• Atalanta and Paris have never played each other.
• Paris are without a win in their last eight matches against Serie A opposition (D6 L2), since a 3-1 victory against Parma in March 1996.
• The last three times Bayern and Barcelona have met in the UEFA Champions League, the winners went on to lift the trophy: 2014/15 semi-finals (Barcelona), 2012/13 semi-finals (Bayern), 2008/09 quarter-finals (Barcelona).
• Real Madrid and Juventus have met 21 times in UEFA competition, including Madrid’s wins in the UEFA Champions League finals in 1998 (1-0) and 2017 (4-1).
