Champions League: Two good friends square off

Former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola and his successor Luis Enrique will meet in opposite dugouts in the semi-finals of the Champions League Wednesday morning (May 6, Singapore time).

Guardiola, now coach of Bayern Munich, will need to outwit his close friend and former team-mate at Barca in the first leg at the Nou Camp.

They spent a total of 20 years playing for Barça, with both playing in the same team from from 1996 to 2001.

Both of them managed the reserve team before going on to coach the first team. 

From 2009 to 2011, Guardiola was in charge of the first team while Enrique handled the reserves. 

Watch them in action for Barcelona here.
