Wolfgang Stark will referee Real Madrid vs Barcelona (UCL)

German referee Wolfgang Stark will be responsible for refereeing the first leg of the semifinals of the Champions League on Wednesday that will face Real Madrid and Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

He was born November 20, 1969 in Landshut, Stark refereed this season the match Lyon vs Real Madrid (1-1) for the first leg of the last-16 knockout round. German referee did not note a clear penalty made by Gourcuff, which caused great anger in the Real Madrid coach, Jose Mourino, who did not hide his anger and attacked Stark at press conference after the game: "I am very angry, the referee must view the penalty. The action came five meters from the referee and the assistant. Four eyes were not able to see what everyone saw".

Wolfgang Stark. Lyon vs Real Madrid

Stark has refereed Real Madrid six times, with a record of three wins, one draw and two defeats. In matches of the group stage of the Champions League. Real Madrid beat Marseille, Rosenborg and Juventus and lost against Juventus and Lyon. The only draw came this season in the last-16 round duel against Lyon.

Last season, he directed the second leg of the last-16 knockout stage of the Champions League that Inter, then coached by Mourinho, won against Chelsea 0-1. The English team claimed two penalties, one especially clear by Walter Samuel on Drogba. The Ivory Coast striker was sent off after committing a foul on Motta. Chelsea also claimed a red card for Stankovic.

On the other hand, Guardiola not only commands his players to attack on the pitch. He has put on the breastplate, has taken the shield and sword and has begun to distribute hits with a single target: to put pressure on referees and Real Madrid.

When Guardiola uses irony is incisive. So when the press said the possibility that the referee Pedro Proença (Portugal) was commissioned to referee the match on Wednesday, his answer was blunt and direct: "Mourinho should be very happy". Pep only talked about his passion, football, now he changes the speech and talk about the referees.
