Champions League play-offs: The deciders
- Celtic’s first-leg victory was the biggest margin of victory for any home team in a UEFA Champions League play-off and equalled the overall record for the round.
- Hapoel are hoping to become the fourth different Israeli club to qualify for the group stage; Slovenia’s Maribor made it in 1999/2000 and 2014/15.
- Group debut-chasing Nice, who were missing Mario Balotelli and Wesley Sneijder in Naples, finished the first leg down to nine men with red cards for now suspended Vincent Koziello and Alessane Plea.
- Olympiacos, chasing an 18th group appearance, came from behind in the first leg to win with a Alaixys Romao goal deep in added time against a side hoping to make the competition proper for the first time.
- After a home loss, the Turkish competition debutants will need to produce their first European away win at the fifth attempt.
- A last-gasp own goal in the first leg was a huge blow to Young Boys’ hopes of making a group stage debut as CSKA chase that honour for the fifth year running.
- FCSB are unbeaten in four European home games, though without a clean sheet, while Sporting have lost four away UEFA fixtures in a row.
- Qarabağ are one step away from becoming Azerbaijan’s first UEFA Champions League group representatives, a feat already achieved by 32 of the 55 member nations.
- Having already beaten the debutants last week, Liverpool are unbeaten in their 14 home competitive games against German opposition and would be England’s fifth group representatives, with the Premier League top four joined by UEFA Europa League winners Manchester United.
- Slavia last reached the group stage exactly a decade ago while APOEL are chasing a fourth appearance.
