UEFA have appointed French referee Stephanie Frappart as the woman in charge of Real Madrid’s home match against Celtic, which will be played next Wednesday at 6:45pm CET.

Stéphanie Frappart will officiate the match between Real Madrid and Celtic, on matchday six of the Champions League group stage, which will be played at the Santiago Bernabéu (Wednesday 6:45pm CET). The French referee will take charge of a match involving the madridistas for the first time in this competition.

Real Madrid will secure the first spot in the group with a win, no matter what happens between Shakhtar and Leipzig. Los Blancos could also win the group if they match Leipzig’s result, meaning that a draw would be enough if Leipzig can’t beat Shakhtar in Ukraine.

Los Blancos are the heavy favorites to earn the victory against Celtic, but the same could’ve been said this Sunday and Girona managed to get a 1-1 draw. Ancelotti’s men need to regain some confidence and momentum and the home game against Celtic should be a good opportunity for them to do so.
