The draw for the Champions League last 16 has been declared void and will be repeated. Inter had been drawn against Ajax but now Inter will find out their actual opponents for the next round.
UEFA released the following statement:

As a result of this, the draw has been declared void and will be entirely redone at 1500 CET."
