UEFA have appointed Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai as the man in charge for the return leg of the Champions League Quarterfinals between Real Madrid and FC Bayern Munich.

From Realmadrid.com:

Viktor Kassai has been appointed to referee the Champions League quarter-final second-leg clash between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich at the Santiago Bernabéu (Tuesday, 8:45pm CEST). This encounter will represent the fifth time that the Hungarian official has overseen a game involving Madrid in Europe's elite club competition.

Last season saw Kassai referee the quarter-final second-leg showdown between Real Madrid and Wolfsburg (3-0). He also took charge of the Whites' group-stage fixture against Liverpool at the Bernabéu in the 2014/15 edition of the competition (1-0) and was the man in the middle when Borussia Dortmund hosted Madrid in the group stage of the 2012/13 season (2-1). Meanwhile, in the 2011/12 campaign, he officiated in the semi-final second-leg encounter between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich (2-1).
