Yesterday, in Nyon, the UEFA representatives held a draw for the first playoff round of the Champions League. For the first time in history, the first results of the draw were cancelled due to technical issues.
Some of the teams weren’t able to get particular opponents (balls with opponents were not included in the particular draws), so the organisers decided to remake the procedure.
After all, the following pairs were gotten:
- Salzburg vs Bayern
- Sporting vs Manchester City
- Benfica vs Ajax
- Chelsea vs Lille
- Atletico vs Manchester United
- Villarreal – Juventus
- Inter – Liverpool
- PSG – Real Madrid
The first teams in the list will be playing their first matches at home as they have taken second place in their groups. The second-listed squads were the winners of their groups and so will host the second match at home.
