Barca now know referee for Champions League opener

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 1,212

A relatively unknown figure in Sandro Scharer of Switzerland will be the main in charge of the match between Barcelona and Ferencvaros. It will be the club's first Champions League match of the season and with Ronald Koeman as coach.

Swiss referee Sandro Scharer has been appointed to the Champions League group G clash between Barcelona and Ferencvaros at the Camp Nou. 

It will be an all Swiss officiating team with the exception of the VARs who will be Italian. MassimilIano Irrati will lead the VAR crew. 

Tuesday's game at the Camp Nou will kick off at 21:00 CET and will be Barca's first European game since being humiliated 8-2 by Bayern Munich in Lisbon back in August. 

After the loss to Getafe on Saturday, it is all the more important to beat the Hungarian side in their Champions League opener. Anything other than three points will be considered a huge failure.
