Brych ref for Juventus-Tottenham

German referee Felix Brych has been assigned to the Champions League Round of 16 between Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur.

The first leg kicks off in Turin on Tuesday at 19.45 GMT.

Brych will be assisted by Mark Borsch, Stefan Lupp, goal-line officials Bastian Dankert and Marco Fritz.

The Fourth Official will be Markus Hacker.

Juve have bad memories of Brych, as the 42-year-old from Munich was in charge when they lost the 2017 Champions League Final 4-1 to Real Madrid.

The Bianconeri have won twice and lost twice with Brych on the field.

Tottenham’s record with Brych is even worse, as the only two games he officiated were a 2-0 defeat at Udinese in October 2008 and 4-0 quarter-final drubbing at the hands of Real Madrid in April 2011.

That trip to Madrid saw Peter Crouch sent off within 15 minutes.
