first_imgUntil 2017, I only knew the final victory or the defeat in the semifinals. In this round he fell on 09/10 against Inter de Jose Mourinho and on 11/12 against Chelsea, both, in the end, champions. With Bayern, three LaLiga teams would prevent him from reaching the final. In the first season, he eliminated Real Madrid, in the second, Barcelona and in the third, Atlético de Madrid. Of these three, only the rojiblancos would not rise with the Orejona in the edition in which they managed to eliminate the group trained by Pep in the Champions League.The City has had worse luck. The first year, Mbappé and his Monaco took them by surprise in the second round and the next two editions would be done in the quarterfinals by two of their ‘neighbors’: Liverpool (runner-up 17/18) and Tottenham (runner-up 18/19).This season, the victory against Real Madrid at the Bernabéu leaves him with a good advantage to move to the quarterfinals but, Real Madrid, the last great dominator of this competition, promises to battle in the Etihad. The victory of Manchester City in Santiago Bernabéu by 1-2 has added another achievement to Pep Guardiola’s extensive curriculum. The Catalan coach won his 28th victory in the KO rounds in the Champions League on Wednesday night at the Bernabéu, thus exceeding the qualifying records in this continental competition of Carlo Ancelotti, Jose Mourinho and Sir Alex Ferguson according to data offered by Opta. In his career in the Champions League, Pep Guardiola has 121 games with a record of 74 wins, 26 draws and just 21 losses. That is, in up to 100 games, the team that trained Santpedor came out with something positive in the most prestigious club competition in the world.Since his debut on September 16, 2008 with a 3-1 victory against Sporting Portugal, Pep has managed to raise two Champions, both with Barcelona. That same season (08/09) he defeated Manchester United by Cristiano Ronaldo in Rome and in 2011, he beat the red devils again in the Wembley final, and with the Portuguese in the ranks of Real Madrid.last_img
