Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola aims for his first victory in the semi-final match against Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti in the UEFA Champions League (UCL).
On the 18th (Korean time) at 4 am at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England, Manchester City and Real Madrid will play the second leg of the 2022-2023 UCL semifinals. The result of the first leg was a 1-1 draw. The winning team from the second leg advances to the final to face Inter Milan.
Guardiola and Ancelotti are facing each other for the third time in the UCL semi-finals. The first match was in the 2013-2014 season. At the time, Guardiola was managing Bayern Munich, and Ancelotti was carrying out his first real managerial job. The result was a complete victory for Ancelotti. Real won the first leg 1-0 at home, followed by a 4-0 away victory in the second leg.
Afterwards, the two coaches, who had faced each other in the English Premier League (EPL), met again at UCL after Ancelotti moved to Real. They faced each other in the UCL semifinals last season. Again, the winner was Ancelotti. Ancelotti’s Real lost the first leg away 3-4, but won the second leg home game 3-1 after extra time, beating Guardiola’s Man City 6-5 on aggregate.
After suffering two defeats, Guardiola took a chance on revenge in the third UCL semi-final encounter. In the first game away from Real Madrid on the 10th, Vinicius Junior was allowed an opening goal, but Kevin Debrawiner’s goal balanced it and avoided defeat. Now prepare for the completion of revenge at home. Man City has been very strong in recent UCL home matches. They are undefeated in their last 25 UCL home matches, including a 3-0 win over Bayern in the quarterfinals held last month. Draws are rarely allowed. They have a record of 23 wins and 2 draws.
Director Ancelotti puts his hopes on ‘UCL DNA’. 카지노사이트Coach Ancelotti and Real are the best coaches and teams in the competition. Ancelotti, who has won four championships in his career, is the most successful UCL coach ever. In particular, there is a bar that has lifted the championship trophy in both previous seasons, winning in the semifinals against Guardiola. Real Madrid is also the team with the most UCL titles, winning 14 times in Europe. The recent momentum is also good. They reached the top of the UCL in five of the previous ten seasons, and advanced to the semifinals eight times.
