Pep has the same figures at City as his last year at Barca

Manchester City have nine wins in the Premier League, the same as FC Barcelona got in Pep Guardiola's last year in charge of their team. Is this the end of the City champions?

Pep Guardiola's numbers are currently similar to what he registered in his last season with Barcelona. After years of success and brilliant play not repeated, Barcelona suffered an evident and logical setback that led to them not winning La Liga or Champions League trophies, which they had won in the years before.

A look at 'ProFootballDB' shows that in the 11/12 season with Barcelona and the current 19/20 season with City there are some similarities. With Barcelona, Guardiola accumulated nine victories, four draws and one defeat. He scored 42 goals and conceded eight; now at City he has nine wins, two draws and three defeats, with 39 goals scored and 16 conceded.

While Manchester City are now eleven points behind leaders Liverpool, Barcelona were not as far behind Real Madrid. The whites were in the lead with 37 points, six more than Barca. Now the 'Reds' are 40 and the 'skyblues', 29.

However, all good things must come to an end. Is Pep's City showing signs of exhaustion? Guardiola never lasted more than four years as a coach. At Bayern, in fact, he completed three campaigns, although he won almost everything at home.

The coach has one more year of contract at the Etihad. In England there are voices that ask if he will finish it. Pep has the same figures at City as his last year at Barca, a precedent that invites to the reflection.
