United are looking to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 2014, when David Moyes was manager – but the Spanish side have had a much longer wait since their last appearance in the last-eight of Europe’s elite club competition.
That was back in 1958, when they beat Danish side AGF Aarhus at this stage of the European Cup, but lost 10-2 to eventual winners Real Madrid in the quarters, including an 8-0 defeat in Madrid.
But all events in that year’s European Cup were overshadowed by the Munich air disaster, which claimed the lives of 23 people, including eight Manchester United players, on their way back from their quarter-final tie in Belgrade.
