The home leg of Manchester United’ s Champions League quarter- final tie could be reversed in the event of a clash with that involving Manchester City , depending on the outcome of Friday’ s draw , UEFA said on Thursday .

The two Manchester clubs are through to the last eight alongside two other Premier League sides , Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool .

Unlike in previous rounds , there is no longer any country protection in the draw , meaning teams from the same domestic league can now face one another. That throws open the possibility of a Manchester derby in the quarter- finals.

However , if they do not face each other , United will have to reverse their fixture if they are drawn at home in the same week as City .

“ Following a decision made by the relevant local authorities , Manchester City and Manchester United cannot play at home on the same night , nor on consecutive nights , ” said UEFA .

“ Should both clubs be drawn within the same sequence ( home or away) , the team having finished lower in the domestic league the previous season – - in this case Manchester United — will be reversed in accordance with the UEFA Club Competitions Committee principles . ”

The semi - final draw will also take place on Friday, and UEFA added : “ The calendar for the semi- finals will be communicated to all parties on April 18 , 2019 , following the return legs of the quarter- finals . ”

Juventus , Barcelona , Porto and Ajax complete the Champions League quarter- final line - up .
