UEFA Champions League Round of 16 full draw

Given the current Covid-19 outbreak in Manchester United’s squad cast doubt on their Premier League clash with Brentford on Tuesday, the last thing the club needed on Monday was more uncertainty.

A mistake in the UEFA Champions League draw meant that a second round of the process was required. This means that after initially facing PSG, United will now face Atletico Madrid in the last 16 instead.

For interim president Ralph Rangnick, this tie will be difficult to negotiate, as will the busy calendar of the upcoming holiday period and the challenges posed by Covid-19.

Manchester United were puzzled on Monday in the Champions League draw.

United drew a mistake

United were at the center of the Champions League controversy on Monday with no fault of their own.

They were tied against Villarreal initially, although that was not possible because the Red Devils played Yellow Submarine in the group stages. It was then that Manchester City faced the La Liga team.

Then when Atlético was tied as the next team, United were not included in the pool of teams that could play with them.

As a result, the withdrawal was eventually deemed invalid and rescheduled for later in the day.

Real Madrid upset by the Champions League slip

The team that ended up facing PSG in the second round was Real Madrid and the 13-times European champions are said to be unhappy with the result.

Paris Saint-Germain finished second after Manchester City in their group, which meant they were the team to avoid for the group winners of the draw.

This means that Carlo Ancelotti’s side will be tasked with taming the impressive attacking power of transfer target Kylian Mbappe, along with former Barcelona legends Neymar and Lionel Messi.

Los Blancos had initially drawn Benfica in the round of 16 and despite being a talented side, they are unable to replicate the kind of threat the Parisians pose in attack.

Anthony Martial – via his agent – and Andreas Pereira have already expressed their intention to leave United and Cavani is said to be attracting the interest of Barcelona, ​​who are seeking reinforcements in attack.

Reports suggest that despite Barcelona being eliminated from the Champions League, Cavani is still interested in a move to the Camp Nou.

The Uruguay international has yet to play for Rangnick, as he continues to recover from a irritated Achilles tendon. His last game was a 2-2 draw with Atalanta in the Champions League at the beginning of November.
