Paris Saint-Germain will face Real Madrid in a blockbuster Champions league clash after the last-16 had to be redrawn following an initial blunder by UEFA.
European's governing body were forced to declare the original draw 'null and void' after United were mistakenly drawn against Group F opponents Villarreal but then left out as a possible opponent for Atletico Madrid.
The draw paired Ralf Rangnick's side with PSG but following complaints by Atletico - who were drawn against Bayern Munich - UEFA revealed they would conduct the entire draw from scratch.
