Webb to take charge of Real Madrid-Bayern Munich first leg

AS AS 21/04/2014 EFE

British referee Howard Webb has been appointed to Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, UEFA has announced.

The 44-year-old father of three began refereeing at his father’s insistence, and has been a FIFA listed official since 2005.

In 2010, Webb took charge of the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Inter Milan at the Santiago Bernabéu, with the Italians – then under coach José Mourinho – claiming victory.

He was then awarded the final of that year’s World Cup in South Africa, which saw Spain beat the Netherlands 1-0 after extra-time.

The Premier League referee also oversaw La Roja’s 1-0 defeat to Switzerland in their opening group game of the tournament.

Webb, who has been selected to officiate at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil, was also the man in the middle for Spain’s Confederations Cup semi-final against Italy in 2013.

Of the Liga BBVA’s participants in this season’s Champions League, he has taken charge of Atlético Madrid’s 2-1 group-stage win at Porto, as well as two Real Madrid matches (a 2-2 away draw against Juventus and the 6-1 last-16 first-leg win over Schalke in Gelsenkirchen).

The official was also appointed to the second leg of the quarter-final between Atlético and Barcelona, in which Diego Simeone’s men claimed a 1-0 win to advance to the last four.

In 2011/12, he took charge of his only meeting between Real Madrid and Bayern. The clash at the Allianz Arena, also a semi-final first leg, ended in a 2-1 triumph for the Bundesliga outfit following a late Mario Gómez goal.

In the second leg, Los Blancos won by the same scoreline, but lost out on penalties to the Bavarians.
