Zwayer referee for Juventus-Lyon

German referee Felix Zwayer will officiate the Champions League Round of 16 decider between Juventus and Olympique Lyonnais.

The first leg ended 1-0 for Lyon in France back in February and the second clash is behind closed doors in Turin on Friday.

UEFA announced that Zwayer has been assigned to this match, with Christian Dingert as his Video Assistant Referee.

The full group of officials are from Germany, including assistant referees Thorsten Schiffner and Marco Achmuller.

The fourth official is Tasos Sidiropoulos of Greece.

Zwayer’s record with Italian teams is of three wins, four draws and four defeats.

He has officiated just one Juventus match, a 2-0 Round of 16 Champions League defeat away to Atletico Madrid in February 2019.

It will be his first Lyon game, although he oversaw four French wins, two draws and only one loss.

Another German referee, Felix Brych, will officiate the other Round of 16 encounter between Manchester City and Real Madrid on Friday.
