Historical achievement for Israeli referee Uriel Greenfeld: Today (Sunday) Greenfeld announced that he will officiate the Champions League game, in two days (23.3) between European champions Bayern Munich and Lazio at Olympico, which will be the first of two in the last eight of the Champions League. Greenfeld has already refereed Bayern this season, in the game against Salzburg in the home leg.
This is the first time an Israeli referee will play a knockout game, and he will do so together with an entire Israeli team – which will include assistant referees Roi Hassan and Idan Yarkoni, the fourth referee will be Gal Leibowitz and Roi Reinschreiber will assist Juan Martinez Monroe at VAR.
The referees hope that Bayern’s game against Lazio will not be Greenfeld’s last this season. He is expected to get one more game in the quarter-finals of the Champions League or semi-finals of the Europa League, as long as he impresses at the Olimpico. Israel hopes that this will also advance him to judge Euro 2020.
Greenfeld has managed three European games this season: two in the home leg of the Champions League, the first was between Frantzvaros and Juventus, and the second (as mentioned) between Bayern and Salzburg, both in November. In December he also managed the match between Real Sociedad and Napoli in the Europa League. In the last game, he also handed out a second yellow and red card to Bayern player Mark Roca.
