Butragueño about UCL redraw: “Surprising, terrible and hard to understand”

13 Dec 2021

“It was surprising, terrible, and difficult to understand, given the millions of fans watching the draw and the world of sport,” Real Madrid spokesperson Emilio Butragueño told the club’s official media, according to Managing Madrid.

“We are looking forward to this match because we know how important this competition is for our club and our fans.”

“We are also aware that we are up against a tough opponent with a lot of good players, but we are confident in our ability to win two great matches and hope to be in the quarterfinals draw.”

In the Champions League round of 16, Real Madrid was initially paired with Benfica. UEFA, on the other hand, had to redo the draw due to a software glitch that resulted in an error.

The Whites were paired with Paris Saint-Germain after the redraw.
