“François Letexier will referee the match between Real Madrid and Napoli, corresponding to the fifth matchday of the Group Stage of the Champions League, which will take place at the Santiago Bernabéu (Wednesday, 21:00 h; Movistar Champions League). The Frenchman will officiate a match for our team in this competition for the second time. The first time was in the first leg of last season’s quarter-finals, in which our team defeated Chelsea 2-0 at home.”
This should be a fairly manageable game for Letexier, as Real Madrid are just one point away from winning the group and advancing to the Round of 16 as a top-seeded team. Napoli have all but secured their presence in the next round as well, given that they will control their own destiny on their last game against Braga.
