German Felix Brych will officiate Milan’s Champions League trip to FC Porto, while Danny Makkelie is in charge when Inter host Sheriff Tiraspol.
The Rossoneri are particularly eager to keep a close eye on the team officiating their match after a great deal of controversy in their recent 2-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid.
That match was decided by a penalty awarded in stoppages for handball, but should’ve been overturned by VAR, because the footage clearly showed the Spanish player handled first.
UEFA have assigned a German team of officials for this game, with Felix Brych assisted by Mark Borsch, Stefan Lupp and fourth official Daniel Schlager.
The VAR is his fellow German Marco Fritz, with English Chris Kavanagh as the Assistant VAR.
This will be Brych’s sixth game involving Milan and so far the stalemate is the most common result, with three draws, one win and one defeat.
The most recent fixture was Manchester United’s 1-0 victory at San Siro in the Europa League Round of 16 in March 2021.
Inter host Sheriff Tiraspol under the guidance of Dutch referee Danny Makkelie.
He is assisted by Hessel Steegstra and Jan de Vries, with Joey Kooji as the fourth official.
The VAR is Jochem Kamphuis, assisted by Pol van Boekel.
