Champions League last 16 draw an exact repeat of rehearsal

The Champions League draw for the last 16 has seen the same teams pitted against one another as yesterday’s mock-up.

The draw, conducted by Uefa general secretary Gianni Infantino in Nyon, conjured up mouthwatering ties such as Real Madrid – Manchester United and AC Milan – Barcelona.

But it had an air of familiarity to it, as Wednesday’s rehearsal gave us the exact same eight ties, with Bayern Munich also facing Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund playing Shakhtar Donetsk.

The first leg of the 16 of the Champions League will be played on February 12, 13, 19 or 20, with the reverse ties on March 5, 6, 19 or 20.
