Champions League Referees: March 18
The referees for this week’s Champions League matches have been announced.
Chelsea will get Felix Brych (above) for their tie against Galatasaray. They can’t complain about that; Brych is about as strong a referee as they come and has recently unseated Wolfgang Stark as Germany’s top official. He’s on the list for Brazil, as well.
Well, let me clarify: They shouldn’t complain about that. But they probably will.
Sergei Karasev of Russia will handle Real Madrid v. Schalke, which is all but over. Hopefully, it’ll be a quiet night for him.
