Manchester City players celebrate after they demolished Germany's Schalke 7-0 on 12 March 2019

The Reds return to EPL action after clinching a berth in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final with a decisive 3-1 victory over Bayern Munich earlier this week, which also extends the club's unbeaten streak to 11 matches across all competitions going into Sunday's game at Craven Cottage.

United finished as runners up in the Premier League in 2017-2018, 19 points behind champions City.

Below we take a look at how each of the aforementioned quadruple have fared at the quarter-final stage in the Champions League era (1992/93 onwards).

With City and United not allowed to play their home leg in the same week, United will entertain the leaders of La Liga at Old Trafford on April 9 or 10, with the return a week later.

The final teams drawn were Tottenham Hostpur and Manchester City.

Yes, the two legs against Barcelona are going to be hard - no less because the first will be played at Old Trafford and the second in front of the Camp Nou faithful.

Hopefully, we don't go 2-0 down in the first leg at home as we did against PSG.

United's two-legged affair against Barcelona will be a rematch of both the 2009 and 2011 finals, which saw Sir Alex Ferguson's men defeated by Pep Guardiola's brilliant Catalan outfit on both ocassions.

The winners of FC Barcelona vs Manchester United will face the victor of Liverpool or FC Porto!

The same rule would apply should both teams progress to the semi-finals.

Spurs and Man City's European and Premier League ambitions run through each other.

The UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw has laid out mouth-watering clashes on the road to the final at Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano on 1 June.

Their net has been breached a staggering 68 times so far this season, comfortably the most in the league and you'd have to think Salah and Co will be licking their lips at the thought of tearing Fulham to shreds.

Ajax will play Juventus, first in Amsterdam on April 10, in a rematch of two previous finals.

And Juventus' meeting with Ajax will be a rematch of the 1996 Champions League final at Rome's Stadio OIimpico, a match that the Italians won via a penalty shootout.
