Twitter has been chirping since an earlier Champions League last 16 draw paired Man United against PSG, with fans excited that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will come head-to-head again.

Manchester United was drawn against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last 16 draw on Monday.

Sports enthusiasts were busily anticipating a face-off between Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos when the two teams meet. They wanted to know if Ronaldo’s skills at the centre forward position could surmount the defence of Ramos at centre back.

This clash for many would have been extraordinary because the two players stood on the same pitch to defend Real Madrid.

Ramos as captain, led the Ronaldo-dominated Real Madrid team. Since 2005, Ramos made 671 appearances in a Real Madrid shirt for the next 15 years and won every trophy, including five La Ligas and four Champions League titles. 

According to the Red Devil fans, they cannot accept this draw against PSG. So instead, they claim it was a rig.

The dreams of many, for now, will be shattered. This is because the Union of European Football Association (UEFA) says there was a technical problem during the draw.

“Following a technical problem with the software of an external service provider that instructs the officials as to which teams are eligible to play each other, a material error occurred in the draw for the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.”

Given this, the earlier draw is null and void. A new draw will be done at 1500 CET, according to UEFA.

The question remains, will Man Utd be drawn to PSG in the next draw, or will sports fanatics have to wait another time to see this clash hopefully.

Here are some reactions to the cancelled clash:
