This Weekend’s Referees: Serie A

Here are the referees in Serie A for this weekend, February 22-24.

Chievo and Catania will be a fairly big game, considering that the two teams are fighting to avoid relegation. Daniele Orsato, one of Italy’s top-rated refs, will handle that one.

League leaders Juventus will take on mid-table Torino, refereed by top Italian ref Nicola Rizzoli (above) and his fabulous hair.

On the Champions League front, Rizzoli has already refereed this round, and Orsato is probably out due to his Saturday match. The next possibilities for Italy would be Gianluca Rocchi and Paolo Tagliavento, both of whom are added officials on Sunday. It is possible that they could be available for Champions League, but are probably more likely to show up in Europa on Thursday.

Italy had two new referees attend the last UEFA Introductory Course, including Davide Massa and Marco Guida, so we may see at least one new face from Italy. Massa is refereeing Saturday, but Guida could be a dark horse for Europa.
