PSG Draw Real Madrid In The Champions League Last 16 Redraw

Real Madrid drew PSG in the redrawn Champions League last 16, after UEFA messed up the first attempt on Monday morning.

The Champions League last 16 draw had to be done twice on Monday, after confusion over the wrong balls being put in the first time.

In the morning, Manchester United's ball was put in the draw to face Villarreal, despite the two sides meeting in the group, and was later missed out of the draw with Atletico Madrid.

That led to UEFA being forced to do the draw for the second time, after United had ended up with a tie against Paris Saint-Germain.

In the redraw, Ralf Rangnick's side managed to avoid a meeting with Mauricio Pochettino's team but instead were drawn in another tough tie, this time with Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid.

Whilst United would have been delighted not to come up against Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and probably Neymar, Real will be fuming.

Los Blancos were drawn with Benfica in the original draw and their tie got pulled out of the hat before the controversy featuring United.

They didn't want to be included in the second draw but ended up getting arguably the hardest possible opponents in the last 16.

Carlo Ancelotti's side will come up against a couple of very familiar faces, with Lionel Messi having scored more El Clasico goals than everyone else and Sergio Ramos having played for Real for 16 years up until the summer.

As well as screwing up with United, Real were in the draw with Villarreal on the first attempt, despite them not being able to be drawn together as they're from the same country.

Liverpool were also added to the Atleti draw, despite being in the same group as Diego Simeone's team, adding to the complete farce.

There was more confusion in the afternoon's second draw as Liverpool weren't allowed to be drawn with Villarreal and people couldn't work out why.

There was a pretty sensible explanation though as neither Villarreal or Inter Milan could face Real and Inter also couldn't face Juventus.

Chelsea managed to somehow get drawn with Lille for both draws!
