That secured their place in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in 14 years but supporters were raging when a Chelsea legend picked them out with Bayern Munich.

Meanwhile, holders City serenely sailed into the last-eight by defeating Man Utd’s conquerors Copenhagen 6-2 on aggregate.

And, for the third successive year, they will meet Real Madrid in the knockout stages.

Arsenal host Bayern at Emirates Stadium, with no away fans allowed, in the first leg while City head to Spain.

Now Uefa have confirmed the date and timings for their full quarter-final line-up – and it has left English armchair fans fuming.

Arsenal and City’s first legs will take place at 8pm on Tuesday 9 April, while the crucial return matches will be on Wednesday 17 April.

One fan reacted to the news by posting: “Who the hell organise these schedules man.

“I just checked and the Madrid/City and the Arsenal/Bayern matches are at the same time.”
