The home of Manchester United’ s Champions

League quarterfinal tie could be reversed in

the event of a clash with that involving

Manchester City , depending on the outcome of

today ’ s draw , Uefa said yesterday , reports

the 42 . ie .

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 semifinal draw will also take place today ,

and Uefa added : “ The calendar for the

semifinals 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 quarterfinal line- up .
