UEFA statement: What will happen if Manchester clubs are drawn to play at home on the same week

UEFA have released a statement to explain today quarter-finals, including what needs to happen if both Manchester clubs are drawn to play at home on the same week.

UEFA statement:

How will the draws work?
There is no seeding or country protection, with any restrictions to be announced ahead of the draw. The semi-final draw will follow the quarter-final draw, meaning teams will know their potential paths to the final.

Manchester City and Manchester United will not be able to play at home on the same night, nor on consecutive nights, following a decision made by the relevant local authorities. Therefore, should both clubs be drawn at home in the same week, 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. Any potential reversal for the semi-finals, for the same reason, would be confirmed after the quarter-finals,” concluded the statement.

List of quarter-finalists:

  • Manchester City (England)
  • Juventus (Italy)
  • Manchester United (England)
  • Tottenham (England)
  • Barcelona (Spain)
  • Porto (Portugal)
  • Ajax (Netherlands)
