UEFA has confirmed that Manchester United ’s Champions League quarter - final tie could be reversed if they are drawn at home in the same match week as Manchester City . Both Manchester clubs progressed to the last eight of the competition , but UEFA regulations do not allow two teams in the same city to play on the same day , nor on consecutive nights . If both clubs are drawn in the same home and away sequence in Friday’ s draw , it will be United ’s fixture that will be changed because they finished behind champions City in their domestic competition last season . “ Following a decision made by relevant local authorities , Manchester City and Manchester United cannot play at home on the same night , nor on consecutive nights, ” UEFA said . “ 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 United – will be reversed in accordance with the UEFA Club Competitions Committee principles .

“ In accordance with paragraph 21 . 01 (b ) of the UEFA Champions League regulations , the UEFA administration will determine which matches will be played on Tuesday , which matches on Wednesday . ” There could also be another fixture reversal for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’ s team if both United and City progress through to the semi- final stage of the competition . The two Manchester clubs were also hit by the regulation in 2011 / 12 , when both were drawn at home in the second leg of their round - of- 32 Europa League ties . However , rather than flipping a fixture, UEFA moved City ’s game at home to Porto to the Wednesday while United faced Ajax the following night .
