Clattenburg In Charge Of Bayern/Barca Clash

Englishman Mark Clattenburg will take charge of Tuesday’s second leg between Bayern and Barça in Munich.

The 40-year-old has already refereed Barcelona in this season’s Champions League, overseeing their 3-1 quarter-final first-leg victory over Paris Saint-Germain. The ‘Azulgranas’ go into the game at the Allianz Arena with a 3-0 lead.

Clattenburg has been a good omen for other Spanish sides in the competition this term. He was also in the middle for Atlético de Madrid’s 2-0 win in Malmö and Athletic de Bilbao’s 1-0 victory away to Shakhtar Donetsk.

The other two Champions League games Clattenburg has officiated this season both ended 1-1, between Zenit and Monaco in the group stage and between Basel and Porto in the first leg of the round of 16.
