UEFA.com correspondent's opinion
When I interviewed Ronald Koeman about his appointment, he talked about a new system and revamping that supports existing skills in this playgroup, as the team needs to work for each other.
Check all three boxes after the group shows: not only five wins, but also confidence, hard work, pressure, fluidity of performance and, frankly, excellence to Dynamo Kyiv at Marc-André ter Stegen' when things went against them. .

what we learned
Domestically, Koeman''s first campaign in office has had its ups and downs, but the UEFA Champions League has been a haven for the Dutchman, who won their first five games in the competition, including an impressive 2-0 win at Juventus'. They remain fragile at the rear, however, and the injured Gerard Piqué misses badly – no more than Matchday 6' lost to Juve, which saw them take a head-to-head second in Group G'.
• Koeman became the fifth coach to lead at least six teams in the UEFA Champions League, after Carlo Ancelotti (eight), Claudio Ranieri, José Mourinho and Rafael Benítez (six).
• Barcelona topped their group for 13 consecutive seasons before being overhauled this time by Juve.
• Barcelona became the first team to have two strikers aged 17 or younger in a UEFA Champions League match against Ansu Fati and Pedri' in the group opening against Ferencváros'.
