Man City to face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League quarter-finals

First leg takes place April 6 from the Etihad

Manchester City will face another German side in the next round of the Champions League after drawing Borussia Dortmund on Friday.

The Sky Blues booked their place in the last eight for a fourth consecutive season by beating Borussia Monchengladbach 4-0 on aggregate in the previous round.

Dortmund squeaked by Sevilla 5-4 on aggregate in their round of 16 tie.

These sides have minimal history between them, with only two previous meetings in the 2012 Champions League group stage.

Robert Mancini was in charge of the Citizens at that time while Jurgen Klopp managed Dortmund.

The first match ended 0-0 at the Etihad, while Dortmund beat City 1-0 in the return match.

Ilkay Gundogan is the only player still around from those days for either side, but he was with Dortmund at the time.

Should Pep Guardiola’s side progress from this tie, they would face PSG and Bayern Munich in the semis.

The first leg goes Tuesday, April 6, from the Etihad at 8 pm.

The return leg will happen Wednesday, April 14, from Signal Iduna Park also at 8 pm. (JSL).
