Serie A Week 26 referees

The referees for Serie A Week 26 are announced as Paolo Mazzoleni is given the Derby della Capitale and Napoli-Juventus is entrusted to Gianluca Rocchi.

Mazzoleni’s last big game saw him controversially send off Kalidou Koulibaly during Napoli’s 1-0 defeat to Inter on Boxing Day, despite the defender suffering racial abuse.

Rocchi [pictured], meanwhile, officiated the League meeting between Napoli and Juve in April 2018, which ended in a 1-0 win for the Partenopei, courtesy of a late Koulibaly header.

Elsewhere, Luca Banti is handed Inter’s trip to Cagliari, with Rosario Abisso starting his three-round ban, and Paolo Valeri will oversee Milan-Sassuolo.
