We now know the potential opponents for the Champions League quarter-finals after Barcelona destroyed Stuttgart and Bordeaux wriggled past Olympiakos. However, doing a brief evaluation of all seven teams, the official website made a mistake.

‘Bordeaux, on the other hand, have never played a competitive game against United’ the report says but of course this is not true. United met Bordeaux in the 1999/2000 season in the short-lived second group stage of the Champions League. The Reds won both games, 2-0 at Old Trafford and 2-1 at Stade Lescure, with a late Solskjaer goal.

So, don’t get fooled. We DID meet Bordeaux and we did win twice. More about them and all the other potential opponents tomorrow. Good night!
