Were they not happy with PSG vs Man Utd draw?
Is it because of financial implications?
Due to errors, the Champions League round of 16 draw will be re-done at 3pm CET.
It failed to include Man Utd’s ball in the options to face Atlético during the first draw.
Wow! A Technical blunder!
A software glitch fiasco at this level is incomprehensible. How difficult it is to conduct a draw of 16 teams!?
2 - Manchester United will face Atletico Madrid in European competition for the first time since November 1991, when they were eliminated by the Spaniards in the second round of the Cup Winners’ Cup. Throwback.
