UEFA have appointed Polish referee Szymon Marciniak as the man in charge of the upcoming UEFA Super Cup Final between Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid, which will be played in Tallinn in less than two weeks.

Szymon Marciniak is set to take charge of the European Super Cup clash between Real Madrid and Atlético on the 15th of August at the A. Le Coq Arena in Tallinn (9:00pm). It will be the fourth time he oversees a game involving the Whites, all three previously coming at the Santiago Bernabéu.

In the Group Stage of the last Champions League, the Polish official took charge of the clash with Tottenham (1-1). In the previous edition and also in the Group Stage, he oversaw the meeting with Borussia Dortmund (2-2), while in 15/16, he refereed the second leg of the last-sixteen tie against Roma (2-0).

Marciniak won’t have an easy game as Atletico de Madrid will want to play with a lot of intensity. He wasn’t an obvious choice but he is a solid referee who shouldn’t have too many issues.
