Brych ref for Napoli-Barcelona

German Felix Brych will officiate Napoli’s Champions League Round of 16 encounter with Barcelona on Tuesday.

The first leg kicks off at the Stadio San Paolo on Tuesday at 20.00 GMT.

UEFA announced they have assigned German referee Brych to this big match.

He is assisted by Mark Borsch and Stefan Lupp, with fourth official Harm Omers.

The VAR is Bastian Dankert.

Brych has crossed paths with Napoli twice before, with mixed results.

He officiated two defeats, at Chelsea and at home to Manchester City, but also a 4-2 victory over Benfica and the 2-0 success over Liverpool that was played in September.

His overall record with Italian teams is 10 wins, seven draws and six defeats.

Brych officiated six Barcelona matches, resulting in three wins, two draws and one defeat.

The Blaugrana are unbeaten with Brych since the very first game, a 1-0 Champions League semi-final defeat away to Chelsea in April 2012.

They’ve won the last three, including quarter-finals with Atletico Madrid in 2016 and Manchester United in 2019.
