Serie A Referees, Week 2

The Italians are basically entering their second week of play after the international break.

As I’ve mentioned before, the addition of added referees on the goal lines means the center referees “rotate” more than you see in England, so World Cup Final referee Nicola Rizzoli (above) will only feature as an add at Lazio this week.

There is an interesting article making the rounds in which Rizzoli talked about the upcoming Serie A season, how traditionally difficult that league is for referees, and how technologies like video reviews (he’s not a fan) and vanishing spray (he is) affect the game. Good read.

There are other Italian refs besides Rizzoli, however, including two very good ones on the FIFA list:

Daniele Orsato will take Fiorentina v. Genoa, and Gianluca Rocchi (widely considered to be second only to Rizzoli and often seen in UEFA competition) will be at Hellas Verona v. Palermo on Monday.

Saturday’s marquee match between Juventus and Udinese will be referred by Antonio Damato.
