Why City's loss vs Spurs may mean trouble for Pep

Manchester City urged to turn history around after 1-0 loss vs Tottenham

April 9, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Once again, a team coached by Pep Guardiola will face elimination right in the eye.

Manchester City is against the wall once again. Despite the heavy investment made on boosting the squad, Pep Guardiola will enter the return leg of a UEFA Champions League tie trailing, just like he did last year against Liverpool or two years ago against Monaco.

Added to that, the team's lack of accuracy in front of goal puts his team in even more danger of being eliminated, since an away goal by Tottenham would force the Citizens to score three times. While this may not seem as a massive hurdle, history shows us that Pep's struggles away from home in UEFA CL games are nothing new.

But if you thought Manchester City still has a good chance of making it to the semis with Guardiola as boss, here are some numbers that will make you think twice, courtesy of stats' specialist Mister Chip. "Stat Alert: Guardiola has been on the losing side of a UEFA Champions League tie eight times when playing away from home, and he only managed to turn TWO of them around: against Arsenal in 2011 (2-1 away and 3-1 at home) and facing Porto in 2015 (3-1 away and 6-1 at home).

To make matters worse, Tottenham's record when winning the first leg is not bad at all. In fact, history seems to be on Spurs' side this time.

So, will the Citizens bounce back? Don't miss the second leg of this exciting UCL tie next week!
