Guardiola: 4 out of 4 against Madrid

Roger Bogunyà

Josep Guardiola has a perfect record against Real Madrid. He is looking make it five wins out of five against the club’s biggest rival.

It is difficult to beat any team four times out of four, but against Madrid it’s an especially impressive achievement. The number of goals Guardiola’s teams have put past Madrid recently is simply staggering. Eleven for and just two against. We look back at the four clásicos Guardiola has managed to date.

One of the most glorious results in club history, as the Santiago Bernabéu, was stunned by a six-goal rout of the home side, which was hoping to make up a four-point deficit. Henry (2), Messi (2), Puyol and Piqué scored on that unforgettable night in the Spanish capital, which also as good as left the league championship decided.

Busquets was sent off with half an hour to go, but Ibrahimovic had already given his side a one-goal lead. Some desperate defending was required to hang on, but Barça managed to do it, and therefore celebrated their 110th anniversary in the best possible fashion.

Barcelona were on course for their second league title in a row, and this also meant that for the first time ever, they had won four league matches in a row against the old enemy.

Fours out of four
Madrid is not the only team that Josep Guardiola has a one hundred percent record against. Three other top flight teams have suffered the same way. Sporting Gijon have lost all five meetings, including one earlier this season. Malaga have lost all four, and Zaragoza all three. Like Madrid, none of these clubs have even been able to snatch a point off Guardiola’s all-conquering team.

Sevilla have also been beaten in all five league matches since Guardiola took over the club. But the Andalusians can take solace from the fact that they have won matches against FCB in both the Copa del Rey and the Spanish Super Cup.
