Marcel Sabitzer has scored or assisted 6 goals in the Champions League this season, more than any other Dortmund player. One goal & two assists tonight.

This was just the second time Atlético de Madrid have conceded 4+ goals in a UEFA Champions League knockout stage game, after the 2014 final (1-4 v Real Madrid). Their 13 goals conceded in this season’s competition is their most in a single UEFA Champions League campaign.

Marcel Sabitzer scored his first UEFA Champions League goal in 29 appearances, since netting twice against Tottenham with RB Leipzig in March 2020. He’s also the first Borussia Dortmund player to provide two assists in a knockout stage game in the competition since Andreas Möller in the 1997 final.

Atlético Madrid have been eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in their last three appearances in this round (2020, 2022 and 2024), having reached the semi-finals in three of their previous four (2014, 2016 and 2017).

Atlético Madrid have benefited from three opposition own goals in the Champions League 2023/24; only Barcelona (5 in 2017-18) and Inter (4 in 2002-03) have benefited from more in a single campaign in the competition.

Atlético Madrid conceded five shots on target in the first half of a Champions League knockout stage match for the first time since May 2017 against Real Madrid in the semi-finals (five as well).

Marcel Sabitzer is the first player to provide 4+ assists in a single Champions League campaign for Dortmund since Ousmane Dembélé in 2016/17 (6).
