Who will reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League? Manchester City have only reached the last four on one previous occasion, facing Real Madrid in 2015/16. Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, reached the penultimate round in 1997, 1998 and 2013. Here are the facts on Tuesday's quarter-final first leg in Manchester.

The scenario

  • Coach Pep Guardiola's team have reached the quarter-finals for the fourth season in succession, but they have been knocked out at this stage in the last three seasons by Lyon, Tottenham and Liverpool respectively. Only in 2015/16 did they reach the semi-finals.
  • Borussia Dortmund have won three of their previous six quarter-final ties.
  • The English outfit have reached the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals with seven wins and a 17-1 goal difference.
  • Borussia's record en route to the last eight: five wins, two draws and one defeat (goal difference of 17-9).
  • While City have won their last six games against German opposition, including both legs of this season's quarter-final against Mönchengladbach, BVB have lost their last five meetings with clubs from the Premier League.
  • There have only been two previous matches between the teams – in the 2012/13 group stages. Mario Balotelli rescued the then English champions a point with a 90th-minute penalty at the City of Manchester Stadium on Matchday 2, after Marco Reus had fired BVB into a 61st-minute lead. The Black & Yellows then won the return fixture in Dortmund on Matchday 6 thanks to a Julian Schieber goal on the 57-minute mark.

Manchester City facts

  • Manchester City have not conceded a UEFA Champions League goal for 706 minutes (Luis Díaz scored in the 14th minute for Porto on Matchday 1). The competition record, set by Arsenal in 2005/06, stands at 995 minutes. City's run has pushed Juventus (690 minutes) down to third place.
  • The Cityzens are taking part in the UEFA Champions League for the 10th time. They have been an ever-present figure in Europe's elite club competition since 2011/12.
  • In their last 21 matches in the UCL, Manchester City have found the net 52 times. Over the past three seasons, there have been 20 victories, four draws and three defeats (combined goal difference of 68-22).
  • Guardiola's team are unbeaten in 12 European home games (11 wins and one draw) and have won each of their last four home games in the UEFA Champions League knockout rounds.
  • The win against Gladbach in the last 16 second leg was the sixth home victory in a row against German sides.

Borussia Dortmund facts

  • Erling Haaland, who missed Matchdays 5 and 6 due to injury, has scored at least one goal in each of his six appearances this season. The Norway international is the leading scorer in the competition with 10 goals.
  • BVB have won nine and drawn two of their last 15 European matches. All four defeats came on the road.
  • Julian Brandt's next appearance will be his 50th in UEFA club competitions.
