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’s 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.

“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,” UEFA said in a statement on Thursday.
