This coming Wednesday Kiev Dynamo Kyiv will hold their first match of the Champions League 1/8 finals against Manchester City in Kiev at NSC "Olympiyskyi". Today, UEFA has appointed the referees for this game.
Antonio Mateu Lahoz is appointed as the match main referee. 38-year-old Spanish has served international matches since 2011. In recent years, he has judged top European cup matches. For example, in the current Champions League, he worked at the match Porto - Chelsea (2: 1).
Lahoz met Ukrainians twice: in 2013, he worked in the Europa League match between Skenderbeu - Chernomorets (1:0), and in 2014 - at a meeting of Dnepr and Tottenham (1: 0) in the same tournament.
