2021-22 UEFA Champions League Round of 16 Draw Results (REDRAW UPDATE)

Written By High Press 10 on December 13, 2021

There were only a few surprises in Champions League group play this season.

Barcelona…they gone. The Catalans are Europa League bound. Liverpool went perfect in the so-called “Group of Death.” Struggling Juventus topped holder Chelsea’s group.

BREAKING: Due to a technical error that saw Manchester United left out of early draws, a redraw will take place at 9am EST.

The redraw is complete. Only one of the originally drawn match-ups held in the redraw (Chelsea vs Lille). The new headline match-ups include Atletico Madrid vs Manchester United (this may actually be a tougher pairing for them than PSG) and PSG vs Real Madrid. And actually, Inter Milan tops Serie A currently. Liverpool are one of the three best teams in the world right now. That should be a quality contest.

Keep reading for all of the original and new pairings.

When is the Champions League Round of 16 draw?

You can watch the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League Round of 16 draw on Monday, December 13th at 6am EST.

However, due to a technical error, a redraw will take place at 9am EST on the 13th.

Where can I watch the Champions League Round of 16 draw?

Initial Round of 16 draw reaction

The original draw was a little more compelling. However, the redraw might be even more chalk.

While a 2 seed, Chelsea will be heavily favored over Lille and should advance with relative ease. Real Madrid should be slight favorites to advance over PSG. It’ll be interesting to see who oddsmakers prefer between Atletico Madrid and Manchester United. They SHOULD favor Atleti though. They’re the stronger side. But more public money will skew Man U’s odds.

Per SPI rankings, the top match-up is Inter Milan vs Liverpool. The Reds will be favored, but RB Salzburg would’ve been a more welcomed opponent.
