Champions League last 16 draw to be redone

PARIS: The draw for the Champions League last 16 ties will be conducted again after a technical error in the software which advises officials which teams can and cannot be paired together, UEFA said on Monday.

“Following 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, a material error occurred in the draw for the UEFA Champions League Round of 16,” UEFA said in a statement.

“As a result of this, the draw has been declared void and will be entirely redone at 10pm Monday Malaysian time.”
