Manchester City: Another humiliating failure for Pepo Guardiola …

Follow-up to this announcement Many have imagined watching the crazy end of the Citizens and Liverpool season in the 89th second of this Champions League semi-final between Real Madrid and Manchester City. The two most impressive teams of the moment went to the anthological duel in the Premier League (83 points for the City and 82 for the Reds 4 days after the end), as well as for the European Cup. One minute after the end of regular time, Pepo Guardiola’s team took the lead 5: 3 against Merengues and made it to the second final of the Champions League, where they will face Liverpool at the Stade de France. But when you play a European qualifier in Spain, you should never be sure of anything, even in the 89th minute. PSG can confirm this. And so it happened to the Citizens. Thanks to two Rodrygo goals, the match turned unrealistic in two minutes. Real caught up with Berniméu’s victorious Karim Benzema penalty. Delirium in Madrid, and almost all the cameras were aimed at one person: Pep Guardiola. KO, standing under Rodrygo’s back, ended the evening in Catalonia, helpless against the Madrid uprising. At the end of the match, he managed to find strength to get up, go to greet the City fans and comfort his players. Lots of removals against weaker players However, this new failure in the Champions League has hurt a lot. Destroyed by the Spanish and English press, it was the famous Pep Guardiola who introduced himself to the media. Clearly, when it comes to analyzing their players ’matches, the Spaniard has left doubts about his future. Information or a simple reaction to frustration with removal? Future will tell. However, it is clear that the balance of the former midfielder with Skyblues in the European Cup does not depend on the investment of its bosses (more than a billion euros). Since arriving in England in 2016, Guardiola has known only failures in the continent’s most prestigious competitions. Especially against teams that are far less high level than his club. 2017 In the eighth final, AS Monaco broke their teeth three times in the quarter-finals of the upcoming French champion Kylian Mbappé (5: 3, 1: 3): Liverpool smashed (0: 3). , 1: 2) in 2018, brutally eliminated before Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham (0-1, 4-3) in 2019. and surprised Rudi Garcia OL (1-3) during 2020. The final four in Lisbon. Finally, Chelsea’s Mancunian dreams were shattered last year in the final in Porto (0-1). Cherry on the Cake – Pep Guardiola became the coach eliminated most of the time in the Champions League semi-finals last night with José Mourinho. Six defeats, two against FC Barcelona, ​​three against Bayern Munich and one against Manchester City. However, when it comes to statistics, The Independent points out that out of eleven Guardiola removals in the Champions League since 2010, 8 were related to matches in which his teams missed at least two goals in a short period of time (2 in 13 minutes in 2010, 3). 2014 – 18, 2015 – 3 – 17, 2017 – 2 – 8, 2018 – 3 – 19, 2019 – 2 – 3, 2020 – 2 – 8, 2022 – 3 – 6). Fear of the White Season On paper, the Spanish balance already speaks enough. But yesterday, many blamed City’s performance. True, Guardiola’s pupils weren’t as dominant as in the first round, but they controlled the game. We remind you that Madrid did not make any of the five attempts at the goal in the first half. However, the effectiveness of the Citizens’ attack is once again highlighted. Already in the first match, City had to score more than four goals and not finish 4: 3. And how about not thinking about the two huge odds yesterday (and especially the incredible bailout of Ferland Mendy on his line) signed by Jack Grealish just before Rodryg’s first goal (87th, 88th)? At a time when Erling Haaland is being announced insisting on Etihad next season, the City can assume the meeting will end with a real 9, which Citizens have been missing since Sergio Agüero’s departure. In short, a new frustration that City will no doubt try to forget with millions through the next transition window. Meanwhile, the English media are now wondering whether this new fiasco of the European Guard will have consequences for the fight for the title. Will Citizens lose everything by May 22? We remind you that apart from the first season of Etihad (2016-2017), Pep Guardiola has never been without a trophy since training for the City … 6 – Pep Guardiola was eliminated 6 times in the Champions League semi-finals. (2010 and 2012 with Barcelona, ​​2014, 2015 and 2016 with Bayern, 2022 with Manchester City), coach’s highest score with José Mourinho. Earth quake. #RMAMCI— OptaJean (@OptaJean) 2022 May 4
