The Spaniard built the Nou Camp team into a formidable side feared throughout world football with a style of play almost impossible to play against.

Guardiola has also been credited with the development of Lionel Messi, widely regarded as the world’s best player, who blossomed under his tutelage and guidance.

This isn’t the first time the two sides have faced each other at this stage of the tournament though, as Pep Guardiola was on the wrong end of a 7-0 aggregate thrashing when managing Barcelona in 2013. The same year, Bayern went on to win the trophy following a 2-1 win in the final over Borussia Dortmund at Wembley, following a dramatic late winner from Arjen Robben.
