Atleti kick off the Champions League campaign at the Allianz Arena, where we’re to take on Bayern Munich at 9pm CET on Wednesday.
- Our club has played 45 times against German sides in UEFA competitions (21W, 7D, 17L).
- We’ve netted 60 goals and conceded 52 in the process.
- Simeone is to reach 100 European matches as our coach. He has been involved in 71 Champions League games (39W, 17D, 15L), 26 Europa League fixtures (21W, 1D, 4L) and two UEFA Super Cup matches (2W).
- Bayern Munich are the current European champions, having won last season’s edition of the tournament.
- Since the group stage format began in the 1994/95 season, the German club have only been knocked out once from their group (2002/03).
- Atleti also boast a great Champions League group stage record. We were only knocked out in 2009/10 and 2017/18, and went on to win the Europa League both times.
