Manchester United were pitted against Villarreal which is a clear breach of competition rules as they have faced each other in the group stage.

After realising the technical glitch, the La Liga side were then drawn against Manchester City. The Red Devils of Manchester were not put in the correct pot as they were most likely to be pitted against Atletico Madrid, who were the next team to be picked.

It is a major howler from an esteemed Football federation, which is not expected at the highest level of club football.

Georgio Marchetti and Andrei Arshavin were in-charge of the draw proceedings.

This was the result of the draw before it was called off:-

Benfica vs Real Madrid
Villarreal vs Manchester United
Atletico Madrid vs Bayern Munich
RB Salzburg vs Liverpool
Sporting Lisbon vs Juventus
Chelsea vs LOSC Lille
PSG vs Manchester United
According to IST, the draw will be conducted at 7:30 PM IST on Monday.
