Undiano to Referee El Clasico
NOTE: This refers to an appointment in the past. See the sidebar for updated appointments.
Alberto Undiano Mallenco has been chosen to referee El Clasico, Real Madrid v. Barcelona, at the Bernabeu on March 23.
Despite Carlos Velasco Carballo getting the call up for the World Cup, Undiano Mallenco is definitely the new hotness in Spanish refereeing.
In fact, he’s so hot that when he referees this match, he will become the first referee in 20 years to officiate both El Clasicos in a single season.
Overall, he’s refereed this fixture seven times.
