The Champions League clashes between Man City and Dortmund are due to be played at the clubs’ home stadiums.

Manchester City

were supposed to host


at their home stadium in the first leg of the round-of-16 of the Champions League, however, due to coronavirus regulations and restrictions, the two teams were forced to face each other at Puskas Arena in Budapest for both legs.

Now, UEFA has now confirmed to


that Manchester City will face


at the Etihad Stadium in the first leg of the quarter-final tie and the return leg match will take place at Signal Iduna Park in Germany.

The Citizens are set to face Dortmund on April 6 and

Pep Guardiola

believes it is not going to be an easy clash.

“It’s a privilege to be in the last-eight teams,"

Guardiola said.

"I didn't see much of Dortmund but in this international break we will have a chance. They are a really good team.

“They were able to go through against Sevilla - who in knockout competitions are one of the strongest teams. They were able to beat them. Dortmund is tough but so would all of them be.

“We try to play a good first game and then good in the second one. If we do good games, we will go through, if they do good games, they will. There are no secrets other than that.”
