The Champions League draw for the last-16 has been made for a second time following controversy in the original showcase.

Manchester United were initially drawn against Group F opponents in Villarreal, but by UEFA’s own rules, no team can be drawn against a club from their group or their own association, meaning a new ball from the pot had to be selected.

The Europa League winners were ultimately drawn against Manchester City and Man Utd were pitted with PSG, but the mix up left a sour note on the spectacle and following backlash in the conclusion of the drawn, UEFA declared the original fixture list null and void.

A redraw has since taken place and below you can read the full fixture list of the new match-ups scheduled to take place early next year.
