WHAT WE KNOW
The Champions League draw for the Last 16 will be redone after an error during the procedure.
First, Villarreal were paired up with Manchester United, whom they met in the group stage.
And then it appears like United weren’t included in Atletico Madrid’s pot as potential opponents in the Round of 16.
Thus, the draw will be done all over again and all teams will be eligible, including Real Madrid who were initially drawn with Benfica.
UEFA issued the following statement: “Following a technical problem with the software of an external service provider that instructs the officials as to which teams are eligible to play each other, a material error occurred in the draw for the Uefa Champions League Round of 16.
“As a result of this, the draw has been declared void and will be entirely redone at 1500 CET (14:00 GMT)”
