The draw for the last 16 had to be redrawn after a mistake resulted in the original ties being declared null and void.

Manchester United was originally placed with Villarreal, however, this was an error as they were in the same group. They were then wrongly not included in the pot for the subsequent tie.

PSG was then drawn with Man Utd – which would have seen Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi face-off – however, the entire draw was canceled and redrawn

Paris Saint-Germain paired with Real Madrid, Messi, and Mbappe heading to the Bernabeu, while Inter Milan matched with Liverpool on Monday in the UEFA Champions League Round 16 draw.

UEFA redid the original draw done earlier on Monday due to a technical glitch with the software of an external provider.

Manchester United – who were originally against PSG – will face Atletico Madrid, Manchester City are against Sporting CP.

Round 16 Draws:

Salzburg-Bayern Munich

Sporting-Manchester City



Atletico Madrid-Manchester United



PSG-Real Madrid

The first leg matches in the last 16 will be played on Feb. 15-16 and 22-23.

Return dates will be held a few weeks later on March 8/9/15/16
