Match background

Wednesday 28 October 2020 - 21.00CET (20.00 local time) Old Trafford, Manchester

Manchester United and Leipzig are both looking to consolidate after fine opening Group H wins as they meet at Old Trafford.

? While an 87th-minute Marcus Rashford goal earned United a 2-1 victory away to last season's finalists Paris SaintGermain, Angeli?o's double helped Leipzig to a 2-0 home success against group stage debutants stanbul Baakehir.

? This is the sides' first meeting and, while Leipzig will have fond memories of their only previous contests against an English club, United can draw on an unbeaten home record against German visitors stretching back almost 20 years.

Form guide Manchester United ? This is United's 23rd UEFA Champions League group stage campaign, more than any other English side and fewer only than Barcelona and Real Madrid (both 25) and Porto and Bayern M?nchen (both 24) overall. They have qualified for the knockout phase on 18 occasions, also an English record.

? The three-time European champions' most recent appearance in the competition came in 2018/19, when they lost to Barcelona in the quarter-finals after a spectacular round of 16 comeback against Paris.

? Ole Gunnar Solskj?r's side reached the UEFA Europa League semi-finals in 2019/20, losing to eventual champions Sevilla in the last four. They had finished first in their section on 13 points before comfortable aggregate wins against Club Brugge (6-1) and LASK (7-1) in the round of 32 and 16 respectively and a 1-0 extra-time defeat of Copenhagen in the one-off quarter-final. Sevilla proved too strong in the semis, however, United going down 2-1 in Cologne.

? United have finished first in their UEFA Champions League section 15 times, although only once since 2013/14.

? The Manchester club finished third in the Premier League in 2019/20.

? European Cup winners in 1968, United lifted the UEFA Champions League trophy in 1999 and 2008, also reaching the final in 2009 and 2011 ? the latter four all under Sir Alex Ferguson.

? United have lost their last two home UEFA Champions League matches, and four of the last six (W1 D1), although they won all five games at Old Trafford in the 2019/20 UEFA Europa League, scoring 15 goals and conceding only one.

? This is the Red Devils' first meeting with a German club since a 3-2 loss at Wolfsburg in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League group stage with Anthony Martial scoring the visitors' first goal. United had won the home game 2-1 ? Juan Mata scoring their first goal from the penalty spot ? to make it ten matches unbeaten against German teams at Old Trafford (W7 D3), since a 0-1 reverse against Bayern M?nchen in the 2000/01 UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg (1-3 aggregate).

Leipzig ? This is Leipzig's third UEFA Champions League group campaign, all in the last four seasons, and their fourth foray into European football overall.

? The 2019/20 campaign proved to be the most successful in Leipzig's brief European history, Julian Nagelsmann's side going all the way to the semi-finals. Leipzig picked up 11 points to finish first in their section ? they had come third in their two previous group stage campaigns in UEFA competition ? ahead of Lyon, Benfica and Zenit.

? Leipzig then beat 2018/19 runners-up Tottenham in their first UEFA Champions League knockout tie (1-0 a, 3-0 h) before a 2-1 defeat of Atl?tico de Madrid in their one-off quarter-final in Lisbon. Paris Saint-Germain ? who are also in Group H ? ended their hopes in the semis, running out 3-0 winners.

? Leipzig have won nine of their 17 UEFA Champions League fixtures (D3 L5).

? Third in the Bundesliga for the second season in a row in 2019/20, this is Leipzig's fourth European campaign and only their 36th match. In 2017/18 they became the first team to make their European debut in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

? Leipzig won three of their four away games in last season's UEFA Champions League, drawing the other. Before 2019/20, they had been victorious in only three of their 12 away European matches (D4 L5).

? Leipzig's only previous fixtures against a Premier League club came in last season's round of 16, Nagelsmann's side beating Tottenham 1-0 away and 3-0 at home in what was their first UEFA Champions League knockout tie.
