UEFA have appointed Czech referee Pavel Kralovec as the man in charge of Real Madrid’s home game against Dortmund in what will be the last match of the Champions League group stage.

The Czech referee Pavel Kralovec will oversee Wednesday’s match between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund at the Santiago Bernabéu, corresponding to matchday six of the Group Stage in the Champions League (8:45pm CET).

It will be the fourth time he has officiated a Whites’ game in this competition. In 2012/13 he refereed Real Madrid-Ajax in the Group Stage (4-1), while in the 2015/16 season he covered Roma 0-2 Real Madrid, in the first leg of the round of 16 . The last time he was involved in a Real Madrid game was last year in Madrid’s home draw against Legia Warsaw in the first phase of the competition (3-3).

Los Blancos clinched their presence in the Round of 16 when they beat APOEL two weeks ago.
