Serie A Referees: March 8 and 9

The Juventus v. Fiorentina derby – at least it’s a derby for Fiorentina fans – is probably this week’s showpiece. Daniele Orsato (above) will be in the middle. Orsato is part of the triad of top Italian referees, along with Nicola Rizzoli and Gianluca Rocchi.

I’ve noticed that Orsato has been taking several big games lately as his profile rises. This could also indicate a bit of Rizzoli Saturation; in a recent match Rizzoli refereed, the BEIN sports guys kept referencing other matches and then pointing out that he reffed that match, too. It got to the point where an exasperated announcer asked: “Is he the only referee in Italy?!”
