UEFA Champions League Round of 16 can be redrawn following a mistake with the Manchester United ball
However, a new controversy has arisen. During Atletico Madrid’s draw with Bayern Munich, Manchester United’s ball was not in the pot. Atletico could have drawn United as well and United could have avoided PSG so early in the tournament.
Now the decision is pending with UEFA whether they will redraw the UCL Round Of 16 picture to rectify the mistake.
