Serie A Week 32 referees

The referees for Sunday’s Serie A fixtures have been confirmed, with Federico La Penna given Napoli-Milan.

La Penna has been one of the more card-happy referees this season, showing 82 yellows and five reds in his 16 games this season, while awarding 11 penalties.

Both sides have a mixed record with the Roman as Napoli have won just one of their three matches, conceding a spot-kick in the 4-2 defeat to Sampdoria.

As for Milan, he was the referee when they were thrashed 5-0 by Atalanta in January.

However, the Senegalese made it clear he preferred to stay at Napoli if given the opportunity.

“My family are very happy here and that makes me happy,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
