Quiz! Can you name all 36 teams to have beaten Pep Guardiola as manager?

Pep Guardiola

Pep Guardiola’s first month in management didn’t get off to a flying start. In August 2008, the new Barcelona manager suffered two defeats in competitive matches. 

In the 11 years since, Pep has been on the wrong side of a scoreline 62 more times – which isn’t too bad, really.

Sometimes, defeats comes in clusters (December last year was a difficult month), and some months keep cropping up (April is a good month to face Pep), but in all only 36 sides have got the better of him. So while there is a maximum score of 64, a lot of the answers will come up more than once.

This list covers his entire senior managerial career – Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City – and includes league, cups and supercups (they take them a bit more seriously on the continent).

We’re giving you 10 minutes to name as many as you can, and we’re not really expecting anyone to get full marks – so let us know how many you manage at @FourFourTwo (opens in new tab) (just don’t tell us who you missed).
