Speaking ahead of Friday’s meeting with the South American champions in Saudi Arabia, Guardiola said: “The players know how important it is for the club,”

“To be in this final, you have to do incredible things like win the Champions League. This may be the only time we play this in our lifetime.”

“We are there. We will try to win a title we don’t have and finish the circle.”

Success on Friday will be Guardiola’s fourth in the competition, having won it on two occassions at Barcelona and once during his three-year tenure at Bayern Munich.
