Pep Guardiola has lost more matches against Jurgen Klopp than any other manager – eight – and, on average, collected only 1.13 points per game against his German adversary.
Last season, Pep’s Premier League champs were blown away in both legs of the Champions League quarter-finals, although both managers claimed wins apiece – Manchester City triumphed 5-0 in those dark pre-Virgil van Dijk days, before Liverpool inflicted City’s first defeat of the season in a 4-3 thriller at Anfield.
On Thursday night they go head-to-head in the most anticipated Premier League match since…. well, their last meeting in October – but really, this could be the most decisive top-flight game since the Reds’ Match-That-Must-Not-Be-Named against Chelsea in 2014.
For today’s quiz, however, we’re moving away from England to bring you the teams from Guardiola and Klopp’s first managerial meeting – the 2013 German Supercup Final between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. BVB ran out 4-2 winners in Guardiola’s first game bossing Bayern, though he had the last laugh with a dominant title victory.
