100 up

Pep Guardiola will become the first Spanish coach to reach 100 Champions League matches on Wednesday evening as his Manchester City side travels to Ukraine to face Shakhtar in their final group game. Therefore, the match will see Guardiola join the other Champions League managerial 100-game group comprising Jose Mourinho, Carlo Ancelotti, Arsene Wenger and  Sir Alex Ferguson.

Guardiola's record and 'perfect' campaign

In his 99 games in charge of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City, the Catalan coach has won 61 games in the Champions League, drawing 23 and losing 15. With Barcelona he won the trophy on two occasions, in 2009 and 2011, while this season his City side has already sealed top spot in their group, gaining 15 points in five games in which they have scored 13 and conceded three. Guardiola has also overseen four matches in the Champions League play-off phase - two with Barça and two with City.
