The stadiums which will host each leg of the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final matches between Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund have today been confirmed by UEFA.

The first leg will take place at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday April 6th, with City being able to host a Champions League tie for the first time in over three months.

The second leg will be played eight days later on Wednesday April 14th at Borussia Dortmund's home ground; Signal Iduna Park.

The location of both matches were revealed today Goal's Manchester City correspondent Jonathan Smith. The venues were in doubt due to international travel restrictions in Germany, which led to both Round of 16 games involving Manchester City taking place at the Puskás Aréna in Budapest.

While previous Champions League venue changes were seen as a necessity in the current global health crisis, it evoked some criticism due to the away goals rule still applying, despite matches taking place at a neutral venue in front of no fans. 

Of course, no fans will be permitted to attend either Quarter Final leg, but the familiarity of playing in their usual stadia may give some advantage to each side in their respective home-legs.

The winner of the tie will be determined at Signal Iduna Park, and will then go on to face either Bayern Munch or Paris Saint German just two weeks later.
