Champions League draw was exact copy of rehearsal, no-one agrees on the odds of it happening
One of those weird things that football inevitably throws up occurred yesterday, when it was revealed that the draw for the last 16 of the Champions League had created the exact same fixture programme as the rehearsal the day before.
Clearly the odds on such an event were incredibly long, but it appears that no-one could agree (or be bothered/able to do the maths) on exactly what the chances were on such an event.
The following odds were quoted by different outlets:
Metro – 5000/1
Daily Mail – 2000000/1
Sky – thousands
ESPN – millions
Sun – not as high as you’d think
Good to see everyone is singing off the same hymn sheet!
