Pep Guardiola is the most successful coach of FC Barcelona with a total of 14 titles. Two triumphs in the Champions League (2009 and 2011). However, since the Spaniard in 2012 from his homeland who set out to win with any other team in the Premier class, the failure of the now 48-Year-old. Both with Bayern Munich as well as with Manchester City Guardiola has never reached more the final (see Video above). In addition, he has, since 2011, not a CL away match in the quarter-and semi - finals win.
And 2019, the Citizens seem to be already braked. In the quarter-final first leg in the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium went off of it a week ago, a 0:1 defeat. Now City must win the return game at least 2:0 or extension or penalty shoot-out save to be among the final Four.
"We have to score goals," said Pep Guardiola ahead of the return game against Tottenham. (Video: tele-club)
Aguero questionable, Kane is missing, definitely
This seems to be a thing of the impossibility, when you know that ManCity will score regularly more than two goals per game. So shot the Citizens in the CL quarter-finals against Schalke, not less than ten hits in two games (in Gelsenkirchen the game 3:2 it ended, at home in the Etihad stadium, 7:0!). On Sunday, a 3:1-victory against Crystal Palace. National Manchester City has collected in past titles, but in the top floor of the European club football, there are problems.
"We know what we have to do: goals to shoot for," said Guardiola ahead of the return game. Best goalscorer in the Team, Sergio Agüero, with competition cross-29 goals, followed by Raheem Sterling (21) and Gabriel Jesus (19). Overall, ManCity scored in the season 2018/19 143 goals in 54 games, an average of 2.6 goals per game.
Whether Aguero can play on Wednesday against Tottenham, is still to be determined, the 30-year-old Argentinian is suffering from a thigh injury. Definitely will Tottenham fail-Star Harry Kane, who was injured in the first leg hard by the ankle and needed to be replaced had to be.
