The draw for the round of 16 of the Champions League in full

The corrected draw for the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League took place this afternoon, with Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool finding out who they will face for the second time.

The draw, as planned, was made earlier this morning, but a “technical error” forced the draw for the second time, after an error related to the draw between United and Villarreal. The two teams were never supposed to meet each other after facing each other in the group stages.

The tie was quickly undone and United went to draw Paris Saint-Germain. However, United were not returned to the correct pot, which meant that they were denied the chance to face Atletico Madrid.

The European Football Association confirmed, after the error, that the draw will take place for the second time, to be held at 2 pm.
