On Tuesday, Manchester City scored their 100th goal of the 2020-21 season, extending Pep Guardiola’s record of his top-flight teams scoring a century of goals in every season of his coaching career.

City took a 1-0 lead in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash against Borussia Monchengladbach after Kevin De Bruyne thundered home a venomous left-footed effort that sailed over Yann Sommer’s crossbar.

Ilkay Gundogan doubled City’s lead on the night after receiving a pass from Phil Foden, putting the team up 4-0 on aggregate.

Guardiola has seen his team cross three figures with plenty of time remaining in the season, much as he did in his four seasons at Barcelona, three seasons at Bayern Munich, and four prior years at the Etihad Stadium.

City still has a long way to go if they want to beat their previous best under Catalan, which was 169 goals in the 2018-19 domestic treble-winning season.

Guardiola’s most fruitful season came in 2011-12 when a Lionel Messi-inspired Barcelona netted an incredible 190 goals while finishing second in LaLiga behind Real Madrid.

For City, a century is also nothing new.

The Premier League champions have already scored 100 goals in each of the last eight seasons, with only Manchester United have done so in each of the final nine years of Alex Ferguson’s reign.

Only Manchester United has a longer streak of consecutive 100+ seasons for English top-flight clubs, having done so in each of Alex Ferguson’s final nine years in charge.
