2 – times Guardiola has won the tournament, with Barcelona in 2009 and 2011.

5 – he has reached five other semi-finals, two with Barca and three in as many seasons with Bayern Munich.

1 – only once before has Guardiola’s run been ended by English opposition, when Chelsea defeated Barca in the 2012 semi-final.

104 – games managed in the tournament, excluding qualifying rounds, placing him fifth on the all-time list. Only Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger, Carlo Ancelotti and Jose Mourinho have managed more Champions League games.
