Pep Guardiola owns the Bernabeu
The crowd at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu don’t like seeing Pep Guardiola step out into the opposition dugout.
The Manchester City boss inflicted yet another defeat on Real Madrid on their own turf on Wednesday in the Champions League.
On his first visit to the Bernabeu as a coach, Guardiola led Barcelona to a 6-2 victory in the 2008/09 season.
The following campaign, the Catalans came away with another three points after a 2-0 win before Jose Mourinho‘s Los Blancos held them to a 1-1 drew in 2010/11.
It was a different story in the Champions League that year, as Lionel Messi‘s exhibition saw Barcelona take a 2-0 lead back to the Camp Nou for the second leg of their semi-final.
In Guardiola‘s final season in charge of the Blaugrana, they drew 2-2 in the Supercopa de Espana, won 3-1 in LaLiga Santander and won 2-1 in the Copa del Rey at the Bernabeu.
The Catalan coach’s first defeat at the Bernabeu came with Bayern Munich when they visited in the 2013/14 Champions League semi-finals as Real Madrid won the first leg 1-0.
Six years later, Guardiola got his revenge, this time in charge of a Manchester City side who have been banned from European competition for two years.
