Europa League Referees: March 20
Always check “Latest Appointments” on the sidebar for updated referee appointments.
Here are the referees for the Europa league ties held on Thursday, March 20.
Couple of interesting notes:
I haven’t posted the Premier League appointments yet, but I noticed that Howard Webb is not on the list for any matches this upcoming weekend at all. It could possibly be because he’s taking a Europa League game Thursday. Not just any game, either, but arguably the biggest: Fiorentina v. Juventus.
Like Webb, Pedro Proenca of Portugal is taking a Europa League match after having officiated the Champions League earlier. He’ll be at Betis v. Sevilla.
We see Slovenia’s Damir Skomina (above) for the first time since the winter break, officiating at Benfica v. Tottenham. Skomina was a candidate for the World Cup, but he (and his assistants) stumbled last year and didn’t make the cut. This match is already all but over (sad to say, as a Spurs fan), so UEFA may be easing him back in after a rough year.
