GUARDIOLA SAYS TUCHEL ‘GAVE HIM THE TACTICS’ FOR THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL AHEAD OF THE MAN CITY V CHELSEA CLASH


Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel will clash in the Champions League final after both teams defeated PSG and Real Madrid.



However, the pair had a dress rehearsal when Manchester City and Chelsea met in the Premier League.


Guardiola and Tuchel were seen talking before the game. When asked about the conversation, the Spaniard joked that the German coach "gave me the tactics for the Champions League final."

        If that is the case, Guardiola will be hoping for a different result from the one that saw the Blues come away with all three points after a 2-1 victory at the Etihad.



        It will only frighten City's coaching and playing staff as they aim for their first-ever European title at the end of May.


        Guardiola thought City was still playing well and blew a chance to take a commanding lead after Aguero's comical penalty miss.

        Sporting stadiums in the United Kingdom are also subject to stringent regulations as a consequence of the Coronavirus Pandemic, as government social distancing rules forbid fans from entering venues, resulting in games being played behind closed doors.



        “It was a close game, but we played very well overall,” Guardiola said. “With the penalty, we blew our opportunity in the final minute of the first half. [Chelsea] are a top team, and we were outplaying them. We were in a decent place, but they scored.”

        With a victory over Newcastle next Friday, City will clinch the league title. Chelsea, on the other hand, has established a strong place in the race for Champions League qualification.
