The fresh draw also leads PSG vs Real Madrid, Liverpool play inter, Manchester City tackle Sporting Lisbon while Chelsea will slug it out with Lille.

United looked to have been offered the biggest reprieve after drawing PSG in the initial draw, but a meeting with Atletico in European competition since 1991 will still be a stern test for Ralf Rangnick’s side.
