    There is a switch of the referees between matches Crusaders FC (NIR) - KS Skënderbeu (ALB) and Lincoln (GIB) - Mitdjylland (DEN). The winner of the second mentioned match could possibly play with APOEL Nicosia and UEFA doesn't want to let the referee's team from Cyprus in action for this match.


  2. Anonymous20/7/15 12:00

    There was a change in Steaua - Trenčín. Paweł Sokolnicki will be AR2 instead of Michał Pierściński.

    I can't under no circumstances defend or justify red card for DOGSO from Benoit Bastien in Lithuania.

    00:54 in the video.

    Difficult match though.

  4. Anonymous22/7/15 21:28

    Yes, It was quite strange decisions. For my opinion were not circumstances for DOGSO. But from other side this player was already cautioned , so the second YC+Red are ok.

  5. Anonymous22/7/15 22:58

    I did not see the match Videoton-The New Saints. Can someone tell me why Finley (TNS) got a red card, please?

    Thank you!

    Strict, no nonsense Clancy in Lech - Sarajevo. One key match incident - an acceptable/good no-call:
