Kuipers for Juventus-Fiorentina

Dutchman Bjorn Kuipers will officiate the Europa League Juventus-Fiorentina clash, while Porto-Napoli goes to Pavel Kralovec.

The Europa League Round of 16 kicks off on Thursday with the first leg ties and there are three Italian clubs in action.

Unfortunately, two of them are in the same game and that means one will be going home after this stage of the competition.

The Juventus Stadium hosts the first leg of the Bianconeri’s clash with Fiorentina, which will be officiated by 40-year-old Dutch referee Kuipers.

He doesn’t have a good record with Juve, as his only previous game with them was a 4-1 Europa League defeat at Fulham in 2010.

Napoli visit Porto on Thursday and their match is handed to Czech referee Kralovec.
