Juve, Roma CL refs announced

Spaniard David Fernandez Borbalan will take charge of Juventus’ decisive Champions League clash with Olympiacos.

Max Allegri’s team make the trip to Greece in the knowledge that they must win in order to guarantee qualification for the Round of 16.

Fernandez, who presided over the recent La Liga Madrid derby between Atletico and Real, will be assisted by compatriots Raul Cabanero and Diego Barbero.

Meanwhile, German Tobias Stieler has been confirmed as the man to take charge of Roma’s home meeting with Azerbaijan side Qarabag.

Steilar officiated Juve’s home fixture with Olympiacos earlier in this season’s tournament, while he has only once before refereed a Roma match.

On that occasion, the Giallorossi ran out 4-1 winners over Viktoria Plzen in a Europa League group game.

Like the Old Lady, Roma know they must beat their opponents in order to be sure of progression. Should they fail to do so, they will be dependent on Atletico failing to defeat Chelsea.
