Updated : UEFA Voids Champions League Draw, Set To Be Redone

UEFA has come out to pronounce the Champions League draw which was done hours ago as null and void and that a new draw is set to be done today at 1500 CET.

The first draw had the following teams facing each other;

Benfica v Real Madrid

Atletico Madrid v Bayern Munich

Inter Milan v Ajax

Chelsea v Lille

Villarreal v Manchester City 

RB Salzburg v Liverpool

Sporting v Juventus

PSG v Manchester United

The above was the result of the draw held earlier but UEFA has declared the draw null and void therefore a new draw will be done.

The footballing body took to its twitter handle to reveal that due to a technical problem which was encountered during the draw it is of the opinion that the draw was compromised and as such a new one will be done.

“Following a technical problem with the software of an external service source provider that instructs the officials as to which teams are eligible to play each other, a material error occurred in the draw for the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.”

“As a result of this, the draw has been declared void and will be entirely redone at 1500 CET”
