Conte’s rotten win rate, Mane in need of a goal – Champions League in Opta numbers

London, December 1: Matchday five of the Champions League could mean qualification for the last 16 for some – and spell trouble for others. Bayern Munich and Manchester City are already through, but their respective opponents, Atletico Madrid and Porto, could do with positive results. Real Madrid recorded a valuable win at Inter last time out but must do better against Shakhtar Donetsk than they did on matchday one, while the Nerazzurri themselves know nothing but a victory at Borussia Monchengladbach will do. Liverpool need just a point at home to Ajax to progress, but with injury problems mounting and a 2-0 home loss to Atalanta last week, their progress no longer looks to be such plain sailing.
