UEFA to redo Champions League draw for the round of 16, voiding initial pairings after mistake.

UEFA voided the initial results of Monday’s draw, which had created another matchup between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi after Manchester United was paired with Paris Saint-Germain. However, United had initially been paired with Villarreal even though the English club’s name should not have been in that pot since the two advanced from the same group.

UEFA blamed the mishap on “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.”

“As a result of this, the draw has been declared void,” UEFA said in a statement published 90 minutes after the draw was done.

After a mistake involving Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, and Manchester United, UEFA will conduct a new Champions League last-16 draw at 7:46 pm NT.

The previous draw of Champions League was:

Benfica vs Real Madrid

Villarreal vs Manchester City

Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich

Salzburg vs Liverpool

Inter Milan vs Ajax

Sporting Lisbon vs Juventus

Chelsea vs Lille

Paris Saint-Germain vs Manchester United
