Pep Guardiola to reach 150 games
The FC Barcelona manager, Pep Guardiola, will take on his 150th game at San Mamés stadium in the Copa del Rey. The Catalan manager will become one of the six managers to have been on the bench the most times at the club.
Barcelona (FCB).- The Catalan manager will equalise the record of the legendary 1950s\u2019 boss Fernando Daucik, and will become one of the six managers to have been on the bench the most times at the club.
If we talk about the Guardiola era, we talk about success- he has rarely had to swallow the bitter pill of defeat. He has won 109 games, drawn 27, lost just 13 times, and scooped eight titles in just a year and a half. From his opener against Wisla right through to last Sunday\u2019s win against Llevant, it has been a triumphant period from beginning to end.
Barça remain unbeaten in finals
Barça have yet to know what it is like to lose a major final without Guardiola in the hotseat. The first two were in the 2008/09 season, when the Copa del Rey was won at the Mestalla stadium in Valencia and the Champions League in Rome.
Last season, Barça added the Spanish and European Super Cups plus the Clubs World Cup to their list 5 out of 5 against Madrid Barça under Guardiola also have an impeccable record against the old enemy.
In five wins out of five, they have scored 16 goals and conceded just 2. These have included the famous 5-0 win at the Camp Nou and the now legendary 6-2 at the Bernabeu two seasons ago.
