During one of the most intense games of the Premier League title race comes Liverpool and Barcelona battling for a place in the semis. Throughout the match, Manchester City’s famed manager Pep Guardiola watched Liverpool lose big time to Barcelona from the stands, with a 3-0 win for the Spanish club’s side.
In one of the most fiercely contested title races of all time, the former manager of Liverpool squeamishly watch his former team surrender to Ernesto Valverde’s upper right command on his team. In order to even pull off a comeback, Jurgen Klopp’s men will have to rally next week.
Perhaps the only small victory Guardiola witnessed was Lionel Messi’s stunning move that had the Reds short for a moment. The upcoming match between Manchester City and Liverpool has the Reds traveling to Newcastle on Saturday to go head to head against Guardiola’s team.
City is hailed as one of the most prolific in English football, hosting the most impressive teams over the years. However, despite the consistent performance, Guardiola has his reservations on facing a legend like Lionel Messi, especially with his superb execution in Wednesday night’s match against Liverpool.
