Official – German Referee Daniel Siebert To Be In Charge Of Inter’s Champions League Clash With Real Madrid
The refereeing team for Inter’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid on Wednesday has been revealed, with Daniel Siebert to lead a team of German officials in taking charge of the match.
This is according to Italian media outlet L’Interista, who report that the Berlin-based referee Siebert will oversee the Nerazzurri’s group stage opener, with the 37-year-old to be assisted by an all-German team of officials.
Siebert’s two assistant referees will be Rafael Foltyn and Christian Gittelmann, while the role of the fourth official will be filled by Daniel Schlager.
Meanwhile, in the VAR booth the likes of Marco Fritz and Harm Osmers will look to ensure that any incorrect decisions on the pitch are reversed.
The Nerazzurri will hope that the focus of the match will be the action on the pitch rather than any refereeing controversy as they look to get a positive result against Real Madrid having lost both of their matches against the La Liga giants in last year’s edition of the competition.
