PREDICTION: Who will win this seasons Champions League?


The Champions League draw descended in to chaos on Monday after UEFA were forced in to a re-draw following a technical error during the first attempt.

Three hours after the first draw took place, officials tried again in Nyon, with UEFA deputy general secretary Giorgio Marchetti opening with an apology for the earlier mistakes.

“As many of you will have noticed there were some errors made in the original draw caused by a malfunction of the software which went through an outside provider to tell us which teams are eligible to be drawn against each other,” he said.

“After the draw the external independent auditor couldn’t guarantee the problem with the IT did not exist from the start and as a result the full draw needs to be redone.”

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 to decide who will advance in to the quarter finals of the Champions League.

Below is a summary of the draw and also a look at how this seasons competition will unfold, with the draw for the quarter-finals and the semi-finals taking place at the same time.
