The Champions League draw has been declared void and will be “entirely redone” at 14:00 GMT.

Uefa’s statement said “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.

“As a result of this, the draw has been declared void and will be entirely redone at 1500 CET (14:00 GMT).”

The Champions League last-16 fixtures had 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
