Fortunes have shifted mightily for the two teams involved since this meeting 24 years ago. Back in 1993, Queen’s Park Rangers (QPR) finished near the top of the league in fifth, whereas Manchester City were a relatively inconsequential mid-table team, perennially overshadowed by their crosstown neighbor Manchester United.

Now, Manchester City is owned primarily by Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, vice president of the United Arab Emirates and head of the International Petroleum Investment Company, and has won multiple Premier League titles as a result of his heavy investment since 2008. QPR, on the other hand, has fallen out of the Premier League, relegated to the UK’s second tier of professional soccer, the Championship, and struggled to survive relegation from that last year.
