Milorad Mažić selected for UEFA Super Cup 2016

Serbian Elite referee Milorad Mažić has been appointed by UEFA Referees Committee to officiate 2016 Super Cup, to be played between Real Madrid and Sevilla on 9 August 2016 in Trondheim, Norway. 


The 43-year old was, until the last days of the tournament, among the candidates for EURO final together with English Mark Clattenburg and Hungarian Viktor Kassai. This will be his first final in a UEFA competition, surely a deserved achievement after many seasons with regular performances at high level.   To complete the officiating team, the Serbian will have his regular assistant referees and additional assistant referees.

For the first time in the recent years, a fourth official from a different country has been appointed by UEFA Referees Committee: Szymon Marciniak from Poland will take this duty, while his compatriot Tomasz Listkiewicz will work as reserve assistant referee.

  1. Not injustice. Clattenburg was the best.

    1. It´s nonsense write now about referees
      for final 2017. And Rocchi is not one
      good candidate.

  3. I would like to hear your opinion about possible chances for CL and EL final this year, after being appointed for this final?
    Chefren,Ray and others? :)

    1. Knowing Collina and the committee, I think that nothing will change. In case of good performances, Mazic will have his chances for EL or CL final. Just think to Clattenburg and CL + EURO final in less than two months. :)

    2. In recent years, the referee of the Super Cup wasn't appointed for either of the 2 finals. Let's see if PLC will change that.

    3. Of course the choice of the referee for the final depends on the teams in final.
      I think Marciniak has some chances for the EL final, Brych is my number 1 for the CL final.

    4. I really think that it's too early for Marciniak. He has time for WC,Euro (again) and a lot of time for EL and CL.
      I hope commitee won't 'burn' him with appointing for some final.

  5. Candidates for CL: Brych, Eriksson, maybe Skomina and Mazic
    Candidates for EL: Mazic, Rocchi, Marciniak and why not Kassai (who seems to be clearly back in shape).

  7. Free kick to Sevilla and at least YC to Isco should have been given in the 5th minute. Situation in front of AAR1.

    1. Agreed, reckless tackle and thus missed YC at least for AAR1.

  8. Perfect YC to Vitolo for persistent infringing the LoTG.

  9. Big call by Grujić...

    1. Tad harsh but I think still acceptable penalty.

      Delete
    2. Brave call. I think that there was a contact with attackers right foot.
      *BTW: Thank you for observing this game, when everyone are watching the Olympics.

  10. Good Mazic until now. Not so much gestures as usual, which appears much calmer. Penalty could be given. Acceptable. Over all, good performance. Good to see how the 5th official managed the goalkeeper, while Mazic managed the players. Good teamwork.

    1. 93' Very hard situation for AR2 Djurdjevic. I think that was very good decision to play on.

      Delete
    2. It was confirmed in Polish TV that there was no offside. Therefore, a good call by AR2.

      Delete
    3. I didn't like the goal, but I liked the good call by AAR2 Далибор Ђурђевић :)

  11. Too many late, sometimes cynical kicks. I think the Serbian referee will be unhappy he didn't kick them out of the game earlier.

  12. Another good call by Grujic. Correct 2nd YC.

    1. This is his night. 3 correct decisions. :)

    2. Great spot. Well done!

  13. 98' Courageous decision by AAR1 Grujic. Good decision.

  14. Oh, what a match for Grujic! Another excellent call. Pulling by Ramos gave him advantage. Very brave indeed.

  15. So far so good.
    Refs shows class

  16. And another good call by Grujic, who signalled a free kick prior to a RM goal. Once again a good decision. He is heading to a straight 8,7 I think.

    However, I agree with RayHD that there are too many borderline fouls, which results in 90%-YC's (not given) and close after that 100% YC's (given). Good decisions, apart from each other, but the result is that the given cards sometimes seem a bit uneven.

    1. I think Mazic wanted to avoid cards and keep them in pocket as long as he can. But, he had to give several of them at the end, and all of them were correct.

    2. I understand that, and I don't think he made real mistakes with the yellow cards. It only seemed a bit uneven sometimes, as I said. Maybe a part of the 'problem', is that Mazic isn't the referee who can end the fouls by a very powerful warning. Maybe it also seemed like that, because TV never showed the warnings by Mazic, but that's also because they always took some time. And, as I said, a warning for a 90% YC and a YC seconds later for a 100% YC always seem a bit unfair, no matter how correct they are. That's always the risk in keeping cards in the pocket.

      Still, don't misunderstand me, I think he did a really good job, with no important wrong decisions, correct red card, correct disallowed goal and correct penalty (for all of which I think Grujic was responsible). Furthermore, correct rejected penalty appeal, good foul detection, good positioning. I think the note should be 8,5.

      And ofcourse, Grujic should get 8,7 at least.

  17. 117' Excellent no PK call. Good position to see this situation.

  18. Missed YC to Franco Vázquez for very reckless tackle (120+2'). Lacking concentration?

    1. Not mandatory. Last seconds of Super Cup match, player wanted to reach the ball. Not necessary to be given YC.

      Delete
    2. IMO obligatory due to reckless character of the foul. Nonetheless, I understand your 'arguments'.

      Delete
  19. Serbian team could be very satisfied with their performance. Excellent job from whole team, 4-5 crucial decisions, all of them brilliantly solved. Of course, Grujic had his evening - 8.6-8.7 to him, rest about 8.5.

  20. I rewatched carefully all three major incidents, with AAR1 involved.
    1) I would deem the penalty as acceptable call. Very likely there was a contact, and this can be enough for a whistle. Surely not a mistake.
    2) Sending off for second YC absolutely correct.
    3) Disallowed goal: before the coming of the ball Sergio Ramos pushes slightly the opponent. The free kick can be given. Perhaps in this case, Grujić made too many blatant gestures, he has just to communicate with referee, without making his calls "public".
    So, I would praise Grujić for his excellent work and also alertness. There are arguments for backing him in all the incidents.

    1. At first I also thought that the penalty was rather nothing. But Ramos clearly raises his leg while his opponent is passing him and if there is contact at the feet or legs, which only AAR1 can see (not really visible from these replay angles), it is a clear penalty.

      The 2nd YC is a good example of a reckless stemp of the stud onto the opponent's foot. Clear sending-off, 90% SPA, 100% reckless.

      The disallowed goal - looks harsh, but well seen, although the defender was the first one holding Ramos. The more effective and punishable offence came from the attacker though, so... good call. Maybe the communication could be a bit more discreet. Nonetheless with many fans loudly celebrating the goal gestures can be important to quickly provide the necessary information if, via micro, verbal ways of communication are problematic.

      3 correct decisions, 1-2 of them expected.

  21. I carefully looked at and analyzed the penalty-kick situation (body language, positions referees/AAR1). Ramos conceded the spot kick for a trip on Vitolo as he cut inside- faul is obvious. But, I think this is only Mazic's decision. Why, you ask?Look carefully! I think that Grujic hadn't a good angle to see the contact that is an offense, but only Mazic who great stepped down from the diagonal and opened a "window". I am sure that a penalty-kick Mazic's decision. Congratulations to the entire team for the performance.
