According to The Independent’s Miguel Delaney, the Champions League last-16 fixtures will likely stand despite what appeared to be an administrative error regarding Manchester United.

United were first erroneously drawn against Villarreal – a side they had already been paired with in Group F.

Former Arsenal forward Andrey Arshavin was asked to draw again, and neighbours Manchester City will instead face Villarreal.

However, for reasons which are unclear, United were not then put in the pot of potential opponents for Atletico Madrid, who instead got Bayern Munich, with United subsequently pitted against Paris St-Germain.
