The knockout rounds of the 2021/22 Champions League got underway on the week commencing the 14th of February.
Manchester City were in the Round of 16 after topping their group.
The Citizens were drawn in Group A along with PSG, RB Leipzig and Club Brugge.
Despite having a fairly tough group, Manchester City were able to secure top spot after garnering 12 points from six outings.
And in the Round of 16, Pep Guardiola and co. were handed, on paper, a fairly easy tie as the Sky Blues look to reach the Champions League final for the second season in a row.
How many Champions Leagues has Pep Guardiola won?
Manchester City have never won the Champions League in their storied history, whilst Pep Guardiola himself has not clinched the trophy for many years now.
The Spaniard is widely regarded as one of the best managers in the 21st century and has helped Man City dominate England like no team before.
Under Pep, Manchester City have earned the most points in a single Premier League season (100), and are the only male English side to clinch the domestic treble.
However, Guardiola has come up short in Europe for many years now. Despite managing Bayern Munich and Manchester City in recent times, Guardiola’s last Champions League triumph came all the way back in the 2010/11 season when Barcelona bested Manchester United 3-1.
Guardiola’s only previous CL trophy came in 2008/09 when Barca beat Manchester United 2-0.
Which manager has won the most Champions Leagues/European Cups?
But whilst two may not seem like a lot given the side’s Guardiola has managed throughout his career, only three managers in history have won more than two Champions Leagues/European Cups.
These men are Bob Paisley, Carlo Ancelotti and Zinedine Zidane, all of which have won three.
