team in UEFA Champions League history to finish a group-stage programme without a goal. The first side to record that unwanted feat were RC Deportivo La Coruña in 2004/05.

2 FC Girondins de Bordeaux, Chelsea FC and FC Barcelona have conceded two goals in the group stage, the joint lowest total in the competition.

Ronaldo is the top scorer so far with four goals.

4 The departures of Ronald Koeman (AZ Alkmaar) and Markus Babbel (VfB Stuttgart) this weekend took the number of coaching dismissals at UEFA Champions League clubs to four since the group stage began. Juande Ramos (PFC CSKA Moskva) and Temuri Ketsbaia (Olympiacos FC) were the other two.

8 Eight teams have ended a UEFA Champions League group stage without a single point. Debreceni VSC and Haifa are in danger of joining the club.

9 APOEL FC have had only nine shots on target, fewer than any other club.

10 Rangers FC have not won in ten games in UEFA competition – their worst ever run – since beating Sporting Clube de Portugal 2-0 in the second leg of their 2007/08 UEFA Cup quarter-final tie.

11 Filippo Inzaghi has been caught offside eleven times, more than any other player in the competition.

12 Real Madrid CF, ACF Fiorentina and Arsenal FC are the highest scorers in the groups stage so far with 12 goals apiece.

14 Manchester United FC are unbeaten in their last 14 UEFA Champions League away matches, discounting the 2008 and 2009 finals which were played at neutral venues.

16 Juventus are unbeaten in 16 home games in the UEFA Champions League. The Bianconeri suffered their last home reverse in Europe when losing 1-0 to Deportivo in the first knockout round in 2003/04. Their defensive record during that run has been formidable, with eleven clean sheets and just six goals conceded.

15 Debrecen have conceded 15 goals to date and another heavy defeat could threaten the record jointly held by FC Dynamo Kyiv (2007/08) and Ferencvárosi TC (1995/96) of 19 goals shipped in a group stage.

20 Chelsea's unbeaten UEFA Champions League run at Stamford Bridge stands at 20 games, 15 of which ended in a victory for the Blues. Chelsea's last home defeat came in February 2006, when Barcelona won 2-1 in the first knockout round.

23 United's 23-match unbeaten home run in the UEFA Champions League was ended by Beşiktaş JK on Matchday 5. United had not lost at Old Trafford since a 1-0 reverse against Milan on 23 February 2005.

24 Diego has suffered 24 fouls, more than any other player.

47 Arsenal have managed 47 shots on target, more than any other side.

50 Matchday 6 brings Debrecen's 50th game in UEFA club competition – a trip to face Olympique Lyonnais – while R. Standard de Liège will be making their 50th appearance in the European Champion Clubs' Cup against AZ Alkmaar.

90 Fiorentina coach Cesare Prandelli presided over a club record 90th league victory in Sunday's 2-0 win against Atalanta BC, moving one ahead of Fulvio Bernardini, the man who led the Viola to their first Scudetto in 1956.

99 Liverpool FC have won 99 matches in the European Champion Clubs' Cup.

200 Matchday 5 marked Juventus' 200th game in the European Champion Clubs' Cup.

500 The 2-0 win against Stoke City FC on Saturday was Arsène Wenger's 500th Premier League match in charge. The Arsenal manager has recorded 293 wins, 127 draws and 80 defeats.

500 Steven Gerrard made his 500th Liverpool appearance in the 0-0 draw at Blackburn Rovers FC on Saturday, having made his debut against the same opponents on 29 November 1998 at Anfield, a match Liverpool won 2-0.
