The Spanish tactician takes his Bayern Munich side to the Emirates Stadium for their Champions League Round of 16 first leg clash and is looking to beat Arsene Wenger's team in north London after two failed attempts with Barcelona.
Gaurdiola's side lost 2-1 in the Round of 16 in the 2010/11 season and drew 2-2 in the quarter-finals the campaign prior and now he wants to put an unwanted personal record right.
"It's my third time as a trainer here to play against Arsenal. I've never won here," he said.
"I learnt that you can't dominate 90 minutes against Arsenal. It's impossible.
"You can play good, you can dominate during half-time, 30 minutes, 75 minutes, but complete 90 minutes it's impossible. Always you have a problem.
"We'll try to make a good game, as best as possible; don't think too much about the second game, concentrate on what we have to do tomorrow. And I hope it goes well.
