Champions League Quarterfinal Referees: April 2
For the record, Mark Clattenburg is on fire this year.
Just when I said I suspected that there would be no non-World Cup referees in the Champions League quarterfinals, he comes up big for Real Madrid v. Dortmund.
It’s a shame, really. Howard Webb’s struggles are well-known, and Clatts is having the year of his life. If the last 6-9 months were all that mattered, Mark would be in Brazil and not Howard. But I suppose a big Champions League match – his second in the past two months – is some consolation prize.
Milorad Mazic of Serbia is going to the World Cup, and he’ll take PSG v. Chelsea.
