Dortmund-PSG, UEFA makes an important announcement


By: Manu Tournoux

UEFA has opted for a relatively inexperienced, but promising, referee to officiate the match between Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday.

This is a fairly strong choice on the part of UEFA. For the meeting between Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain, the Swede Glenn Nyberg was appointed. A 35-year-old referee, still relatively inexperienced, since this will only be his sixth Champions League match as head referee.

We can see this as a great mark of confidence in Mr. Nyberg, who seems to be a referee who is on the rise in the eyes of UEFA. This season, he has led three great matches: Bayern Munich-Manchester United (4-3), Sevilla-Arsenal (1-2) and Manchester City-Leipzig (3-2), for a record of six yellow cards and one penalty. whistled in three matches. Now he is inheriting one of the most anticipated matches of this 6th and final day of the group stage.

The Swede has already crossed paths with several French clubs, such as Nantes and Nice last season in the Europa League and Europa Conference League, as well as Olympique de Marseille this season for the Phocéens’ victory at AEK Athens ( 0-2). He also brought good luck to Kylian Mbappé, during the Bondynois’ quadruplet against Kazakhstan (8-0) with the Blues at the Parc des Princes, in November 2021.
