Los Blancos initially drew Benfica in the first draw, but that was declared void after an error with Manchester United.

The re-draw took place a few hours later and Carlo Ancelotti's charges were drawn to face Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, who drew Man United in the previous draw.

ESPN have reported that the Los Blancos bosses were not happy with the re-draw and did not believe the software excuse given by UEFA.

"It is a lie that it was a software error," a club source told ESPN.

"It is human error, beginning with the second pairing. Our pairing [Real Madrid-Benfica] was legal."

Real Madrid's Director of Institutional Relations Emilio Butragueno is looking forward to the clash but says the re-draw was regrettable.

"Surprising, regrettable and very hard to understand, when you take into account the millions of fans who were following the draw."

"Having said that, we go into this tie with a lot of excitement. We're aware of what this competition means for the club and the fans," he told Real Madrid TV. "We're also aware of the difficulties, with the quality of players [PSG] have. We believe the team will play two great games. They'll be fantastic for football."
