Match background Only this chapter

Manchester City, who have found the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals a difficult hurdle to overcome in recent years, take on Borussia Dortmund, a club appearing in the last eight for the first time since 2017.

• City are in the quarter-finals for the fourth successive season but their last three campaigns have all ended at this stage. Indeed, they have reached the semi-finals only once, in 2015/16; Dortmund, meanwhile, have lost their last two UEFA Champions League quarter-finals but overall have triumphed in the last eight three times out of six.

• However, while City are on a six-game winning run, home and away, against German clubs – including this season's round of 16 – Dortmund have lost their last five games against Premier League opponents.

Previous meetings
• The teams were paired together for the only previous time in the 2012/13 group stage, only City's second UEFA Champions League campaign, and it proved an unhappy one for the English club.

• A 90th-minute Mario Balotelli penalty did rescue a point for the English champions at the City of Manchester Stadium on Matchday 2, Marco Reus having given Dortmund the lead a minute past the hour, but Julian Schieber's 57th-minute goal proved enough for the German club to win the Matchday 6 fixture at the BVB Stadion Dortmund.

• Those results helped Jürgen Klopp's Dortmund finish first in Group D on 14 points, ahead of Real Madrid and Ajax. While BVB went on to reach the final, losing an all-German decider against Bayern München at Wembley, City under Roberto Mancini bowed out after finishing fourth in their section on three points and failing to win any of their six games.

• While Sergio Agüero is the sole City survivor from those two fixtures, having played 90 minutes at home before coming on as a substitute in Germany, Reus and Mats Hummels played both games while Łukasz Piszczek featured in Manchester and was an unused substitute in Dortmund. İlkay Gündoğan, now of City, started both games for Dortmund.

Form guide
Manchester City
• City's record in European Cup quarter-finals is W1 L3:
2019/20 Lyon L 1-3
2018/19 Tottenham L 4-4 away goals (0-1 a, 4-3 h)
2017/18 Liverpool L 1-5 (0-3 a, 1-2 h)
2015/16 Paris Saint-Germain W 3-2 (2-2 a, 1-0 h)

• City scored three goals in each of their first three Group C victories this season, beating Porto (3-1), Marseille and Olympiacos (both 3-0) before a 1-0 win in Greece on Matchday 4 secured progress. A goalless draw in Porto in their penultimate fixture confirmed City in first place before a closing 2-0 win at home to Marseille.

• Josep Guardiola's side then beat Dortmund's domestic rivals Borussia Mönchengladbach 2-0 twice in the round of 16, with both games played in Budapest.

• It is 706 minutes since City conceded a UEFA Champions League goal, Luis Díaz's 14th-minute opener for Porto on Matchday 1. The record for the competition, set by Arsenal in 2005/06, is 995 minutes, with City now second in the all-time rankings having moved above Juventus (690 minutes).

• City finished second in the 2019/20 Premier League and bowed out of the UEFA Champions League at the quarter-final stage for the third season running, going down 3-1 against Lyon in their one-off tie in Lisbon. They had finished first in their group with 14 points (W4 D2) before seeing off Real Madrid in the last 16, winning 2-1 away and at home against the 13-time European champions.

• This is the Cityzens' tenth UEFA Champions League campaign; they have been involved every season since 2011/12.

• City have scored 52 goals in their last 21 UEFA Champions League matches; over the last three seasons their record is W20 D4 L3 with 68 goals scored and 22 conceded.

• Guardiola's team are unbeaten in 12 home European matches (W11 D1) since a 2-1 loss against Lyon on Matchday 1 in 2018/19.

• City have won their last four home matches in the UEFA Champions League knockout phase – and five of the last seven (L2) – but overall have won only six of their 12 home knockout matches in the competition (D2 L4).

• That aggregate win against Mönchengladbach made City's record in two-legged ties against German clubs W3 L2. The two previous wins both came against Schalke, in the 2018/19 round of 16 and in the semi-finals of their victorious European Cup Winners' Cup campaign in 1969/70; they lost in the UEFA Cup quarter-finals to Mönchengladbach in 1978/79 and Hamburg 30 years later.

• The second leg against Mönchengladbach this season was the Cityzens' sixth successive home victory against Bundesliga teams; a 3-1 defeat by Bayern in 2013 is their sole loss to German opposition in Manchester (W8 D2).

• A 1-1 draw in Mönchengladbach in November 2016 is the only one of City's last 11 matches against German clubs they have failed to win, stretching back to a 1-0 loss at Bayern in September 2014.

• Dortmund's record in European Cup quarter-finals is W4 L4:
2016/17 Monaco L 3-6 (2-3 h, 1-3 a)
2013/14 Real Madrid L 2-3 (0-3 a, 2-0 h)
2012/13 Málaga W 3-2 (0-0 a, 3-2 h)
1997/98 Bayern München W 1-0 (0-0 a, 1-0 h aet)
1996/97 Auxerre W 4-1 (3-1 h, 1-0 a)
1995/96 Ajax L 0-3 (0-2 h, 0-1 a)
1963/64 Dukla Praha W 5-3 (4-0 a, 1-3 h)
1957/58 AC Milan L 2-5 (1-1 h, 1-4 a)

• The German club responded to an opening 3-1 loss at Lazio this season by beating Zenit 2-0 at home before defeating Club Brugge 3-0 both in Belgium and in Germany. A 1-1 draw at home to Lazio on Matchday 5 confirmed their last-16 place before a 2-1 closing win at Zenit clinched top spot in Group F.

• Sevilla were then beaten 3-2 away before a 2-2 home draw, Erling Haaland scoring twice in both games.

• Haaland, who has found the net in all six of his 2020/21 UEFA Champions League appearances having sat out Matchdays 5 and 6, is the leading scorer in this season's competition with ten goals.

• Second in the Bundesliga behind Bayern for the second season running in 2019/20, this is Dortmund's 15th UEFA Champions League campaign; they were winners in 1997, and runners-up in 2013. BVB have now reached the quarter-finals in four of their last eight participations.

• Under Lucien Favre, who left the club in December 2020 and has been replaced by Edin Terzić until the end of 2020/21, Dortmund were second behind Barcelona in their section last season. They picked up ten points – seven of them at home – to finish ahead of Internazionale and Slavia Praha. BVB were 2-1 winners at home to Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16 first leg but bowed out after going down 2-0 in the return in France.

• Dortmund have won only three of their last 12 knockout phase matches in UEFA competition (D3 L6), the first two victories in that sequence coming at home – 3-2 against Atalanta in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League round of 32 first leg and last season's first-leg defeat of Paris – before the win in Seville this season.

• BVB have won nine of their last 15 European matches (D2 L4), all four defeats coming away from home.

• The win at Sevilla was only Dortmund's sixth victory in their last 20 European away matches (D4 L10), although all of those wins have come in their last 12 (L6).

• BVB were beaten away (0-3) and at home (0-1) by Tottenham in the 2018/19 round of 16, their last fixtures against an English club. That made their record in two-legged knockout ties against English clubs W3 L3; they have lost the last two.

• The German club have lost their last five games against English clubs and have not beaten Premier League opposition since a 2-1 victory at Tottenham in the 2015/16 UEFA Europa League round of 16 second leg; their record since is D1 L5.

• Dortmund have lost on four of their last five trips to England and eight of their 13 games away to English clubs overall (W4 D1).

UEFA Champions League: Did you know?

Overall records
• In 2016/17 Real Madrid became the first team to successfully defend the UEFA Champions League trophy, with AC Milan (1989, 1990) the previous club to win consecutive European Cups. Milan (1994, 1995), Ajax (1995, 1996), Juventus (1996, 1997) and Manchester United (2008, 2009) have all returned to the UEFA Champions League final as holders only to lose.

• Real Madrid's 2018 triumph made them the first team to win three successive European Cups twice. The Spanish side won the first five editions of the tournament, between 1956 and 1960; Ajax (1971–73) and Bayern München (1974–76) have also lifted the trophy three years in a row.

• Only two teams have ever won the UEFA Champions League on home soil: Borussia Dortmund (1997, final in Munich) and Juventus (1996, final in Rome), while Manchester United lost the 2011 final in London and 12 months later Bayern were beaten in the showpiece in their own stadium, the Fußball Arena München.

Knockout stage
• Real Madrid have qualified for the UEFA Champions League knockout phase a record 25 times, including 24 in succession. The first leg of their 2020/21 round of 16 tie against Atalanta was their 100th knockout match in the competition; they have now played 101 knockout games, ahead of Bayern München (98) and Barcelona (97).

• Teams have overturned a first-leg deficit to go through 49 times, including six in 2018/19 – a competition record for a single season – and Paris Saint-Germain in last season's round of 16.

• Before 2018/19, only twice – Ajax's defeat of Panathinaikos in the 1995/96 semi-finals and Internazionale's victory against Bayern in the 2010/11 round of 16 – had a side progressed after a home first-leg loss. However, Ajax again (against Real Madrid) and Manchester United (against Paris Saint-Germain) both achieved the feat in the 2018/19 round of 16 before Tottenham (against Ajax) did likewise in the semi-finals.

• The biggest losing margin a side has overhauled was achieved by Barcelona against Paris in the 2016/17 last 16, when they lost 4-0 away but progressed thanks to a 6-1 home success. That eclipsed the previous record held by Deportivo La Coruña in the 2003/04 quarter-finals, when they went down 4-1 at AC Milan but won 4-0 at home; Roma equalled that margin in the 2017/18 quarter-finals, turning round a 4-1 first-leg loss at Barcelona with a 3-0 home success, while in the 2018/19 semi-finals Liverpool lost 3-0 in the first leg at Barcelona but went through after a 4-0 home victory.

• Thirty-five ties have been decided on away goals, including 13 where the triumphant team lost the first leg. Bayern and Monaco have benefited from the away goals rule five times – more than any other club – whereas Internazionale have been eliminated by that method a record four times.

• In all, 31 ties have required extra time. Fifteen have been settled by extra time alone: eight round of 16 encounters including Porto-Juventus in 2020/21, five quarter-finals, the 2007/08 semi-final between Chelsea and Liverpool, and the 2013/14 final between Real Madrid and Atlético.

• Sixteen ties have gone to penalties, including seven finals – 1996, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2012 and 2016. The first two-legged tie decided on spot kicks was PSV Eindhoven's 4-2 victory over Lyon on 13 April 2005 after a 2-2 aggregate draw, still the only quarter-final to go to penalties. Bayern, Chelsea and Atlético have all appeared in three shoot-outs, sharing the competition record, with Bayern, Atlético and Liverpool having won the most (two apiece).

• The 2015/16 round of 16 tie between Atlético and PSV was the first to finish goalless after two legs. Thirteen have finished 1-0 on aggregate, most recently Real Madrid's defeat of Manchester City in the 2015/16 semi-finals.

• Liverpool (versus Porto) and Bayern (versus Beşiktaş) both won 5-0 in the 2017/18 round of 16, equalling the knockout phase record for the biggest first-leg lead – Real Madrid's 6-1 victory at Schalke in 2013/14 and Bayern's 5-0 success at Sporting CP in 2008/09, both also in the round of 16.

• Bayern eventually beat Sporting by a record aggregate margin of 12-1 after a 7-1 stroll in the home second leg; that tie also featured more goals (13) over its two legs than any UEFA Champions League knockout tie until it was equalled by Liverpool's 7-6 aggregate win against Roma in the 2017/18 semi-final.

• There have been 216 UEFA Champions League quarter-finalists. Spain has provided the largest number (52), followed by England (47), with Germany in third place on 33 and Italy fourth on 30. Twelve other countries have provided teams for the last eight.

• In 2019/20 Barcelona reached a record 13th successive European Cup quarter-final, a run that was ended this season.

• Bayern have reached 19 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, one more than Barça and two more than Real Madrid.

• The biggest European Cup quarter-final victory was Real Madrid's 8-0 first-leg defeat of Sevilla in 1957/58. In 2019/20 Bayern became the second team to score eight in a last-eight match, defeating Barcelona 8-2.

• Manchester United's 7-1 win against Roma in 2006/07 is the biggest victory in a UEFA Champions League quarter-final match, a margin Bayern matched against Barcelona in 2019/20 (8-2). Bayern beat Porto 6-1 in 2014/15, Barcelona have twice won 5-1, against Chelsea after extra time (1999/2000) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2010/11), while there have been four 4-0 victories.

• Bayern and Manchester City jointly hold the record for the largest margin of victory in a UEFA Champions League knockout match. Bayern beat both Basel (2011/12) and Shakhtar Donetsk (2014/15) 7-0 in the round of 16 second leg, while City beat Schalke by the same scoreline at the same stage of the 2018/19 competition.

• A record five clubs from England participated in the 2017/18 knockout phase. Including 2019/20, England has also provided four clubs on eight other occasions – as has Spain six times and Germany three. England is the only nation to have provided four quarter-finalists in a season, 2018/19 being the third occasion after 2007/08 and 2008/09.

• Clarence Seedorf is the only player to have lifted the European Cup with three clubs (Ajax 1995, Real Madrid 1998, Milan 2003, 2007). Bob Paisley (Liverpool 1977, 1978, 1981) was the first coach to win it three times, a feat Carlo Ancelotti (Milan 2003, 2007, Real Madrid 2014) and Zinédine Zidane (2016, 2017, 2018) have replicated.

• In 2014 Ancelotti also became the fifth coach to win the trophy with two clubs; Ottmar Hitzfeld (Borussia Dortmund 1997, Bayern 2001), Ernst Happel (Feyenoord 1970, Hamburg 1983), José Mourinho (Porto 2004, Internazionale 2010) and Jupp Heynckes (Real Madrid 1998, Bayern 2013) had previously achieved the feat.

Goalscoring records
• Lionel Messi became the first player to score five goals in a match in Barcelona's 7-1 win against Bayer Leverkusen on 7 March 2012, a feat matched by Shakhtar Donetsk's Luiz Adriano at BATE Borisov on 21 October 2014. Fourteen more players, also including Messi and Robert Lewandowski twice, have scored four times in a game, most recently Olivier Giroud for Chelsea at Sevilla in the 2020/21 group stage. That was the fourth quadruple in succession to be scored away from home after Bayern's Serge Gnabry and Lewandowski (group stage v Tottenham and Crvena zvezda respectively) and Josip Iličić (Atalanta v Valencia, round of 16 second leg) all achieved the feat in 2019/20.

• Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 67 goals in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds, more than any other player. Messi is second on 47 goals, ahead of Lewandowski (24), Thomas Müller (23), and Karim Benzema, Raúl González and Andriy Shevchenko (all 18).

• Messi's hat-trick against PSV Eindhoven on Matchday 1 of the 2018/19 competition was his eighth in the competition, a mark Ronaldo matched against Atlético de Madrid in that season's round of 16 second leg.

Oldest and youngest players
• Lazio goalkeeper Marco Ballotta is the oldest player to compete in the UEFA Champions League having featured against Real Madrid on Matchday 6 in 2007/08 aged 43 years 252 days. Alessandro Costacurta is the oldest outfield player; the Milan defender was 40 years and 211 days when he played against AEK Athens in 2006/07.

• Francesco Totti is the oldest player to score in the competition, aged 38 years 59 days, in Roma's 1-1 draw at CSKA Moskva on 25 November 2014. Ryan Giggs (37 years 290 days) was the previous record holder.

• Youssoufa Moukoko is the youngest player to have appeared, aged 16 years 18 days for Borussia Dortmund at Zenit on 8 December 2020. He replaced Celestine Babayaro, who was 16 years 87 days when he started for Anderlecht against Steaua Bucureşti on 23 November 1994; Babayaro was sent off in the 37th minute.

• Ansu Fati's winner for Barcelona at Inter on Matchday 6 in 2019/20 made him the youngest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history, at the age of 17 years 40 days. He eclipsed the previous record of Olympiacos's Peter Ofori-Quaye (17 years 195 days) that had lasted since 1 October 1997.
