Barça's 3-4-3 is far too risky for major matches >> Read My Mind


Guardiola: 'We played a good away game, and now to come here and generate so many chances against such a big team, with such history and traditio. It gives us pride. It’s an honour to beat Milan at the San Siro'

Guardiola: 'We played a good away game, and now to come here and generate so many chances against such a big team, with such history and traditio. It gives us pride. It’s an honour to beat Milan at the San Siro'

Guardiola, on becoming the FC Barcelona manager with the most wins in the Champions League (27): 'These stats are the consequence of having won two European titles. We have been lucky enough to win 12 of 15 titles. With different players I wouldn’t have been able to do it. If they had another manager, perhaps they would have done it anyway. I only try to get them to run

Guardiola: 'We don’t play to demonstrate our authority to other teams or to correct people's opinions about us. It’s about playing the game and trying to be better than your opponent. The most important thing is that the team is in the round of 16 and that we get to play the return leg at home'

Guardiola: 'Because of our opponent I decided to play with three defenders, fast players, players with legs'

- We are now nearly 3 months into the season: The 3-4-3 only works well when we play at home against ultra-defensive minor teams with doubtful attacking power.

On a similar note, I still don't understand why Pique sat on the bench for the whole match. Playing against Ibrahimovic, the Catalan Giant would have been a better choice to challenge Zlatan for those important high balls. I just don't get it.

Having said that, the result speaks for itself: Another prestigious win under Guardiola's management. And counting. This team never gives up, always raising to whatever the next challenge may be.
