Manchester United will face Atletico Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League after a second draw in Switzerland on Monday. 

The re-drawing was necessary after the initial last-16 draw was declared null and void after what UEFA called a "technical error" involving Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United.

Ralf Rangnick’s side had initially been drawn to face Paris Saint-Germain, which would have pitted Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo against each other once again.

They are now set to face the Spanish outfit for the very first time in the competition.

Elsewhere, holders, Chelsea will take on Ligue 1 champions Lille, who they had also initially drawn the first time around.

Liverpool will meet Inter Milan and Manchester City must prepare for Portuguese outfit Sporting Lisbon.

Arguably the pick of the ties is Paris Saint-Germain versus Real Madrid.

The draw in full is:

Salzburg vs Bayern Munich

Benfica vs Ajax

Sporting Lisbon vs Manchester City

Chelsea vs Lille

Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United

Villarreal vs Juventus

Inter Milan vs Liverpool

Paris Saint-Germain vs Real Madrid

The last-16 ties will be split across different weeks, with the first legs taking place on February 15-16 and February 22-23.

The second legs are then on March 8-9 and March 15-16.
