Despite winning the Champions League twice with Barcelona, Pep Guardiola has endured a lot of heartaches in Champions League semi-final matches.
The Spaniard spent four seasons at Barca, and his side lost to Inter Milan in the semis of the 2009-10 season (3-2 aggregate).
In 2011-12, Barca lost to eventual winners Chelsea in the semis (3-2 aggregate)
In his three seasons at Bayern, Pep saw his side reach the semis on all three occasions.
In 2013-14, Bayern were thrashed 5-0 by Real Madrid (aggregate). In 2014-15, they were beaten by Barcelona 5-3. In 2015-16, they lost on away goals against Atletico Madrid (2-2)
However, with Manchester City, Guardiola is on the verge of reaching the first ever Uefa Champions League final with the English club-his first in 10 years.
With a 2-1 win in Paris, City appears to be in a better position compared to their French opposition.
The winner of tonight’s tie will be up against either Chelsea or Real Madrid in the final.
