Guardiola's 100 Champions League games in numbers

A 2-1 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk may not have been how Pep Guardiola envisaged his 100th Champions League match as a manager going.

Guardiola fielded a much-changed side on Wednesday, with City already guaranteed to finish top of Group F and a derby against local rivals Manchester United and Jose Mourinho set for Sunday.

Sergio Aguero's late penalty was not enough to stave of a 16th Champions League loss of the pioneering Spaniard's managerial career on a milestone night in Europe's premier competition.

Guardiola's best win percentage in the Champions League (63.9) came during his three seasons in charge of Bayern Munich, where he won 23 of his 36 outings in the competition.

However, the Spaniard was unable to replicate his two title wins with Barcelona, the Bundesliga side going out at the semi-final stage in each year of his tenure.

Guardiola's sides prove particularly formidable at home. He has overseen just four defeats on home soil – two apiece at Barca and Bayern – for a win percentage of 78.43, and remains undefeated in this competition as City boss at the Etihad Stadium.
