Our Referee Observer's Report for Felix Brych's Europa League Final

Please find the The Third Team's referee observer's report for Felix Brych's UEFA Europa League Final attached below. The report follows UEFA's guidelines of referee observation but - as usual - sets own, independent accents and emphases with regard to the interpretation of the relevant match situations.


Our observers have corporately analyzed the match and have come to the conclusion to certify the German referee a really good, expected level performance (8.4) with one crucial mistake (7.9): not repeating the first penalty kick saved by Sevilla's goalkeeper Beto in the decisive penalty shoot-out. Furthermore, Additional Assistant Referee 1 Tobias Welz missed a foul inside the penalty area in his full area of responsibility in the 56th minute of play and was hence awarded a 7.9, too.

    1. It will be online, as soon as it is ready.
      There are also a couple of other missing reports. At the moment we all are quite busy. We hope to prepare them all prior to the WC, but expect them rather with more delay.

    2. That's my fault, sorry about that. I just sent in the report. Overall, I thought Clattenburg had a very good game in a "quite challenging" match, marred by one missed mandatory YC, a few missed fouls and a failure to identify risk factors leading to the confrontation at 87'. His verbal warnings were outstanding, and the second YC to Perez was perfect.

  4. very good report after a big discussion on Brych... Although I'm not 100% sure on the mark for Brych. Was an intense match and all the big issues were penalty area decisions...
    so for me should be 7.8 (8.2)... Small areas to improve... Penalty area deciosions and management + team roles and pre-match training.

    ;)... hope for a good match in Lisbon and the brace yourselves the WC is coming xD

    1. My oppinion is same as yours. For me, after good descriptions and observations in the report, the suitable mark would be as you said.

    2. I would agree with both of you if the starting mark was 8.4. In a very challenging match with a high level of control, the starting mark should be higher though. But maybe Edward and Thomas can further unfold how they have come to their mark. Thanks for the feedback.

    3. I would agree with both of you if we considered 8.4 as starting mark. But since we were in the Very good area (8.6) then a 0.2 minus seems more than appropriate.

    You wrote that referee team had 2 important mistakes? Why second mistake is reason for reducing BRich's mark and first one not?(We know that movement of goalkeeper is under AAr responsability during pen. kicks after the game)?
    If first one realy evaluated as penalty I think that it is Brich's mistake too more than second one - because referee should folow kicker and AAR Or AR golakeeper and goal line, isn't it?

  6. Really good report!
    Have you ever thought in puting some videos to show some situations of the match?
    It would be great to see the videos and read the report at the same time!
    Nice job BTW, keep it up!

    1. Dear Luiz, thanks for the feedback.
      We will very likely do that during the World Cup (only). The reason is simple: I don't want to wake up one morning and find the blog deleted due to copyright infringements. UEFA videos may, unfortunately, not be spread or even uploaded here. Otherwise it would be the first thing we would like to do.. :/
      Best regards.
