Kassai to referee Bayern-Barcelona clash

21 April 2013 15:51

UEFA have appointed Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai for the Champions League semi-final first leg between Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

Kassai has built a good reputation in recent years, officiating at both Euro 2012 and the 2010 World Cup, and became the youngest man to referee a top-flight game in Hungary at the age of 23 in 1998.

The 37-year-old will be assisted by an all-Hungarian team, including Gabor Eros, Gyorgy Ring, Robert Kispal and Tamas Bognar – all of whom were officiating when Barcelona overcame Manchester United 3-1 in the 2011 final at Wembley – while Mihaly Fabian completes the line-up.

In addition to the 2011 final, Kassai also refereed Barca's 4-0 Champions League last-16 win over AC Milan in March.

The Hungarian took charge of last season's semi-final between Bayern and Real Madrid, and awarded a controversial penalty against David Alaba for a perceived handball, with the ensuing booking ruling the defender out of the final against Chelsea.

Luiz Gustavo and Holger Badstuber were then issued yellow cards in extra-time, also ruling them out of the final at Allianz Arena.

Kassai has overseen five Champions League games this season, showing 27 yellow cards and no reds.
