  1. My prediction:
    STE-SCH: Stavrev
    BAS-CHE: Kuipers
    ARS-MAR: Kralovec
    DOR-NAP: Undiano
    POR-AUS: Stark
    ZEN-ATL: Brych
    CEL-MIL: Proenca
    AJA-BAR: Clattenburg
    LEV-MAN: Bebek
    DON-SOC: Kassai
    JUV-KOP: Lannoy
    REA-GAL: Eriksson
    AND-BEN: Tagliavento
    PAR-OLY: Velasco
    CSKA-BAY: Hansson ;)
    MAN-PLZ: Duhamel ;)

    I don't know, what to do with the already decided group D. The observers do not really indicate a young First Group or ED referee...

    1. Isn't Wilfried Heitmann on the UEFA Referees Convention Panel? I think he usually observes young and upcoming referees. Bearing that in mind I think he is sort of an important observer...

      Delete
    2. Duhamel and Hansson? Improbable, I think.

    3. Pedro Proenca at Celtic Glasgow - AC Milan with UEFA Delegate Joao Morais seems impossible. ;-)

      Peter/Vienna

      Delete
    4. Not possible Proença with Morais.

      Delete
    5. OK, I missed the problem with Proenca. So, I replace him by Cakir.
      And I was not aware that Heitmann is an important observer. To be honest, I have not even heard of this panel before.

    1. Bayern - CSKA was already handled by an Italian crew in MD1 :)

      Delete
    2. Yo thanks, then I better change Stavrev with Orsato. But as said, it is difficult this time and I don't believe in even one hit.

      What if e.g. Fernández Marín observes Proenca twice in a row (Playoff and now Leverkusen-ManU) and if Mikkelsen observes Undiano twice in a row (Playoff and now Arsenal-Marseille)?

      Delete
    3. *I meant I change Orsato with Aydinus.

      Delete
    4. Niclas, surely Elite referee for Bayer Leverkusen - Manchester United... Huge game in the context of that group.
      Krondl observed kassai twice in the space of three weeks, so I don't know it could be possible.

      Delete
  5. I think that there is at least one Category 1 referee.
    Group D seems the most suitable for that.
    Boiko is one name expected.

    1. What about Turpin?

      Delete
    2. I would also bet on Marciniak for MD6.

  6. Martin Atkinson pulls out of EPL game this weekend, most likely an injury

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yep, Atkinson and his assistants (Kirkup & Long) have been moved to Saturday's Merseyside derby. However, Atkinson will act as Fourth Official.
      Meanwhile, Webb will take over from Atkinson and (with his regular assistants) will oversee Sunday's game between Man City-Tottenham. The only possible reason I can come up with for Atko's replacement is a CL game on Tuesday?

      Delete
  7. He is 4th Official on Saturday's match, along with his assistants (Referee Phil Dowd)
    Assumption here is that he will have a European Match this week

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Is it common that a referee does not have a match in his own competition prior to a European match? Looking at the previous matches from Kuipers and Nijhuis, they both also had matches in the Dutch Eredivisie prior to CL or EL matches... And coming weekend Kuipers has no match, so I don't think he will have a match in CL next week.

    2. I am not sure whether there is a certain rule determining that. In Germany e.g., it is always different.

  9. Serhiy Boiko will handle a match in 6th matchday of CL or EL. I guess it will be CL. The only Ukrainian referee in 5th matchday will be Yevhen Aranovsky in EL game.
