Spanish Cup Final: Guardiola vs Mourinho

Reached the end of the line, Pep Guardiola never failed as coach. In his record he includes six victories in as many finals, but in the next, in the Spanish Cup (Copa del Rey) for the first time is faced with Jose Mourinho who has a great record; seventeen finals, twelve victories.

Spanish Cup shows the first Guardiola vs Mourinho final, two of the best strategists in European football. Guardiola won every final he contested in two years always as Barcelona coach. The Spanish Cup and the Champions League in two weeks, in May 2009, opened the spotless record of the current coach of the Catalan side.

Mourinho's curriculum is more extensive than Guardiola's. The Portuguese coach lost his last final in August 2009 in the Italian Super Cup in Beijing between his team, Inter Milan, and Lazio. The Portuguese lived seventeen finals with three different teams (Porto, Chelsea and Inter Milan). In Oporto, lost two, against Benfica (Portuguese Cup) and Milan (European Super Cup). With Chelsea suffered two defeats; Liverpool and Manchester United (both in English Super Cup). And a final lost with Inter Milan against Lazio (Italian Super Cup).

With Real Madrid he will play his eighteenth final eight years since he conquered his first final on the bench as coach. On May 21, 2003, Porto beat Celtic Glasgow in the UEFA Cup final (3-2).
