Change in the classic braid. Mateu Lahoz, who was the referee chosen by the Technical Committee of Referees for tomorrow’s game, has been injured and will not be able to direct one of the key games of the season.
The Valencian referee led his last game in the Champions League, specifically, Bayern-PSG in which Mbappé made another splendid performance. Mateu suffered his injury in one of his training sessions this week.
In this way, the RFEF has informed through a statement the substitute for Mateu Lahoz. And, finally, Gil Manzano will be in charge of directing the Classic.
The Extremaduran referee was going to rest at first this day by not having any match assigned. Their last managed meeting was Atlético de Madrid’s defeat at Sánchez Pizjuán last weekend. Soto Grado will continue to be in the VAR.
As for the Classics, Gil Manzano already led a match between Madrid and Barça in the 14/15 season, a match that resulted in a 3-1 victory for the Whites. At that stage, Carlo Ancelotti was directing Real Madrid and the goals from Cristiano, Pepe and Benzema were enough to overcome Neymar’s initial goal.
