In addition to winning countless championship trophies, Guardiola is still subtly influencing the technical and tactical trends of world football. And Simeone is not showing weakness. The Argentine coach has been doing it for 11 years since he took up the coach of the Sheet Legion in 2011, and he has become the godfather of Atletico Madrid. In the eleven years at Atletico Madrid, Simeone not only injected the team with the spirit and will of the iron-blooded defense, but also made a lot of achievements for the team.

Guardiola is an idealist, and his pass-and-control tactics make the game quite delicate and exciting, while Simeone is a pragmatist, and the sheets often aim for small wins . This time the two fought again, and it was also a battle of revenge for Guardiola.
