Manchester City have lost all four of their European matches against English opponents, losing both legs of the 1970-71 Cup Winners’ Cup semi-final against Chelsea and both legs of last season’s Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool.

Spurs are competing in only their second Champions League quarter-final, losing previously 0-5 on aggregate to Real Madrid in 2010-11; in all European competition, Spurs have been eliminated from their last five quarter-final ties, most recently in the 2012-13 Europa League against FC Basel.

Manchester City eliminated FC Schalke 04 by an aggregate score of 10-2 in the last 16, becoming the first English side to score 10 goals across two legs of a European Cup/Champions League knockout match since Liverpool in October 1980 (11-2 vs OPS).
