UEFA has determined the referee team for the third round of the Champions League group stage.
The group of referees became famous in the match of the third group round of the Champions League between Real Madrid and Shakhtar Donetsk.
UEFA entrusted the match to Slovak referees. According to the official website of the organization, the main referee of the match is Ivan Kruzhlyak.
Compatriots Branislav Khanchko and Jan Pozor will help him on the line. The fourth referee was Peter Kralovic. Ovidiu Hatsegan from Romania will be in charge of the VAR system.
It should be noted that Kruzhlyak crossed paths with Shakhtar three times before and the Pitmen won all three matches: 2:0 against Istanbul Basaksehir in 2016, 3:2 against Hoffenheim in 2018 and 3:0 against Wolfsburg in 2020.
Remember, earlier it became known that the doors of Real Madrid in the match with Shakhtar could be defended by the Ukrainian goalkeeper Andriy Lunin.
