Guardiola makes Champions League history as Man City reach semifinals

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola made Champions League history after his side held Atletico Madrid to a goalless draw at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano to advance to the semifinals.

City clinched the semifinal ticket after their 1-0 victory over Diego Simeone’s men at the Etihad Stadium last week was enough to see them through.

Guardiola has reached his ninth Champions League semifinal (four with Barcelona, three with Bayern Munich, two with City), making him the first manager to do that in the history of the competition.

The Premier League champions will be gunning for a treble this season as they take on La Liga leaders Real Madrid in the semifinals.

City will also face Liverpool in the semifinal clash in the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday, April 16, 2022.

They are also in the running to win the Premier League title this season. The Cityzens will however be wary of Liverpool, just a point away, who played out a 2-2 draw with them at the Etihad last weekend.

The match was a worthy top two clash with Guardiola hugging his Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp after the tight game.

Meanwhile, Liverpool advanced after drawing 3-3 against Benfica and will face Unai Emery’s Villarreal in the Champions League semifinal.
