Spanish coach Pep Guardiola will lead his 300th match with Manchester City, against his guest, the German team Leipzig, scheduled for nine in the evening, Wednesday, at the “Al Ittihad” stadium in the first round of the first group of the Champions League.
Guardiola took charge of Manchester City in 299 games before tonight’s match, winning 218 games, drawing 36 and losing 45 games.
Pep Guardiola took over the technical leadership of the Manchester City team in 2016, succeeding Manuel Pellegrini, and succeeded in obtaining more local titles, most notably 3 titles from the English Premier League seasons 2018, 2019 and 2021, but he could not climb to the podium of the Cup with ears.
The formation witnessed the presence of the English star Jack Geralich, who will play his first European match with Manchester City in the Champions League.
The Manchester City lineup was as follows:
Ederson, Cancelo, Diaz, Aki, Zinchenko, Rodrygo, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Grealish, Torres, Mahrez.
The Manchester City team is competing in Group A of the Champions League, with Manchester City, Leipzig and Club Brugge.
Manchester City is crawling again around achieving the dream of the Champions League, a title lost inside the coffers of the Citizens.
Manchester City qualified for the Champions League final last season 2020-2021, but Chelsea deprived it of the continental title, after winning it with a clean goal, to crown the latter champion of the Champions League.
Manchester City (the title holder), started the new season of the English Premier League, with 3 victories and a loss, to sit in fifth place with 9 points.
